Crete / Domes of Elounda, Autograph Collection

Making its mark pairing rustic tradition with experimental modern design, this hillside village resort boasts panoramic views across the Mediterranean and luxuriously languid villa living.

However with its private beach, pop-up boutiques, sumptuous suites and verdantly vibrant hub of art, gastronomy, fashion and entertainment, Domes of Elounda isn’t just another hotel. It’s all the best parts of Cretan life melded together to create something that’s modern in design yet distinctly Greek.

A sense of place

Scattered among amphitheatre gardens and olive tree groves, Domes’ collection of suites and villas sprawl out merely a stone’s throw from UNESCO protected islet Spinalonga. Home to a Venetian castle and accessed only by exclusive tours around the narrow abandoned streets, its proximity to the resort means easy evenings admiring its beauty while everyone else on Crete vies for the best sunset spot.

In pursuit of…

…trendy Grecian village living. It’s no small feat, incorporating all the trappings of modern luxury into ancient landscapes. Domes’ version of Grecian life is best experienced on a twilight stroll through The Core. An urban hub where paths, lined with art installations of reimagined statues of Greek monsters, pop-up galleries and open-air performances, end at authentic food trucks where dinner is a gastronomical journey designed to challenge concepts of traditional flavours.

"Scattered among amphitheatre gardens and olive tree groves; it’s no small feat, incorporating all the trappings of modern luxury into ancient landscapes."


Beyond family-friendly

Not to be mistaken as just a spot for adults, The Core is also a hive of child-approved entertainment where daily activities at the kids’ club nurture inquisitiveness and popcorn-punctured evenings at an alfresco cinema provide full-family amusements. You’ll find most others tucked away in hillside villas where private terraces and pools make the perfect fly-and-flop base.

On location

Perched in the birthplace of modern practices, Domes of Elounda’s spa – a maze of dark rooms speckled with mosaic tiles in blacks and golds – is a regal homage to its heritage. Expert masseurs pass along hallways between muscle-melting massage appointments, while satiated guests slide into relaxation chairs, unable and unwilling to do more than gaze across the Mediterranean from the floor-to-ceiling windows.

Wake up here

As an all-suite all-villa resort it comes as no surprise that rooms here aren’t lacking in space, comforts or privacy (absolutely none are overlooked). Venture up to the private villas and residences however and discover a whole new standard of Cretan living in the form of ‘Haute Living Selection’. These honey-hued homes look out across the Elounda Gulf from private pools and benefit from enhanced VIP services – including on-request dedicated butler service and pre-booked sun loungers on the beach.

A Carrier curation

A study in teak, pine and stainless steel, Domes’ take on the traditional caïque or kaiki fishing boats marries old customs with new design in a way that feels completely natural. Beloved by the stars and home to the best vantage point of Spinalonga, a day spent on board involves cruising around the island and Mirabello Gulf before dropping anchor in Kolokytha to swim around the sunken city of Elounda.
