2019: Porto Elounda introduce the largest seafront pools on the island of Crete!
The hotel has been famous over the years for having the finest beach area on the island of Crete. Crystal clear waters, smooth sandy shallows, no waves, and an unobstructed beach, free for all to enjoy in its entire breadth. With the pools right next to the beach, and the restaurants and bar there too, this has truly been an ideal summer holiday combination. 

For 2019, the Kokotos family has collaborated with London-based designers WATG to produce a new pool concept that will undoubtedly amaze. The new main pool will be the largest seafront pool on the island of Crete with its 420 square metres of gentle curves winding through the native trees, while including a hydro-massage area, loungers in the shallows, and wide steps for easy access. Finished in silky-smooth pebbledeck (TM), the pool will also be heated up to 27C if needed by a cooler season. A new children's pool of 80 square metres, also heated of course, will be well separated from the main pool and feature the ideal layout of shallow and safe waters. 

All around the new pools and taking advantage of the new location of the kids' pool, WATG has created a variety of levels and niches, both to create much more privacy in day-beds and cabanas, as well as to allow forunobstructed sea views from all corners. Rich vegetation, vibrant night-time lighting, contemporary shading solutions and a much-improved flow around the pools and between the restaurants and bar, will all ensure that the new beach scene will have something great for everyone.
