Pilot Beach Resort is committed to continuously fulfill our guests’ wishes and expectations with a tradition in hospitality spanning for more than three decades. Today, more than ever, we are also committed to ensure the health of our guests and staff as we navigate thru the difficult challenge the coronavirus (COVID-19) presents us with.
The Greek Government announced that international tourism can gradually start from the 15th of June and from the 1st of July the airports on our Island can accept international flights. As the result of the above we gladly announce that we have opened our hotel on the 1st of July for the remaining summer season of 2020.
Taking under consideration that social distancing is the outmost important measure to avoid the spread of the virus we believe that Pilot Beach Resort ideally enables social distancing due to:
- Spacious outdoor areas
- All restaurants and bars have big terraces for most of our guests to sit outside in the open air
- Rooms spread in bungalows with private entrance without corridors and individual A/C units
- The resort has a wide beach and big pool areas where sunbeds and umbrellas are already placed in distance
- Big airy public areas ready to offer outdoor fitness programs and outdoor kid’s activities
The resort spreads in a 150.000sq.m ample natural area in an ideal landscape for delightful holidays. Herewith we reassure you that we will be ready for one more time to offer to our guests the traditional Cretan hospitality in a safe environment.
