Give in to a relaxing holiday in Crete at Abaton Island Resort and Spa, awash with sleek water fountains, glass panels framing the sparkling sea outside, and ever-attractive design features such as mesmerising lighting in the lobby area. There’s an irresistible infinity pool complete with day beds to sink into, a designated children’s pool for those travelling with little ones, and an indoor pool found in the Elemis spa, which itself is a pampering haven complete with sauna, steam room, gym and treatment rooms. For those who want to explore the area, Abaton Island is a stone’s throw from the beach, also dotted with sun loungers, and is a few minutes’ walk from the shops, restaurants and nightlife of Hersonissos – so you can choose between laidback beach visits and lively evenings out and about. That said, the sophisticated and serene atmosphere of Abaton Island Resort and Spa will make it that much harder to tear yourself away!

The eating experience and clutch of tempting restaurant spaces at Abaton Island Resort & Spa are as polished, refined and versatile as you would expect from such a five-star hotel. Delightfully, there is plenty of al fresco dining on offer here, with elegantly furnished decking aplenty, all looking out over the Mediterranean, of course. You’ll find a fresh seafood restaurant, sushi and steak plus a swanky London-style lounge bar in the lobby, for cocktails, fine wines and occasional live music. Whether dining on the deck or tucked away in a secluded corner, regional produce is at the heart of everything, as well as cutting-edge cooking techniques and no shortage of lip-smacking flavours in each of the four on-site restaurants.
