Location

Domes of Elounda meets all the demanding criteria of a luxury resort: impeccable service, elegant design, harmony with nature in an exceptional setting and top-of-the-range restaurants. The modern and elegant furnishings of the rooms are accompanied by a refined decoration whose design varies from one space to another, making each stay a unique experience. The idyllic setting in which the hotel is harmoniously located will immediately win over city travellers and enthusiasts of the city’s steep roads, history lovers and enthusiasts of the far niente.

If Crete’s reputation is well established, the easternmost part of the island is certainly one of its best assets. The fortress overlooking the Spinalonga peninsula is a site that must be visited. The nearby village of Plaka and the surrounding coves will offer calm and serenity to families, while allowing the finest gourmets to taste the best local dishes in one of the village’s restaurants. The CretAquarium is also worth a visit: the country’s first aquarium, it will amaze adults and children alike with its ultra-modern facilities that offer visitors an unforgettable immersive experience.

This exceptional destination is located 120 minutes from Heraklion International Airport. A transfer service, whose luxurious cars are equipped with car seats adapted to the age of your children, is available on request from your Little Concierge.

For families of 2 to 4 people, Little Guest recommends the 90 m2 Family Suites with outdoor hot tub and sea view. In these suites, the two bedrooms have a King-size bed and two single beds respectively, as well as a sofa bed each. Each room has a spacious bathroom made of natural granite or marble.

Big families who wish to share their daily life while keeping the possibility of spending moments of intimacy in peace and quiet will be delighted to occupy the sumptuous three-bedroom luxury villas: 450 m2 of elegant and spacious living spaces plus a private sauna, a 35 m2 outdoor swimming pool heated in spring and autumn, a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Elounda and a full range of VIP services for young and old.

An unforgettable delight, whether you are inside or on the long terraces of these dream villas.

 

Gastronomy

Domes of Elounda has four restaurants with unparalleled refinement. High chairs and allergen-free children’s menus are available in three of the hotel’s four dining areas.

The Zeen 1910 restaurant literally overlooks the sea, the tables are set on a magnificent pale blue wooden pontoon. The pleasure of the eyes is combined with the pleasure of the taste buds. It serves refined Greek dishes and a wide range of seafood products. Freshness and flavour are guaranteed, for toddlers and adults alike.

At the table of the Tholos gourmet restaurant, the view is just as impressive, from the top of a cozy terrace overlooking the Gulf. The extensive buffet is suitable for vegetarians and gourmets alike who are demanding in terms of product quality and origin. It serves a varied Mediterranean cuisine, full of colour and taste, which the cooks prepare on sight. It is also where the great morning buffet is prepared. What better way to start the day than to enjoy a cup of tea of choice while watching the Mare Nostrum awaken and transmit its thousand-year-old serenity to us? Children will appreciate the dishes designed for their young appetites and the wide range of drinks that the restaurant offers. For the pleasure of all, theme evenings are regularly organised.

Blend Restaurant offers the best in Italian cuisine. The Chef also allows himself some liberties whose inventiveness will surprise you. The menu ranges from pizzas to pasta, refined starters and many traditional desserts. Children’s menu is just like the menu offered to adults: diversified, colourful, based on fresh, local products, all succulent without exception; you can taste it in your mouth! The refined atmosphere of this subdued interior along the pool will offer a moment of calm, relaxation and sharing to all families in an elegant setting where the staff takes care of you.

A change of scenery for a meal between adults: the refinement of Japanese cuisine, the uniqueness of Peruvian ingredients and the contrasts of Chinese flavours blend harmoniously in this restaurant with its evocative name, Yaosai, which means fortress in Chinese. The restaurant bears its name well, as it is a haven of peace with a unique atmosphere, a stone’s throw from the castle on the island of Spinalonga. The feeling of change of scene is total, both from the point of view of the aesthetic experience and the refined dishes that are enjoyed. This restaurant is however reserved for adults and children over 16 years old, a detour to this mysterious fortress may involve families entrusting their children to one of the hotel’s babysitters.

They can practice drawing, water sports, climbing, cycling, billiards or tennis, to name just a few of the many activities available. During these moments of conviviality where parents can relax, fresh, local and organic snacks are served to our dear little ones.

According to their tastes and desires, teenagers can also enjoy the myriad of sporting activities that this paradise site offers. Water sports, cycling, group games and beach activities are on the teen club’s programme. The artistic and creative disciplines are not left out either.

Infants are equally pampered at Domes of Elounda; everything has been thought out down to the last detail to ensure that their stay runs smoothly. With a top-of-the-range babysitting service of which the hotel is particularly proud, a nursery for toddlers from four months old, state-of-the-art childcare equipment, among which we can mention some classics such as the stroller, the adapted bathtub but also folding beds to watch over baby in complete peace of mind from the private pool of your villa. At Bakaliko Mini Market, you can get absolutely everything you need for your baby’s well-being. Forgetting wipes or a shortage of small pots is no longer a problem at Domes of Elounda, which is committed to providing a privileged welcome for children, infants and parents. Nothing is left to chance. For example, special baby menus are prepared by the chefs of the hotel’s various restaurants on request and according to your needs. You can therefore organise a stay with your very young child in complete serenity.

 

FAMILY EXPERIENCES

The hotel offers countless sailing trips in the Gulf of Elounda, food festivals, film screenings and barbecue evenings.

Even though the hotel is equipped with wi-fi antennas for a reliable broadband connection, you can also opt for a few days of digital detoxification. You will then trade your screens for a retro-looking fishing boat, free of digital constraints, you will feel free again and sail on calm seas for a well-deserved return to your roots. An experience not so trivial as one might think, during which the Domes of Elounda, taking this very seriously, accompanies you with the benevolence that characterises it.

 

FOR PARENTS

Mom and Dad can enjoy the joys of the Spa, the beauty of the site and the benefits of the sea every day. They can learn to cook locally – sweet or salty -, taste refined olive oils they have never tasted before, go on a romantic cruise for a few hours, accompanied by an English-speaking guide to discover the island’s paradisiacal coves, some of which are so intact that they seem unexplored.

Sports parents also have the opportunity to book fitness, diving and water yoga lessons with a qualified instructor. The beach surrounding the hotel is an idyllic place where you can reconnect your body and mind in total harmony.

Testimony of Boris

Boris, 38 years old, globetrotter, always looking for exclusive holidays destinations

 

 

In October, my partner and I spent a short romantic stay at the Domes of Elounda, a beautiful hotel located in Crete.

Arrival in paradise

Upon our arrival, the hotel staff greeted us with a refreshing and delicious drink. Our check-in lasted 5 minutes, then we were given an explanation of the measures to be taken to avoid the spread of the notorious Covid-19. After this small procedural (but necessary) speech, we joined our room, where our luggage was already waiting for us.

The room was very well located, in the center of the Resort and close to the restaurants and the reception, very clean and superbly decorated, we immediately felt at home.

We really appreciated the small welcome gift (a bottle of wine and cookies) and fell in love with the magnificent sea view!

Good vibes guaranteed

The CORE is the place to be at the Domes of Elounda! It is a kind of agora located in the center of the Resort where you can walk around to spend a good evening. You can attend art exhibitions, events, shows, … . Theme dinners accompanied by music are also organized for families.

It is a real pleasure to be able to wander between the small huts that offer food and local products without having to leave the hotel.

“We fell in love with the magnificent sea view!”

Sights around the Resort

If you wish to spend an afternoon outside the Resort, I advise you to go to Agios Nikolaos. Located only 13 kilometers from your accommodation, this charming little port town is ideal for an afternoon or evening stroll. You can dine in one of the many small restaurants to enjoy the delicious Cretan specialties.

Spinalonga island, which can be admired from the hotel’s beach, can be reached in 2 minutes by speedboat. We loved discovering the history of the fortress of this small island and highly recommend you to visit it during your stay at the Domes of Elounda.

Finally, you will also have the opportunity to visit a farm that produces a delicious and traditional olive oil, 11 kilometers away from the hotel. A very nice experience too!

 

MORE THAN KIDS-FRIENDLY

We were traveling without children, but we were given the mission to inquire about the activities offered to the youngest ones, in order to determine if we could recommend the establishment to our friends with kids.

We had the opportunity to take a look at the very nice infrastructure of the kids-club and the teens-club. In addition to the playrooms for the different age groups, there are also great outdoor playgrounds for the children. A multitude of activities are available for the pleasure of young and old alike: games, sports and water activities of all kinds.

 

“A multitude of activities are available for the pleasure of young and old alike.”

 

Regarding the babies equipment, all the elements mentioned on the Little Guest website were available: pacifiers, baby monitors, emergency bottles, …
Just make a call to the front desk to get what you need. Very convenient so you don’t have to fill your suitcases with heavy and bulky equipment.

As you can see, the hotel passes the family-friendly test with flying colors!

 

IN Conclusion: EXCELLENT

In conclusion, we loved our stay at the Domes of Elounda Hotel and can only recommend it to all families wishing to spend a successful vacation in a 5-star hotel. Crete is waiting for you!

See you soon, 

Boris
