Hotel Discription






Kolimbari, a small, quiet fishing village at the foot of the Rodopou peninsula on the island of Crete, is a great place to get away and relax if you’re after for a nice, quiet destination that has been relatively untouched by an overabundance of tourism.

The hotel is located on the beautiful beach of Kolimbari (3.000 km long beach with sand & pebbles); only 3 minutes walk from the picturesque village of Kolimbari and only 250 m from the Harbour.

Kolimbari, as a little quaint fishing village, is not renowned for its nightlife, but if you enjoy calm evenings with long and lazy drinks and dinners, then it might be just what you need.

Kolimbari is about 23 km west of Chania on the way to Kissamos and has frequent bus connections for easy access.

Avra Imperial is 35 km from Chania International Airport.
