Anastasia Hotel

The Anastasia Hotel is a rustic, family-run place that pairs traditional charm with a couple of good-sized pools. The hotel is flanked by beautiful scenery and the surrounding gardens add a sense of tranquillity. Inside, all the rooms have an authentic feel and homely decor.

An American-style buffet breakfast is served in the morning, with a full English also up for grabs. At lunch, there’s a set menu of family favourites, while dinner is a selection of Greek favourites. After dark, expect magic shows, international dance performances, laser displays, Greek nights and live rock bands.

Overview of Stalis

Stalis is the relaxed sister of Malia and Hersonissos. All three locations are so closely linked that they almost blend into one, so even though it’s quieter here, you’re never too far away from the action. And when you stay at the Anastasia Hotel, you get three resorts for the price of one.

Stalis has a sandy beach to call its own. You’ll spend your days lounging on the sand, eating in waterfront tavernas and enjoying the great range of water sports. When you want to get more active, Hersonissos is home to theme parks, while Malia is the island’s nightlife capital.

Things to do in Stalis

The nearest beach is only a 15-minute stroll away from the Anastasia Hotel. Sunloungers and parasols are perched on the sand, which is bordered by a small pier and a rocky outcrop. The beach stretches for six kilometres and you’ll see that the sands get more active the closer to Malia you get.

Stalis is backed by olive groves and the Dikti Mountains, so there’s plenty of room to explore. Walks in the surrounding landscape are particularly scenic, but you can also take a horseback ride along the coast. If you fancy a day trip, you can catch a ferry to Santorini.

Stalis is a great location for a holiday to Crete. You can relax on the beach by day and experience Malia’s buzzing nightlife in the evening.


Resort Summary

Tucked along Crete‘s northern coast, Stalis is a peaceful resort flanked by two vibrant sister-towns. Here, you’ll find your days largely filled with dining in waterfront restaurants or lounging around the town’s long beach, but that’s not because there isn’t anything else to do – it’s because you won’t want to leave.

Daytrips from Stalis are as easy as they come. You can hop on a ferry to the stunning volcanic island of Santorini, or take a quick walk to the bordering towns of Hersonissos or Malia, which are so close to one another – it’s almost impossible to tell where one ends and the other begins.

Hersonissos is home to three exciting theme parks while Malia is the nightlife capital of the island. While staying on this patch of Crete, you’ll have all your holiday bases covered.
