INSULA ALBA is the Latin translation of the words “White Island”, a name that was inspired from the white colour that dominates at this beautiful, adults only, seaside hotel in Crete. The outstanding friendly service and carefully crafted luxury that our guests enjoy ensure a great and relaxing stay in Crete island.
Our guestrooms and junior suites are carefully designed to embody a contemporary minimalistic island aesthetic while the water element embraces the whole formation of the hotel.
My partner and I have just returned from a week here and I couldn’t fault anything. What an amazing resort with lovely spotless rooms (highly recommend the swim up rooms), friendly staff, nice varied food and excellent pool and bar areas. Will definitely be back!
Relaxed (Ibizan-style) hotel
This is a wonderful hotel and resort for complete chilled out relaxation. I’d liken its style to Ibizan beach hotels/bars. It’s white and cream as you can see from the pics and lots of open space. The rooms are good, with big beds and double bathroom sinks. The food too. Plenty of healthy dishes and a bit of indulgence among the familiar international stuff and local Greek and Cretan things. The staff are all open and friendly, with genuine smiles and good chat. Nothing is too much trouble for them.
Just back from a brilliant week at this hotel. We paid for the upgrade & it was worth every penny to have the pool right outside our room with amazing sun loungers. Everything was perfect stunning hotel … lovely staff … very clean … the best facial I’ve ever had in the spa … will definitely visit again
An Amazing Hotel- we are definitely coming back
When we arrived they told us they upgraded us to a room with a direct pool access (Swim-up room). The room itself is modern and fully equipped with everything you need. There is coffee, strong air conditioner, excellent Wi-Fi in all parts of a the hotel.We very enjoyed breakfast and dinner which featured a very large selection. All reception staff and service personnel we encountered in the dining room were very courteous. The hotel itself is modern and amazingly beautiful.
Stayed here for 7 days and had a blast! Lovely spacious and luxurious rooms with two tv’s and a lovely balcony and pool view! The staff were excellent, very attentive and friendly. The place is located in a smaller and quieter village in Crete, right next to the sea, there was never a problem with locating a lounger or a bed for sunbathing at the pool and the food was phenomenal!
An oasis of calm and more
Insula Alba (White Island) certainly lives up to it name, since entering the Resort and Spa four words come to mind; Clean, Calm, Space and Quality.
I would come back here every year
I came here with my partner as our first holiday together and honestly I would return every year hands down! It was an absolutely beautiful hotel, cleaned every day. The hotel staff were so helpful and always happy to speak to you, no matter what time of day. The hotel looks right on the beach and the view is spectacular. We went as a half board package and I couldn’t complain with the food, there was a good variety of choice and it always looked well presented! I recommend this hotel for couples of any age to have a relaxing break!
Excellent Food & Service
Stayed for a week at Insula Alba, our first visit to Crete. The resort is spotless with friendly helpful staff and a very relaxing feel.
Food was excellent. We stayed half board. The range of dishes and quality was outstanding. We stayed in a room with a private pool. Which afforded privacy. The village has a couple of interesting shops. But would recommend a car to explore. Would recommend
Stayed there at the end of September. What a wonderful hotel ! Stunning swimming pools and fantastic staff , especially the barmen at the pool bar. The restaurant staff is also great in addition to the meals which are tasteful . Only negative thing is the rocky beach in front of the hotel. But with such swimming pools , finally this is not a big problem !
Fantastic stay. Couldn’t ask for more
Just returned from a 5 night stay with my boyfriend, at the end of October and it was great. We relaxed as soon as we arrived. The room was lovely and the bed was huge. We had a private pool although it was extremely cold. The staff were friendly and helpful. The general ambience was relaxing and “couply” although there were singles and groups there too. By day we stayed around the main pool where the ambient house music added to the atmosphere.
