Avra Imperial Hotel: A milestone in modern luxury accommodation in Chania

Built-in 2011, just 23km west of Chania city on the picturesque Kolymvari bay, providing a world of choice for accommodation, relaxation, fine dining and entertainment, Avra Imperial Hotel was built on the vision of becoming a milestone in modern luxury accommodation in the wider Chania region. Blending traditional Greek hospitality elements with imposing architectural structures, innovation and world-class services, Avra Imperial was built with its own distinctive character, smartly complemented with discrete ancient historical features. The creative and innovative architectural design of Avra Imperial Hotel is inspired by the structural features of the Minoan palaces. The striking feature of the monumental palaces is their overall size, covering several thousand square meters with large public spaces. Equally impressive are their height and large collonaded areas. If one looks carefully, the subtle references to the ‘Minoan’ style in the hotel’s architectural features are quite noticeable. What’s even more, the modest presence of the ancient-inspired style in the design of the hotel, is amicably complemented by engraved symbols in all indoor and outdoor areas, the letters of the Linear B Script, which was the written language of the Minoans and Mycenaeans and the earliest syllabic script in Europe. In this -extraordinary- way, the unique architectural design of Avra Imperial offers all Avra Imperial guests the unique opportunity to experience the exquisite architecture of Minoan Crete during their daily activities in an indirect and unobtrusive way.
