Royal Heights Resort details
Fun and funky are two of the words that spring to mind when describing the five star Royal Heights Resort in Malia on Crete. A rocky hillside on a Greek island might be the last place you’d expect to find a super-cool sophisticated retreat, but if you want urban chic, private pools and haute cuisine on your seaside holiday, this is the place for you. The hotel consists of luxurious villas and suites, with designer interiors and a cool contemporary vibe throughout. All the units have air conditioning, high speed internet access, tea and coffee facilities, satellite TV, kitchens, and either a balcony or terrace, while the villas also have private pools.
The Royal Heights also boast a vast outdoor pool as well as an indoor pool and spa with sauna, steam room, gym and superb treatments (local charge). There is a fantastic a la carte restaurant that serves local and international dishes made from fresh local produce, and a couple of bars. The nearest beach is at Malia, a two-minute drive away, where you’ll also find a buzzing night time scene.
