NIKO Seaside Resort – MGallery is part of Accor’s sustainable expansion plans in the region. It is the brand’s first establishment on the island of Crete and comes as Accor looks to double its presence in the country over the next three years.
Located in Agios Nikolaos, the adults-only resort boasts views over Mirabello Bay. It has 141 guestrooms and suites, the majority of which feature a private plunge pool on their balcony. As for its F&B offer, two restaurants named Ariagne and Mira are available on the site to replenish guests with Mediterranean fare. Ariagne also doubles up as a bar and is joined by THEA and Ether Executive Club to fulfil guests’ beverage needs. Two swimming pools complete the resort’s amenities.
Born from the strategic partnership between Accor, Hines’ Greek division, Henderson Park and the Y&T Daskalantonakis Knossian Group, the resort offers a high-end hospitality experience for visitors to Crete.
I am convinced that the hospitality of tomorrow will be sustainable or won’t be. For Greece, embodying sustainability means less mass tourism, more lifestyle, premium and luxury properties, being rooted in actions and committed to Environmental Social Governance (ESG) standards.
Maud Bailly, CEO of Southern Europe at Accor
Our philosophy is based on three pillars. The first is luxury: we want to develop more luxury hotels and premium, lifestyle hotels. Second, we want to be more local and work with people who know the markets better than us. Lastly, we are basing this on franchise contracts with local operators. We have great brands that we wish to develop in this beautiful country, and I think Greece will be an amazing region for us to develop our new all-inclusive platform.
