Crete is my favorite island in Greece. I was bummed to see the Blue Palace leave Marriott Bonvoy®. We’ve stayed there several times and loved each visit. This new property will hopefully help to fill the hole left on the island within Marriott’s portfolio.

The JW Marriott Crete Resort & Spa will span 100 acres and include 160 luxury guest rooms, suites, and villas. The renderings look elegant with calming tones and modern designs. All suites and villas will feature a private pool or jacuzzi.

The resort will be located in Chania along Marathi Beach (which is on the opposite coast of the Blue Palace). Design plans for the resort also show multiple tranquil wellness spaces, multiple swimming pools, a fitness center, beach club, spa, and Family by JW experiences.

Jerome Briet, Chief Development Officer, Europe, Middle East & Africa at Marriott International, said:

Greece remains as one of the most attractive destinations for today’s global traveller, and the signing of JW Marriott Crete Resort & Spa reflects the continued demand we are seeing for luxury accommodation across the country. We look forward to working with Vasilakis SA and SWOT Hospitality to introduce the brand’s legacy of extraordinary hospitality, thoughtful design, and enriching well-being experiences to the island destination of Crete.”

The property will be close to Chania International Airport Ioannis Daskalogiannis (CHQ), and a two-hour drive from Heraklion International Airport (HER).

Anthony’s Take: I’m excited for this property. As mentioned, Crete is my favorite island for its food, culture, beaches, and people. I look forward to staying here in the future.

Nice area and Chania gets a fair number of flights during season. With Crete being so reasonably priced overall it’ll be interesting to see how this hotel prices out in both cash and points.
