A stone’s throw from the Venetian castle on the UNESCO protected islet of Spinalonga, this all-suite and villa property sits amid verdant amphitheatre gardens and olive groves, its attractive domed structures blending harmoniously with the surroundings. A winter 2017 renovation will see the Domes Private Residences transformed, which along with the Domes Luxury Residences and the exceptional Domes Luxury Villas, will form the resort’s ‘Haute Living Selection’ offering à la carte dine around and enhanced VIP services as well as boasting heated private pools and ample space to relax.
Exceptional culinary choices include Blend Italian Fusion Restaurant, award-winning Greek seafood at Topos 1910, poolside dining at Yaosai Asian Restaurant and multicultural cuisine at Tholos. An adults-only seawater pool proffers scintillating sea views and the private Blue Flag beach is the only naturally sandy one in Elounda. Close to the kids’ crèche and teenagers’ club, family activities are focussed around Domes Family Plaza where the family pool complex comprises two freshwater pools – one heated - and children’s plunge pool with cooling fountains. Get around the resort courtesy of a complimentary electric golf car chauffeur service.

With its enviable location and the many activities on offer, there is something at Domes of Elounda for all the family. Grandparents may enjoy a day trip to the Minoan ruins at Knossos or a wine tasting class in one of the gourmet restaurants. Mother and daughter can relax in Soma Spa, leaving father and son free to explore the countryside mountain biking or challenging each other in a tennis match.
Just a ten-minute walk from Domes of Elounda lies the charming fishing village of Plaka. Head here for some of the freshest seafood you will find on the island - try the grilled octopus in one of the traditional tavernas, you won't regret it. Jump on one of the hotel's boats with Domes of Elounda's Alex and head out to sea in search of deserted coves and isolated beaches - the water is spectacularly clear and ideal for snorkeling.
Domes of Elounda has established itself as one of the island's gastronomic centres, renowned for its Anthos restaurant and versatile wines. There is also a gourmet festival during the season where a team of world-class chefs create tantalising menus celebrating island produce.
