Aria Hotels expands portfolio with the addition of hotel on Crete
Aria Hotels has brought the notable Cressa Ghitonia Village on the island of Crete into its portfolio. Just a few kilometres from Sitia and Aria’s fifth property on Crete, the complex comprises 15 individual suites and rooms, which all formed the ancient village, along with a courtyard, swimming pool, spa centre, restaurant and bar. For anyone seeking an exclusive private venue for their wedding or private celebration then Cressa Ghitonia Village offers all they need with its panoramic views of the nearby mountain scenery and proximity to beautiful beaches.
Finished to the highest standards, the suites and rooms are available in a number of configurations with some ideally suiting families and others perfect for couples in search of a little privacy and seclusion. The accommodation incorporates many original features such as stone arches, wooden ceilings and classical fireplaces. Some of the dwellings were artisan houses whilst others were shops and merchant stores. All combine in a truly magical effect that feels like stepping back in time with all the quality facilities and comforts of a modern boutique hotel.
The property itself, overlooking the Aegean Sea on the eastern side of Creteand in the Lassithi Prefecture, is a feast for the senses and a great spot for exploring more of this historic island with its coastal tavernas, Minoan-era fortifications and settlements, jewel-like beaches, nature trails and breathtaking scenery.
