Easy-living meets dazzling seafront location at this mini-resort, only five km from the Venetian harbour of Chania, Crete’s prettiest town. Ammos hotel boasts a unique situation right on a shallow, sandy beach, completely secluded from the main road. Friendly staff (who have all been part of the Ammos family for years) will deliver fresh smoothies and cocktails, summery salads and souvlaki, straight to your sun-bed. Rooms-most of them come with soothing ocean views-are scattered around fragrant gardens of jasmine, pomegranate and local cacti.
A rare blend of family-friendly facilities and unexpected design, Ammos is one of those places that put you instantly at ease. That’s what the best holidays are all about.
