What better place to reconnect with family and friends than at Domes Zeen Chania resort located in one of the oldest settlements in the world. Designed as a Greek village, this tropical oasis overlooks the sapphire sea from its prime spot on the island of Crete.
Stay in a chic bungalow, pavilion or villa cocooned under the leaves of banana trees. This family-friendly property has just 102 rooms to choose from offering a mixture of coast or garden views. It's ideally located to explore the romantic old harbour and landmark lighthouse.
The Haute Living selection, for the top tier rooms and villas, offer privileges including half board and round-the-clock concierge service.
Inside you will find a cool mix of stone, wood and rattan which perfectly offsets the lush greenery outside the vast windows. The two-bedroom Sapphire Bungalows are perfect for couples, while the Tropical and Sapphire family pavilions are child-friendly and come with a private pool.
Enjoy direct access to the beach for a dip in the sea. Other activities include mountain biking, horse riding, diving, and sailing.
While time together is special, weary parents may welcome the kids’ club which offers a sleepover in a yurt. They can also learn more about the healthy Greek diet and take part in planting their own vegetables in the resort’s organic garden.
This leaves you free to head to the beachside spa or take part in one of the many activities, from wine and olive oil tasting to cookery. Finish the day with dinner at the Enino Gastronomy Restaurant which includes a wine-themed fine dining menu of Greek and Cretan. Enjoy a signature cocktail at the Beach House Bar by the black-tiled pool.
Zeen is a classic Greek term for living well, and this is exactly what you will do at the open-air Jungle Spa. Relaxing hot-stone therapy and energy massages are on offer, which you may need at the end of your stay at this laid-back resort.
