This is our story

The Malia Bay Hotel was constructed in the 1980s as a resort, facing Malia bay and adjacent to the Minoan summer palace. A well-known artifact excavated from the palace, the twin bees, inspired the hotel’s logo. The hotel has undergone several expansions and renovations over the years, with the most recent being the winter 2022 renovation. As a result of this, all rooms have had their services refreshed, superior rooms were completely renovated, and many common areas were redesigned and upgraded to provide the best possible service to guests.

The hotel consists of 179 rooms spread in different floors and buildings, separated in 2 room types, standard and superior, and each type is distinguished by its view. For more information click here.
