The Triopetra Project

The project will be developed on the privately owned property of Emerald covering an area of 1.630.000sqm.

Inspired by the area’s breathtaking natural surroundings and rich cultural heritage, the objective of Emerald is to create a unique leading residential and leisure sea-side resort in the Southern-most part of Europe.

Nestled between undulating hills and a pristine beach skirted by white sand and scintillating blue waters, the development will aim at attaining a harmonious balance with nature and creating a place of serenity. The master-planning, architectural designs and operation will be in keeping with the ecological and cultural features of Crete, conserving, complimenting and reinforcing both. This ecologically designed resort, with an unprecedented level of luxury reaching the highest of standards, will become one of the most desired in the Mediterranean.

With its highly distinguished and unique character, the development will target the high-end markets originating primarily from Germany, U.K., Russia, France, Scandinavian countries and Greece.


The formation of the project consists of two phases:
Phase A is The Integrated Touristic Development
situated along the beach front with an area of 276.572sqm;
Phase B is The Upscale Village Development
situated on the adjacent property with an area of 1.317.630sqm.
