Experiences and Well being events
Please note for the most of our guest we organize these unique events focusing on the interaction of local artists with persons that are interested in culture.
1.Greek Food tasting experience.
Your guest will enjoy wine and food and try the variety of Greek elusive tastes. Vegetarian, vegan, mediterranean cuisine is here. Different Greek plates , ‘mezedes” and desserts at the end. Everything you need for a complete vacation is here.
We organize this Greek taste tour with Cretan products. Focusing on the great benefits of the spices and high quality materials that most visitors don’t have the opportunity to learn about. Greek cooking offers an incredibly rich and diverse array of foods and beverages that are the culmination of literally thousands of years of living,cooking, and eating. While each Greek meal is fresh and inviting, it is also a trip back through Greece’s history. The names of foods, cooking methods, and basic ingredients have changed little over time. Bread, olives (and olive oil), and wine constituted the triptych of the Greek diet for many centuries, just as they do today.
Experience a mouth-watering selection of the finest local ingredients with friendly service in an amazing seafront setting.
We will make a food tour of 5 Cretan and Greek original dishes on the Beach Faedra restaurant. The dinner is a presentation 5 different particular taste experiences.
2.Greek Dance Lesson on the Beach.

Damianos is a professional musician, traditional dancer and music instrument constructor.
The point is for all guests to have a original Sirtaki & Food Night.

Our workshop promotes and highlights the richness and benefits of simple, traditional, creative, autonomous and dignified Cretan daily life.

3.Music improvisational meetings.
Faedra Beach Crete’s sun sets just got better. Every week is dubbed a ‘music composition workshop’ at noon on the pool resto.
The ‘labouring’ starts with the sweet sounds of the African band and local music friends, and the experience tops off with Greek meze specials.
The participants are a mixture of mature folks and millennials in the same space, with the aim of enjoying some jazz and Greek music. One could also consider the event an open-mic occasion as patrons who are interested can take over the mic to serenade with reggae songs drizzled with a cup of jazz and Greek compositions.
4.Group Drumming and Wellbeing.
We support that the Benefits of Playing Music Help Your Brain More Than Any Other Activity. I traveled o south America, Europe and Africa learning and participating in music workshops about rhythms and music therapy.
We will proceed to a workshop called a “drum jam” or “jam session,” and typical the setting include the beach in the open area of the hotel . We will experience a group drumming that is more than just for social gathering. Recently a growing number of mental health organizations have begun developing community music-making interventions for those suffering from anxiety and depression.
We will use our energy to interact with music.Group drumming contributes to well-being, and even goes as far as to improve anxiety and depression. Drumming is universal. It transcends age, gender, race and nationality. It doesn’t require participants to read music or understand music theory. Even those without a background in drumming can participate in group drumming (sometimes referred to as a drumming circle).
We invite you to the photo exhibitions that will take place in our hotel ,with the name of the « Athivoli » which means the reference ,the mention ,the thought and memory of something which is still around us just like a Vibe although it no longer exist.
