You will find Coral Rooms in one of
the most beautiful parts of South East Crete, in the area of
Sitia. Here hidden amongst the mountains and hills, is a
valley planted with olives, lemons and oranges. As you drive
down the rugged coastal road you suddenly catch sight of the
broad blue horizon over the Libyan Sea and below you, nestling
at the edge of the waters you will find the village of Kato
Zakros. Thousands of years ago, Minoan kings and
priestesses built a summer palace here. This tiny
village has much to offer the visitor who wants to be close to
Nature and to the sea. You won’t find a hectic nightlife
or a lively club scene, but Kato Zakros is the perfect place
to enjoy a romantic dinner of fresh fish caught in the bay, at
one of the excellent beachfront taverns. Here you will meet
the hospitable local people, swim or snorkel in the clean,
blue waters, walk in the countryside or simply relax in the
Cretan sunshine and enjoy the peaceful views.
Coral Rooms are located almost at the water’s edge and very near to the
Minoan palace. You will spend a relaxing holiday,
enjoying the fresh air from the sea and listening to the sound
of the waves at the end of the day. Stand on the terrace
at Coral Rooms in the first light of dawn and you will see an
unforgettable sight, as the burnished disk of the sun rises
out of the Libyan Sea.
Defined by the view terrace and the same view out of your own
window, to the blue seas of Crete's east coast, Coral rooms
offer a superb base to relax, explore from or just rest in
Kato Zakros. Rooms are maintained to quality standards for
your pleasure. There are just three of these precious rooms
available, each one is for up to two people. Serve yourself a
great holiday and stay for days in one of the few beach front
locations in Kato Zakros.
Just a few yards from Coral Rooms,
the long pebble and sand shore shaded by beachside Tamarisk
trees is quiet and calm, untroubled by strong winds. The
waters are clear and always clean and the sheltered bay is
safe for swimming and for children.
Coral Rooms is run by Nikos, who speak good English. It was begun
over fifty years ago by his uncle Stelios. Many of our
guests have returned year after year and have become firm
friends. If you are looking for a holiday away from the
town and the main tourist centers, where you can be close to
Nature and to Cretan people, this is the place for you.
We are sure that you too, will become a regular visitor!!
All Coral Rooms have a magnificent
sea view and are comfortably furnished with own bathrooms.
