ELOUNDA GULF VILLAS & SUITES
History & Story
Dimitris and Anna Kadianakis (owners of Elounda Gulf Villas) visited the area of Elounda at the end of 90s and were astonished by the original and virgin environment , the magnificent Mirabello Gulf, the authenticity of the locals and the tranquility and peacefulness of the scenery. All these factors contributed in first building a family summer house. As time passed by, they begun to fall in love with the area and decided to convert and expand their summer house into a unique boutique villa hotel. Their dream was to give the opportunity to all guests to experience Cretan hospitality within a luxurious, personalized services and facilities, environment. Dimitris Kadianakis, a civil engineer by profession, succeeded to design and construct the hotel in such a way as not to interfere with the authenticity of the scenery. Anna Kadianakis, on the other hand, with her elegant and enthusiastic interior design flair, decorated all the villas and suites in a unique style and character.
Their dream was consummated in 2002 as Elounda Gulf Villas was operated for the first time as a luxurious Boutique Villa Hotel, one of its kind in the area of Elounda.
Today, Anna and her two daughters , Anthi and Charitini, are fully engaged in the day-to-day management of the hotel, ensuring all guests receive utmost attention and tailor-made service with the purpose to have memorable moments and to increase repeated customers.
