Full accommodation information

Sister to the award-winning Domes of Elounda, this resort is the perfect choice for couples, friends or singles seeking a chilled out atmosphere and chic surrounds.

Part of the inimitable Autograph Collection, there are many unique touches at Domes Noruz, nowhere more so than in the luxury accommodation. Stylish and contemporary interiors feature rainforest showers and private plunge pools or outdoor Jacuzzi baths, as well as state of the art music and visual systems. 

Accommodation is appointed with a contemporary flair, with three distinct room types each offering their own charm. All boast private plunge pools, state-of-the-art sound systems and a host of luxurious extras. The motto of the Autograph Collection is ‘exactly like nothing else’, and this is certainly true of each room category here; Upbeat Retreats, Wellness Loft Suites and Havens offer various amounts of space, but all share a chic, quirky character.

When it comes to mealtimes, fresh innovative Greek fare with international flare is on offer at Topos, a stylish beachfront restaurant. At breakfast times, too, guests are welcomed by obliging staff at Topos, where a pleasing array of fresh fruits, superfoods and cooked breakfast options are available. As the sun sets head to Raw bar for mixology classes, where bartenders can tailor-make cocktails exactly to your preference. This is complemented by delicious sushi and world acknowledged guest DJs providing a chillout vibe. 

Here you can be as active or relaxed as you wish; a resident personal trainer is on hand to assist with your workouts, or you may just like to indulge in a treatment at the serene spa. There’s also the chilled out atmosphere of the main pool and sunset-view bar to enjoy; the perfect setting to laze your days away in the sun on a luxury Greece holiday. A few steps down to the public beach you’ll find sand beneath your feet, inviting waters and reserved sun loungers and umbrellas accompanied by beach service from Domes Noruz staff.
