Nestled on the captivating cliffs of the Greek island of Crete, ACRO Suites commands a breathtaking vantage point on the precipice, granting guests awe-inspiring panoramic vistas of the enchanting Aegean Sea that stretches along the picturesque coastline of Agia Pelagia.

Aptly named after the Greek term “Akros/Akron,” signifying ‘on the edge,’ this idyllic retreat epitomizes its stunning cliff-top location.

A Minimalistic Marvel

Founded by the Orfanake family, ACRO Suites embraces a minimalistic design, adorned with a colour palette inspired by earthy tones. This aesthetic seamlessly melds with the pristine natural surroundings, presenting guests with an unobstructed view of the Mediterranean landscape.
