Marina Deck:

The Marina deck is perfect for small intimate weddings of up to 30 guests.

The sea stretches out for miles and when the sun hits the waves, it leaves you with an absolute dream of a wedding venue. Our couple that chose this venue decided to experience a real Greek wedding and decorated it alongside the expertise of the staff here in a traditionally rustic Cretan style, which worked wonderfully alongside the crisp modern feel of the resort.

Your wedding reception here leaves you with endless choices. For smaller weddings, choose an intimate dining experience in a variety of restaurants including the Bony Fish Seafood Restaurant or the WOW steak and sushi bar.
