Operated by SWOT Hospitality, JW Marriott Crete Resort & Spa is set to open its doors in 2025 on the outskirts of the town of Chania. Designed by architecture firm Block722, the resort’s design will blend modern elegance with authentic Cretan heritage. 160 stylishly appointed guestrooms will be on offer, with all suites and villas featuring a private pool or jacuzzi. 

Design plans for the resort also comprise multiple tranquil wellness spaces – including swimming pools, a fitness centre, beach club and spa – and five culinary experiences, such as a traditional Cretan restaurant and a beach dining venue.
