Go beyond luxury with Domes Resorts
Opulent five-star hotel brand, Domes Resorts, welcomes a new opening to its stunning portfolio. Be the first in line to experience this heavenly slice of Greece
Luxurious, individual, thoughtful and cool are four words that perfectly describe Domes Resorts, the fastest-growing luxury hotel group in Greece. It has a curated portfolio of five first-class properties in Corfu and Crete, including the newest edition, Domes of Corfu, Autograph Collection. Each has its own way of interpreting Domes Resorts’ ethos for a vacation destined to leave a transformative imprint on your personal life story. What’s more, all properties now have the Domes New Normality Protocol in place, meaning you can relax in the knowledge that the highest hygiene standards are being maintained throughout your stay.
A unique escape
What unites all of Domes Resorts’ properties is philoxenia, the ancient Greek tradition of hospitality. That means the guest is at the heart of everything. This is not only immediately apparent in the outstanding service, but also seen in signature bespoke concepts such as a boat ride on the super-cool Miramaretta yacht, and Domes Haute Living Selection, where the higher tiered aspects of each hotel come with private concierge service, pre-booked sun loungers and all food and beverage consumed within the lounge premises are inclusive in the accommodation rate. Not to mention Domes’ partnership with luxury books publisher Assouline, with whom they’ve created dedicated reading lounges in all of the Domes’ properties – certainly several steps up from your average hotel book swap.
The good life
But then Domes is far from average in every way and the latest Domes Resort opening - Domes of Corfu - is set to blow holidaymakers’ minds. Opening in June 2021 in the west of the Ionian isle, Domes of Corfu is a haven surrounded by rolling olive groves on one side and the turquoise waters of the Ionian Sea on the other. This beachfront idyll is just a 25-minute drive from charming Corfu Town, and the same distance again from the airport.
Distinctive design is in evidence at Domes of Corfu, which features a bohemian luxe feel throughout. Bedrooms and suites are decorated in warm earthy tones with contemporary art adorning the walls – and all rooms come with a private verandah or patio. The hotel has a cool, modern spirit that makes the most of its surroundings, with striking Greek-influenced architecture and wood, stone and metal materials.
Three restaurants offer excellent cuisine, from contemporary takes on comfort food classics to edgier creations for those who like to experiment at dinner time, while special wine tasting events and gastronomic workshops are also on offer. Sunseekers will rejoice at the generous pools (a mix of adult only and family friendly, keeping everyone happy) and glorious Glyfada Beach, with its inviting shallow waters. Domes of Corfu also offers front-row seats for the most glorious sunsets –best enjoyed with a cocktail or mocktail in hand.
It’s all in the details
Catering for couples, families, friends and solo travellers, Domes Resort has a creche, kids’ club and tween & teens club, with exciting activities for children of all ages and personalities. Or how about activities that all of the family can take part in? Guests at Domes Resorts can horse ride, hike and embark on water sports activities together. Fancy something a bit different? Try The Core, another stand-out signature of Domes Resorts. Standing for ‘conjunction of refined experiences’, The Core is an open-air area with luxury street food stalls and shopping outlets, as well as a wellness centre that’s home to a spa, beauty salon and gym. A curated programme of kids’ activities at The Core includes open-air movie nights, outdoor camping in teepees and bonfire beach parties, while workshops, masterclasses and interactive exhibitions and installations are on offer for the adults.
As if all this wasn’t enough, Domes of Corfu is also home to brand-new Domes concept the Stivos Hybrid Activity and Leisure Park, with utility scooters, strolling pathways, yoga corners and even picnic meadows. Meanwhile, the AEERE wellness concept has cardio and TRX programmes, fusion fitness, body water activities, personal training and consultation. Looking to add to your art collection? Loudos Fine Art & Auctions specialises in contemporary Greek and international art and has curated a capsule collection for Domes Resorts, including special discount codes for guests.
For a break that can be as relaxed or as high-octane as you want it to be, where the guest is the centre of attention and the surroundings will win you serious bragging rights on social media, Domes of Corfu is the only choice.
