Introduction to Stella Island Luxury Resort and Crete 

Nestled on the enchanting island of Crete, Stella Island Luxury Resort is a sanctuary of luxury and wellness. Crete, the largest of the Greek islands, is a treasure trove of archaeological sites, beautiful landscapes, and pristine beaches, making it a perfect backdrop for a holistic holiday. The island’s climate is predominantly Mediterranean, offering sunny days with a gentle breeze, ideal for both relaxation and exploration. 

 Top 3 Must-Visit Attractions in Crete: 

  1. Knossos Palace: Dive into the ancient Minoan civilization with a visit to this archaeological marvel.
  2. Elafonissi Beach: Known for its pink sand and crystal-clear waters, it’s a paradise for beach lovers.
  3. Samaria Gorge: A breath-taking natural wonder, offering challenging hikes with rewarding views.

 Top 3 Experiential Activities: 

  1. Cretan Cooking Class: Learn to cook traditional Cretan dishes, emphasizing local ingredients and healthy diets. ***** I couldn´t find a cooking class in Crete (except for Malia, wich will be going at the Hotel) I will take this out just in case, or until I travel to Crete and check it there.
  2. Olive Oil Tasting: Discover the rich flavours and health benefits of Crete’s liquid gold.
  3. Pottery Workshop: Experience the art of Cretan pottery, creating your own souvenir to take home.
