Cretan Malia Park was fully renovated by Vana Pernari Architecture Studio. The wild Cretan, and in specific Malian flora, with palm trees, Indian figs and local banana trees, are part of beautiful exotic Mediterranean gardens which remain until today a strong reference point and a source of inspiration for its architecture and style.

Vana Pernari Architecture Studio‘s approach is always aesthetic, functional, experimental, respecting nature and its balance, aiming at creating meaningful spaces. They are constantly searching for more light, space and green. Inspired by Van Gogh‘s quote ‘The Mediterranean has the colour of mackerel, changeable I mean. You don’t always know if it is green or violet, you can’t even say it’s blue, because the next moment the changing reflection has taken on a tint of rose or grey.’, the colour palette of a typical Mediterranean area is very much present at the hotel.

Material-wise, Vana Pernari Architecture Studio used natural materials like marble, cotto, wood and brass avoiding artificial materials while creating bright spaces with relaxed, earthy and slightly boho mood but with a touch of colour and elegance, to bring inside the colours and joy of the hotel’s amazing gardens as well as the colours found on the murals and artworks of Crete’s Minoan palaces presented in an exotic way.
