If you’re on a health kick this year but afraid of falling off the wagon on holiday, why not book the ultimate wellness escape to the five-star Nana Princess in Crete, which reopens its doors for its second year on 15th April. Stay in an Executive Fitness Suite and take advantage of your own private gym, chromotherapy, outdoor salt water heated pool, and stunning sea views. Upgrade to an Ambassador Wellbeing Suite and enjoy the same facilities, plus your own SoulSteam or SoulSauna room. These unique concept suites are the ideal accommodation option for healthy-minded guests wanting to maintain their fitness regime on holiday, or get back in to shape, without compromising on luxury or privacy.
There are three Executive Fitness Suites which sleep up to three guests with a King Size bed and sofa bed. Break in to a sweat in your private gym, either on your own or guided by one of the hotel’s personal trainers. Challenge yourself using advanced gym equipment such as TRX Suspension Trainers; Matrix Multi Adjustable Bench; Free Weights; a Medicine Ball; a Nohrd Slimbeam and a Treadmill. During your workout, in-room chromotherapy works to adjust body vibrations to balance energy, and restore physical, spiritual, emotional and mental harmony. Reward yourself afterwards with a dip in your private heated, salt water pool, taking in the calming sea views with a light refreshment in hand.
For the ultimate R&R holiday, book in to one of Nana Princess’ two luxurious Ambassador Wellbeing Suites, which sleep up to four guests each, and include a King size bed and two sofa beds. After an energetic workout or a private yoga class on your veranda, soothe tired, aching muscles with an invigorating SoulSauna or rejuvenating SoulSauna in-room experience.
When you’re ready to step out of your private wellness suite, guests can stay active with a host of outdoor activities available at Nana Princess and in the surrounding area. Expert coaches are on hand to help you improve your tennis technique at the neighbouring Nana Beach Hotel, while a game of beach volley is the perfect way to enjoy the sun and sand.
For water lovers, scuba diving lessons are a great way to explore the underwater paradise of the Cretan Sea. Meanwhile, hikers and cyclists can enjoy tailor-made walks and cycling tours suitable for all levels, and set amongst beautiful landscape. Alternatively, improve your handicap on an 18-hole golf course, located only ten minutes’ drive from the hotel.
When you’ve had enough of working out, head over to Nana Princess’ impressive Royal Wellness Club and treat yourself to some much-deserved holiday pampering. Choose from a range of targeted therapies and treatments, and enjoy making the most of the Club’s extensive wet area, the first of its kind in Greece.
Foodies and non-foodies alike can fuel up on delicious food at any of the hotel’s six F&B outlets, which offer a range of options to suit all tastes and appetites. From fine dining at Carpe Diem, to mouth-watering meat cuts at Meat-In Point, to fresh seafood at Eternal Blue, you won’t go hungry! If it’s light snacks you’re after, order from Sea & Sand and Breeze Pool Bar, while refreshing cocktails and canapés are available at the hotel’s Artemis Lounge Main Bar, a sophisticated venue to relax with a favourite tipple and enjoy soothing live piano music, saxophone or jazz – a great place to watch the sun go down.
Nana Princess rates start from €654/£558* per night B&B in an Executive Fitness Suite, and €822/£701* per night B&B in an Ambassador Wellbeing Suite.
