Domes of Elounda, Autograph Collection 5 Star

A luxurious retreat with magnificent sea views for couples and families


A luxury retreat for both couples and families, the Domes of Elounda hotel lies on Crete’s north-east coast in the sun-drenched shores of Elounda.

The accommodation’s ten acres are set amid rugged mountains, laid out in a secluded bay with fine white sands and clear blue waters. Consisting of 78 suites, four ultra-luxe villas, eight private residences and 28 luxury residences, the resort also has four restaurants, five pools and a contemporary spa.

Guests can relax on the olive tree-lined private beach, which is perfect for families thanks to its shallow waters and ‘Blue Flag’ status.

The Domes of Elounda’s cuisine caters for every taste from barbecues to Cretan-style delicacies, with diners offered the choice of a casual beachside backdrop ideal for families, or a more intimate setting for meals for two.

Sail away for day trips to the beautifully tranquil Spinalonga Island, or take a short taxi ride to visit the village of Elounda and sample the many tavernas, restaurants and shops on offer.
