5* Crete retreat with a private pool

Daios Cove Luxury Resort & Villas, Greece


You can add flights to this hotel

A five-star stay at a secluded Crete hideaway, with a private pool and sublime views – includes breakfast, dinner and generous resort credit

Gently sloping down the hillside of a secluded cove on Crete's northeastern coast, five-star Daios Cove Luxury Resort & Villas is quite possibly as serene as they come. Overlooking the remarkably clear blue waters, with access to a private sandy beach, a scuba diving centre and (if you happen to have your own chopper) a private helipad, this property's seriously exclusive vibe certainly knows how to impress.

Your bedroom feels more like a private suite, with a furnished terrace and access to your very own individual pool which spills out towards the turquoise sea. Dinner offers a choice between gourmet Mediterranean cuisine, local Greek dishes and an international buffet, while post-dinner options range from a swanky cocktail bar to a toes-in-the-sand beach haunt. Bliss out in the sensational spa or, if you fancy getting active, enjoy a game of tennis on site, plus sailing, diving and more thrilling watersports.
