Traditional hotel for Relaxation and Rejuvenation
On the slopes of a hill with a view over the Mediterranean, in the middle of an olive grove and next to the oldest olive-tree in the world, there is a two hundred year old historical building, which we have converted into the traditional hotel "Elia".
You can search and search for a word or phrase to describe Elia - but you won't find it. You'll have to go there to discover its innate powers of natural serenity. You may want to ponder on your description as you silently sway in one of the hammocks which hang beneath the huge oak trees in the grounds, fed by the underground streams which make the whole of Elia particularly verdant.
A quick glance at the visitors' book tells you that peace is the overriding feeling people take from Elia -that and the memory of an exquisitely-restored farmhouse with its nine enchanting suites This place has offered a peaceful refuge to the members of the Cretan resistance during the stormy history of Crete since 1860.
But today such conflicts are almost impossible to imagine as you gaze our from the raised quests' veranda where you can take breakfast, or swim in the pool which looks out over this fertile land and onwards to the bay of Kolimbari.
Each of the nine suites has its own character and is decorated with antique furniture and objects d'art - all for harmony with a peerlessly placid environment.
Traditional wholesome food is served, using only local produce, and the entire operation is run by the gently people of Elia, who meets quests and explains how to benefit to the full from your stay at this unique heaven.
A walk around Elia is itself an experience. Wander around the ruins of a Venetian house, sit on the stone benches with their panoramic views or simply wandering through the olive groves and orchards which encircle the main building. Upon your return you may have booked one of the many themed holistic treatments offered here, including use of the Turkish bath, an aromatherapy massage or a Jacuzzi with rose petals and jasmine oil.
It consists of the Traditional Hotel ELIA and one villa (VILLA ELANTHI). The Traditional Hotel ELIA has 9 different rooms (three standard rooms, three superior, one deluxe and two deluxe -maisonette) with their own wc, air/condition-refrigerator-mini bar-satellite TV-water kettle, hair-drier.

In addition there is a special area for the spa amenities (sauna, WC, turkish bath, Jacuzzi, and one double bath tube) and a therapy room made of stone, wood and glass, surrounded by trees and flowers and a swimming pool of 80sq.m with also magnificent sea view.
Except from the accommodation we provide optionally or through packages a variety of Spa services (relaxation - rejuvenation) and also specialized amenities for beauty. Responsible for these amenities are specialized therapists and beauticians.
Ìost of the furniture are antiques. The beds - sofas are made from ecological mattresses and hyper-mattresses from coco -tree fibers and natural rubber.
The place is harmonically combined with the environment since no poisons are being used either to the gardens or for the cleaning of the rooms, as well all the products for the breakfast and the meals are biological grown up either on our own vegetable garden and bearing fruit or in special selected farms which are growing their products according to the rules of the biological agriculture

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
