Full accommodation information

Here you'll discover a fantastic property situated in the picturesque location of Daios Cove.

Set on a hillside overlooking its private tranquil bay and sandy beach on the north-east coast of Crete, the resort provides guests with a unique example of the charm of the traditional villages found throughout the islands of Greece alongside superb accommodation staggered across the hillside to showcase the amazing sea views, something Ahmed Ali was blown away by.

The villas are exceptionally located for enjoying the bay views and all have a private seawater pool. Deluxe Sea View Rooms are a great choice, enjoying a generous balcony, perfect for taking in their sea vistas and with their open living room area giving a truly spacious feel. The crème de la crème is The Mansion; an epic private villa set in a secluded spot on the hillside with an infinity pool that melts into the horizon. Immerse yourself in the cooling waters of the resort’s impressive infinity pool or take to the adults-only pool to soak up the glorious Grecian sunshine in peace.

And speaking of the spa, the truly exceptional GOCO ‘Spa Daios Cove’ is a vast space of private treatment rooms, cutting-edge therapies, two indoor pools and a Finnish sauna.

In a heartening gesture, Daios Cove has become a natural habitat for local species of birds and flowers, nurturing biodiversity within its tranquil borders.
