Outdoor space

Since 2013 Hotel Peli provides a new outdoor area ideal for yoga and pilates, already chosen by many yoga teachers coming to Crete with their groups. A wooden construction made of oak and pine (which will be covered with a waterproof roof in 2015) is 3m high, 6m wide and 10m long, giving the total surface of 60m2. It was meant to satisfy the different needs of yoga styles offered in our hotel. The rope wall makes this space appropriate for Iyengar Yoga. Different styles of yoga and pilates are welcome as we offer the sufficient yoga equipment such as mats, wooden blocks, foams, belts and blankets. All equipment is well maintained and regularly washed. The space’s capacity level varies from 15-18 persons.

Daily program

The morning session lasts from 8-10 am. After your yoga workout , at the swimming pool you can enjoy your breakfast designed to meet your dietary requirements. Since the next session begins in the late afternoon at 6 pm, you have lots of time for both the relax and the meditation enjoying the tranquility of the different hotel’s areas (swimming pool with our stylishly designed bar, small “secret garden” by the outdoor yoga space, library where you can chill out with one of our books available in many different languages, breakfast terrace with the view to the nearby sea). Alternatively at your disposal is the beautiful sandy beach at the 50m walking distance, nearby hills for those who want to be closer to the pure nature.
To call it a day you can have the intimate meeting with the Cretan cuisine in one of the sea or nearby taverns – many of them are located at the famous Kissamos promenade.


The breakfast that we provide to our yoga practitioners takes place at the swimming pool area under the shadow of an elegant and summer style decorated pergola. Breakfast is meant to give the Greek family get-together concept of the meal and is served in a style of a table where you can freely chat choosing from the generous variety of the foods just in front of you. The guests can enjoy the homemade products from our garden as well as from the local producers – the friends of the family. Then this way you can taste goat and sheep yoghurt and milk, freshly squeezed orange juice, home eggs cooked according to your preferences, local spread cheese called “mizithra”, fresh and dry fruits, olive oil, thyme honey, muesli, home grown tomatoes and olives, variety of brown and white bread, marmalades, variety of local mountains herbs, tea and coffee. You will also have an opportunity to pick some figs yourself from the trees located near the breakfast table. The nice friendly atmosphere at the table is completed further by homemade cake, biscuits and fruit compote. Would you like to see anything special on the table for your group, just let us know.
Should you have any questions, need any information, we will try to answer all of them providing you with the clear and extensive details on the subject.
This service is designed exclusively for the yoga practitioners and includes the high standard individual care like recommendations of the special diets or easy access to health practitioners so our guests get the best from their holidays.
