Daios Cove Luxury Resort & Villas is perfect for beach-lovers as it is located on the seafront and overlooks its own private beach – just a ten-minute drive from the heart of Aghios Nikolaos.  Reminiscent of a Cretan village, the resort is a collection of buildings spread out along a hillside, yet is contemporary and luxurious.

On arrival you’ll be immediately impressed by the spectacular views.  On either side of the bay, all the luxurious Daios Cove villas and suites enjoy these views of the sea and the pretty cove below. Every room type has been cleverly designed incorporating glass with local stone to compliment the surrounding natural environment of rock, sea and space.

If guests are not relaxing by their own private pool, there is an outdoor infinity pool and adjacent children’s pool, two tennis courts, a fitness centre and Spa with an indoor pool. Access to the hotel areas and guest rooms is by the regular club car shuttle service or the funicular followed by higgledy, piggledy pathways and steps for access to the hotel's private sandy beach.

Daios Cove has three restaurants, all of which have a children’s menu. To experience a true taste of Crete, the Greek Taverna at the water's edge, serves local specialities and fresh fish and is open from midday to midnight. For chic modern Italian cuisine, with a fun fresh fusion, the Ocean restaurant is a popular choice. Pangea serves a variety of international cuisine with theme nights.

The traditional Cretan fishing village of Plaka, opposite the island of Spinalonga, with its authentic tavernas and local artisan shops is well worth a visit. Slightly closer are the bustling shops, bars and restaurants around the marina of Agios Nikolaos.

Daios Cove is a firm favourite for families wanting a relaxing holiday, versatile accommodation and the benefit of an excellent children's club from 4 months - 13 years.  The kids will enjoy fun filled days with a huge variety of exciting activities and games to ensure your children have an amazing holiday whatever their age.
