Daios Cove Luxury Resort and Villas

‘Idyllic Getaway Nestled in Cretan Cove’

Situated in a private cove on the north east of Crete is Daios Cove Luxury Resort & Villas. With accommodation integrated into the environment, you can choose between rooms, suites, and villas. The resort has a seawater infinity pool overlooking the Aegean ocean, a water sports centre on the beach, tennis courts and newly refurbished speciality spa. Six restaurants showcase Cretan cuisine prepared with fresh, local ingredients. 

In Our Opinion

'The newly refurbished KEPOS by Goco Spa is the perfect spot to enjoy a Thai massage, or experience holistic approaches to health through unique modern technologies.'


Located at the water’s edge is this taverna serving dishes inspired by Greek fusion cuisine for lunch and dinner. It also features daily specialities, such as the fresh fish catch of the day, alongside a selection of Greek and international wines. 

Ocean Restaurant

Ocean Restaurant offers Mediterranean dishes intertwined with regional Cretan style set against the backdrop of the cove. Open for lunch and dinner, there is also an extensive selection of unique speciality cocktails on offer. 


Overlooking the naturalistic landscape of the cove, Pangea is an international food bazaar experience with a buffet menu. Enjoy a selection of fresh meat and fish, alongside vegetarian and vegan options, al fresco on the terrace. Open for breakfast and dinner.

Crystal Box

Crystal Box is a bar serving signature cocktails alongside traditional spirits, beers and wines. It features an outside lounge with views over the bay, and is open from mid-morning until late night.

The Beach House

The Beach House serves food reminiscent of the Mediterranean region and the Orient on the secluded coastal cove of the resort. Seasonal locally grown and sourced ingredients are combined for lunch and dinner dishes.

Ocean Pool Bar

Serving cocktails and other refreshing beverages alongside light bites, the Ocean Pool Bar is open from mid-morning until late night.
