Crete has an extremely rich cultural and natural heritage. Preserved beaches, abandoned coves, gorges, cliffs…lovers of walks in the countryside will not be disappointed. From small churches to ancient fortresses, you can also discover the history of the island, considered as one of the cradles of our civilization. The four biggest cities of the island are: Chania (3h30 drive from Daios), Rethymno (2h30), Heraklion (1h) and Agios Nikolaos (15 minutes).

According to your wishes, the Daios team will be happy to create personalized excursions, adapted to your wishes. Only a 1-hour drive away, we recommend visiting Heraklion with its famous Palace of Knossos, its fortress and its archeology museum.

If you have time to take a break on the road to Heraklion, the Dinosauria park (about 40 minutes from the hotel), will entertain the little adventurers. During a walk in a beautiful park you will cross the path of life-size dinosaurs!

For fun with the family, many water sports are offered by the Daios such as pedalo, canoeing or water skiing. So many ideal and refreshing options on a hot summer day. The facility also offers a diving centre patented by the PADI World Federation, the opportunity to explore the underwater wonders of the region for the most experienced and to try this magical sport for novices (from 8 years). The two tennis courts and the many group classes (yoga, pilates) also give athletes the opportunity to enjoy themselves.



At sunset, the Daios offers evenings with live music and DJ sets. Jazz, Latino nights, traditional music of the region: the programs are varied and guarantee you unforgettable evenings under the stars, embellished with delicious cocktails.

Many activities can be tailor-made for Mom and Dad such as tastings of the best wines of the region.

The GOCO Spa immerses you in 2500 sqm (26910 sqft) of relaxation and voluptuousness. While the house Anne Semonin (Paris) offers you its best products, some massages invite you to travel and experience all the know-how of Asian massage.

Daios Cove, A bubble of well-being


Little Guest Hotels Collection Aude

Aude, Director of Reservations at Little Guest, from Limoges, France



In October 2018, I had the privilege of staying at the Daios Cove Luxury Resort & Villas *****, a Cretan pearl nestled in the heart of a protected cove. Let me explain in three points why I fell in love with this enchanting place.


A perfect geographical location

Located in a preserved natural environment, Daios Cove is the ideal destination for families looking for modernity, luxury and privacy. When you enter the idyllic cove overlooking the hotel, it is as if time has stopped to lock you in a small bubble of well-being and comfort.
Children love climbing the cable car to the beach and admiring the turquoise waters that caress the fine sand, all dominated by rocks whose intense ochre colour contrasts with the soft monochrome of green painted by the surrounding vegetation.


A Inimitable service

After a warm check-in, we were driven to our room by cart. We stayed in a Deluxe Sea View Room with a Private Swimming Pool, a design and bright space that inspires well-being and tranquility. The quality of service is one of the aspects that impressed me the most: from drivers to concierges and bar and restaurant waiters, each staff member is simply adorable and professional.

Daios Cove is undoubtedly a sure bet for families. It’s with confidence and assurance that I recommend this destination to parents looking for a hotel with discreet and refined luxury, where the service is simply impeccable. The beach boys, for example, are extremely attentive: when you arrive at the beach, they give you a warm and enthusiastic welcome, and bend over backwards to satisfy your desires. They even get to know your name and sun exposure preferences!

An omnipresent family spirit

During school holidays, the atmosphere is at its best at Daios Cove! The hotel affirms its position as a family-friendly establishment thanks to the many activities and facilities designed for our little ones. Children’s laughter and their legendary good humour mark the rhythm of days, a true joy.

I had the opportunity to discover the kids-club and I would leave my children there with my eyes closed! Original and colourful, the decoration awakens children’s senses and seduces parents. The hosts and babysitters speak French and are truly professional, which inspires confidence. The mini club is even open some nights to let Mom and Dad enjoy a dinner for two!



With much affection,
