The Rimondi Grand Resort & Spa will open its doors to travellers in June of 2012. This new luxury all-suite hotel will be located just off the north coast of Crete between the Venetian town of Rethymno and Panormo.
‘We can’t wait to open the doors to the public in June of 2012. The property is still under construction and a lot is to be done, but the work is advancing rapidly.’ comments Mr. Panayiotis Yiannatos at Rimondi Grand. ‘We are very excited with this project. We have a lot of experience in Crete with condos and apartment buildings, but this is our first hotel. For the Rimondi Grand Resort & Spa we have surrounded ourselves with an international team of hospitality experts to deliver the best possible product and service for our guests’.
He continues, ‘We are really doing something different from the typical hotel in Crete. Travelling a lot myself, I am always amazed with how small hotel rooms are. We decided to offer space instead. When on holidays you want to be able to enjoy both the time outdoors on the beach, by the pool, but also be comfortable in your own room. All our accommodations are suites and villas and range with sizes from 30 to 120 square meters. A spacious room allows you to really enjoy your vacation. All units also have their own balcony and some even a private pool and sun deck.’
The hotel is located slightly off the coast, catering to the more exploring traveller who is looking for some more privacy and comfort. It offers two outdoor pools, a private beach, spa and health club, cocktail lounge, quality restaurant serving local Cretan cuisine, kids club, and sports facilities.
Patrick Landman of Xotels adds ‘Right now working on bringing the hotel to market through contracting online travel agencies, wholesalers and tour operators. It is a great product which caters well to couples who are looking for a more exclusive hotel and more original experience. It has a more personal character compared to most monster size resorts on the island of Crete. Moreover is very suitable for groups of friend and families. It will be economically very attractive for these segments, and offer plenty of space’.
Mr. Panayiotis Yiannatos finishes, ‘Again as I said before, we can’t wait to open the doors. Construction is advancing rapidly. In February we will start taking on staff to get them well trained in our service standards. Everything is on schedule for the grand opening in June 2012. Hope to welcome you to the resort!’
