The Hotel Kalypso is a small family run hotel, built in traditional Cretan style in a tastefully landscaped garden, with its own swimming pool and excellent restaurant, within less than two minutes’ walk of one of the best beaches in Crete.
The Hotel is just off the coastal road between Malia and Stalis in north eastern Crete, with plenty of alternative places to eat close at hand and within easy access of all other facilities and amenities that you could possibly want. Also, Kalypso tavern which has opened since 1977, uses only fresh, seasonal ingredients from nearby producers providing superior quality dishes.
The Hotel Kalypso was renovated recently but still keeps its traditional elegance and blends with the environment around, thanks to the materials, wood & rock and is ecological friendly. Continuing it's ecological thinking, the hotel facilities use solar power to warm the water and the garden is being irrigate by the old well found at the premises.
All of the rooms are attractive and thoughtfully furnished and overlooks the beautiful garden of trees, plants and herbs over the fountain or the blue water of the pool. The rooms purposefully don’t have televisions, to maintain a peaceful, nature sound that gives you relaxed, undisturbed vacations and allow you to sleep with windows open or come up with alternatives way to entertain yourselves.
If your idea of an ideal holiday is to be able to sleep as long as you want, to lounge by a pool or lay on a white sandy beach and swim in a crystal clear sea without being pressured by schedule times, then the Hotel Kalypso can make that happen!
Most rooms have two single beds and some of them a double bed, but on request. Kalypso also, offers two apartments who have two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two single beds, a wc and a bathroom upstairs.
The Kalypso tavern serves primarily fish, but now the menu includes meat and vegetarian dishes as well so as to be able to cater for all of the tastes and preferences of Kalypsos' guests. Hotel guests pay specially discounted prices at the restaurant.
