Overview

Daios Cove Luxury Resort and Villas is an indulgent beach escape that’s as welcoming as it is beautiful. This family-friendly resort offers stunning sea views from every room, a comprehensive catalogue of facilities and delicious dining options.

Nestled in a private cove, the hotel is located on Crete’s north eastern coast – sand and shallow sea is accessible via the hotel’s funicular and a set of steps. The town of Agios Nikolaos is five short miles away and the picturesque town of Elounda is 11 miles away. The pretty town of Plaka is 14 miles away and provides boats to the historical Spinalonga island. If you’re hiring a car – the easiest way to explore the island – the hotel offers free parking. The hotel is 42 miles from Heraklion International Airport.

Approaching the hotel through its own olive grove, your first impression will be a lasting one. The innovative architecture – made from the rocks which were excavated from the cove – combines curves of wood, rattan, rough stone and linen. Deluxe rooms are open-plan, with a bedroom and living area, as well as a balcony looking out to the Mediterranean Sea. Bathrooms are lined with marble, with a separate bath and shower cabin. Upgrade to a room type with your very own pool. Or treat yourself to an All Inclusive stay by booking a suite or villa, with access to the hotel’s Residents’ Club.

Other facilities

Everyone’s looked after here, whether you’re travelling with, or without children. At the Crèche Club - accredited by the Worldwide Kids Company - and the Children’s Club, multilingual staff supervise games and activities – ages 4 to 11 can visit here free of charge. There’s also an outdoor kids’ pool and teenagers can relax in the activities room. The water sports in the bay are diverse enough for every family member – kids can enjoy water skiing from the age of four and older children can try sailing or even windsurfing.

Adults seeking a quiet break can head to the adult-only pool, or the GOCO spa, which provides a collection of experiences to enhance well-being and calm the mind. Treat yourself to one of the spa’s signature treatments. The Cretan Renaissance Ceremony uses products by Anne Semonin and Cretan herbs to soothe, detoxify and nourish, while the Dramatic Healing Skin Care by 111Skin includes a multi-sensory experience with massage and clinical grade treatments from its creator’s clinic in Harley Street, London. The spa also provides a fitness consultation with a 3D scanner, as well as personal training, aqua fitness, yoga and Pilates sessions. If you want to train like an athlete on holiday, the hotel collaborates with BXR London, London’s premier boxing club, for strengthening and conditioning classes.

Dining information

Dining at the resort centres around the Pangea restaurant, which provides a buffet-style food bazaar at breakfast and dinner for Half Board guests. Enjoy a tasty array of spectacular delicacies from all over the world, including vegetarian and vegan options, along with special theme nights. This isn’t your typical international buffet fare – expect a la carte cuisine served buffet style. There’s also an adult-only and family friendly zone, where kids eat reassuringly well with healthy and interesting mains – try the perfectly cooked risotto. Kids also have a 18:00 dinner sitting with their own, lower-set buffet. At lunch time, many guests choose to head to The Ocean restaurant, where dishes are large enough to share.

If you’re looking to dine a la carte, take advantage of the EUR 30 credit per person (drinks not included) – visit Taverna for traditional Greek cuisine and freshly caught fish, the Beach House for seasonal Mediterranean dishes, or Ocean Restaurant, updated for 2020, for an exciting menu of seasonal flavours curated by the multi-award winning Ducasse Conseil team. Health-conscious guests can tuck into carefully created dishes available at the a la carte restaurants, formulated by nutritionist and holistic consultant Sarah Safarian (charges apply). Expect delicious seasonal fare which supports the immune system, eases digestion and improves balance in the body.

The Ocean Bar and the Crystal Box bar have partnered with award-winning cocktail creators, The Clumsies, to bring a menu of unique tipples accompanied by light bites from the hotel’s Ducasse Conseil team (charges apply). Be sure to stop by The Beach House for Magic Mondays, providing a chilled soundtrack to the sunset –alongside laid-back Cretan food. There’s also Native Sounds, playing live traditional Cretan music, on differing nights of the week.

Additional information

Half Board guests receive a buffet breakfast and dinner in the Pangea restaurant (drinks not included). Alternatively, for dinner, guests enjoy EUR 30 credit per person per night – or EUR 20 for children - towards an a la carte dinner (drinks not included). Why not upgrade to All Inclusive to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as drinks and the hotel’s premium cocktails?

In response to Coronavirus (COVID-19) the indoor pool remains closed until further notice. You will need to pre-book to use the gym as there is a reduced capacity. Housekeeping during your stay will be available on request – sheets and towels will be changed every second day unless advised otherwise. The kids’ club operates outdoor activities only.
