By National Geographic Traveller The Collection

Easily accessible from Heraklion International Airport (46 miles) — and a short drive from the sightseeing centres of Aghios Nikolaos (10 minutes away) and Elounda village (20 minutes away) — Daios Cove is nestled within its own private cove and boasts a glorious sandy beach on the Aegean Sea. At the heart of the five-star resort is a heated infinity pool with stunning views across the sea — guests can sit back and relax on one of the sumptuous sunbeds and soak up the views.

Relaxation is what Daios Cove prides itself on doing best and guests’ wellbeing always comes first. There is access to a 2,500sq m spa with eight private treatment rooms including two facial studios, three body treatment rooms, two double suites and a beauty salon. There is also a wet spa area, a Finnish sauna, a soft sauna, a Mediterranean Bath (a combination of sauna and steam bath) plus Ninfea reaction showers. Experience different types of water pressures and temperatures (rain, storm, hydro massage) to invigorate and soothe the skin, blood pressure and inner body, including the heart and lungs. For a more vigorous massage, head to the Thai massage studio. Floor-to-ceiling windows enclose the indoor pool, with views over the cove towards the azure sea.

If all the relaxation becomes too much, or if guests are looking for something more energetic, the fitness studio houses a range of equipment to get the heart rate pumping, as well as offering daily complimentary yoga or Pilates classes. Personal fitness managers are on hand to put guests through their paces on a one-to-one basis and ensure the programme is tailored to their personal requirements and needs. With two floodlit tennis courts and a water sports jetty on site — where guests can even take a PADI diving certificate — there really is an abundance of activities for everyone. The resort also organises excursions to Crete’s must-see pleasure hotspots, historical sites and archaeological treasures.
