5 Activities for Wellness and Wellbeing in Crete

Planning your next getaway to relax and recharge? Grecotel Hotels & Resorts in Crete offer many different wellness and wellbeing activities that’ll leave you feeling totally refreshed! See five of them here.


1. Live the life of a traditional Greek farmer at Agreco Farm

This Cretan farming experience combines local traditions, organic food and heartwarming hospitality in a stunning natural setting. The “Be a Farmer For a Day” programme immerses you in the farm’s traditional agricultural processes. Make farmhouse bread. See how wine is made in a vintage wine press. Pick your own ingredients, and end the day enjoying the fruits of your labour with a homecooked meal.

Agreco Farms is open daily: 11:00–23:00 | Wed & Sun: 11:00–16:00

“Be a Farmer for a Day” takes place every Wednesday.

Open guided tours with dinner and Cretan dances are held Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 18:00. On Sundays, you can take part in seasonal farming activities.

2. Find your love for gastronomy and art at Minotaur, Amirandes

In honour of ancient ceramic art and the way it inspired the masters of the 20th century, Minotaur is as much a gallery as it is a restaurant. From the ceramics to the food on your plate, and even the plate itself, everything is a work of art. See an amazing collection of genuine Picasso ceramics while enjoying quality Italian dishes, all in the ambience of the star-lit lagoon.

Rates for a Superior Guest Room Garden View for two adults start from £193.

3. Float away on a cloud of zen at the Caramel Wellness Centre

Imagine yourself lying on a massage bed, pampered from head to toe with a gentle body scrub, a rosewater sponge bath and a massage with perfectly warmed essential oils—this is just one of the treatments you can have at Carmel Wellness Spa.

Whether it's a blissful body and soul elixir, an aromatherapy massage or a special treatment for two, Caramel's range of therapies can't be found anywhere else in the world. For the serious spa-goers, the wellness centre offers 2-6 day programmes, a year’s worth of treatments packed into a few days. Special therapies such as the Lap of Luxury Sea Scrub are sensorial experiences that wrap your whole body into softness and silkiness.

Book your room online and save up to 20% on select treatments.

4. Reach the sky at Zeus & Amalthia Sky Bar, Creta Palace

For wining and dining with a view, head up to the Zeus & Amalthia Sky Bar & Restaurant on the rooftop of Creta Palace. Sip on a cold cocktail while taking in the sparkling views of the Cretan Sea. The Zeus & Amalthia Sky Bar Restaurant is open 19:30–01:00 daily.

5. Live the luxury life at LUX ME White Palace

At White Palace, luxury simply becomes part of your life with the LUX ME concept. 24h WhatsApp concierge, world-class restaurants, a sand and pebble coast, 17 pools and lagoons, plus a full entertainment programme are part of your all-inclusive stay.

Need a great way to start the day? Tuck into an all-organic, healthy spread with detoxifying natural juices and heavenly bites that are all super healthy. Want to cleanse your chakras and free your spirit? Try sunrise and sunset aerial yoga while swinging gently in the breeze. Aerial yoga blends fitness, traditional yoga poses, pilates and dance choreography with the use of a hammock to keep you suspended. You could take wellness walks with a personal trainer who will teach you as much about the local customs as breathing techniques.
