Combining the privacy of villa accommodation with the charm and facilities of a boutique 5-star hotel, Paradise Island Villas takes the concept of discreet luxury and personal service to another level. This family-owned and run luxury villa hotel sits on the historic island of Crete within lush, landscaped grounds, in an air of purity and tranquillity.
The complex features just 12 stylish luxury villas that have been individually designed to create elegant settings for guests to enjoy. Each villa is a sanctuary of relaxation and serenity with classic Mediterranean architecture, chic ethnic furnishings and luxurious private facilities, including impeccably maintained grounds, heated pools and Jacuzzis.
Each of the villas follows the hotel’s Paradise Concept which emphasises personal touches, warmth and comfort. The villas remain true to Cretan tradition yet are individually designed to generate a unique personality, with every selected accessory carrying a story that breathes life into the properties. The result is 12 bespoke traditional villas that carry every modern convenience that one could wish for.
The villas are designed to accommodate a range of group sizes. The one-bedroom Senior Villas with their marble bathrooms, open plan living and kitchen areas, and working fireplaces, are idyllic for couples looking for a romantic break. Meanwhile, the two-bedroom Superior Villas can comfortably accommodate up to six guests across their two storeys adorned with fine textiles and chic furnishings, with full kitchen facilities, two bathrooms and a home cinema.
Paradise Island Villas offers a holistic lifestyle service to guests named, Supreme Paradise Guest Services, allowing them to experience a blissful state of total relaxation. Aimed at covering every possible need or wish that a guest could have during their stay, the service covers: babysitting, private driver services, organised excursions, private airport transfers, laundry service and the assistance of a concierge amongst other useful amenities.
Outside of their own private villas, guests also have access to a wide range of luxurious hotel facilities including two fresh-water pools, a fitness room, tennis court, children’s playground and high-speed internet access throughout the hotel.
With in-villa spa services, guests can be cosseted by a wide range of revitalizing treatments, using traditional home-made recipes of fragrant local herbs and oils. Treatments can be taken within the grandeur of the villa or out in the private garden.
Alongside the fully self-contained villas is a handpicked collection of communal dining facilities that bring the sumptuous flavours of Greek and Mediterranean cuisine for guests to enjoy within the suitably opulent environment.
