Radisson Blu Crete
Radisson Blu Crete
Featuring 5 different swimming pools (one of which has waterslides) and access to a large private beach, the Radisson Blu is the perfect place to make a splash and just enjoy a relaxing holiday under the Cretan sun. Located east of Heraklion, near the quiet fishing town of Milatos, this modern and capacious resort welcomes guests of all ages to enjoy its abundance of activities and facilities, as well as to explore the historical and natural sights of the island. In addition to the outdoor pools and the beach, there are also two tennis courts, a fitness centre, table tennis, mini football, aerobics classes and numerous water sports available, as well as bike hire for those wanting to take in the surrounding region by pedal. With your all-inclusive board you can spend your time, in between trying out the various activities, feasting and rehydrating in one of the 4 restaurants (operation depends on seasonality) and 4 bars located conveniently across the resort. All of the restaurants are supervised by the renowned Michelin Chef Yves Mattagne and the gastronomic delights that are served here range from international buffet-style dishes to Mediterranean barbeque and delicious local treats. At the end of the day, you can relax with a drink in hand in one of the bars, or watch the spectacular Aegean sunset from the privacy of your own balcony.
The largest of the Greek islands, Crete has maintained a strong sense of self-awareness and cultural roots for almost 5,000 years. Various empires have made their impressions on the island over the years and today the place is a vibrant blend consisting of equal measures of history, culture, great food, lots of sun and heaps of opportunities for complete relaxation.
Once the centre of Minoan culture, the island of Crete is today a haven for those with an interest in archaeology and classical history, as the landscape is bursting with remnants from past eras. On Crete, you can visit the Minoan palaces of Phaistos and Knossos, the ancient Roman city of Gortys, the Venetian castle at Rethymno and lots of other fantastic ruins that each contains their own links to a mythological past. Explore the even older caves of Diktaion and Psychro, as well as the famous Gorge of Samaria, and then travel back to the present day, by returning to the main city of Heraklion. Go for a taste of local art at the Museum of Visual Arts in Heraklion – here you might even catch a performance of the local poetic and musical gem that is known as the mantinada. After a day of exploring, you can take a dip in the water or test your skills at various water sports that are available at most beaches and resorts along the Cretan coastline.
