Domes of Elounda
Domes of Elounda is a Marriott Autograph collection hotel in Crete, popular with families seeking luxurious accommodation. With great facilities for kids- including a kids club and teen area – it overlooks a UNESCO protected island and the Venetian castle.
This family-friendly hotel has a wonderful hillside setting with direct access to a sandy beach with crystal clear shallow waters, ideal for quality time and water games for all family members, and offers all the services and facilities you would expect from luxury 5-star accommodation.
There are 118 rooms available for guests in the Domes of Elounda, and they have an art-deco styling with an almost playful touch. The carefully chosen colours make each one seem alive, and the room types vary from suites to luxury residences. With specifically designed family suites and rooms, everyone will feel at home from the moment they arrive.
The hotel is welcoming to families, but also has adults-only areas. This means that the public pools are split between general use and adults- only, depending on the area of the hotel. As you might expect, the Domes of Elounda has bars and restaurants, and a very nice spa. There is a signature Cretan therapy available, and there are also special spa treatments just for kids!
In addition to the facilities mentioned above, there is also a tennis court, a fully-equipped fitness center, an outdoor fitness zone and the Soma Spa facilities with its ELEMIS® premium beauty and wellness products. It would almost be tempting never to leave the resort itself, but Crete has so much to offer! We can arrange tours to see the nearby sights and attractions such as Spinalonga, the Lassithi Plateau and Cave of Zeus, as well as the essential ‘must-see’ places such as Knossos. Contact us for more details about family-friendly tours in Crete.
Situated on the north-east coast of Crete, the Heraklion airport is about an hour’s drive away. Whilst there are many things to see and do nearby, the best way to see the rest of the island is to either take a tour or hire a car. If you would like to talk to us about which option may be best for you, our team is glad to help.
The Domes of Elounda specialises in family-friendly accommodation in Crete, with all the baby equipment, services and amenities to match. The kids club and teen areas ensure that there is always something to do, and the accommodation itself is designed with families in mind. For its young guests up to 4 years of age there is Domes Crèche, and for older children -up to the age of 12- there is Domes Kids Club, with age-appropriate activities on a complimentary basis. All facilities are managed by qualified staff that have been professionally trained by Worldwide Kids (former Worldwide Kids Company) https://www.worldwide-kids.com/. From the all-time favourite playground (with slides, see-saws and swings) to the Teen Room’s option of electronic gaming (Xbox, PS4, PSP, Wii, Guitar Hero), Domes of Elounda has everything for every age, in a safe and secure environment. As with any Marriott Hotel, you can expect the service to be second to none!
