An uninterrupted adults-only concept, eyecatching dome-shaped architecture, understated modern style and personalised service are defining features at Domes Noruz Chania, Autograph Collection. But this luxury hideaway is more than just a boutique retreat at which to indulge in quality R&R. It’s also a gateway to northwest Crete’s beauty spots. Discover the untamed beauty of Samaria Gorge or the east-meets-west charm of Chania old town on excursions organised by the hotel. Having undergone a tourism renaissance thanks to its reputation as an up-and-coming destination among the Mediterranean it-crowd, Chania represents a viable alternative to the more recognisable Ibiza, Bodrum or Mykonos. Grown-up getaways on the Med don't get much better than this.
