Capturing breath-taking scenery and ultimate privacy
Located in its own private cove and nestled nature, Daios Cove is the perfect five-star getaway for travellers wishing to seek luxurious accommodation in Crete. This five-star resort offers direct sea views and entry to its own private beach, inviting guests to fully unwind while taking advantage of the heated infinity pool, huge spa, watersports, tennis courts and, of course, 24-hour support from the wonderful staff that work there.

Culinary delights
Visitors to Daios Cove can expect a wealth of variety on their menus. Fresh seafood is on offer at each of the six restaurants, all of which serve a selection of Cretan classics. The Pangea Restaurant serves up dishes from around the world including delectable vegetarian and vegan options. The Ocean Restaurant delivers a sophisticated and modern twist on Mediterranean dishes carefully thought out by its head chef, the winner of Greece's legendary Golden Chef Hat award. New in 2018 was The Beach House, tucked away on one of the most private coves on the island, which serves up a range of Mediterranean and Asian fusion dishes in a perfect al fresco setting. This year, guests can enjoy the delights of the exclusive Residents' Club, a premium all-inclusive experience, when staying in a suite or villa.

Sleep tight, dream big
There's a room for everyone at The Cove. From couples to families large and small — a selection of rooms, suites and villas await. All with or without their own private pool, inclusive of open plan living, marble lined bathrooms with bathtubs and shower cabins. Every detail has been chosen to ensure guests have the most relaxing stay and feel in a home away from home.

Laid-back leisure
Daios Cove holds a world of pure relaxation and tranquillity at its GOCO Spa, a place where health and active enjoyable leisure come together. Visitors can get into the Cretan mood with a signature treatment or join one of the spa's fitness sessions, or simply relax and unwind in the wet spa area.
