The luxurious Domes of Elounda Villas and Residences in Greece will feel like an elegant home away from home. These impeccable beachfront properties face the stunning Elounda Gulf and UNESCO-protected Spinalonga island, and the boutique resort’s ‘Haute Living Selection’ comprises a range of private villas and residences, and an exclusive a la carte dining programme.
Dome of Elounda sits on the private, pebbled beach of Plaka, along Crete’s north east coast. It is perched on a hillside overlooking crystalline waters. Take a short boat trip to Spinalonga island itself or explore the traditional town of Plaka which is under a mile’s distance away from the hotel. The upmarket town of Elounda, with its rich cultural heritage, lies under three miles away from the resort. Further along the coast is the picturesque coastal town of Aghios Nikolaos which boasts beautiful Venetian architecture and lively eateries. Reach Heraklion Airport in a 44-mile drive or the renowned historical site of Knossos Palace which is of a similar distance (47 miles).
As with all Haute Living Selection properties, you can enjoy uninterrupted bliss, with a full range of five-star hotel services and amenities, such as a pillow menu. Immerse yourself in a sumptuous, secluded space overlooking a private pool nestled amid lush greenery. The spacious accommodation affords easy access to the expansive family pool, children’s pool, natural sandy beach and deli-mini market. Core Residences offer modern simplicity, with an impressive stonewall exterior that perfectly blends with the Cretan landscape. For enhanced space and style, Domes Luxury Residences are the ideal choice. However, Domes Luxury Villas offer the highest level of accommodation, featuring roomy, extravagant interiors and designer furnishings, in a completely private, detached space – and your own dedicated villa manager.
