Enjoy an all-inclusive holiday at a five-star beachfront hotel on the scenic northern coast of Crete, with a spa, sports courts and more – includes all travel

  • Perched on a hillside overlooking the Aegean Sea, the sophisticated soft-pink CHC Athina Palace Resort & Spa is a lovely five-star spot for a sun-drenched break in Crete. Whether you’re drinking in the views from the poolside terrace or splashing around on the shingle beach, you’ll be back to your summer self in no time.

  • After a hard day on the beach, head to the spa for a little pampering. Once you’re utterly relaxed, potter down to the resort’s restaurant and see what’s on the changing menu for the evening. With all your meals and drinks included, it’d be rude not to round off your day with a nightcap overlooking the water. Bliss.

  • If lazing around isn't your style, there’s scuba diving, sailing and snorkelling all on your doorstep, and after an action-packed day, your 28-35-square-metre Standard Double room is the perfect spot to wind down in, with neutal décor and a private balcony or terrace - the perfect spot to sit and have a quiet tipple as the sun sets.
