Tholos is a buffet restaurant in the main dining room.

Topos 1910 is a decked promontory leading out to sea for fine-dining under a twinkling sky.

Yaosai (‘fortress’ in Chinese) has Japanese-Peruvian fare and tables with views out to Spinalonga.

Blend is the resort’s upmarket Italian fusion restaurant. Dishes vary from season to season, depending on what local produce is available; a breakfast buffet is served here too.

Room service
An abridged selection is available at any time of day or night.

Sip & Savour

There are four bars where you can kick back and leisurely sip a glass of chilled Cretan white.

The Yaosai Pool Bar on the edge of the main pool, the Pool Bar in the Domes Plaza and Breeze the Breeze Beach Lounge down on the beach (an area reserved exclusively for the Haute Living Guests), are all open for daytime drinking from 10am to 6pm, with views of glimmering water and day-beds to recline on.

The Grand Domes Bar extends from reception with huge windows showcasing Spinalonga and the sea, and low white sofas, glimmering chandeliers, gleaming marble and stylish neutrals, which make it glamorously relaxed.

At sunset, the bar comes alive, offering inventive cocktails on the terrace, views of the Island and live music (mainly chill-out or jazz) on selected nights.

pool serenity

Just a stone wall separates the main infinity pool from the sea; it’s so close that ocean spray and gentle waves often break over the edge. The long pool is family-friendly, unheated and surrounded by a pool terrace with sun loungers and cargo-net hammocks.

 Poolside bar Koko slakes guests’ thirst. Views from the pool and surrounding terrace extend all the way to Coco Island, Sister Islands and Praslin Island. There’s a small pool in the spa, too.
