Dear guests,

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.

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:

  1. Spacious outdoor areas
  2. All restaurants and bars have big terraces for most of our guests to sit outside in the open air
  3. Rooms spread in bungalows with private entrance without corridors and individual A/C units
  4. The resort has a wide beach and big pool areas where sunbeds and umbrellas are already placed in distance
  5. 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.
