“At Brown Hotels, we’re passionate about hospitality in all its aspects and the stories behind each and every one of our 50 hotels from the high-spirited, urban hotels, to sophisticated design resorts,” said Leon Avigad, Founder of Brown Hotels. “Isla Brown Chania will continue to raise the standards for the Crete hospitality scene with its stylish and luxurious design, led by the famous Liakos Associates Architects, complete with all the signature Brown Hotels’ experiences.”

Maximising the use of natural materials, the guestrooms have an organic aesthetic of earthy tones, decorated in cream, taupe and brown shades, with plush green velvet and marble furnishings, natural wood fixtures and upscale gold accents. Following suit, the main areas of the hotel are decorated in the same warm, earthy tones, with natural wood fixtures and furnishings and deluxe gold detailing. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow for streams of natural light to illuminate the space, whilst connecting the inside with the out, drawing the eye across the Mediterranean Sea.
