During the ceremony, the hotel’s manager Nikos Vlasiadis thanked guests and invited the Creta Maris team to continue the tradition of offering guests excellent service and authentic holiday experiences; a tradition that has been running for 42 years.
Founded by Nikos Metaxas in 1975, the family-owned business has since offered visitors to the island the finest services and the most memorable experiences of local culture, cuisine and hospitality.
The Creta Maris Beach Resort, part of the Metaxas Group of Companies, has operated since 1975 with a capacity of 680 rooms, suites and bungalows, six restaurants, seven bars, seven swimming pools, a gym, spa, children’s facilities, conference hall, and a great space for outdoor and indoor activities.
Besides a series of “firsts” including being the first hotel in Greece in 1995 to obtain the ISO 9001 International Quality Certificate, the Creta Maris is also among the few enterprises in the country to accommodate golfers with one of the largest golf courses in Greece.
Meanwhile, the hotel actively supports the local community by providing 92 percent of its positions to locals, and is always seeking new ways to enhance the tourism experience by annually reinvesting a portion of its yearly turnover in upgrades and modernization.
