• Rooms
    There are 5 types of two-storey villas and all feature a private pool and garden - perfect for families, couples or friends. Each villa has been decorated individually - no one villa is the same. There are splashes of colours in some, soft tones in another but all embody the feel of country chic whilst remaining true to the architecture of Crete. Italian chandeliers, Greek marble and antiques set the standard throughout the villas where every item has a story and each one has its own personality. Complimentary WiFi is available in all of the villas.

    How to get there?

    Either from the port or airport of Heraklion, you will need to take the national road towards the east part of the island, to Agios Nikolaos. After almost 14km you will reach the junction to the OLD National Road where constructions are in process and you will need to follow the one way road, just before Kato Gouves. Keep straight always eastwards, and after almost 7km you will see a junction signposted for Kasteli, Agios Nikolas and Lassithi Plateau. Keep straight for 10m and take position to turn left exactly at the point where the bus stop and a coffee place called NEXUS are. There is a sign of Anissaras, our location. You are now at the hill of Anissaras. Keep driving towards the sea and at about 400m. turn right (you are still on the hill, you will see all signs of hotels). Drive for some more meters and Paradise Island Villas is at your right hand side. You will see the hotel’s sign and the wooden gate. Please ring the bell. Welcome to our Paradise!
