The 179-room hotel features spectacular sea views and a dedicated beach and marina, as well as the timelessness of Cretan hospitality in a contemporary way. Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Hilton offered this via the release:
“Crete is one of Greece’s most popular islands, thanks to its warm climate, rich history and picturesque villages. Royal Senses Resort Crete will make a stunning addition to our rapidly growing Curio Collection of unique hotels, which includes upcoming properties in destinations including Lisbon, London and Reykjavik.”
The island’s unique landscape and rich cultural heritage make it ideal for curious travelers and anyone seeking to experience everything Greece has to offer by visiting one, very diverse, destination. The hotel will be located in the picturesque Rethymno region on the northern part of Crete, which has the best weather and attractions that Crete has to offer, including the Melidoni Cave, the Amari Valley, and countless historic and natural attractions. Eleni Troulis, President of Troulis Royal Collection, had this to say:
“We are delighted that the Royal Senses Resort Crete, Curio Collection by Hilton will be the first in Greece to join this stunning selection of handpicked properties. Having successfully operated its sister property, the Royal Blue Resort, since 2009, we are now excited to be expanding our portfolio and partnering with Hilton.”
She added that the collaboration is ideal because it combines her family’s appreciation of Crete’s multifaceted culture and the hospitality values of her company with Hilton’s strong international customer appeal.
