The recently opened Minos Beach Art Hotel is exactly what it sounds like: an exquisite Greek Island waterfront-stay with seriously cool art scattered through the hotel.
The design of the hotel is in sync with the rest of Crete: low-key luxury in low lying villas, set among narrow laneways snaking through the humble fishing villages that have been here for centuries.
The designs ensure that your eyes remain glued to the natural landscape that surrounds you, which is, frankly, bloody beautiful. Crete is filled with beaches, gorges, rivers, mountains, rocky cliffs and ancient archaeological sites from civilizations that were here long before St. Kilda’s last premiership (read: ages ago)
And if you do get sick of the views (you won’t) there is also the art: the 50-ish unique art installations throughout the hotel make you feel as though you’re in a gallery as soon as you leave the front door.
