The Cretan Earth Yoga & Meditation Retreat

We welcome you to Cretan Malia Park on the island of Crete – a harmonious place, where energy is so pure, and time seems to stand still.

Crete is considered one of the most healing places in the world, and no resort takes more advantage of a stunning natural setting than Cretan Malia Park. The design & architecture are breathtaking, seeming to grow out of the ground from  the hotel’s surrounding nature of swaying palming trees, Malia’s bananas, fig trees and olive groves. The spacious, eco-sensitive rooms have wonderful sea or garden views, and all the modern comforts for a carefree vacation.
