Dear travelers, partners and friends,
Our Management Team and our Group Quality Department has extensive experience and updated knowledge applying ISO22000 and 14001 protocols over the past years and you can trust us your valuable holidays: Travel with Safety!
The new reality, the spread of the Covid-19, dictates additional precautionary measures for health and safety. For our company Enorme Hotels & Villas, the shielding of health, both of public and that of our clients, employees, partners, as well as of the local community, constitutes our absolute priority. We work methodically with the purpose to provide a safe environment for your holidays, your relaxation, and the relief towards the new situation, along with the maximum possible flexibility in your trip planning.
Currently, in Crete the official Covid-19 cases were scant and we hope that the low figures will remain the same during the following period. We are closely monitoring the developments and implement the instructions of the World Health Organization and the Greek authorities with deep devotion and respect.
We are systematically preparing ourselves for the moment that we will welcome you again within our hotel grounds.
