Wake up to a spot of yoga on the beach, and unwind in the lovely spa, which has an indoor pool and a juice bar, before lounging on the glamorous gazebos on the white sand beach. Dedicated staff are on hand to deliver a divine cocktail from the Zeen Beach Bar by Bombay Sapphire or a glass of bubbles from the Raw Bar by Moet & Chandon - just press the button whenever you fancy a drink: you don't even need to move from your sunlounger! Relax and watch the waves in the distance from one of the two outdoor pools. 

Activities at Domes Noruz Chania

Hire a car to explore the many hidden coves and secret beaches that dot the island and find your own perfect hideaway, or walk to the lighthouse or hike along the winding passageways of the beautiful Samaria Gorge, a national park and world biosphere reserve.

Should you wish to venture out of the hotel, the charming town of Chania, with its eclectic Venetian/Ottoman/Egyptian history, is just a 10-minute taxi ride away, where you’ll find restaurants and boutique shops lining the waterfront. Browse the colourful markets for gems from olive oil to pottery.

After a relaxing day in the sun on the fine white sand of the beach, looking out over the turquoise waters of the Aegean, don’t miss the legendary sunsets. Once the sun goes down, the hotel comes to life at night, often holding glamorous events with resident bands or DJs playing the soundtrack to your evening.
