The Syntopia: An Unforgettable Lifetime Experience #thesyntopialife
Atmosphere, cuisine, hospitality, services, and custom adventures, make The Syntopia an unforgettable lifetime experience. The hotel is one of the very few on Crete Island, offering exclusively adults-only accommodation. Although recently opened, it thrived despite the pandemic because of its zen-like outdoors zones, impeccable rooms, and pristine shared areas.
The swanky adults-only hotel is already famous for its Instagramable nooks and panoramas – enough to be featured in Glamour magazine, Daily Mail’s Mail Online, The Telegraph, and other prime-time international publications as a destination for finding inner balance and curing the blues.
The Syntopia is more than a hotel; it is a way of life. It allows guests to enjoy Crete at their own pace, either simply hanging on by the pool at the hotel or planning an adventure outside the gates. The island offers a cornucopia of activities that inspire awe.
However, if you desire lazy days on sandy beaches gazing at the mesmerizing swaying of the waves, The Syntopia is the ultimate destination. Catch a glimpse of a magic sunset soaking in a jacuzzi on your private balcony overlooking the sea when you book a Superior Room. You will also have a walk-in rainfall shower inspired by soothing spa experiences to cool off after a day at the beach. Or, if you prefer to have your body pampered with a signature Aegeo Spa treatment, see our on-site wellness facility, and ask a therapist for recommendations that suit your needs.
The entire hotel and its grounds are designed with your wellbeing in mind. The decor is an inspired mix of rustic and modern in natural colours that add a plus of tranquillity. Greek pottery, wicker furnishings and decor, wood accents, and exotic plants – especially opuntia paddles and palm trees – create an ambiance conducive to ataraxia, the state of mind you expect when you book an adults-only retreat by the beach.
At The Syntopia, you can spend hours relaxing by the pool, with a refreshing cocktail or mocktail in your hand, enjoying the warmth of the sun in the shade of a palm tree. Cool off with a few laps in the crystal water of the pool, then move on to the next cosy nook to free your mind of the stress and anxieties of the outside world.
Start your evening contemplating the sunset, then watch a movie under the stars in our outdoor cinema screening popular classics in English or foreign with English subtitles. In addition, we often host live music, bringing Cretan, Greek, and international musicians on stage.
We never compromise on quality, especially when it comes to what we serve in our restaurants. You can either sample Cretan mezzedes and specials or satisfy your cravings with hearty street food inspired by international cuisines from around the world. There is no shortage of refreshing libations to pair with your meals, all in an all-inclusive regime throughout the day.
Overall, The Syntopia is a laidback sanctuary for the intrepid traveller who seeks to rest for a while before the next big adventure.
