Domes Zeen Chania

Domes Zeen Chania

Crete, Greece

Chic and stylish Domes Zeen Chania is located on the edge of Chania, just a ten-minute drive from the heart of the Old Town. Both the common areas and the 102 rooms are furnished in earth tones and styled with sleek furniture, with a focus on natural materials and textures. Many rooms have bold, monochromatic artworks featuring abstract figures that reflect ancient Cycladic statues, helping to maintain a strong sense of place. All rooms have balconies or terraces overlooking the garden or the sea. Villa and pavilion options have their own private pools and sunbeds.

Guests can take advantage of the hotel’s private beach area, as well as the pool, gym and modern spa. There’s also a kids’ club offering activities for the family. During summer months, breakfast is served in the Beach House overlooking the beach and the pool. There’s also an à la carte restaurant and bar.


We love Domes Zeen Chania for its sleek design and quieter location just outside Chania. Its convenient location makes it a great base from which to explore western Crete.
