Imagine imposing stone pillars silhouetted against a sharp blue sky, acres of glass and lazy lagoons meandering through a uniquely-designed, 70,000 square metre beachfront site and you begin to get an idea of the visual impact and stylish architecture of Amirandes Grecotel Exclusive Resort, situated on the eastern coast of Crete.
Designed for relaxation
Featuring such luxuries as private gyms, home cinema and state-of-the-art bathrooms with colour-therapy and aromatherapy jacuzzi bathtubs, the sumptuous guest rooms here at Amirandes are designed to promote well-being and relaxation. Accommodation choices include spacious private villas, family suites and grand beach residences with private pools.
Exciting activity options
You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding how to spend your time in this stunning resort. Why not sunbathe by the Olympic sized salt water pool, swim in the heated indoor pool or simply enjoy on the glorious sandy beach? Perhaps you’d prefer to indulge in a treatment or massage at the Elixir Spa? Parents will find that the children are well catered for with their own pool area, a wide range of sports activities and, of course, water sports for all the family. Try kayaking or jet skis, take a boat safari, and even scuba diving is close by.
Legendary Cretan hospitality
Eating well is definitely on the agenda here at Amirandes. Boasting eight superb restaurants, cuisines range from traditional Cretan dishes at Xasteria, inventive Asian specialities at The Blue Monkey to Italian favourites at The Minotaur Restaurant. Evenings include intimate candlelit al fresco dinners showcasing delicious local seafood, or dancing to live music at the “Labyrinth” Lounge Bar or enjoying one of the regular professional entertainment and dance shows.
Enjoy the warmth of a special Amirandes welcome, the highest levels of service, a setting of unrivalled beauty, and the freedom and choice to create an unforgettable holiday experience.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
