Strolling through Malia's countryside and you’ll find yourself amongst lush, fertile plantations of tiny Malia bananas. The little baby bananas are sweet & tasty and one of the most nutritious and healthy treats! We're proud of our Chef @stathis.savidis , member of our Phāea Farmers program, whose produce is sourced to our resort's kitchens!⁠

At Almyra, everyday we set the table for you with traditional and contemporary Italian recipes, enchanting stories and travel itineraries in the Mediterranean. Come for a glass of wine from southern Italy, and stay to share a fresh-from-the-garden tomato and basil pizza. Follow that with the daily catch, then linger over an espresso as laughter and music drift around you.⁠

The mountain villages of Crete are repositories of traditional culture. The Cretan people have a well-justified reputation for hospitality and for treating strangers as honoured guests. They pride themselves on their "filoxenia" (hospitality, welcome, shelter), so if you wander into mountain villages you may well be invited into someone’s home for a coffee or even a meal.⁠

Jasmine scents, wandering in narrow streets and through the villages' squares, the sound of a rolling dice on a backgammon board at the "kafenio", voices of children playing around...These moments may feel like distant memories, yet the visitor of Crete can still experience a laid-back way of life, while visiting one of the island's many rural villages.⁠

The only thing better than exploring a new destination is sharing those experiences with friends old and new. There is a place for that, free from pretense and full of heart. A place to commune with nature free from distraction and a space to meet like-minded travelers as hungry for off-the-beaten path new experiences as they are about sharing them.⁠
