Tree of Life Art Hotel


The "Tree of Life" is a meeting spot of travellers from all over the world, friendly towards families, designed with a love of the arts, a comfortable stay and the "art" of hospitality.
The Tree of Life is a symbol of almost all civilizations, and for us a symbol of recreation and of connecting diverse civilizations and nationalities.
On the northern point of the prefecture of Chania, on the island of Crete, only 30 steps from the sandy beach of Agia Marina with the azure, warm sea, where, if you are lucky you will see the caretta-caretta turtles that hatch in mid-summer.
Most of the rooms have a view of the pool and the interior garden, with beautiful Yucca palm trees. At the pool bar you can taste refreshing cocktails with fresh herbs and Cretan aloe from our garden.

Art Hotel

With your first steps at the entrance to the Tree of Life, paintings, modern artifacts and retro (every year new works are added) and the seemingly incoherent abundance of objects, in combination with aromatic plants, Cretan aloe, jasmine and Yucca palms, the candles at sunset, begin to tantalize the senses of visitors with the colours and aromas of Crete.
Each room has a different theme, and name. There is a noble surreal and folklore feel which embraces the communal areas, moments of relaxation at the aromatic garden of the pool with the pool bar serving refreshing cocktails and at the meeting point, "YAMAS" can be heard in many languages.
The style of the Tree of Life is a voyage which began 8 years ago. From the start, Angeliki tried to combine the amenities for relaxing holidays with the aroma of art and true hospitality, on one of the most beautiful islands in the world, with a civilization of 10,000 years. The art of hospitality is a priority, as is the love of exploration of the island. Don't hesitate to ask for information for secret destinations. She knows them all!!


Don't miss breakfast, which is served up to 11:00 am. We don't clear the tables until everyone has had their breakfast.
A week is not sufficient to taste everything from the buffet.
Marmalade made by us, kaltsounakia with spinach, Cretan olive oil, "kouloura", orange cake with extra virgin olive oil (also home-made), fresh fruit and vegetables in-season, Greek yoghurt with thyme honey from the area, sweets on the spoon, freshly squeezed juice from local oranges, and fresh eggs prepared as per your preference (from our chickens.)

Art Gift Shop

"Greece doesn't deserve plastic souvenirs" is what a guest from Finland wrote when he visited the gift shop. Here you will find "The Art to be Cretan" collection of t-shirts and tote beach bags with designs from our hands! :-) The most popular are the YAMAS t-shirts found around the world and in their third year (2020) of re-printing. Hand-made ceramics, clay candle holders, small statues of Minoan period figures, magnets with sketches of Chania, soap of aloe and olive oil, and even drawn sketches of posters from Hellenic Tourism over the past 70 years, make up some of our souvenirs.
