Notos Heights Hotel & Suites
Why We Love This Hotel

- Rooms all have a private terrace & kitchenettes with a microwave & fridge
- The hotel has a hillside position with impressive views of the surrounding mountains & over the sea
For those looking for a quieter Malia experience, the Notos Heights Hotel is far enough away from the hustle and bustle to ensure a peaceful stay, but close enough to visit if you are in the mood. The result is a real mix of guests -- groups of friends, couples and families all stay here.
The hotel is a 5-minute walk from the Old Town and a 15-minute walk to the downtown strip. The main beach is also here, but there's a quieter one a further 15 minutes away on foot. While the property's hillside location may not suit everyone, it does guarantee impressive views over the sea and of the surrounding mountains. Quad bikes and scooters are also readily available for hire.
The apartments come in a range of sizes, with the largest (the 2-bedroom family suites) accommodating up to five people. All have their own private terrace (some with sea views), a mosquito net over the bed, and kitchenette with a microwave and fridge. There is free Wi-Fi throughout, and beach towels are available to borrow.
In the morning, an impressive breakfast buffet is on offer – expect homemade jams, vegetables grown on site, pastries, eggs cooked to order, pancakes, local cheeses, yoghurt and fruit. Dinner is also served until late, and the pool bar serves drinks and snacks throughout the day. The pool itself is open until 8pm (April-October) and there is a separate children's pool and playground for younger guests.
