Impossibly glamorous with movie good looks, this incredible property is styled after the water palaces of Minoan Kings & Venetian Nobles that once ruled Crete. Affectionate and generous with an idiosyncratic character, Amirandes is quite unique. Life is staged around the ancient lagoon and feels beyond a hotel & beyond a residence. The mythology of this resort lies on its design. A modern day minoan palace swept by sea breeze. Amirandes dazzles in the moonlight. Luxury here is ancient. Made of water, minoan marbles, stone and woods. Adorned with palmerai, pithoi, herbs and olive trees. The sea surrounds Amirandes. A nature reserve on the right, an intimate sandy cove on the left and an ancient sea lagoon in the middle. 60 private pools and an olympic-sized seafront piscine make up a water fantasy. Let them take you on a journey to the cool dining world of Amirandes with its 10 restaurant & bars and their fantastic, original cuisine. Among them the one and only MINOTAUR. Pablo Picasso drew himself as a Minotaur, the mythical half-man half-taurus (bull) creature that lived in the Labyrinth of the palace of Knossos, a few kilometers from Amirandes. He adored ceramics and created them for 25 years (1947-1973). An amazing collection of genuine Picasso ceramics adorns the "Minotaur" restaurant in honor of ancient ceramic art and the way it inspired the masters of the 20th century. At Minotaur, truly stylish Italian food is our speciality. Located by the lagoon, Minotaur is an incomparable Italian restaurant of impeccable character. It embodies Italian style – classic sophistication and inimitable refinements. A culinary journey through geographies and centuries, just wonderful with references to mythology, cultures and traditions still alive today. Καλή όρεξη.

Our dear Amirandes… it just feels right to be back at this special place. We’ve traveled the world from Australia via Bali to Cuba and Tokio, but this place is the one that feels like second home. Coming back there, becomes an import part of the year for us. Already for the third time and hopefully will stay this way for many more years. This place is breathtaking beautiful as it looks in the pictures. Already when you arrive and make the first step into the reception, you can feel your mind relax and just let all the stress go. It is something about this atmosphere in this place, it’s magical. You can feel the love for details in every little thing, but the most amazing are the service and the people, who work there… It’s nothing impossible in this Hotel, everybody try to make every little and most crazy wish possible. There are different kind of 5 * hotels, but this one just doesn’t feel like a hotel, people there becoming attached to your heart and makes it difficult to leave even more. First of all you always come back to people, who give you a warm feelings. The Amirandes Boutique Hotel is not a huge House, so it has a very familiar spirit and an amazing quality. You can feel quality in everything, the food Is amazing, all the restaurants are differently great. You definitely have to try “blue monkey”, not only sushi is amazing there. We love the local products, so the wine, the “raki” from the Grecofarm, the olive oil, I could go on and on… You can trust the guys in the restaurants, they will help you with a right choice. Special thank on this place goes to Anna, from Petrino restaurants, she is an amazing strong and funny person, every lunch was something special. But also thank you to Costa for always a great wine choice and Tania from blue monkey, you are very special for our daughter… I must write some words about the children in Amirandes. There is no other place in the world (and we’ve seen a lot), where the children are so well treated. You can feel the love and heartiness all over it. The children get a special status. On this place my special thank goes to the girls in the Grecoland (Kids Club). Charoula you and the girls are amazing, our daughter waited every day to come and play with you. So many beautiful ideas for the kids. So what can I say about the fitness department… Niki you are a crazy, beautiful soul… amazing person who loves what she is doing with her whole heart, you become special to our whole family…and also there is tennis, our daughter started in this place last year and since then she loves it. We had to get back to Dusan and Emilio, amazing tennis coaches, who made an amazing job with so much fun, you are just special. all together- thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you made every moment special, beautiful and just unforgettable… hope to see you next year…
