The origins of the Crete Hotel creation
The idea of Kakkos Bay Ierapetra Crete resort was born around 1988 when the Kakkos family resided in the current hotel premises. Family has always been a priority for the hotel’s owners, who frequently organized lively gatherings and celebrations in the area. For many years, and before the idea of the hotel came to fruition, brothers, sisters, and cousins of the Kakkos family would all travel to the bay to spend their summer holidays under the sun. The Kakkos family, being a well-known merchant family of the area, saw the bay’s potential right from the start. The small yet exclusive sandy beach, the lush greenery, and the tranquil ambiance would be an ideal setting for a summer full of nature, entertainment, and of course, positive vibes. The family started organizing local fairs with large feasts, which attracted guests from Ierapetra and Heraklion. Such celebrations would soon become a custom that locals from the surrounding areas loved.
