Enjoy the luxury of a 5-star hotel, in the tradition of authentic Cretan hospitality, while giving your children a treat? Nana Golden Beach makes it possible! This luxury, all-inclusive, fully renovated family resort is taking its sports offering to the next level with the opening of an impressive sports complex featuring first-class training facilities. Enough to put a smile on the faces of young and old alike.

With its sun-swept mineral landscapes and enhanced by a few clumps of olive trees, the Crete is a diamond in the rough, bathed in the warm waters of the Mediterranean.. Its cultural heritage, its charming white villages and its coves fringed by a cerulean sea need no introduction. It's on the northern flank of this mythical archipelago, in a few kilometers east of Heraklion and just a stone's throw from the sea, that the Nana Golden Beach a took up residence.

With 500 rooms, located in the main building or in bungalows, the resort is configured like a small Greek village, on an incredible estate surrounded by palms and bougainvillea. From the spacious balconies, guests enjoy breathtaking views of the sea or the vast Mediterranean garden. A soft color palette, modern design details and high-quality materials create absolute comfort and a pleasant ambience.

Here, the balance is between relaxation and sport! With a 600 m2 fitness center equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, a 1,000 m2 indoor swimming pool and a cycling center, the complex offers top-level sports and training facilities. And let's not forget the various water sports and group classes, including spinning, tabata, yoga, pilates and dance.

A passion for the little yellow ball
