Domes Resorts, renowned for its five luxury resorts on the Greek islands of Corfu and Crete, is delighted to announce the opening of a new wing of villas and suites at its sought-after Domes of Elounda, Autograph Collection property.
The collection of 40 new Core Residences and Core Open Plan Suites offer the ultimate privacy of a villa holiday, whilst also allowing guests to enjoy the five-starred service, amenities, and luxury hospitality Domes of Elounda has to offer.
Complete with private pools, Jacuzzis, and fully equipped kitchen and dining areas, the new Core Residences are perfectly equipped for longer staying guests. Designed for seamless indoor-outdoor living, the interiors have been curated by designer Olivia Siskou and furnished using natural materials including wooden ceiling fans, fine linen bathrobes, and marble bathrooms alongside modern artwork for a stylish feel.
The new wing was designed by K-Studio architects to mimic the feeling of a traditional Cretan village with the primary goal of preserving the natural environment. The villas have been carefully designed to be congruous with their surroundings, emerging from the landscape and creating luxury private oases for guests. An architectural masterpiece of low-rise residences and suites, they were built using the same Cretan stone that was excavated during construction next to the vibrant, open-air Core Agora complex in the center of Domes of Elounda, Autograph Collection.
Located near the village of Plaka in Crete, Domes of Elounda, Autograph Collection is perfectly positioned with sea views over the Gulf of Mirabello and is the place where Cretan hospitality meets modern-day luxury. The family-friendly hotel is the ultimate spot for relaxation and rejuvenation boasting five pools, two of which are adult friendly, multiple restaurants spanning Asian fusion to traditional Greek cuisine, and an award-winning spa and wellness center. For the more adventurous types, guests can try a roster of exciting activities, from boat trips around the island of Spinalonga to Minoan cooking courses, as well as various workshops and exhibitions at Core Agora, a multi-functional urban space where art, gastronomy, wellness, fashion, and entertainment all come together.
“The opening of our new private villas and suites couldn’t have come at a better time” explains George P Spanos, CEO of Domes Resorts, “what we have seen in the last 18 months is that guests are now looking for added elements of privacy during their stay, yet they still want to feel connected to others and enjoy the facilities and amenities of a hotel.”
