The first Sensatori property is well-versed in the art of indulgence. Everything from meals to spa treatments are served with a touch of classic, Greek style.
As the first Sensatori resort, this place paved the way for all the others. The luxurious rooms here range from doubles to family rooms and suites, and most are available with sea views, private pools or swim-up entrances.
Where Sensatori Resort Crete really excels is in the entertainment. It’s the best you’ll find at any TUI hotel, spanning adults-only comedy nights, shows with West End sparkle, and laid-back live music.
There are seven stylish restaurants showcasing the A to Z of dishes, from stone-grilled steak to Thai delicacies. For children, new wave play comes courtesy of the Crazy Kitchen, Silly Science Lab and water-soaking Sprayground. Read more ››

3rd visit to a Sensatori resort, compares well with other 2 although similar they all have there own unique points. This resort is smaller than the other 2 we have visited but less isolated, the area around may not be the best but at least there is somewhere to f=go for a stroll. Was surprised at the lack of security around the hotel especially the way from the beach. Food good, varied and plentiful. Usual hassle trying to book the a la carte restaurants but system seems to have o=improved a little from last year, more work required in my opinion.More

Great Sensatori time!
Found this Sensatori resort the best for booking 4 free restaurants via an app but book at 10 am sharp. Enjoyed tex mex, and Japanese. Adults only section had own breakfast area in Greek restaurant which was great. Sun beds need early reserving we got choice of last few at 8.30am. Guru bar great for a drink, we enjoyed sparkling wine and Champague cocktails, beer a bit gassy only one choice again! The town of Analpisi own the beach in front of resort take care along front especially at night the pavements a bit tricky and sand blown some bars and tavernas to try if you want a change of scene. Had great German wheat beer in Alinea bar left out of beach exit of resort on corner of second left. Visit the charming little church along the front for a selfie! Watch out for flies that bite they are not mozzies but annoying. Heraklion town worth a visit for a bit of retail therapy and souvenirs with easy access via modern air con public coach style bus about 5 euros for 2 people. 15 mins walk from resort front door turn left past supermarket up to old highway, buses every 30 mins, speak to reception for details. Let down on our Sensatori experience on last day over great hotel check in of luggage and then being sent to queue at airport with baggage! - poor communication by Rep but managed to sort out! Heraklion airport not good no air con in waiting area - Tomson would do well to give free access to VIP lounge for Sensatori guests.More
A very relaxing place to stay, very friendly and helpful staff. Quiet location, however for a beautiful beach holiday, it was ideal for my needs. Lovely to have met Emily, yoga teacher, during my early morning read time on the beach. RichardMore
Fantastic holiday - would revisit!
One of my favourite holidays so far, amazing food, cocktails, evening entertainment and views. The greek restaurant was fantastic. The only downsides were lack of sunbeds in the main pool area, and charges to use local beach More
Very Nice Holiday
Great place with lovely staff and good restaurants. My only negative is the pools which are all 'salty' water which I didn't like. That apart it was a great resort and my family really enjoyed all of the activities (son 16 daughter 13).More
