Relaxing on a lofty rise overlooking the shimmering Mediterranean Sea just a short distance from Chania, Crete’s most ancient city, is Domes Zeen Chania, a Luxury Collection Resort – a stunning hideaway specially designed for the modern family.
Inspired by the Greek concept of Ef Zeen – ‘the art of living well’ – Domes Zeen Chania is a safe haven in which to relax, revive, forge new memories and admire characterful Cretan traditions. Against a dramatic backdrop of endless Mediterranean blue, this treasure trove of Eden-esque tranquillity puts wellness at its core. Relax and recuperate with yoga or an energising massage, enjoy expert nutrition and fitness programmes, or take your time to explore the tropical sanctuary that is Domes Zeen Chania.
Each of the 106 handcrafted and specifically designed rooms and suites encompass all of the tenets of the Greek idea of “parea” – a place to make memories. This notion is found throughout the hotel, and in every elegantly designed inch you will find an aesthetically pleasing palette of earthy and sandy hues that strike a stunning contrast against the vibrant ocean and verdant hillsides that the hotel overlooks. The Beach House kitchen offers incredible Mediterranean cuisine infused with local flavours and there is also a swimming pool, a pebbly beach in front of the resort, a kids' club, a Jungle Spa and a resort boutique to complete the all-encompassing atmosphere of luxury.
A bespoke OFSTED-standard kids’ club concept is found inside a treehouse-inspired wonderland that provides a safe haven for youngsters who are eager to explore. Little ones can enjoy cooking classes, painting workshops and even sleepovers in a tepee – giving parents the space to relax and enjoy their luxurious surroundings. Children can follow their creative passions in this tailor-made programme that melds together interactive elements with a modern educational approach.
And it isn’t only the hotel and facilities that make Domes Zeen Chania an incredible destination for adventure-seeking families. The ancient city of Chania is awash with stories and secrets. Culture lovers should visit Chania’s old town and discover the stunning mosque, lighthouse and fort, or venture into the hills to find historic monasteries. It is here, in Crete’s most evocative city, that the Domes story continues – this time, with a bespoke family-friendly hotel.
Minimalist mid-century design with an earthy and organic feel can be found in each of the 106 handcrafted rooms. The use of natural tones, wood and stone make each room feel like a comfortable home away from home. Each of the room types are fitted with exceptional luxury amenities and tailored with sophistication and convenience in mind.
