Chic and Unique
Beautiful suites, each one unique with amazing views of Chania harbour. Manolis and his sons have created a luxury boutique accommodation within a beautiful and tastefully restored Venetian building. The family are experienced hoteliers and also own Vranas Studios and they couldn’t do more to make our stay special.
There are four spacious open plan suites, one per floor, which are more like apartments. We stayed on the first floor which is stunning – chic and unique. The restoration has been tastefully and lovingly undertaken and the old Venetian stone walls blend with the beautiful colours and subtle modern lighting. The ceilings are high and the apartment feels open and airy, the contemporary furniture adds a modern twist to the overall feel. The balcony looks out over the water and was a perfect place to sit, read and have a glass of local wine.
The plunge pool is luxurious and has a sleek glass electric cover for ease of use. It was fantastic to relax in it after a long day of sightseeing or to take a romantic dip in candle light.
The deluxe bed is situated on a slightly raised area and lying in bed the window of the balcony frames the view like a series of paintings. The shower room is hidden under a Venetian arch way. There is an overhead rainfall shower with massage jets that would rival any found in a five star deluxe hotel.
We were invited to view all of the suites as they were newly opened. The second floor suite has a beautiful raised window seat for reading and relaxing and uninterrupted views of the harbour and lighthouse. It has two bathrooms, one with an amazing shower. The third floor, which we used when we first arrived, has two bathrooms, one a double sized rain shower with massage jets. The focal point of the room is a huge picture window with stylish day beds in front of it. The room has a romantic feel and is an artists paradise where my husband sat to sketch the view of the harbour.
The top floor is not quite ready for guests but when it is it will have a jacuzzi and a large private roof terrace.
We stayed for 10 nights and can’t wait to come back but my advice would be to book quickly because Vranas Residenza will be THE destination accommodation in Chania.
