  • Digital Detox

    Perhaps work has been too demanding of your time lately, or you feel like you’ve been online too much. If you’ve been finding it challenging to log out and slow down, we’ll help you make the best of your summer. If you think you could benefit from a digital detox session, we can prepare a personalised experience for you as part of your digital detox package.

     

    A holistic approach to digital detox means you’ll be inspired to reconnect with nature, relish in the finer things in life and re-center yourself. You’ll be enjoying a mood-enhancing breakfast, experiencing the serenity of a fishing trip… And we have even more surprises in store.

    Take a deep breath and reconnect with what matters at the Domes of Elounda.

  • Boat Trips

    With the mysterious Spinalonga islet beckoning across the azure waters of the bay – and with the seafaring tradition in Crete going back to the very dawn of time – we would be remiss not to offer a boat trip experience. Hop on board the Meraki, named after the Greek ideal of zeal and pride in everything we do, and set sail for an exploratory journey across the glistening turquoise to hidden beaches and coves or the secrets that the UNESCO world heritage island of Spinalonga has to reveal.  Head out to sea for an iconic Mediterranean experience.

  • Kids' Activities

    Our paradisiacal Greek summer retreat takes very good care indeed of its younger guests, with a veritable wealth of activities, experiences and spaces for children – from babies and toddlers to teenagers. Spaces purpose-built for kids, both outdoors and indoors, speak to their spirit of adventure and discovery as they dive into safe plunge pools, explore ancient myths, make new friends from around the world, learn about everything from the universe to recycling and beyond, play on our private sandy beach…

     

    Meanwhile, the open-air eco-playground grants children their wishes for enjoyment, mirth, and action. For sports lovers, active escapades on offer include a climbing wall, skate and BMX park, team games, 5×5 football, tennis academy, and much more as they roam freely and safely in the natural surroundings. All this takes place under the watchful eye and expert consultation of Montessori-following, Ofsted-approved multilingual experts. There are even designated spaces for parents to sit back and watch the eyes of their little ones light up with excitement with the sheer range of things to do, learn and play with.

    Treat your children to the best summer of their lives.

  • Cinema Nights

    For Greeks and loyal visitors, nothing says “Greek family summer” quite like sitting back under the starry sky and enjoying a kid’s movie at an open-air cinema. Now, you can enjoy this quintessential experience with your little ones just a few steps from your villa or suite. Cinema nights at Domes of Elounda come courtesy of CORE and take place in a multifunctional space that’s vibrant and engaging in equal measure, captivating audiences of young ages.

  • Food Festivals & Workshops

    At Domes of Elounda, our epicurean instincts embrace the local and look to the global, so we have prepared a diverse series of gourmet events, festivals and workshops to inform and delight in equal measure. Gourmands of all ages, expect star-studded international chefs, exquisite Cretan wine, secret recipes brought to light and much more at our regular culinary events. Speak to our team to arrange your bespoke culinary experience, and get ready for a journey into explosive flavors.

  • BBQ Night

    Follow the unmistakable smell of the charcoal grill to our open-air barbeque evenings, where the meat is fresh, the music and dance Cretan, and the people cheerful and festive. Mouth-watering cuts of local meat are grilled on an open fire, inviting everyone to join in and become part of one happy family. Such is the popularity of our BBQ evenings that we’ve added a new flavor to the rotation: fish barbeques of freshly caught, local fish and seafood enjoyed alfresco, in true Cretan tradition.

  • Traditional Pastry Cooking

    Roll up your sleeves: this bespoke culinary experience will see you not just learn about the veritable art of making genuine Cretan pies but also roll some dough and bake your own.

    Travel with us to the traditional village of Kritsa to immerse ourselves in one of the most authentic epicurean traditions of Crete: Cretan housewives generously share their knowledge in the making of savory and sweet pies and pastries, such as kalitsounia and wild herb pie – all made from the purest ingredients, including locally sourced vegetables, cheese and dairy (as well as some outstanding Cretan olive oil, of course). Bite-sized or cut into large pieces, these small culinary miracles will soon rank among the stand-out foodie experiences of your summer.

  • Olive Oil Tasting

    The tradition of olive oil on Crete is so ancient that there are olive groves dotted around the island so old, they have been officially declared natural and historic monuments. From bright salads to gorgeous pies and pastries, Olive oil is at the very heart of Cretan and Mediterranean cuisine – and for good reason too, thanks to its extraordinary antioxidant and nutritional properties.

    But it’s Crete itself that produces what is perhaps the best olive oil in the world, an extra-virgin amber liquid distilled using traditional methods that locals compare to liquid gold. Whether you’re already an aficionado of olive oil or just curious, a curated olive oil tasting will walk you through the range of varieties of olives and olive oil this blessed land produces. You’ll be tasting the purest fruit of Crete, leaving with newfound knowledge and understanding of what olive oil can do for your health and your cooking.
