Crete travel diary: Staying at the Sensimar Kalliston Resort

I’m currently in Crete and thought it would be nice to blog daily about my stay here. In collaboration with TUI Nederland and Visit Greece I’m in Chania to uncover traveltips. My tips will appear on the TUI website and on

Chania is situated in the west of Crete. But, more about Chania in another blog. Today I would like to share a few snapshots of the resort I’m staying in. I’m not in a design or boutique hotel like you are used of me, but in the 5* Sensimar Kalliston Resort & Spa.

The Sensimar Kalliston Resort has its own beach strip, 3 outdoor swimmingpools, 1 indoor, a spa, a gym, and 3 restaurants. It’s an adults only hotel, so no kids under 16 allowed. I love my seaside room which has its own patio and a shared swim-up pool with designated per room loungers. On arrival I was treated to Cretian delicacies: bougatsa (sweet pastries) and raki (wine) that you are supposed to combine for the ultimate Crecian experience.

Around the 3 pools there are plenty of loungers, but you know me, I love my day beds!

I’m always on the hunt for design, and succeeded to find it on the rooftop lounge area. Design with a view… What’s not to like?

The breakfast buffet is extensive and if you’re early you can still choose the best spot to bask in the orange glow of the sunrise while indulging in pancakes, cheeses, and Greek pastries. They have an egg station, British and continental breakfast as well. The best way to begin the day! Tomorrow another update from Chania, so stay tuned. Or follow me on instagram and instastory!
