The Hotel

The Malia Bay Hotel sits on the northern coast of Crete in Potamos, a peaceful eastern suburb of Malia. Guests can step out onto a golden sandy beach right in front of the hotel. The all-inclusive hotel is just a stone’s throw away from the famous Minoan summer palace. Although it caters to families, the hotel is perfect for those looking to relax and unwind due to its serene location. The hotel’s lush gardens and the sparkling deep-blue sea are sure to please even the most discerning guests.


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. The twin bees, a well-known artifact excavated from the palace, 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 178 rooms spread over different floors and buildings, separated into 2 room types, standard and superior, and each type is distinguished by its view and a Junior Suite with Sea View. For more information click here.

Furthermore, a restaurant with interior and exterior parts and 2 bars, the lobby bar and the pool bar. If you want to know more details, please click here
