Beach – Swimming pools

Take just a few steps from the main swimming pool at Grand Bay Beach Resort to the sandy and pebble beach of Kolymbari. This beach has been awarded a Blue Flag and is organized with sun beds and umbrellas (extra charge) and has a lifeguard. Ideal for families as the sand/pebble area is a large and comfortable space for children to play, build castles, dig and enjoy Crete’s summer sun.

The main swimming pool is available for all guest use. Its depth varies from 1.40 to 1.80 meters (varies at different locations). This swimming pool also has a separate children’s swimming pool with a depth of 0.30 cm. The pool bar at the main pool offers refreshments and snacks (open from 10h00 to 19h00).

A second smaller river-style swimming pool is also available for all guests. This is a quieter area, ideal for those who appreciate sunbathing, relaxing and swimming further from the main swimming pool and beach.

Guests staying in a Junior Suite sea front, direct pool access have direct access to the swimming pool.

And finally, the privileged few staying in a ‘Junior Suite, sharing pool’ (only 5 such suites at Grand Bay Beach Resort): the terrace of each of these suites leads directly out to a swimming pool which is to be used only by the guests staying in these suites.


The Fitness Room at Grand Bay Beach Resort is a small indoor facility equipped with basic gym equipment such as a treadmill, exercise bike, weights, stepper and more. This is open all day and is complimentary for guest use.

Relax and let your body be soothed – take a Jacuzzi in the Jacuzzi Room. This is at an extra charge and by arrangement only (reception will assist you).

Some massage services and facial treatments are also available by arrangement with reception. These take place in a kiosk set up on the beach. The kiosk ‘door’ can be left open for you to enjoy the view to and breeze from the sea or closed for complete privacy.

For more specialized treatments, such as massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, hairdresser, tennis and more, please feel free to speak to the reception. Special arrangements can be made for you to receive the treatment of your choice (even a swim in an indoor heated swimming pool) at our nearby sister hotel Cavo Spada Luxury Resort & Spa. Keep in mind – Grand Bay Beach Resort guests receive a special discount for these treatments.
