A message from our co-CEOs

As Greeks, we have philoxenia (hospitality – kindness to a guest) in our DNA. It is time to show this kindness to everyone, guests and associates alike. We will do our part in staying positive, caring and flexible, while preparing our procedures, resorts, teams and experiences for the next day, when it is time for Phāea Resorts to share a truer, more timeless Greece that is worth celebrating!

All-new Cretan Malia Park joins Design Hotels™

Athens, 19th of November, 2019 Far removed from the identikit beach hotels that dot Crete’s coastline, Cretan Malia Park is a flora-filled
retreat that augments classic Aegean hospitality with a focus on refined luxury and slow-paced living. Owned by the Sbokos family since it
opened in the 1980s, the 204-room hotel has recently undergone an extensive renovation program led by Greek architect Vana Pernari,
resulting in a unique aesthetic inspired by the colors and textures of the island. Key to the hotel’s identity is its commitment to
sustainability — a crucial philosophy that informs all aspects of the design and operations. Factor in a fresh, Mediterranean kitchen
inspired by Crete’s culinary traditions, an organic wellness program that allows guests to commune with the spectacular surroundings &
exquisitely landscaped botanical gardens leading to the sparkling Aegean Sea, and you have a whole new spin on carefree Cretan luxury.

Proudly local, fully entrenched in its surroundings and the bearer of a finely crafted Greek identity, Cretan Malia Park presents a hideaway in every sense. Enveloped by an idyllic locale that is rooted in an ancient history, the sprawling property is inextricably linked to the island of Crete.
