Daios Cove

Vathi, Ayios Nikolaos, Crete, 72100, Greece

Crashing onto the scene in 2010, this glamorous resort redefined the luxury concept with a mighty wow factor—spread over the sides of Vathi Bay (with a private sandy beach), every room has breathtaking views, and many have private terraces and pools. All rooms are spacious and furnished in a modern, natural, and simple style. Split over many levels, it is a maze of paths and walkways reminiscent of a Greek village; albeit one with a world-class spa, fine-dining options, and a funicular to take you up and down to the beach. Reportedly one of the most expensive hotels ever built in Greece, it is worth every cent.

PROS

  • even the smallest rooms are twice the size of a regular hotel room
  • well-trained and friendly staff
  • design still feels fresh and new

CONS

  • a distance from Ayios Nikolaos and can feel a little isolated
  • food and drink costs are high
  • seemingly hundreds of steps (but funicular to beach helps)
