Domes of Elounda
An Autograph Collection Hotel
What it is
An all-suite and villa retreat with castle views, four buzzing restaurants, a sumptuous domed spa, four pools, and a covetable all-inclusive option.
What it isn't
Just for grown-ups. Kiddos are pampered here, too, through the Kiepos for Kids program, where they’ll learn about sustainability in the outdoor play area. Bonus: an outdoor children’s pool.
What we think
Full disclosure: each and every room at Domes of Elounda is a delight. You can’t go wrong. Even the “starter” option, the 366 square foot Core Open Plan room, feels palatial, with its floor to ceiling glass walls, outdoor jacuzzi, marble lined bathroom, and V.I.P. service options—including grocery shopping and turndown. We particularly love the 495 square foot Core 1 Bedroom Residence, which has a kitchenette and an 839 square foot private outdoor garden area complete with a pool. While you’re here, be sure to spend plenty of time at CORE—the hotel’s de facto outdoor marketplace and dining hall, where activities abound, all overlooking the sea.
You're here because
The Haute Living option is like a hotel within a hotel, with extra indulging options (including a private pool, separate concierge, Haute Living Room, ultra high-end bathroom amenities and pillow menus, and more).
You’ve eaten at some of the most beautiful restaurants on earth, and yet there’s something about Topos—where your table is set on an actual wooden pier that juts into the sea—that feels like another level of luxury. You can’t help but seas the day.
