BFB's Overview

*** Free Dine Around Half Board For 2019 Stays of 5+ nights***

The glamorous new (2014) luxury residences at Domes of Elounda are the icing on the cake at this superb all-suite and villa boutique hotel, which is a favourite of ours thanks to its combination of its stunning setting, stylish accommodation, friendly service, good food, useful baby gear and facilities including a kids club, creche, teen games room, bars, restaurants and in-suite/villa dining options.


As you'd expect, this level of attention to detail and five-star facilities rarely comes cheap but it can be surprisingly good value with spacious entry level suites, complete with private balcony hot tubs, priced from just €200 per night. Whilst those who are feeling decadent can chose from a fabulous array of private residences each with luxurious fixtures and fittings and spectacular panoramic views from their private infinity pools priced from €360 to €3500 per night. The latter being a 'Royal Spa Villa' which boasts its own private mini spa complete with treatment room, sauna, jacuzzi etc. plus outdoor infinity pool and hot tub.

Whichever type of accommodation is chosen, all feel exceptionally luxurious with Coco-mat mattresses, pillow menus, sophisticated toiletries, two person jacuzzi baths and private hot tubs or pools as standard. Each suite also benefits from individually designed interiors by Olyvia Siskou, who has used Designers Guild fabrics, hand-carved wooden furniture and local artwork to give them a light, yet elegant feel, aided by the floor to ceiling windows that offer lovely views over the island of Spinalonga and its Venetian fortress.

The hotel's staff are warm and friendly and frequently seen zipping along in golf buggies transporting guests from their suites and villas to the hotel's stretch of sandy beach, bars and restaurants. The British run creche and kids club is well equipped, carefully maintained and well staffed by trained carers who fast become favourites with mini guests, allowing parents guilt-free time to lounge on a cushioned sunbed and read a book, or enjoy a drink or two in one of the hotel's two bars. Babysitting is also available and a romantic dinner on the pier restaurant makes for a very welcome injection of romance and glamour for parents of little ones.
Accommodation Overview - 3-Bedroom Luxury Residence :

This sophisticated cluster of 20 super-stylish and very glamorous 'luxury residences' are new for summer 2014 and come in 2, 3 or 4-bedroom formations, each with private heated pools and a dedicated concierge. They boast exclusive access to a communal pool area with separate kids pool, a restaurant, bar and mini market/deli only for luxury residence guests, as well as use of all the resorts communal facilities including a choice of restaurants, bars, spa, communal pools, kids club and creche.
The three bedroom residences offer spacious accommodation with their own large swimming pool (with whirlpool and waterfall). The poolside decks have sun loungers whilst the verandahs boast both dining and lounging zones with a pergola-shaded dining table and four outdoor sofas. Inside, the accommodation is single storey (ideal with little ones) and boasts two large master suites with super-king double beds topped by 'Coco-Mat' matress, 40" TVs, sumptuous marble bathrooms with free-standing tubs and rainfall showers (over), and patio doors leading to a lounging terrace. The third bedroom offers twin/super king double beds (convertible), the same TV and marble bathrooms. There's an elegant lounge, a dining room and a separate open-plan kitchen area equipped with hob, dishwasher, oven, refrigerator, washing machine, toaster, microwave, kettle, filter coffee maker and juicer. The residences come with air conditioning, twice-daily maid service, free use of tennis courts and beach sunbeds and complimentary Wi-Fi. Baby gear available on request includes cots, highchairs, baby baths, baby monitors and sterilisers.
Please note: as illustrated by the floor plan shown in the photo gallery on this page, 3-bed luxury residences are actually adjoining 2-bed residences but with the living area internal wall and end part of pool wall removed when in 3 or 4-bedroom configuration. Also, second kitchen is removed so that the room becomes a stand-alone dining room, and the lounge is therefore more spacious with additional sofa seating.

A full board supplement available at a reduced cost of 35 euros per adult per day (children under 12 are upgraded free when adults upgrade). This includes complimentary wine, beer, soft drinks & snacks in the 24-hr Haute Living Lounge.

Location Information

The Domes of Elounda nestles on a hillside with spectacular views over the bay of Elounda and the pretty island of Spinalonga. A 10-minute stroll to the left of the resort brings guests to the charming fishing village of Plaka with its string of well respected fish restaurants, traditional tavernas and elegant craft shops, whilst a right turn and a 15-minute walk will take guests to the harbour resort of Elounda with its many restaurants shops and bars. The road to both locations does not have pavements, so guests often feel more secure using taxis, which can be arranged via the concierge.

A short drive (5-10mins) away is the larger town of Aghia Nikoloas, with its inland lake surround by bistros and, a little further afield is the "Aqua Splash" waterpark. The mysterious, uninhabited island of Spingalonga, the subject of the recent Victoria Hislop bestseller 'The Island', is just across the bay and boat trips depart regularly from the hotel's pier.

Other sites of interest within an hour's drive include the magnificent ruins of the Minoan city and palace of Knossos, which are breathtakingly well preserved and considered to be the second most important historic site in Greece, after the Parthenon in Athens.

  • Hello from sunny Domes of Elounda! Just arrived yesterday and just wanted to say THANKS for suggesting this great place on your website! It lives up to all the promises and more. We are boutique hotel junkies and with a toddler in tow definitely wanted an ideal relaxing but fun place for our small family - without compromising on style and amenities! Not an easy task. September is great, it's active but relaxing-quiet too, not imposing and the many many smiles are sooooo welcome!! The breakfast was a feast for the eyes and palate. Thank you thank you and also happy to report they upgraded us without asking to a bigger room! Also a great credit to the wonderful staff who also arranged a doctor late last night to come this morning for our feverish child. I feel I can let go and just BE on this holiday which is EXACTLY what we needed and longed for. sunny greetingsReview dated 13/09/2012
