For £400 less than usual, get a luxury week in Crete just outside the busy peak season, with à la carte meals and activities. This perk-filled package at an award-winning hotel is £599 per person and includes:
A winner of three gongs at last year's World Travel Awards, including Greece's Leading Resort, the hotel is in the former fishing village of Elounda on Crete's eastern coast. It overlooks the island of Spinalonga, home to a 16th-century castle that protected the port from marauding pirates. Visit the nearby hidden beach of Vlihadia, eat fresh fish in one of Plaka's many tavernas, or take a trip to Vouliagmeni, a sunken lake in the town of Agios Nikolaos, where the Greek goddesses Athena and Artemis are said to have washed their hair.
The resort has a Six Senses Spa overlooking the sea, a 9-hole golf course with a PGA golf academy, a scuba diving centre and a gym. There are seven dining options and five bars -- with this deal, you get daily breakfast and dinner at the poolside Nafsika restaurant and one free 3-course dinner at both the Italian Aglio & Olio and the Yacht Club Restaurant, which serves local seafood and is perched over the sea.
Stay in a Porto Deluxe Room with sea views, eco-friendly bedding and an ergonomic bed, a private balcony and an LCD flat-screen TV.
