Easter Escape at Domes of Elounda, Autograph Collection

Crete’s Domes of Elounda luxury hotel is the ideal spot to celebrate this Easter. Set on the jaw-dropping Cretan coastline, Domes of Elounda is magical and this year the property has created a delightful range of classic Easter activities to be enjoyed by children and adults alike. 

Easter activities start with some egg decorating at one of Europe’s best kids’ clubs. Each child, with paint brushes at the ready, will be able to turn the humble egg into a ‘chef d’oeuvre’. There will be a traditional Easter Egg Hunt for children and adults to explore the stunning and lush hotel gardens located near a wide stretch of secluded, shaded and sanded seashore. From panoramic views over glimmering blue Elounda Bay to tree lined beaches, there is no shortage of places to look, making this an enjoyable adventure for all. And for those children (and fathers perhaps), who seek that bit of extra competition, the Easter Egg and Spoon Race never disappoints! Armed with said spoon and precariously perched egg, candidates must combine dexterity and skill to win this classic and indisputably fun event. 

Having built up an appetite following the light-hearted activities, the talented Chefs at Domes of Elounda will then treat all guests to a festive and lavish Easter lunch banquet including a ‘children’s buffet’ on a table high enough for little hands to reach with menu items such as a fairy gum drop tree, Easter candy and cupcakes.  

Ideal for families, there are boat trips daily, freshly prepared baby food available, an extensive children’s spa treatment menu (which includes such delectables as chocolate facials and mummy and me pedicures), baby cots, monitors, highchairs, sterilizers, kettles and baby bath tubs. 

With four outstanding pools, three freshwater for the family and one saltwater for adults - there is plenty for swimmers. With the only natural sandy beach in the region, and awarded a 'Blue Flag' status, Domes’ private beach is particularly attractive for families due to its shallow and quiet waters.  Lined with ancient olive trees and wooden decking, along with inviting day-beds, the beach also boasts a range of watersports for guests of all ages to enjoy.

Domes Crèche is suitable for children aged four months through four years while Domes Kids Club accommodates older children and up to the age of 12 with age appropriate activities extended on a complimentary basis. For teenagers, facilities range from a dedicated ‘teenager room’ including table tennis tables to tennis courts and watersports facilities. All this gives adult guests a chance for total relaxation - with the peace of mind that little loved ones are having as good a time as they are. 

Award winning Domes of Elounda is located in one of the loveliest parts of Greece, the cosmopolitan Elounda; a long-time A-list secret location, favoured by host of famous faces such as Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt and Rhianna.  Boasting a collection of distinctively designed suites and villas, Domes of Elounda is a delightful retreat with breath-taking, 360 degree views of cerulean blue.  Only 3 hours and 55 minutes out of Gatwick, nearby Heraklion airport makes this an utterly perfect escape.
