This secluded hotel attracts a well-heeled crowd who like it intimate and private. The modern, stylish suites and villas (all with Jacuzzi or private plunge pool) at Domes of Elounda offer an abundance of living space set in carefully designed landscaped gardens with breathtaking views of the UNESCO protected Spinalonga Islet.

There are three pools (one of which is heated) and a lovely beach lined by olive trees and trendy wooden decking.

There is a mix of cultural and sporty activities on offer from tennis and biking excursions to aqua yoga and day trips to Spinalonga or Knossos. You could lose yourself for days in the zen-like spa with its dark metallic décor and treatments combining Greece’s ancient methods with the latest techniques, while cinema nights, food festivals and workshops will make your holiday truly memorable.

The Core, is the innovative 40,000m2 green urban open-air agora, where art, gastronomy, wellness, culture, fashion, activities and play all come together. Outdoor exhibitions and fascinating installations, food trucks, deli stalls, pop up shops and boutiques comprise a stylish, exciting space to explore with family and friends. Foodies will enjoy mouth-watering delicacies and street food and the little ones will not be able to get enough of the ice cream and waffle bar, the Kids’ Club extension with an eco-playground and the supervised myriad activities, all with a focus on the outdoors.

There is a variety of dining options on offer, with four delectable restaurants to choose from including traditional Greek and fusion as well as theme nights such as fish barbecue night or a progressive adult-only menu showcasing some of the innovative dishes from Crete. At night the resort’s live music bar comes alive with a mix of cool beats and jazz under the starry sky.

All Domes Suites, Domes Lobby, Grand Dome Bar and Tholos Restaurant as of season 2020, have been fully renovated. For those staying in the new fully renovated Family Suites there are some special highlights such as a complimentary children’s lunch, daily ice cream happy hour at the Kids’ Club and mini bathrobe and slippers. All Domes Resorts kids clubs will operate under strict British OFSTED standards.  For couples or larger groups that prefer total privacy there are four über-luxe villas set high above the resort (with fully equipped kitchens), and a number of residences (two, three and four-bedroomed). The stylish Domes Private Residences, contemporary Luxury Residences and the Luxury Villas feature the exclusive “Haute Living Selection”, a boutique hotel within a hotel vision that showcases world-class accommodation with a range of added value services (Suites – Half Board included/ Villas & Residences – Dine Around Included).

Newly updated with a brand new, bold focus in 2020, Blend Steakhouse is the resort's sleek upmarket restaurant. Located by the pool, Blend elevates the art of sourcing extraordinary cuts of meat from local farms as well as hand-picked locations from all over the globe, cooking them to perfection.

Yaosai

Translating to fortress in Chinese, and we feel the hotel couldn’t have picked a more suitable name for their premier Asian restaurant, Yaosai, which offers unobstructed views to Spinalonga. This cosy, intimate restaurant offers Asian-Peruvian fusion cuisine.

Tholos

Located in the main building, Tholos offers Greek and Mediterranean cuisine, with an elegant design and magnificent sea views to Spinalonga and the Gulf of Mirabello. Tholos is our main buffet restaurant where breakfast and half board dinner are served.

Breeze All Day Beach Lounge

On the private beach, Breeze All Day Beach Lounge is the place to be. An utterly relaxing and tranquil source of replenishment, it's your go-to seaside venue for an aromatic cup of coffee, iced cocktail, beer or juice.

Yaosai Pool Bar

The elegant Yaosai Pool Bar sits right on the edge of the main pool so you can pick your spot in the sun, laze around and sip a drink or refreshment of your choice. Try the signature cocktails too which have been created by expert mixologists.

Grand Domes Lobby Bar

Open from morning to midnight, the Grand Domes Lobby Bar is elegant and memorable, pairing a classic luxe setting with perfectly mixed cocktails, premium spirits and more. It remains a firm favourite in Elounda nightlife.

Domes Plaza Bar Pool

The most elite place to enjoy a drink is the Domes Plaza Bar Pool near the Luxury Residences. Open from morning to evening, it will serve you chilled champagne under the bright Greek sun as well as diverse options in beverages, drinks and snacks.

Core Street Food

The signature CORE concept at Domes of Elounda also offers tantalising foodie treats, with selections including everything from ice cream and waffles to cooked-to-order international street food. Dishes vary from season to season, to make the best of nature's treasures.

As soon as we arrived I knew I could relax and enjoy the views!

I just wanted to let you know that we have safely returned from Domes of Elounda in Crete and we had an amazing time. The weather was fantastic and not a cloud in the sky. As soon as we arrived I knew I could relax and enjoy the views! It was stunning.  Kids loved every minute and they didn’t want to go back home. I’m sure we will visit Crete again in the near future.

Loved this place…

Loved this place. It was great to be able to let the kids wander round knowing they’d be safe and the staff are looking out for them. Nothing is too much trouble – whatever you need the staff will sort. Any problems and they are sorted almost instantly. The villa was amazing. Having our own pool was great for us all. The pool at the villa was a great size so we only went to the resort pool once. The garden was also a beautiful sun trap so even though it was windy on some days we were sheltered. We would definitely go back and I would definitely recommend it!

We really enjoyed our recent holiday to Domes of Elounda…

We really enjoyed our recent holiday to Domes of Elounda. The villa was fantastic with a much larger pool than expected and an excellent location near the family pool and kids club. Restaurants were good – I would highly recommend booking in advance during high season. Kids club is good if you have children who are under 6 and happy to do inside games & art. Fantastic option in the evenings to leave the kids in the club for a movie/disco/magic show whilst we had dinner. Our girls (6 and 4) loved the mornings and evenings in the kids club. The staff are very friendly and helpful with a relaxed manner. Overall we loved it and will certainly be returning next year.

Very good accommodation with excellent facilities…

Very good accommodation with excellent facilities for a party which included 4 adults and 2 young children. From the moment we arrived until we left the staff were friendly and helpful always willing to go that extra bit to provide us with anything we needed. There was plenty to occupy the children and with the good weather for the majority of our stay they were kept entertained. The onsite restaurants provide a good choice of quality food.
