Akrimios - Orizon Complex
A family-run small hotel, a restaurant and a community center
Akrimios-Orizon is more than just an attractive, family run small hotel. Akrimios-Orizon is the dream that Ingrid Margarita Strobl, her husband Petros Kokotsakis and their four children have pursued for many years, in order to create a truly new and all-embracing ‘hosting formula', able to satisfy the needs of many different types of guests coming from all over the world and from all walks of life.
Immersed in lush green, Akrimios-Orizon overlooks to the North the deep blue, glittering sea of the Souda Bay and to the South the eternally snow-capped peaks of the Lefka Ori’s range also called the White Mountains. Its splendid location makes it so that a guest strolling across its grounds, whether on the way to the terraced café, the swimming pool or the meditation and seminars hall, located in a secluded and even quieter part of the complex, is surprised by ever changing visual impressions of incredible beauty.
Akrimios-Orizon is a place where it is possible to enjoy biological food produced directly by the Kokotsaki family and where it is quite possible to 'bump' into a Cretan evening with traditional music, songs and dances reminiscent of Zorba's times.
This is the perfect setting to host a wonderfully romantic wedding whether it is an intimate destination wedding or a traditional Greek wedding with the whole family. Akrimios-Orizon can handle your group of up to several hundred guests.
Another side of Akrimios-Orizon is its ability to transform into a peaceful oasis for holding self-development seminars. Orizon Spiritual Center is a specially designed, quiet area within the Akrimios complex. Over the last two decades, Orizon Spiritual Center has hosted several seminars and retreats with well know international teachers. Those who live in the nearby towns can also attend weekly classes in Kundalini Yoga, Meditation (i.e Full moon meditation, Solstice and Equinox meditation) as well as meet with like-minded people in Consciousness raising groups.
We welcome you to Akrimios-Orizon, whether you look for a quiet holiday, hosting a big event or you want an opportunity to grow and develop yourself. You can find it all right here.
