The Daios Cove Resort is totally luxurious. Without a doubt one of the most acclaimed resorts in the region. Romantic, yet at the same family-friendly.
The Daios Cove Luxury Resort is an ultra-contemporary resort with a selection of hotel rooms, suites and villas. Many with their own private use swimming pools (see note below) overlooking its own cove beach.
Low rise villa style spread over the hillside with views overlooking the secluded bay below. Wonderfully innovative, both in the resort-style and with the seemingly constant subtle enhancements year on year, so it always seems fresh and inviting.
5 miles from the lively and attractive resort of Aghios Nikolaos, and one hour transfer from Heraklion Airport.
Daios Cove holds 290 rooms, suites and villas dotted across the hillside, most with superb views of the bay below.
The design style is bright and modern, in an elegant minimalist manner that still encompasses traditional Cretan touches.
You have a choice of:
Deluxe Rooms –
Junior Suites with an integrated living area and plunge pool.
One and Two Bedroom Suites with a separate living room, mostly with their own swimming pool.
The Villas offer the most luxurious accommodation, with One, Two and Tree bedrooms, and larger private swimming pools.
Please note that the private use pools throughout the resort do not have depth markings so you do need to satisfy yourself on your confidence/capability levels, and be especially vigilant with small children.
- Low key evening entertainment
- Highly acclaimed luxurious spa (adults only) with indoor pool operated by Goco, one of the most acclaimed spa & fitness companies. The entire area has been completely enhanced and expanded.
- Tennis courts
- Water Sports Centre, Diving
- There is an entertainment room for the younger ones
- For the older children, there will be a full range of supervised sporting activities (depending on the season and occupancy)
- A funicular lift will provide easy access to most of the public areas, although as the grounds are extensive you do need to be reasonably mobile as you do have steps linking the facilities
Residence Club – All Villa and Suite guests become members of the Residents Club which gives access to dine around options with a bottle of wine for lunch & dinner, ice cream and soft/ fruit drinks for children, 24-hour room service for main meals, mini bar stocked daily.
The Daios Cove Luxury Resort is a totally modern resort, with an interesting design style that has taken Northern European concepts and rather skillfully blended with the use of local stone and fabrics.
Although the resort does attract families (particularly at school holidays), some of the areas are designed for adult romance, so might not be open to those with smaller children.
The expansive cove beach has typically Cretan coarse sand leading into a sea of incredible colour contrasts, with good swimming and snorkelling whilst motorised sports are arranged at the rim of the bay.
Car Hire – To add to your flexibility we do suggest car hire and ideally this should be booked in advance, especially in the peak season.
