The history of Daios Cove lies in the story of one yachtsman set adrift in a storm and taking refuge within the cove to see out the bad weather. The protective shape of the bay and his good fortune in managing to find such a haven prompted him to buy the land.
In 2006 he sold his beloved cove to the Daios family who promised to keep his legacy alive and respect the beauty of the rural area. In 2008 they started to design and build a resort that blends in perfectly with the natural surroundings.
The luxury beach resort Daios Cove opened its acclaimed doors in 2010.
What sets this resort apart from the thousands of others in Crete is its symbiosis with the natural environment. Designed and engineered so that the modern architecture wraps around the geological land formations and accentuates the coastal rhythm rather than just ignoring it.
Using locally sourced stones, glass, materials and colour palettes which are native to the island, Daios Cove is truly at one with its surroundings, which is how you’ll feel once you arrive too.
Daios Cove features a stunning range of rooms, suites and villas that have all been designed with meticulous attention to detail using natural materials. In keeping with the nature ethos, many of them also have seawater (private) pools as well as all luxury facilities you come to expect of a hotel of this distinction.
For a seriously luxurious romantic getaway I would recommend the one-bedroom suites with sea view and private pool. These spectacular rooms come with a separate living room and bedroom area which leads straight out to your own private pool with a breath-taking sea views. While away the day in your own room, sunbathing in the privacy of your own terrace and indulging in an occasional dip whenever takes your fancy. It’s the ultimate uninterrupted holiday experience.
