Daios Cove Luxury Resort & Villas

Our rating: Deluxe


You can choose from 300 rooms spanning a wide range of categories, including 38 spacious private villas cut directly into the rock face. All the rooms share the same modern style, with clean, minimalist lines that are warmed by the gentle palette of pale fawn and dusky blue, reflecting the sea and sand outside.

Many of the rooms boast a sea view and all share generously sized windows to flood the room with light. You can also opt for a room with a private salt-water plunge pool. Marble-clad en suite bathrooms are lavishly sized and have separate tubs and showers. 


The property is just a 15-minute drive from Agios Nikolaos, with its many shops, bars and restaurants. However, its coastal location offers a quiet retreat as well as easy access to a private beach on a cove. To reach the beach, you can use the stairs or take the funicular. 

Food and drink

  • Pangea, the main restaurant, serves a lavish buffet.
  • Fine dining with a menu designed by a Michelin-starred chef at Ocean.
  • Rustic Mediterranean and Asian-fusion food and innovative cocktails at the open-air Beach House.
  • Taverna serves a casual Greek and Mediterranean menu.
  • Overlooking the bay, Crystal Box lounge offers Champagne and cocktails.
  • Snacks, nibbles and drinks served at Beach Bar.


This hotel is excellent for families. At the Crèche Club, fully certified staff look after babies and toddlers. There’s a Children’s Club, as well as a menu of activities for teens. Family villas have multiple bedrooms and facilities including gates to make your private pool safer for young children. 

Facilities and activities

  • Fully serviced private beach with funicular.
  • Infinity pool.
  • Generously sized spa.
  • Tennis courts.

We find this hotel has an excellent combination of a great location, a private beach and ample facilities. It’s indulgent enough for honeymooners, with plentiful restaurants and bars, but also offers good options for families or large groups.
