Upgrade your Mediterranean escape with Domes Resorts
For a dreamy Mediterranean retreat with an added dose of opulence, Domes Resorts is top of our radar
Luxury is the name of the game when it comes to Domes Resorts, a collection of standout first-class properties in Corfu and Crete. From its dazzling locations on Greece’s most beautiful islands to its bespoke experiences available to all its guests, Domes Resorts is an expert in providing one-of-a-kind stays. And, with the opening of Domes of Corfu, the latest boho-chic offering in the brand’s roster, there’s now even more to get excited about.
Domes Resorts knows a thing or two about stellar service, drawing on longstanding traditions of Greek hospitality. For an ultra-luxe upgrade, opt for the Haute Living Selection – the brand’s expertly curated VIP package. Every little detail is pre-planned, from sun-lounger reservations to dedicated butler services, so you won’t have to lift a finger. For those with a taste for adventure, each location plays host to countless extraordinary experiences that will make your stay all the more memorable. Foodies will delight in the culinary expeditions on offer at the Crete properties, from exclusive olive oil tasting trips at Domes Miramare’s very own centurian olive grove to Domes Noruz Chania’s expert brewery tour and beer tasting sessions. Meanwhile, couples can opt for a relaxing sunset beach picnic (complete with private violin concert) or get hands-on with a private artisanal pottery workshop.
Each escape is set in a unique Grecian location with a rich local history. Ionian seascapes, powdery white sands and cypress-covered cliffs make for a spectacular backdrop to the brand’s latest opening, Domes of Corfu. The only luxury resort to occupy Corfu’s ever-popular Glyfada beach, it sits perfectly in sync with its surroundings, being built from natural materials with a soothing architectural style that’s ideal for relaxing. Head to the east coast and you’ll find Domes Miramare, the adults-only resort that’s redefining luxury in Corfu; take a spin on Miramaretta (the hotel’s private yacht) for a deluxe trip into the cobbled Old Town.
Among the collection’s Cretan properties is the multi-award-winning Domes of Elounda, set on its own private beach with panoramic views of the historic island of Spinalonga. If antiquity and culture make your holiday, check out the Chania resorts, as the city is renowned for its ancient roots as much as its vibrant spirit and shimmering seascapes. Take a stroll along the Venetian harbour or admire the characterful architecture from one of the city’s bustling terrace bars.
One thing’s for sure – a stay at any of these luxury resorts is sure to leave you feeling rested and restored. Reach new levels of bliss at the state-of-the-art Soma Spa at Domes of Elounda, where floor-to-ceiling windows reveal vistas of the glittering Aegean Sea. Listen to calming soundscapes during a soothing full-body massage or bespoke treatment performed by one of the spa’s expert therapists. Enjoying traditional methods harking back to Minoan Crete, relax and indulge in one of the opulent mosaic-embellished treatment rooms, or book a private spa experience in the comfort of your own villa or suite. Each resort has a plethora of wellness activities to indulge in, too. Yogis can get their fix under the bright blue Grecian skies with the guidance of expert instructors, while adrenaline junkies can sign up for exclusive watersports adventures at the new Domes of Corfu, or make use of the Core, the onsite activity and leisure hub – just ask the staff for more information on arrival.
