Saga Holidays has introduced Aldemar Resorts' five-star Knossos Royal in the resort of Anissaras, on the outskirts of Hersonissos in Crete, to its summer 2015 Greece programme.

The 356-room luxury hotel is one of eight four- and five-star hotels that the hotel group offers in Crete, Rhodes and West Peloponnese on the mainland. The Aldemar Knossos Royal is located near Heraklion, a 25-minute transfer from Crete’s Heraklion airport, and is designed like a small village that blends traditional Minoan style with modern facilities surrounded by gardens and walkways to the sea.

The operator's lead-in price for a one-week stay on an all-inclusive basis, including flights from Gatwick, is from £649 per person based on travelling in October.

Guests have a choice of restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and there is a free bar, open from 11:00-23:00 that serves local and branded alcoholic drinks. The hotel hosts a variety of themed evenings and nightly entertainment as well as a lobster night every week. Guests can also take part in Greek language or cookery classes, as well as use the range of facilities which include several swimming pools, tennis courts, mini golf and squash. There is also a water club that offers scuba diving, water skiing and paddle surfing.

For clients in need of pampering, there is a range of soothing spa treatments at the nearby Royal Mare Thalasso & Spa Centre.
