Fodele Hotel: Your Adventure Holiday Citadel

As Fodele Beach & Water Park Resort stands tall on a commanding cliffside close to Heraklion, watching over the Cretan sea, with a chilled-out beach at its feet, three tranquil swimming pools on its back, and a luxurious wellness centre in its warm embrace, you could easily be mistaken into thinking that Fodele just provides you with a holiday of pure relaxation.

Of course, if you want nothing more than to relax, Fodele has you completely covered. But if you also crave an action-packed family holiday, full of adventure, Fodele is your perfect destination this summer.

The Best Hotel Water Park In Crete

Quench your thirst for thrills on the wildest and wettest rides in Crete at Fodele’s pristine water park! Boasting 7 kinds of waterslide and 6 fresh water pools, all exclusively available to you, the guests, it’s no wonder Fodele was named one of the world’s best water park hotels by Trivago.

Have fun with all the family on the colossal body slide and three multi-slides, where parents and children can sit with each other to enjoy the blistering plunge down the rides together. Feel weightless as you drop down the exhilarating compact, free-fall and kamikaze slides. Snake through the trees on a raft in both the pulsating raft slide and the perilous dark tube of the black hole slide – if you dare.

Younger children are also invited! Fodele hosts a delightful children’s area with a shallow pool and sparkling slides designed for those too small to enjoy the more imposing rides. So no-one in the family will miss out on an unforgettable experience at Fodele’s water park.

And don’t worry! The park is supervised by a team of specialist lifeguards who will help you operate the rides correctly, so children will be safe at all times.

A Haven for Sport Lovers

Rather stay dry on your active holiday? Don’t sweat it. The sports facilities at Fodele are truly magnificent, harbouring an impressive range of indoor and outdoor activities.

Get competitive with your whole family in a round of mini golf, on the basketball court, or in a match of doubles tennis on two first-class courts. Take up an exciting new sport on the unique archery court. Or feel the gentle sand on your feet in a casual game of volleyball or beach football on Fodele’s golden slice of the coast.

Stay cool inside with a game of table tennis or with a huge array of arcade games in the enthralling games room. Work out hard at the state-of-the-art gym equipped with brand new cardio and weight machines, where you can also take advantage of personal training, yoga and boxing sessions.

Prefer to revel in watersports at the beach? Race away into the azure expanse on an extreme jet ski! Benefit from some quality family time as you canoe together across the peaceful water. Alternatively, tether yourself to a motorboat and glide gracefully over the glistening waves on water skis, a wakeboard, a flyboard, or (perhaps less gracefully) on a banana boat, bound to have the whole family laughing uncontrollably as you fall off one by one.

Explore Mountain Peaks and Sea Depths

If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, take advantage of the excellent local activity companies, which provide affordable experiences to satisfy your burning need for adventure!

Embark on an accessible guided mountain bike tour with JoyRide-bike to explore Crete’s regal wilderness. Or, rent bikes and take your family on an expedition into the mesmeric mountains through miles of beautiful mountain bike terrain to discover the island’s natural treasures.

But if you’re not a keen cyclist, there are just as many secrets to be found on the Cretan seafloor. Fodele partners with the Stay Wet professional diving center to treat you to diving lessons for the whole family, while meeting the many inhabitants of the Mediterranean, from fish to starfish to octopuses. And, if you’re lucky, you might even encounter seahorses and dolphins too!

Fodele is truly the threshold to exploring every crevice of Crete’s natural wonders. Book now for an action-packed family holiday in Crete!

First Dive Broadcast Aired From Earth’s Least Explored Ecosystem

First underwater live video sent from Alphonse Island in the Seychelles Ocean.

The British-based Nekton Mission research vessel Ocean Zephyr made a broadcasting milestone in the Seychelles ocean of Alphonse Island. Its first live underwater video aired concurrently from two crewed submarines and remotely operated submersibles using innovative optical-transmission technology.

The first multi-camera live signal aired 18–20 March on Sky Atlantic and Sky News in full broadcast quality on SKY News and SKY Atlantic. Through the technology, images were transmitted via the waves using the blue region of the electromagnetic spectrum. The first transmission came from 60 meters (200 feet) below the water’s surface.

Scientists from over 40 organizations are studying this never-before-explored deep sea for seven weeks, mapping the sea floor and dropping sensors to depths reaching up to 2,000 meters in Seychelles’ waters.

The exploration of the Seychelles’ ocean territory will record the effects of global warming and discover the region’s uncharted marine life. The project will train local scientists and provide an educational platform through the live feed classroom.

Seychelles is carrying out groundbreaking environmental work in other areas, championing marine protection in the Commonwealth’s Blue Charter and protecting 30% of its ocean by 2020.

All-inclusive Cretan luxury does exist, and it’s called the Syntopia hotel

The adults-only heaven near Crete opens on 1 May

Get ready for the good life this summer in Crete, Greece.

New, hip and eccentrically charming, the Syntopia by Orion is a dare-to-be-different hotel with a sandy beach at its side. And it’s opening 15th May for its first season ever!

Stay at the Syntopia Hotel

Set minutes east of Rethymnon, the complex of 119 guestrooms welcomes adults only to glamorous island living. Stretch out in a swanky modern space facing the sea, pool or inland.

Free spirits will feel right at home with the refreshing sense of flair. Indoors and out, a fusion of wood, wicker and stone sets the hippie-chic vibe you’ve been waiting for.

Enjoy the Syntopia Experience

Experiences at Syntopia are meant to be as pleasurable as possible. Jump into action-packed events from ethnic music nights to a weekly pool party.

Whether it’s live international music, wine tasting, cheesemaking or cooking lessons, these events can be appreciated alone or in groups.

Take the fun to the beach a short stroll away or drop in for cross training, body pump, team running and other sports. Spa-goers can float their worries away in the hot tub, sauna and zen relaxation zone while yoga, meditation and tai chi offer mellow alternatives.

When you want to chill, make a beeline for the pool sunbeds or catch your fave flick under the stars. Grab a bag of popcorn and a fizzy pop. Then sit back and enjoy the show – the open cinema is part of your all-inclusive entertainment.

Live the Syntopia Life

What’s the best part about the Syntopia? Everything’s included! It’s all you can eat from 07:30–23:00, with alcoholic drinks from 10:30–23:00.

Dine at the main restaurant for a tasty buffet, and if you’re a real foodie, grab a hearty bite from the canteen, a unique project serving street food style chow from around the world. It’s a window into new cultures and cuisines, and all are worth taste.

Fancy a drink? Hurry to the lobby bar for fabulous cocktails. With laid-back moods and plenty of spots to unwind, it’s well worth a visit.

No matter if you’re into style, culture, cuisine or anything in between, you’ll be sure to love the Syntopia life.

Step Away from the Screen: Why Seychelles is the Ideal Digital Detox Retreat

If you’re guilty of constantly checking your phone or device, you may be due for a digital detox.

Just imagine: You wake up to the soothing sound of the ocean. The sun is beaming through your blinds. As you open the curtains, you’re greeted with golden sand and palm trees swaying in the breeze. There’s no need to check your feed. Only a sense of calm is present. Is it a dream? Not in Seychelles! With direct flights and affordable accommodation, this could be you.

Stare at heavenly landscapes rather than your screen

Tired of seeing envy-inducing pics on Instagram? Once believed to be the biblical Garden of Eden, Praslin is full of natural beauty to feast your eyes on instead.

Visit UNESCO World Heritage Site Vallée de Mai and see the legendary coco de mer palms found only in Praslin and Curieuse islands. You might spot one of the world’s rarest birds, the Seychelles Black Parrot, along the way.

Of course, a visit to Praslin isn’t complete without spending time in Anse Lazio, a top contender for the world’s most beautiful beach.

Slide into the sea instead of someone’s DMs

When it comes to fishing, sailing or watersports, this part of the Indian Ocean makes even the most obsessed social media users want to log off. That’s because Seychelles enjoys a ‘perpetual summer’ and warm water all year round.

Short sailing distances and safe moorings make it easy to hop around the inner islands. The virgin waters and ancient atolls of the outer islands are home to incredible snorkelling and diving opportunities, while the sea creatures and coral reefs beat anything that can be seen online.

Watch the birds instead of your followers

As the name suggests, Bird Island is best known for its rich birdlife. Watch sooty tern and brown noddy birds nesting and enjoy a pace as slow as the giant tortoises that inhabit the island.

This slice of paradise is privately-owned, has no cars and roads, and both phones and TVs are nowhere to be found in the chalets – just you in a pure, natural and beautiful environment.

To get there, catch a charter flight from Mahé to Bird Island. It operates daily, and you can arrange to get picked up in a helicopter. For details, visit birdislandseychelles.com/flights.

Hop around islands not profiles

Seychelles’ wide variety of islands is what makes it such a special destination – each one is unique in geography, character and history.

With regular air and sea transport out of Mahé, you can explore the different islands hassle-free. Choose from ferry services, domestic flights and even helicopter transfers that are all available daily.

After seeing the main islands, pop over to the peaceful outer islands such as Desroches and Alphonse. Privately owned, they remain part of the few untouched corners of the world. In Descroches, explore the forest, lighthouse, village and other sights on 15 km of bike trails. The raw beauty will make you forget you ever had a Facebook.

Learn more about the islands: seychelles.travel/en/discover/the-islands

Surf the waves instead of the web

Along with warm water and captivating scenery, you can expect uncrowded beaches in Seychelles. The most famous surfing spot is Grand Anse beach in La Digue. Aside from a beautiful shore, you’ll find great beach breaks.

Mahé is another popular choice offering pristine spots for different types of surfing and consistent waves on the east side of the island. Although you can hang ten throughout the year, the best time for surfing in Seychelles is April to September.

Play in an family paradise, not on ‘pads

Powdery sand to play with and crystal waters to paddle in are just the start of entertainment for the whole family. Zip-lining, horse riding, snorkelling, thriving nature reserves and hands-on workshops mean you never have to reach for the iPad games.

And it gets better: Seychelles is the tropics minus the vaccinations and dangerous animals and plants. A variety of family-friendly accommodation, easy travel and a children-loving culture give family holidays a new meaning.

hether you’re a serial Netflix binger, an office 9–5er or a casual computer and smartphone user, we could all do with some time away from the screens. If you’re ready to tune out, you won’t miss the gadgets in Seychelles.

But before you unplug, plan your getaway at seychelles.travel.

3.    Picnic at Las Amapas

This small beach is located a little south of Puerto Vallarta’s Romantic Zone, away from the crowds of the Old Town. There are no services at Las Amapas, so it’s an all-time favourite beach for couples seeking peace and privacy. Visit the original seahorse statue at Las Pilitas; then continue up past El Púlpito and have a picnic on the “hidden beach” of Las Amapas.

Love is an emotion that goes hand in hand with art, and in Riviera Nayarit’s Bucerías is the place to find it.

Of course, a day trip to Mykonos Town brings even more high-end boutiques and stores. Aside from fashion, popular draws such as the windmills and Little Venice are less than four kilometres from Kenshō Psarou. Mykonos Airport is three kilometres away so you’re never far from where you need to go.
