Iberostar Hotels & Resorts is set to re-open the Iberostar Selection Creta Marine, now upgraded to 5* category, following an extensive renovation which took place over two years.

The renovation has seen a completely new lobby and common area, completely refurbished rooms and an extensive upgrade to wellness facilities, including four swimming pools and huge variety of sports and activities.

The seaside village resort will reopen on May 10th under Iberostar’s Selection brand, employing 150 people in the local area.

The resort, located in Panormo in the north of Crete, boasts exclusive access to three picturesque beach coves on the crystal-clear Aegean Sea.

A mixture of brand new and refurbished airy rooms and sugar cube style bungalows designed by Greek architect Marios Ninos are now available under two themes: Colonial and Palm leaves.

The 361 rooms range from Sea-View Doubles with balcony whirlpools to Waterfront Family Bungalows and Deluxe Swim-up Sea View Suites.

The lobby and common area are brand new while the extensive grounds include newly landscaped gardens, including native species as figs, jasmine and bougainvillea.

The resort is all-inclusive with a total of 9 restaurants and bars, providing guests with variety and natural, fresh and healthy homemade products.

This includes traditional Cretan restaurants including the cozy Vegghera Taverna and Anatoli Ouzo Bar, as well as Thalassa, À la carte Mediterranean Restaurant by the sea, Italian Restaurant, Trattoria Concept, serving hand-made pizzas, and Dias Buffet Restaurant.

A food truck will also offer Greek street food such as gyros and souvlaki.

The refit has seen a “major improvement” in the wellness facilities of the resort, with a brand-new spa for massages and hydrotherapy, indoor pool and three outdoor sea water pools.

The activities available include watersports like windsurfing, paddle surfing, snorkeling, to sports including volleyball, football and tennis and Iberostar’s renowned kids club Star Camp offers a variety of activities for a range of ages.

In line with Iberostar’s commitment to responsible tourism, the resort has given a “second life” to materials in rooms and common areas like furniture by donating them to local communities.

The hotel is also monitoring the carbon footprint and the energy consumption in order to reduce the scope 1 & 2 emissions.

One of Iberostar´s Agenda 2030 objectives is having 25% of green coverage in its hotels by 2030.

In Iberostar Selection Creta Marine, green spaces represent 48% of the hotel´s ground, contributing to the environment and the customers and employees wellbeing and relaxation.
