Singles Holidays Crete, Greece

The largest of the Greek Islands, Crete is famed for the diversity of its landscapes. From rugged mountain ranges to white, sandy beaches; Crete is brimming with beauty and variety. With a rich history and fascinating culture, the heart of Crete is steeped in Greek mythology. If idyllic beaches, the White Mountains, ancient ruins and excellent museums weren't enough; you'll be delighted by the live music as well as the traditional cuisine. Peppery olive oil, local cheeses, succulent meat dishes and the local punchy liqueurs are all on the menu, making your singles holiday as delicious as it is captivating.

Our Resort - Kokkini Hani

The resort of Kokkini Hani is just a stone's throw from the capital of Heraklion, making airport transports easy and giving you great access to the city while still enjoying the tranquillity of the countryside.

A Hani is a traditional inn where people and their animals could rest on their way to market. The area has changed since it's origins but still retains that traditional feel. The area is nestled on a beautiful coastline, meaning that fresh seafood is always on the menu. With a host of seafront restaurants and tavernas, you can enjoy the breathtaking views as well as the local produce. The beaches in the area are exceptional and the beautiful water is ideal for swimming. This is the perfect spot to enjoy Cretian food, lap up some culture and catch some glorious sunshine.

SUNSET BEACH ***

With a tranquil aqua blue and white colour scheme that reflects the azure Cretan Sea, this seafront hotel is the perfect base for your time in Crete. Sunset Beach Hotel owns its name to its excellent location, offering you, situated directly on the sandy beach, magnificent sunsets in relaxing atmosphere. 

Because of its general location in the middle of the island Sunset Beach hotel gives its guests the opportunity to reach easily to Heraklion, Malia and Rethymnon. Nearby there are many cafes, bars, taverns, restaurants and shops, for anything you could possibly need.

Accommodation 

With rooms offering sea or garden views, you will find yourself surrounded by beauty at the Sunset Beach Hotel. There is a traditional feel to the décor that is very much in keeping with the area. Free WiFi in each room is a welcome addition, as are the cool marble floors and the air conditioning. With rooms that benefit from pretty balconies and sofas you can even host guests should you meet anyone special on your singles holiday.

Facilities 

There is a restaurant as well as a snack bar on site, and you can even enjoy the hotel's own outdoor swimming pool. If you prefer the beach, you are moments away and can walk directly to the seafront from the hotel. The hotel has all you could need including luggage storage and a safety deposit box. Free WiFi extends to all public areas and the air conditioning is a necessity after the glorious Cretian sunshine. You can hire bicycles from the hotel if you fancy exploring the area on wheels, otherwise there are plenty of beautiful walks that you can take from the hotel.

Resort Activities

The beautiful beaches and the constant sunshine are a huge attraction, and with a hotel so close to the beach you can really make the most if it.

The area is ideal for hiking and gentle walks too. You might fancy a stroll along the beach, or you could try taking the road towards Anopolis which offers the most breathtaking vistas of the town and the sea beyond. This well-paved winding road offers a pleasant walk as well as a great photo opportunity.

The monastery of St. John Theologian is in the vicinity. It sits in a luscious tree-lined valley and houses the icon of the saint.

In the centre of Kokkini Hani you'll discover the Niros archaeological site with its 16th century well-preserved Minoan villa. It is believed that it was once the home of a High Priest, and with free admission it is definitely worth a visit.

If the culture of the area has peaked your interest then a trip to Heraklion is in order. You'll find the Palace of Minos, the Minoan palace of Knossos and the renowned Heraklion Archaeological Museum.

If you are interested in the traditions of the area then the local village and the food cooked in the smaller tavernas will delight you. You may also fancy a visit to the nearby village of Archanes, home to some beautiful vineyards and wineries as well as winning as EU award for best restored traditional village.

FAQ

Frequently asked Questions

Who are Solitair?
The specialists in Singles Holidays
Sophisticated, fun & adventurous holidays chosen especially for the single traveller

Who books with Solitair?
Our customers join us from all walks of life. We have found that people choose to travel solo for many reasons, but appreciate the communal ambience created by the Solitair concept. Our guests can be single, separated, divorced, widowed or simply unable to co-ordinate holidays with family and friends. We always endeavour to balance numbers, genders and ages within each group, but naturally, we can never guarantee a particular mix of people.

Read more about just who our customers are, with our survey on Singles Holidays Uncovered!

Why book with Solitair?
We operate our holidays with a real knowledge of the single traveller's wishes and aspirations, with recommendations personally tried and tested by ourselves. Our guests benefit from the knowledge and experience we have accumulated over the past 15 years, enabling us to offer the very best singles holidays. With Solitair you will find great company, total freedom, good food and friendly hosts at all our holiday destinations.

Age - does it matter?
Definitely not... We know from our experience that a cross section of ages offers the best mix for our groups, so you will have the opportunity to meet new friends across a wide range of ages. Our experienced travel advisors will guide you towards your perfect holiday dependent on age and interests.

What is the age range of people travelling on a Solitair holiday?
Solitair arrange specific holidays for singles who want to match their age range and interests. We cater for single travellers from the ages of 29 to 79 with some holiday highlighted for particular age groups as below.


·      29 – 49 years of age
·      30 – 59 years of age
·      50 + up to 89 years of age

What is the average group size on Solitair singles holidays?
The average group size is 12 but the numbers vary depending on time of the year and destination.

What is the ratio of men to women?
We do not manage the proportion of women to men on our solo holidays. The ratio varies, but is usually around three women to each man.

How do I connect with other singles going on holiday?
Once you have booked your holiday, you can register to our site by using your booking reference number to join our on line community of single travellers. Never be bored or stressed in the airport again! Find your new friends before you travel with our email exchange service and online community. Perhaps to meet before you travel at an airport lounge, generally get to know your fellow travellers before to go on holiday or just to chat and share experiences.

Are you a dating agency?
No, we do not design our holiday packages to have any aspect of introduction or dating services. We offer holidays purely for single travellers who want to go it alone but do not want to spend their holiday on their own. Good friends do certainly result from our holidays. Although individuals have met and become a couple as a result of our holidays this is not an intention of Solitair.

First time Traveller?
We understand that going away on your own for the first time can be daunting, which is why becoming part of a Solitair group can help you feel more at ease. In the company of new friends, you can enjoy a different way of holidaying, safe in the knowledge that you are free to enjoy your own company or join others if you wish for exploration, dining, travel and fun.

I have never travelled on my own before ?
Don't worry, more than half of our single customers have never booked on their own before, so you'll be amongst likeminded people with something already in common. 

Will I be left on my own?
Only if you choose to be. Our hosts are at hand to greet you at the airport at your holiday destination and organise your ice breaker get together. On all our singles holidays we arrange meals together, offer advice on excursions and answer any questions. Of course there will be plenty of time and space for you to be alone whenever you choose.

When will I meet my Solitair Representative?
Your Solitair representative will meet you either at your resort or at your destination airport.Your representative will be available during your holiday to ensure everything runs smoothly and add that reassuring personal touch. Our friendly hosts are specially selected from the respective countries, as our experience has shown that their local knowledge and skills will add value to your holiday and also we are committed in supporting local tourism.
