Escape to Crete for a Serene Vacation With Your Own Pool
With August being National Wellness Month, we’re focusing on design that centers around self-care, healthy lifestyles, mindfulness, productivity, comfort, mental wellness, reducing stress, etc. From creating a spa-like environment in your own home to travel escapes, healthy workspaces to mood-boosting colors, we will cover the spectrum in hopes of inspiring you to create your own oasis, whether that’s in your home, office, or mind.
Situated on the rocky cliffs of Crete is a tranquil wellness retreat with a five-star rating – ACRO Suites. The luxe Greek resort overlooks the Aegean Sea with a contemporary meets natural design scheme that spans 49 ocean-front suites and villas, each outfitted with their own private saltwater pool. A destination where dreams are made.
The rocky coastline inspires the interiors where you’ll find natural tones, rich textures, and modern amenities around every turn. The exterior is clad in textured stones giving direct nod to the resort’s location.
For guests looking to indulge in some self-care, the hotel offers a hammam-inspired bath house, a plunge pool, Finnish sauna, treatment rooms, a public outdoor pool, and lounge area. There are daily yoga classes, in addition to a tennis court, mini basketball court, fitness room, and a pilates reformer for guest to enjoy.
The modern suites are sleek and contemporary, yet serene with a palette of earth tones and minimalist furnishings. The perfect spot for relaxing after swimming in a private pool.
One suite connects to its own private pool within a rocky cave that overlooks the sea.
