With its sun-swept mineral landscapes enhanced by a few clusters of olive trees, Crete is a rough diamond immersed in the warm waters of the Mediterranean. Its cultural heritage, its charming white villages and its creeks fringed by a cerulean sea are not to be missed.

It is on the northern flank of this mythical archipelago, a few kilometres east of Heraklion and a few steps from the sea, that the Nana Golden Beach This establishment, totally refurbished for the summer of 2020, has new surprises in store for its guests: modernised rooms, new menus for its restaurants, a completely redesigned spa but above all the development of an eco-friendly philosophy to integrate gently and respectfully into the surrounding landscape…

Not far from the archaeological treasures of the Heraklion museums, the ruins of the Palace of Malia and the Lassithi plateau, this family address is an excellent starting point to discover the assets of the aptly named Island of the Gods.



Situated between palm trees and bougainvilleas, the pavilions of the Nana Golden Beach evoke the traditional architecture of the gods’ island: facades dressed in white or embellished with ochre, adorable stone walls and even, at the bend of a small square, an ancient fountain to refresh with style the hot Greek days. Down to the smallest detail, the spirit of authentic Crete floats through the estate: above the doors and windows, immaculate pediments even recall the architecture of ancient Greece!

Spread over an incredible surface area, the resort has been designed as a small village planted with trees and very pleasant to walk through. The facades punctuated with terraces and balconies bear witness to an architecture that faces outwards and preserves views of the blue of the sea or the swimming pools.

In addition to this enchanting setting, the Nana Golden Beach offers you:

  • 7 restaurants
  • 6 bars
  • 7 swimming pools
  • 1 spa
  • 1 hammam
  • 1 hot bath tub
  • 1 beauty salon
  • 1 fitness room
  • 3 tennis courts
  • beach volleyball
  • water activities
  • horse riding
  • 1 high quality babysitting service
  • 1 incredible kids-club



Just as with all the hotel’s services, the rooms, suites, bungalows and apartments have also benefited from a complete renovation. The spaces have been rethought and redesigned, and the windows enlarged to leave all the room it deserves to be seen! The facilities have been modernized (49′ flat screens, new technologies in the bathrooms…) and the comfort has been completely rethought (new mattresses and selection of ultra-soft pillows). The Nana Beach experience… only gets better!

Elegantly dressed in a combination of neutral colours and light wood, the Family Room has everything to please families. A few subtle touches of azure on the quilts of the beds or on their soft cushions are reminiscent of the sea spray, which can be seen from the terrace. The elegant grey bathroom with its waxed concrete effect walls (hyper-contemporary!), its arge rain shower and its double washbasin, lso seduces demanding families.

Larger families will be delighted with the four walls of the Seaview Suite. Dressed in wood, this cosy suite has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. An ideal layout to preserve everyone’s privacy! The furnished balcony verlooking the sea is one of its best assets for a pleasant evening. On the decoration side, we love the comfortable wing chairs and the details of the woodwork that give this suite a slightly Scandinavian look.



Nana Golden Beach takes families on a real gastronomic world tour: from the famous Cretan diet to Japanese delicacies: the range is wide! The establishment has thought of everyone: wine lovers will be delighted to find high quality local and international wines at their table, while vegetarians and gluten-intolerant people will find suitable options on the menus of all the restaurants! Little guests are not to be outdone: all restaurants “à la carte” have children’s menus. We also love the “Children’s early dinner , adapted to the rhythms of your blond heads, as well as the appetizing kids-corner offering options specially designed for them. Enjoy your meal!

In addition to Athina and Thalassa, the two buffet restaurants that offer a daily bevy of varied delicacies, several à la carte restaurants allow you to taste new flavours.

As its name inspired by local literature indicates, Zorbas honours the flavours of the country. Here you can enjoy a Greek salad, Cretan-style crostini, stuffed eggplant or zucchini and a wide choice of dishes enhanced with capers, Kalamata olives and feta cubes.

Feel like staying in the Mediterranean basin but want to vary a little? Firenze takes you to Italy for a gourmet meal: ribbons of pasta, fragrant risottos and other delicacies made in Tuscany turn the heads of food lovers.

How can you resist the Poséidon ? In a contemporain setting, this restaurant, under the sign of the god of the sea and the oceans, caters to lovers of marine delights and iodine flavours. At the cutting edge of refinement, all the dishes have been devised by Michelin-starred Chef Lefteris Lazarou.

The well-being of families is at the heart of the Nana Golden Beach philosophy. No detail is accidentally left for the Little Guests, whatever their age: for babies, baby phones, adapted bathtubs as well as strollers are available. For the comfort of the little ones it is also possible to buy nappies for the swimming pool, beach sandals and buoys adapted to the “Mini Market” of the hotel. Toddlers love the kids-corner of the resort’s restaurants and enjoy the activities of the kids club.

At the Kids Club, it is in a playful environment and supervised by passionate and multilingual professionals that your toddlers spend busy days! In addition to the exceptional water park with its numerous jets and waterfalls, the two paddling pools and its outdoor playground partly protected from the sun, the kids club also benefits from 5 indoor rooms all dedicated to the fun and well-being of children. From morning to evening, various workshops will keep your blond heads busy: printing and drawing on T-shirts, group games on the beach, cartoon viewing, cinema evenings… The magic show is one of the must-see events: stars in your eyes guaranteed!

Teenagers will improve their skills on the tennis court with professional coaches or learn how to glide over the waves during a memorable water-skiing session. Fun guaranteed! Lovers of team games or board games spend their afternoons around the table tennis and billiard tables and discover the board games available to the little champions. On the beach, Beach Volley and horse riding are the order of the day.

Our favourite is the “Discover, learn, clean” programme run by the Nana Golden Beach and the Aquarium of Crete. Along the beach and the rocks surrounding the hotel, there is a rich biotope and a multitude of species that can be discovered with the family. This is an opportunity to introduce the youngest children to the preservation of marine fauna and flora.



All means are good to discover the Isle of the gods. On foot, our steps will take you to the Lassithi Plateau, a fertile region also known as the Valley of the Mills. In the shadow of Mount Selena, many itineraries lead you through the countryside.

More sea than land? Family diving lessons are a great success. Within snorkelling reach, it’s a magical world that can be discovered… To complete this exploration of the seabed, the Crete Aquarium of Gournes and its rich educational program teaches you everything you ever wanted to know about manta rays, jellyfish, sea turtles. Both young and old are asking for more!

Every evening, as night falls on Crete, both young and old come to the Nana Golden Beach Auditorium. Comfortably seated on the bleachers and under the stars, they attend the numerous shows and mini-theatres held there. For a colourful moment that brings a touch of magic to your stay.

The hotel’s Water Park is not enough for you? If so, the Watercity Water Park, with its slides and pools, is the perfect place to spend an unforgettable day full of slides and laughter just a few miles from Nana Golden Beach. At the end of the day, the whirlpools and calmer rivers welcome you to relax…



It is the authentic and rural Crete that we discover in the preserved setting of the Cretan Museum of Lychnostatis. This small open-air museum is a real parenthesis beyond expectation where life and traditions are put in the spotlight. Stone mills, small gardens, mythology and local craftsmanship give a special charm to the old stones of this ethnological museum.

If parents want to be kings of the night for a pleasant evening, the Guest Night is the perfect opportunity to wiggle your hips to the sound of live music Once a week, this festive event puts some glitter in your evenings. Meanwhile, the children sleep soundly, supervised by one of the hotel’s baby-sitters.

To escape and regain serenity, there’s nothing like diving into hot waters of the Health Club, in its whirlpool or in the gentle steam of its hammam. To complete this moment of relaxation, treat yourself to a timeless moment in the expert hands of the masseuses, hairdressers or nail salon professionals. You’ll come out transformed!
