The Elounda Peninsula is less a hotel than a small village dedicated to leisure, each of its rooms in fact an airy multi-room suite defined by breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea. The most modest of these feature jetted tubs, private sundecks and heated salt-water pools, while the more lavish also provide landscaped gardens, close-up beach access, and, in the case of the marquee Peninsula Palace suite, its own sailboat.

Most of us, quite frankly, will have to make do with the relatively humbler suites — if you’re in the market for the Peninsula Palace, it’s probably your assistant’s assistant who’s reading this right now. But life at the low end of the Elounda Peninsula is still pretty high-end. The restaurant offers ample opportunity for sea-gazing, with wide windows opening over the Aegean, the Jetty Bar is perched at the water’s edge, and the wine cellar doubles as a tasting venue, pouring glasses from the hotel’s massive collection.

A serious draw is the Six Senses spa, which draws on every spa culture from North Africa to the Far East. More active pursuits include tennis, golf, and all manner of water sports, from a dip on the private beach to a fully serviced yacht excursion. And while the atmosphere is relentlessly upscale, it’s kid-friendly as well — childcare is provided, and includes kids-only pools and recreational programs.
