Syntopia Hotel an adults only paradise in Crête
“Syntopia”, from the Greek prefix “syn” and “topos” which means place, serves as a spatial symbolism of the meeting point for those whose journey never ends. The hotel design serves as a bridge to connect nature, culture and people. Human connection is the driving force for us. Big tables and gathering places are chosen to promote sharing ideas and socializing. We feel that life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them, so our aim is that Syntopia will serve as a temporary habitat for our global community of travellers as a social hub. The gypset décor together with the unique handpicked items from around the globe, radiate a “barefoot luxury” vibe.
The area of Rethymnon
Whether you’re into culture, cuisine, nature or art, Rethymnon has it all. The third-largest city of Crete is a fascinating mix of wild beauty, old-world charm, and modern style. And it’s right on Syntopia’s doorstep waiting to be explored.
Start with a visit to the old town, where you can marvel at the medieval and Venetian architecture, pop into a traditional taverna, and wander cobbled alleyways filled with local shops.
Rethymnon’s Venetian harbour, with its Egyptian lighthouse, is also a must-visit. It’s one of the most beautiful places you can see in town, and you can combine the scenery with a coffee at one of the seaside cafes just for the atmosphere.
Pools and beaches
Cool off and relax in our landscaped pools, where you can soak up the sun along with the chilled Syntopia atmosphere. There are plenty of comfy areas to find shade, whether under the palm trees, the tipi or stylish wooden cabanas. Those travelling in April, May and October can still enjoy a dip since the back pool is heated during these months.
The best beach bar around happens to be our neighbour. Roulis offers fabulous views, fantastic food, excellent service, plus a furnished bar to sit in. With a chillax atmosphere, comfy seating areas, sunbeds with umbrellas, and hammocks to kick up for feet, it’s well worth a visit. Serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee, and drinks. Reservations and walk-ins are welcome.
Food and drink
Whether you’re in the mood for a cool cocktail, light snack or flavorful meal, you can find something to treat your taste buds on the menu.
Curl up on a sun lounger with a good book and a cold cocktail. When you work up an appetite, head to our main restaurant for an appetizing array of buffet options. If you’re a big foodie, don’t miss the street food-style eats from our new canteen.
The best part: it’s all you can eat and drink during buffet meals. Facilities are all-inclusive from 07:30–23:00, alcoholic drinks from 10:30–23:00. Vegetarian meals are also available.
Calling all foodies! The canteen is here to treat your taste buds, and it’s sizzling with iconic street food dishes from across the globe. Chow down on flavorful snacks inspired by different countries, cities, and regions of the world. It’s a window into new cultures and cuisines, serving recipes both familiar and new, and all are worth a taste.
