Chania, and Crete in general, have a long tradition of providing hospitality services that are among the best in the world. And there is good reason for that.
Many decades ago, when tourism in Southern Europe started becoming popular, visitors to Greece were amazed by the friendliness of the locals, who routinely went out of their way to serve them better. This was more prevalent in Crete, where the local traditional hospitality was so warm that visitors were treated like a member of their host’s family. And this spirit of taking great care for the visitor, is still alive in today’s top hospitality services in Chania.
The story of the tradition of hospitality in Chania: From farmers and fishermen to successful hoteliers
Today, the tourism industry has a set of certain guidelines and rules that make it far easier for someone starting out to get up to speed with professional hospitality. But when tourism in Chania and Crete was at its beginnings in the 50s and 60s, the situation was very different.
At that time, most people in the countryside of Crete and Greece – and in most of Southern Europe – were farmers, breeders or fishermen. And they tried to do their best for the ever growing number of tourists, without any formal tourism education.
It was at that time that the tradition of hospitality in Chania and Crete made all the difference. The locals treated the visitors like family members, which caused a large mouth to mouth spontaneous promotion from the visitors themselves, that through the years and the decades made Crete famous for the authentic, unpretentious hospitality of its people.
Things moved forward, and the hospitality sector in Crete boomed. More organized hospitality services were offered, and more and more hotels were being managed by people who had studied tourism as a profession. But this spirit of the traditional hospitality is still present in many forms, even in the younger generations of the people in Chania.
Although many changes have taken place in the last 60 years, Chania and Crete are still known all over the world for their top hospitality services and tradition. And you can still trace this tradition in the Cretan temperament.
