First Hilton for Crete

Curio

Hilton has signed an agreement with Troulis Royal Collection to open The Royal Senses Resort Crete, Curio Collection by Hilton in 2021.

The Royal Senses Resort Crete, Curio Collection by Hilton will be one of the island’s few internationally-branded properties when it opens for the summer season in 2021.

Patrick Fitzgibbon, SVP, development for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Hilton said: “Crete is one of Greece’s most popular islands, thanks to its warm climate, rich history and picturesque villages. Royal Senses Resort Crete will make a stunning addition to our rapidly growing Curio Collection of unique hotels, which includes upcoming properties in destinations including Lisbon, London and Reykjavik.”

Eleni Troulis, president, Troulis Royal Collection, said: “We are delighted that the Royal Senses Resort Crete, Curio Collection by Hilton will be the first in Greece to join this stunning selection of handpicked properties. Having successfully operated its sister property, the Royal Blue Resort, since 2009, we are now excited to be expanding our portfolio and partnering with Hilton. It’s the perfect collaboration for us, as it combines the resort’s contemporary appreciation of Crete’s multifaceted culture and our family’s hospitality values with Hilton’s strong international customer appeal.”
