Elafonisi Resort is a 3*** traditional hotel located a stone’s throw from the world-famous beach of Elafonisi, Crete. It is ideally positioned on an advantageous elevated location overlooking the sea, and amidst a superb natural environment made up of a large olive grove and beautiful gardens. Many visitors describe Elafonisi Resort simply as “a paradise on earth”, year after year.
It all started in the 1980s, when the estate initially served as a summer vacation residence for the Kalomirakis family, a family with strong roots in the area. But year after year, more and more visitors to Elafonisi asked for accommodation in the residence, in order to extend their stay, fascinated by the magical Elafonisi beach.
This was amplified by the long and winding road to Chania city, and the absence of adequate bus routes to the area. One thing led to the other, and many of the rooms of the vacation residence started functioning as guestrooms, in order to care for an ever-growing number of visitors. Since then, and for about the last 35 years, the Kalomirakis family has been inseparably linked to the very friendly, traditional hospitality in the area of the famous Elafonisi beach.
