Mr & Mrs Smith have an outstanding selection of boutique hotels & villas for you to enjoy


Domes of Elounda - Rates from (inc tax)£171.95 - (More Information & Booking)

Domes of Elounda hotel in Crete is a high-flying retreat with secluded suites, a glittering spa and shrubbery-studded grounds. There’s also a choice of five restaurants, smooth-edged architecture and the hotel’s own patch of beach. The simple lines are given an exotic touch from the Moorish additions – fretwork screens, silver basins and mirrored furniture.

Serenissima Boutique Hotel - Rates from (inc tax)£99.60 - (More Information & Booking)

Relive Crete’s love-in with the Venetians at Serenissima Boutique Hotel, which is set in a 16th-century Venetian townhouse – all arches, exposed brick and wooden beams. An 18th-century Ottoman hammam is currently being readied for modern guests; additional creature comforts come courtesy of the excellent restaurant and romantic rooms, painted in blush-pink and peach hues, with Chania Old Town views. This hotel is as deeply rooted in its location as the olive and lemon trees planted outside its bedrooms.

Kapsaliana Village Hotel - Rates from (inc tax)£127.69 - (More Information & Booking)

Kapsaliana Village Hotel’s history-steeped settlement, set in the island’s largest olive grove, has an 18th-century olive press and its own museum. The original press and pitharia (clay storage vessels) can still be admired and there’s a homely restaurant and a flower-flanked outdoor pool. Rooms are soothingly simple: stone interiors and arches.

Domes Noruz Chania  - Rates from (inc tax)£98.74 - (More Information & Booking)

Don’t be a square – follow the sun to beachside Domes Noruz Chania, which woos with sea-and-sand views, a buzzing bar and a trio of pools. (Sorry kids, you’re not invited.) Adults, on the other hand, are advised to treat themselves: sip refreshing cocktails, unwind in a blissful blue spa, sample reimagined Med flavours at the restaurant and do jack squat, perhaps from the comfort of a hammock, terrace or big boutique bed. Should horizontal hangtime lose its lustre, Chania’s cultural lures and beaches beckon.

Paradise Island Villas - Rates from (inc tax) £191.02 - (More Information & Booking)
