Set across a stretch of Crete’s northern coastline, Abaton Island Resort & Spa’s white-washed residences gently unfurl towards the water’s edge. Just a 25-minute drive from Heraklion Airport, this resort boasts a wealth of dining options, an exquisite spa and butler service.
Its 152 elegant rooms, suites and villas are spacious with sea views, 71 of which have marble-edged private pools. Interiors are light-filled and minimalist with oversized windows to complement Aegean vistas.
Savour Cretan cuisine at Elemes, indulge in fine dining at F-Zin Ivy League, opt for seafood dishes in Bony Fish, or tuck into signature steak and sushi at Wow Steakhouse. With great views and a legendary reputation, Buddha-Bar Beach Abaton does not disappoint.
Excursions to nearby Hersonissos promise a taste of Cretan culture, shopping and nightlife while water-based activities include diving and sailing. Alternatively, the impressive pool and ethereal Elemis spa are ideal for some R&R.

“Abaton Island Resort & Spa is a fantastic new addition to the North Coast of Crete. The location is fantastic for those wishing to have a shorter stay on Crete, as it’s not only a stunning resort hotel but also close to Heraklion and the unmissable Palace of Knossos, and 30 minutes from the airport. This summer they’ve also launched their own Buddha Bar for a more party vibe. The sunset views from the terrace by the bar are some of the best on the island!”
