WELCOME TO AMIRANDES

Styled after the sprawling palaces of the Minoan kings and Venetian nobles who once ruled Crete, Amirandes introduces the easy elegance of true European Luxury. The architecture’s sleek lines set off the celebrated beauty of the southern Mediterranean landscape of silver-flecked olive trees, tropical palms, and flowering shrubs against brilliant blue skies and sparkling teal waters. A world of style and Cretan warmth, where the tranquil lagoon waters meet the sea.

It’s a perfect location, offering easy access to Heraklion’s international airport and the world-famous archaeological site at the Palace of Knossos. The prestigious Crete Golf Club is also nearby.


CONSIDERING YOUR SAFETY AND WELL-BEING AS OUR TOP PRIORITY, SOME SERVICES ARE ADJUSTED FOR THE SEASON 2021, ACCORDING TO THE GOVERNMENT’S GUIDELINES.
