Your Destination

Crete is blessed with year-round sunshine, mild weather, glorious beaches and some of the world's most important archaeological sites – including the ruins of the great Minoan kingdom. Daios Cove Luxury Resort & Villas is just 10 minutes drive from Agios Nikolaos, 20 minutes from Elounda and less than an hour from Heraklion Airport.

Aghios Nikolaos (8km)
A walk around the shops is an enjoyable experience in the closest town to Daios Cove Luxury Resort. With upmarket restaurants, cafes and bars, the town has a stylish and lively feel. Don't miss the beautiful Lake Voulismeni - the legend suggests that Athena and Artemis bathed in its waters.

Kritsa – Kroustas – Lassithi Plateau (50km)
Experience the real Cretan village culture. From many vantage points throughout the villages there are far reaching breathtaking views across the olive groves, that produce delicious award-winning olive oil, down to the coast and up to the rounded Thripti Mountains.

Knossos Palace (72km)
The largest Bronze Age archaeological site on Crete and the ceremonial and political centre of the Minoan civilisation and culture.

Our first glimpse of the resort was sensational. As we approached, it just seemed to pop up out of the rocks, as if the hotel had grown out of the cove or risen out of the sea. It's a very, very clever piece of architecture.
