Such an island within an island, this elegant little resort is ideally located on a sandy beach, well away from the bustle of the city and only 5km kilometers from the magnificent harbor of the old town of Chania. Intelligent design, with attention to detail, instinctive hospitality, delicious local cuisine and a very personalized approach, here are some ingredients that make our little "island" a unique getaway. It all began in 1976 when Martha and Sophocles Tsepetis have decided to purchase land by the sea, right on the sandy beach Glaros. Local people come to the beach of Glaros for their summer swimming since the small cove is sheltered from large waves. At the time, the whole area was completely undeveloped, so that the family built a small wooden hut to meet barbecues on weekends for family and friends. Years passed and tourism began to take off slowly but surely (for better or for worse). The beach hut has become a summer home. Given the unique location of the property, the latter idea has gained and the construction of the hotel began in 1987 with one dream in mind: to create a great little hotel. Tsepetis Sophocles was an old man and very proud. The idea of borrowing from the bank made him nervous, so the hotel was built at a snail's pace. Then in 1995 the youngest son of the family, Nikos Tsepetis, graduated in political science and his military service and decided to complete the construction. Ten years later, in 2005 (the year that Sophocles Tsepetis sadly passed away), Nikos decided to change everything. He commissioned the architect famous young, Elisa Manolas, and together they embarked on a journey to turn Ammos in a hotel where people simply love to stay. The result was rewarding: Elisa with his unique talent and Nikos, a design junkie, juxtaposed with classical elements of "Greekness" - clean lines, white + blue micro-scale architecture - with modern elements - not treated concrete surfaces, wood paneling, unprocessed 70 references Scandinavian, bold colors, furniture and objects from famous designers and brands such as Tom Dixon, the Campana brothers, Marimekko, Bisazza, Cappelini, Vitra, Alessi. A local artist, Yannis Zakinthinakis undertook the important task of landscaping the gardens and ceramic Manousos Chalkiadakis Vagelio Lergiou product and single plates that decorate the rooms. You too, come and reparter as a friend as all travelers before.
