Set to open in May 2023, Brown Hotels continues to expand its five-star offering with the arrival of Isla Brown Chania, located on the coastline of northern Crete featuring panoramic views that sweep across the Mediterranean Sea. Isla Brown Chania is ideally located just a 15-minute drive from Chania International Airport and 30 minutes from Chania, and is set to invigorate the Cretan hospitality scene with its contemporary design aesthetic, elevated F&B concepts and state-of-the-art facilities.
Isla Brown Chania continues to raise the bar for Brown Hotels’ hospitality offering, as the international hotel group continues to develop its portfolio of luxury resorts. A brand known for its quirky, design-driven boutique urban properties, Brown Hotels’ expanded into beach-side resorts in 2022 with the opening of Isla Brown Corinthia, a 166-room five-star resort on Greece’s Saronic Gulf, swiftly followed by the launch of two additional four-star resorts on Evia island: Brown Beach Eretria and Brown Beach Chalkida.
Isla Brown Chania’s design presents a clean and organic concept, harmoniously reflecting the vast nature that surrounds it. Designed by Greek architectural firm Liakos Associates Architects, the new resort champions the use of natural materials with a refined interior decorated in earthy, neutral tones. The property features 148 spacious rooms and suites, unique restaurant concepts, an outdoor bar and lounge area, three swimming pools and a spa and wellness centre.
Maximising the use of natural materials, the rooms at Isla Brown Chania manifest an organic aesthetic of earthy tones, decorated in cream, taupe and brown shades, with plush green velvet and marble furnishings, natural wood fixtures and upscale gold accents. Following suit, the main areas of the hotel are decorated in warm, earthy tones, with natural wood fixtures and furnishings and deluxe gold detailing. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow for streams of natural light to illuminate the space, whilst connecting the inside with the out, drawing the eye across the Mediterranean Sea.
Isla Brown Chania features two room types and four suite varieties to suit the needs of every traveller. Guests will be able to choose from a “Deluxe Garden” or “Deluxe Sea” room view, or opt for one of the more spacious suites, including a “Junior Family” suite, “Deluxe Garden View” suite with shared pool, “Grand Suite” with private pool, or “Honeymoon Suite” with private splash pool.
Utilising its prime location, Isla Brown Chania will boast an impressive outdoor terrace that meets the water’s edge, with a swimming pool, lounge area, and spacious bar serving drinks and snacks complete with a pizza “taboos.” Gastronomy will be a highlight at Isla Brown Chania, with the resort offering three unique restaurant concepts for an exemplary dining experience. The hotel will present its guests with an a la carte menu and the famous Brown Hotels breakfast buffet, a main restaurant serving contemporary, fresh dishes, in addition to a more traditional style taverna offering Greek culinary classics.
The wellness centre at Isla Brown Chania will invite guests to step into a sanctuary of calm and enjoy a selection of quality spa treatments, whilst making use of its hammam, sauna and on-site gym. In 2024, Isla Brown Chania will add an additional 30 suites with private splash pools as the resort continues to enhance its offering.
