Daios Cove Luxury Resort and Villas

A luxury resort set in its own private cove

5 Star


Once seen, never forgotten. It's the location which dazzles guests when they arrive on the secluded bay at Daios Cove Luxury Resort & Villas. Nestling on a hillside on the beautiful northern coast of Crete, the views are sublime with a kaleidoscope of colour from the turquoise sea, spectacular verdant slopes and terraced gardens, a yellow crescent of private beach and a wide expanse of azure sky.

Just 10 minutes away from the cosmopolitan town of Aghios Nikolaos and 20 minutes from the village of Elounda. Located right on the waterfront with its private sandy beach, the resort represents the perfect integration between architecture and design with the surrounding environment.
