Daios Cove Luxury Resort

Crete

OVERVIEW

Set close to the bustling town of Agios Nikolaos, one of Crete’s most picturesque towns, Daios Cove is a family-friendly resort featuring excellent restaurants, a super spa and a sandy beach – unusual for hotels along this part of the coast.

When you hear the words ‘family friendly’ you may think this compromises on style factor, but not so here: it’s all watery turquoise vistas, glass panelling, cubist furniture and ochre stone – all childproofed, of course. It’s close to the coastal road that travels from west to east, so getting around if you’ve got a car is a breeze – you’ll need one to get into Agios Nikolaos, the Minoan ruins of Knossos and Spinalonga, as Daios Cove is quite secluded.

Just like the Minotaur’s lair that’s said to be set on Crete somewhere, the hotel descends down the cliff in a serious of labyrinthine corridors and tunnels and the five levels are easily accessed by a funicular, so you’ll have great views as you swish between lobby, spa, restaurant and pool.
