Daios Cove is a luxury beach resort set in its own private cove. For a home away from home, stay at a private villa and enjoy exclusive privileges.
With an innovative and sympathetic design, the resort hides away from the rest of Crete on a cliff edge. Below, the private cove is shallow and safe and has a lovely sandy beach. Look out over the bay from the heated outdoor infinity pool.
All villas are over two storeys so you have both privacy and space, sea views and private seawater pools. They feature spacious bedrooms, each with their own lavish bathroom. There’s an airy living room with a dining area. Best of all, a spacious and private sundeck area and large furnished terrace mean you can enjoy being outside as much as indoors.
All villas enjoy personalised essential oil room fragrances and a private pool heated up to a pleasant 25 degrees. There’s breakfast service at the Italian-style Ocean restaurant with cake, prosecco, and cooked options. Attentive concierge and preferential bookings are yours for à la carte dining, as well as for excursions and spa bookings.
Family villas include everything you should need to take care of your loved ones, from the welcoming gift, to snack boxes, strollers, changing and bathing facilities, and cots, plus a children’s farewell gift when you leave. Wellness villas put their ample 125m squared space to good use, with a well-appointed, private wellness area, including a Finnish sauna, Technogym treadmill and oversized bathtub.
The water sports in the bay are exciting and diverse enough for every family member. While the large spa offers Anna Semonin products for luxury treatments in a beautifully relaxing environment and indoor pool.
The town of Agios Nikolaos is very close. Daios Cove is 20 minutes away from Elounda and less than an hour’s transfer from Heraklion International Airport.
