With its sun-swept mineral landscapes enhanced by a few clusters of olive trees, Crete is a diamond in the rough bathed by 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 Nana Princess Suites has taken up residence. This 5-star establishment gives travelling tribes the opportunity to escape smoothly, in a hyper-contemporary setting.
Not far from the archaeological treasures of the Heraklion Museums, the ruins of the Palace of Malia and the Lasithi Plateau, Nana Princess Suites is an excellent starting point to discover the assets of the aptly named Island of the Gods.
At first glance, it is the striking beauty and radical modernity of the minimalist lines of Nana Princess Suites that catches the eye. Its large glass surfaces are enhanced by the black stone of the region, whose grey reflections are reflected in the façades, walls and terraces. This combination of stone and glass contributes to the elegance of the entire resort, while at the same time recalling the island’s stripped landscapes and the mountains in the background.
More than monumentality, it is horizontality that the architects have valued: the rooms are nestled in one-storey pavilions with flat roofs dressed in greenery. Arranged in terraces, each one benefits from privileged sunshine and a splendid view of the sea that no obstacle disturbs. The small, intimate alleys that criss-cross the estate are reminiscent of the alleys of the surrounding villages.
At the height of its stars, Nana Princess Suites offers a range of services and infrastructure at the cutting edge of technology. In addition to Hersonissos, its private beach, an exceptional spa and top-of-the-range restaurants, it also has an art gallery open to the public and a state-of-the-art kids club (shared with the neighbouring Nana Golden Beach). Enough to feel like royalty!
Nana Princess offers:
Rare enough to be emphasized, all the rooms of Nana Princess open onto the sea, with the blue of the Greek waves joined by the blue of the sky as a horizon. This young destination, opened in June 2018, offers high-tech rooms, at the cutting edge of comfort and modernity (televisions hidden behind giant mirrors, the possibility of varying the lighting to create different atmospheres, private whirlpools with chromotherapy…).
Elegantly dressed in a combination of neutral colours and subtle touches of light wood, the 42 m2 Deluxe Junior Suite has everything to please. Its exceptional terrace and private heated swimming pool, open to the Mediterranean, give it a very special charm. At nightfall, you can slide into its warm waters to listen to the sound of the waves under the stars… For parents, a comfortable King-size bed guarantees soft nights, while the sofa bed in the lounge area easily accommodates a small child. And for babies, good news, cots are free!
The aptly named Ambassador Wellbeing Suite guarantees a pleasant stay for families who enjoy life to the fullest. The timeless elegance of the beige tones, enhanced by the colours of the works of art that adorn its walls, creates an atmosphere that is as pleasant as it is sophisticated. Its bathroom, all in marble, is composed of a rain shower with chromotherapy and a deep bathtub. The cosmetics and bath products are branded Hermès. A real bonus and top of luxury: the fully equipped gym (treadmill, exercise bench, dumbbells), the veranda open onto a mosaic whirlpool, as well as the private sauna and hammam! With its 92 m² dedicated to comfort and well-being, the Ambassador Wellbeing Suite is perfect for two adults and two children.
The Presidential Villa is a cocoon of well-being in white and blue on 250 m². Its vast terrace offers probably one of the most beautiful views of the entire hotel. In this prestigious setting, nothing is left to chance, from the intense blue paintings that evoke calm and dreams, to the precious onyx bathroom, to the large heated swimming pool preserved from the world by elegant local stone walls. With its three bedrooms, it can accommodate up to 7 people. To calm the body and mind after a day at the sea, the villa is also equipped with a private sauna. Signed StarPool, the famous Italian brand crowned for its innovative design, there is a good chance that you won’t be able to do without it…
