Crete: the land of Daidalos and Ikaros, the birthplace of Zeus, the cradle of the Minoan civilization, the home of El Greco, Vitsentzos Kornaros and Nikos Kazantzakis.
Crete: the southernmost part of Europe, a rich and beautiful island washed by the Aegean waves from side to side, with stunning & diversified landscape with steep slopes, sandy beaches, olive groves and vineyards, mountains, gorges & gleaming plateaus scented with wild fennel, diktamo and fresh basil.
Crete: the land of full bodied wine & pungent raki, the land of endless feasts and warlike dances, the island that never sleeps!
Crete: a land with its own tradition and its own character, with black baggy breeches and fringed kerchiefs, with Cretan people relatively unscathed, retaining their culture but above all their innate sense of traditional hospitality.
In a few words, although statistically small, Crete is huge in its diversity!
The 5* Sensimar Royal Blue Resort & Spa lies on the northern coast of the island next to the small traditional village of Panormo, only 22 km away from the picturesque & historical town of Rethymnon and 55km from the island capital city, Heraklion.
