About Civitel Group
Civitel Hotels & Resorts represent five properties – two in Athens, two in Crete and one in Erbil, Kurdistan, Republic of Iraq – that offer the very best of Greek hospitality combined with international standards. The name Civitel comes from joining the words Civic and Hotel, reflecting the company's civic values and honoring Greek civilization.
From Crete, birthplace of the Minoans and Europe's first advanced society to Athens, where the greatest Greek philosophers shaped the world as we know it, Civitel has built four vibrant hotels and resorts surrounded by a myriad of experiences. Honoring the past yet living dynamically in the present, Civitel aims to show its guests, business partners and friends the finest of Greece in a world-class environment. The group's four properties are known for their warm hospitality and sophisticated balance between business and leisure.
The history of the Civitel Hotels & Resorts began over 40 years when the first property opened its gates on one of the most splendid beaches outside Heraklion, Crete. These four decades of experience in the industry have enabled Civitel to perfect its hospitality standards and create a unique identity based on the company's drive to promote the best of Greek civilization, extending civility to guests and fostering civic pride.
Today, while all properties offer superb opportunities for tourism and adventure, their conference and business facilities bring the best of both worlds together. Each property is very unique in its offerings, yet all extend a warm welcome, high international standards and the enchanting experiences of their locale.
