Nestled on a hillside overlooking the crystal waters of an exclusive private bay -drawing inspiration from the Cretan terroir, the rich natural environment granting unique traits to the flora of Crete- overlooking a unique land and seascape for an unsurpassed holiday destination.
Location: Close to the region’s winding coast road, Daios Cove resort sits in a natural amphitheatre that descends in stages to a private sandy beach.
Design: Linked by a labyrinth of tunnels and corridors, the complex’s five levels are served by a funicular, which trundles guests between lobby, spa, restaurants and the resort’s heated outdoor pool.
This is a stylish and chic resort with a carefully crafted elegance with designer finishing touches. The architecture is attractive and the whole resort is sculpted out of the hillside rock, with each and every stone handcrafted and reclaimed in the traditional Cretan form. The effect is a seamless blending into the very beautiful and natural surroundings that this resort benefits from. The lush landscaped gardens provide a stunning backdrop and you feel instantly relaxed and soothed by the sheer beauty of the place. The resort works hard to protect and conserve the natural surroundings and invests heavily in conservation initiatives and it shows.
Villas: The rooms are impressive, spacious and equipped with all the designer furnishings, state of the art tech and space that you could possibly wish for. Each room has a private balcony with panoramic jaw dropping views of the bay. We stayed in a one bedroom villa with private pool and felt right at home immediately. It’s hard not to with the finest Egyptian linen, super king size bed, your own pillow menu and 24 hour room service on tap.
Food: Overlooking Vathi Bay, Ocean restaurant’s sophisticated Mediterranean cuisine is one of a kind! The emphasis in all of the restaurants here is on sourcing the best, local quality ingredients
Concierge: If you want to venture out, the resort can arrange tailor-made excursions, sightseeing tours and sailing trips to the island’s most renowned attractions and concealed treasures.
Spa: The glamorous spa has bright blue ceilings, sleek wooden furniture and a tempting spa menu whose treatments feature salt crystals, essential oils, fruit extracts and ‘pearl essence’. There’s an indoor saltwater infinity pool with sea views, a second pool with hydro jets, a Finnish sauna, chromotherapy showers, a hairdresser’s and a beauty studio; both spa pools are adults-only.
Facilities: The sporting options vary from endless water activities like water skiing, pedals, canoeing, scuba diving to pilates, yoga and fitness classes on tap. So you can be as active or as inactive as you like.
Highlight: the exceptonal service and the kindness of the staff that is more than willing to help you in all aspects.
