Meli, Greek for honey, takes its name from the famous golden bee pendant depicting two bees sucking at a drop of honey, which was found at the nearby ancient Palace of Malia.

Second only to the great Palace of Knossos, the Palace of Malia belonged to Sarpedon, brother of Minos, the King of Crete.

Follow their footsteps along the ancient beach where agricultural products and food supplies, including honey, from the Palace were sent to major cities.

Built like a Minoan palace, Grecotel Meli Palace revels in a dreamy seaside setting overlooking a tiny island.

Escape to this exotic beachfront paradise, surrounded by palm trees, wild figs, hibiscus, cacti and olive trees.

Set 2 kms from Sissi village, the style is refined, the pace casual: lose yourself in the meandering gardens and enjoy the exceptional cuisine.

Cretan hospitality is world renowned, and you will be struck by the genuine warm welcome from the staff.

Discrete service, simple yet refined accommodation, excellent range of allinclusive dining, a fine private beach and spectacular scenery combine to create a memorable holiday.
