Family holiday in Crete | Kiani Beach Resort & exploring Chania | AD Press Trip

With temperatures averaging 18°C and plenty of low cost flights taking off from the UK at the beginning of April, Crete is a perfect destination for a family holiday in Europe after a long, chilly winter. So, when an invite to review Kiani Beach Resort – an all inclusive family resort in Crete – dropped into my inbox, it didn’t take me long to book our plane tickets.

Kiani Beach Resort is a 5 star, all inclusive resort and is located on a Blue Flag award-winning beach near the traditional Greek town of Kalyves. At the front of this luxury hotel complex you have panoramic views of the turquoise waters of Souda Bay across to the mountain terrain of Cape Drapanos. And at the back, you can see the incredible Lefka Ori mountain range, also known as the White Mountains. During our visit to Kiani Beach Resort the mountains were capped with snow. The contrast in landscapes was breathtaking.

This video shares some things to do in Chania, Crete with kids, plus an overview of the Kiani Beach Resort which is a family-friendly all-inclusive resort in Western Crete.

Hi there, I’m Claire – a late-30s mummy to a busy primary schooler and smiley toddler, and wife to a Royal Navy Officer.

Tin Box Traveller is a UK family travel blog that I use to share our adventures and inspire others to explore new places. I’ve been a wanderer from the day dot. Some of my earliest memories are from living in Hong Kong while my dad was working there until I started school.

Back in the UK my weekends and holidays as a pre-teen and teen were spent caravanning all over the UK. So it’s no surprise that exploring the great outdoors and new places are two of my biggest passions. Meet the rest of the team:
