An older style building with a modern pool bar, fast food type snack bar and a reasonably sized pool and set in compact grounds. In contrast, the internal main bar and lounge are more sophisticated with some traditional, homely Greek touches.
Exclusive to the young and lively section of the UK market, the nightlife is ideally located right on its doorstep.
A single angular block, coloured in off-white concrete with arched features. Generously sized balconies are shaded with either plain concrete frontages or ornate white railings. The entrance to the property is more attractive with the use of natural stone.
Property type: Apartments
Balcony/Terrace: Some rooms
The impressive reception, main bar and lobby incorporate local stone with cream coloured decor and chunky wicker furnishings with patterned cushions. A lime green sail-effect ceiling adds colour, and the open fireplace and vases filled with candles add warmth, even when not lit.
Mainly tiled, the grounds feature a single tall palm tree and some flowering bushes on the rear wall. The pool surround is fairly narrow, but a fake grass lawn provides further sunbed space.
The pool has a volleyball net, features metal steps only, and the water level is quite far down from the edge.
Seating areas vary from colourful directors’ chairs to wooden furnishings under thatched parasols. The pool bar has a contemporary look and is located next to the snack bar with an open kitchen and pool table.
Area Type: Malibu Resort is located behind a bar on the road that runs parallel to Malia’s main strip, surrounded by other apartments with a wide selection of bars, eateries, clubs and shops in the immediate vicinity. The beach is a 10 minute walk away.
