Porto Elounda Golf & Spa Resort
Porto Elounda is set on a pretty hillside in northern Crete. All rooms have sea views and are decorated in a bright and bold design. Parents will love the impressive golf range and award-winning Six Senses Spa. The Kids Ark is a treat for kids with a swimming pool, waterslides, trampoline, playground, ball games court, vegetable garden and an exhaustive choice of activities for them to enjoy. A separate teens’ area and activities programme will keep older kids happy. There’s scuba diving, golf lessons, sailing and wake boarding for starters. At night, kids can enjoy pyjama parties, quiz nights and mini discos. Families with babies are well looked after well at Porto Elounda with a ‘babies travel light’ service, separate crèche with playground, sandpit and shaded pool. Families can pre-order taxis with a car seat, and rooms can be baby-proofed before arrival. Babysitting and a nanny service can also be arranged. In 2019 the resort launched Yoga for Kids and Greek dancing lessons and now children aged between five and 12 can join the Six Senses Kids Wellness Programme, a course to introduce kids to a healthy lifestyle that includes yoga and spa treatments. Ongoing is the Valencia Soccer School, where kids can refine their football skills.
