Asterion Suites & Spa

Platanias • Crete

The five-star Asterion Suites & Spa has the mission to authentically celebrate the island's unique culture and hospitality with a sense of modern sophistication.

Set in an idyllic beachfront location, this bohemian chic hotel draws from the myth of Asterion as much as from Crete's natural beauty, welcoming guests into an exclusive kingdom where traditional craftsmanship meets contemporary luxury; where eating ambrosia and drinking nectar reveals our star-made essence.

This chic Cretan hotel consists of 67 fully renovated Luxury Superior Rooms and Suites with sea, pool or garden views. Featuring private terraces or balconies, they combine a minimalist aesthetic with a soulful sensibility inspired by Crete's vernacular architecture and traditional craftsmanship.

Natural materials and earthy colours are harmoniously mixed with sleek contemporary furnishings to create understated, luxurious interiors. An attention to detail, sense of luxury and refinement, along with a range of premium amenities, including private pools or swim-up rooms, constitute the ultimate Cretan experience.

The Spa

The state-of-the-art spa is at the epicentre of Asterion's wellness concept, offering guests a range of relaxing, energizing, and rejuvenating body and face treatments as well as massage therapies using traditional Cretan ingredients such as olive oil, aromatic herbs and aloe vera. It also features a seaside gazebo for bespoke treatments by the beach
