          Set on the secluded Vathi beach in Crete, Daios Cove Resort and Luxury Villas is a truly innovative and cutting edge resort that has been lovingly hand-carved out of the hillside rock. One of the finest 5 star hotels close to the traditional town of Aghios Nikolaos, Daios Cove is a style landmark with unique architecture and chic, minimalist interiors.

          Daios Cove is a stunning resort suited in equal parts to both couples and families. For couples there are secluded rooms with private pools and one of the best spa experiences on the island. For families there is the beautifully furnished spacious villa style accommodation, an excellent supervised kids club and a glorious sandy beach.  The rooms at Daios Cove have been designed to take in the breath-taking views of the Mediterranean Sea.

          With three restaurants in which to dine, guests would be hard pressed to choose between the buffet style Pangea serving a variety of international cuisines with theme nights, the Italian-style fine dining Ocean Restaurant or the Greek Taverna serving traditional Cretan specialities.  For those who prefer to dine outside the resort a handful of taverna's can be found within a few minutes drive or there's the charming town of Aghios Nikolaos a 10-minute drive from Daios Cove with its many shops, boutiques, restaurants and bars.

          The Residents’ Club, created for guests staying in Suites and Villas, will elevate your holiday experience.  Suite and villa guests have the exclusive option to enjoy a lavish Premium All Inclusive concept ('Residents Club')  which is available all through the summer season.  However as a huge bonus, for selected dates this is offered on a complimentary basis.
