The Cretan Welcome


A welcome to the island in the kindest fashion with most noble traditions of Cretan hospitality. Be overcome with the immediate sense of arriving at someone’s home; in an abode where you, personally will be looked after.

The weekly ritual takes place at the iconic Arsenali Lounge Bar, a stunning frame for views of Spinalonga.

A local wine producer introduces guests to the new generation of Cretan wines and invites them to uncover decadent pairings with local cheeses. Olive-oil tastings curated by local producers and much more of the native culture unfolds this summer, offering our guests a curated experience of the famed Cretan welcome.
