Let me present one of the best all-in experiences I have ever had. Stella Island Luxury Resort is a brand new 5 star adults only resort. From the moment we arrived, we felt at home. I immediately felt the laid back and relaxing atmosphere. Let me take you to paradise!
First of all, location. Stella Island Luxury Resort is only a 15 minute drive from Heraklion Airport. The hotel is located near Hersonissos.
The semi-open lobby area gives a great first impression of the hotel. We were escorted to one of the comfy couches where the check-in was arranged. Everything about the resort was explained in a very professional way. I only saw smiling guests all over the place which gave me good vibes. From the lobby area you immediately have a great overview of the resort.
We stayed in a over water bungalow which was a treat! It actually felt like we were on the Maldives. Those rooms are separate small houses with their own sun deck. We couldn’t have asked for a better room. The room has been beautifully decorated with high quaility materials. The wooden touches give that extra ‘island feeling’. As mentioned before, we had our sun deck with direct access to the pool… very convenient! No need to look for sun loungers around the pool.
The open bathroom had double sinks, a separate toilet and a great walk-in (rain)shower.
There are several packages when you book a dream holiday at Stella Island Luxury Resort: breakfast, half board and all-inclusive. I definitely recommend the All-Inclusive option as all drinks and meals are included. It really is a good value. I have stayed at several All-In resorts and Stella Island Luxury Resort is definitely one of the best! The overall quality of food and beverages are outstanding!
The pools all over the resort are stunning and maintained very well as well as all grounds of the hotel. It does look like paradise with all the palmtrees and water features.
Now let’s talk about food!
Oceania was one of our favorite restaurant. Fish is their main ingredient and has been prepared in an excellent way. Even the look of the dishes is impressive.
But even at lunch, Stella Island Luxury Resort has several options. I am in love with their steak sandwich. A must try when you are there! The other night, we went to Umami again for a delicious steak. I can not say enough good things about the food. Quality at its highest level.
My favorite bar at Stella Island Luxury Resort is Umbra! This is the place to be for a cocktail in style!
Breakfast is served at the buffet restaurant, Kimata. Breakfast at Stella Island Luxury Resort is something to look forward to. There’s something for anyone!
No dream holiday without a spa treatment. The staff was very professional and did a great job. Also, the spa area has been beautifully decorated and feature one of the nicest indoor pools I have ever seen!
At night, there’s an entertainment program. Weather it is live music or a dj, there’s always something to do.
What a wonderful resort for a dream holiday! Stella Island Luxury Resort stole my heart and I can not wait to return!
