Additional Information

Crete island
Also known as the cradle of Western Civilisation, the island of Crete overflows with history, tradition and culture, a region blessed with abundant virtues and natural wonders. The centre of the Minoan civilisation, Crete is well known for its unspoiled beaches, its exceptional cuisine and authentic heritage; and for its fortresses, gorges and mountains and folklore tradition with its distinctive Mantinades poems and Pentozali dances. 

Daios Cove 5-star luxury hotel in Crete welcomes travellers to the largest island in all of Greece and the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean and makes the most of their stay in Vathi with tailor-made excursions, sightseeing tours and sailing trips to the island’s most renowned attractions and concealed treasures. Let Daios Cove beach resort in Agios Nikolaos lead you through the paths of history, introduce you to the Cretan way of living and show you the island’s unique heritage, fascinating secrets, enchanting nature and vibrant night-life.

Daios Cove’s rooms and luxury suites in Agios Nikolaos redefine the concept of luxury island living. All delight in the openness of the sunlit natural landscape and boast awe-inspiring views of our private bay. Featuring an amazing range of luxury rooms and suites, all designed by the architectural firm 3SK Stylianidis, Daios Cove welcomes you to a haven of relaxation and tranquillity.  
The rooms and suites have been designed with natural materials — including wood and stone for all large surfaces as well as details — elegantly emphasizing the consistency of Daios' original architectural aim: to perfectly integrate with its natural surroundings. Many have their own seawater pools while the open plan designs allow for a flow of sunlight, air and energy and are all equipped with the latest technology, providing you with all the luxuries of a 5-star hotel.

Stunning Private Villas
Daios Cove’s lifestyle luxury villas in Crete offer exquisite views of the Mediterranean Sea and the elegant stone architecture of the Daios Cove Resort.

Truly spectacular!
With wooden flooring, elegant furnishings, amazing design and wonderful living spaces, these enchanting villas have been designed to astonish and delight.  
Make use of the array of the Residents’ Club services, exclusive to villa guests. Furthermore, set off for adventurous excursions, as the resort is perfectly located near some of the most amazing attractions in Crete and in close proximity to the cosmopolitan town of Agios Nikolaos.
Combining abundant space with state-of-the-art facilities and an eye for cool, contemporary design, each villa offers the most unique, intimate and ultra-comfortable luxury accommodation in Crete.

Relax at our exclusive sandy beach, where sun beds, umbrellas, a towel service and beach bar are available so you can enjoy a day by the sea while tasting delicious cocktails and snacks. Alternatively, dive into our infinity heated sea water swimming pool with amazing views of the private cove, part of which is reserved for children. There are also two sea water indoor pools in our state-of-the-art Spa for those looking for the perfect way to wind down.

Ask any parent. Enjoying a holiday is so much easier if the kids are having supervised fun in a safe, structured environment. That’s why childcare is such an important part of the Daios family holiday experience: mum and dad can escape for a little bit of ‘us’ time, secure in the knowledge that their children are being looked after by a dedicated team of childcare specialists.
Babies and toddlers are supervised in the Crèche Club by UK childcare experts Worldwide Kids Co, with qualified nursery staff meeting UK standards and regulations. Meanwhile, older kids can check in for fun at the well-equipped Children’s Club where friendly, highly trained multilingual staff will make them feel at home and provide games and activities. Daios is geared up for families, with a child-friendly beach, pool games and babysitting services — so safe and secure fun is child’s play.

What to do first? At Daios Cove there’s an endless supply of top-class sporting activities to amuse guests of every age, from water-skiing, pedalos, canoeing and scuba diving to tennis, fitness training, yoga and pilates. 

There’s also a full range of entertainment available, including tailor-made excursions to the most famous places on the island, and in-resort wine-tasting sessions. 
Plus, when the hot sun goes down, there’s a cool programme of DJ nights, dancing and live events, with guest artists playing latin, funk, soul, jazz, traditional Mediterranean and Cretan music under the stars. Wet or dry, Daios Cove offers the opportunity to blend familiar favourite activities with fascinating and exciting new experiences.
Water sports centre

Scuba diving
Both novices and veteran divers can experience an unforgettable undersea adventure at Daios Cove. Our diving centre features approved coaching from trained PADI diving professionals for all levels, from beginners through to expert. Underwater excursions, including a visit to a shipwreck, are also available.

Tennis courts
Whatever their level — be they serious tennis pros or just-for-fun players — tennis fans will love our two courts with artificial grass surfaces. These are floodlit, too, so games don’t have to be played in the heat of the afternoon sun.
NOTICE: Tennis equipment and floodlit courts are available at extra charge 

Fitness, Yoga & Pilates
Guests can work up a sweat in our state-of-the-art fitness studio, equipped by Technogym training equipment, with personal trainers on hand to make sure they get the most from their exercise sessions.

Create a bespoke excursion to one of the many must-see locations in Crete; or book a cookery lesson or enjoy a wine-tasting session.
