Visit Daios Cove Luxury Resort for a beach holiday in Crete

by Staff

The ancient Palace of Knossos, home of the fabled Minotaur’s labyrinth, is an easy excursion from Daios Cove as are the atmospheric ruins on the uninhabited island of Spinalonga, best visited on a boat trip. For a holiday full of adventure on the rugged northeastern coast of Crete, there’s no doubt Daios Cove is the perfect base – and one that’s also set up for those simply seeking an indulgent beach escape. 

Dotted around the amphitheatre- shaped site, the chic rooms and villas – as well as an appealing variety of restaurants and bars – sit on different levels, accessible by electric buggy or the funicular. 

New for 2024 are the Collection at the Cove suites, where ethereal aesthetics infuse every moment with a sense of mindful relaxation. 

Sand, sea and serenity: head to the private beach for a spot of sunbathing or scuba diving

Days fill themselves; you can scoot down to the sandy beach, go scuba diving or water-skiing, or watch children frolic in the shallow sea. You can play tennis or swim to the rim of the heated saltwater infinity pool, and feel your stress dissolve as you gaze out over the timeless panorama towards the Aegean Sea. For more holistic wellness rituals, the new KEPOS by Goco spa welcomes new arrivals to a sanctuary equipped with a vitality pool, thermal bathing suite, mind and body studio, gym and rooms for top-to-toe treatments. 

Health is on the menu, too. From breakfast at Pangea to a sundowner followed by beef souvlaki with herb salad at The Beach House, or sea bream carpaccio at the elegant Rho restaurant, the chefs celebrate local produce and Greek heritage cuisine. Top tip: join the Residents’ Club all-inclusive privilege scheme and you can enjoy à la carte dining in all six restaurants, a wine list with more than 250 different wines and champagnes included in the Club package, and unlimited room service. 

Breakfast with a view: start your days off with a delicious meal and the sight of the sea

When the sun goes down, ambient lighting comes up for DJ nights, dance and live funk, jazz and traditional Cretan music under the stars. There’s no more fitting way to toast the end of another sun-burnished day than with a nightcap in the rooftop Crystal Box cocktail bar. It’s the boutique service that draws guests back to Daios Cove year after year. Personal touches include a pillow menu and a choice of fragrance for your room ambience.
