The delightful Domes Noruz hotel opened back in July in what is an extraordinary Greek destination. It’s the second Autograph Collection property in this part of the world, part of Marriott International’s growing collection of strikingly independent hotels.

Sister hotel to the legendary Domes of Elounda, the Domes Noruz Chania, is an 83-room and suites, adults-only, beachfront boutique hotel. This heavenly haven joins an evolving ensemble of strikingly independent hotels. Each destination has been selected for its quality, bold originality, rich character and uncommon details, created for the traveller seeking an escape from the predictable.

This brand new experiential hotel in Chania, complete with a buzzy atmosphere, is a must visit destination for a couple, or a group of friends looking to relax and have fun in chic, ultra-stylish surroundings. Situated in Agioi Apostoloi, one of the most popular beaches in the area, the resort is surrounded by a variety of beautiful parks and sport centres.

As the second largest city in Crete, cosmopolitan Chania is enticing, welcoming and atmospheric, offering the most incredible bars, restaurants, cafés and taverns. This is where you’ll find some of the world’s most engrossing beaches including Platanias, Maleme, Kasteli and Agia Marina. Lively Chania will charm you with its utterly enchanting Venetian harbour and lighthouse. It’s a seamless blend of Ottoman, Venetian and Greek architecture. The old town is just a 10-minute drive from the hotel and is sure to be a magnet for guests. Chania is also steeped in history, home to a famous market and an impressive Archaeological Museum. The Nautical Museum of Crete, the house of El. Venizelos and the War Museum of Chania will help you explore the rich past of this blessed island.

Now part of this extra-ordinary vibe Domes Noruz Chania, with sporting clean lines, splashes of vibrant colours and a striking design, is an exclusive adults-only hotel offering a bright and airy ambience, exuding a cool and romantic feel. Its adults-only status allows for a holiday of privacy, intimacy and exclusivity, but with easily accessible night-life and cultural attractions. Domes Noruz embraces the past and the present of the area, building on its inherent charisma and introducing a fresh, contemporary opportunity for design savvy guests to enjoy each and every moment.

The play of sunlight and the ever-changing sky will become a focal point throughout the style, interiors and architecture of the property. Domes Noruz doesn’t want to merely host guests, but curate the holiday individuals have been dreaming of. A strong sense of locality fused with the highest standards of hospitality and a well-researched touch of innovation are translated into tailor made experiences. Whether that be fine cocktails with unexpected local ingredients, late night events at the Domes Noruz’s sandy beach under the moonlight, or helicopter rides at the breath-taking UNESCO protected Samaria Gorge.

Room options include those with spectacular pool and sea views as well as private outdoor baths or plunge pools. Most look out onto a wide swath of naturally sanded beach-front on the lapis Cretan Sea. The architecture, inspired by the Venetian heritage of the old town of Chania, is breath-taking, while all details have been carefully considered. There are delightful touches everywhere, such as mini Smeg fridges and coffee table books by Taschen.

The beautiful seaside with stunning ocean views is ideal for private yoga lessons. Thoughtful touches have been added throughout such as preloaded MP3 players with uplifting music, the emphasis on creating the right setting and anticipating every guest’s need. The inviting spa is a haven of serenity and tranquillity. With design inspired by traditional local embroidery and fabrics, this calming space is dominated by a soothing shade of sky blue. Intentionally sub-lit, with diffused, indirect lighting to sustain a sense of relaxation, it offers the latest in natural massage and experiences, while using organic herbs from the island. The pool area and the juice bar nearby are just two of the highlights.

George P. Spanos, Vice-president of Ledra Hotels and Villas SA (owning and managing company of Domes Noruz Chania) commented, ”We added our own touch of aesthetics to make accommodation at Domes Noruz Chania a unique experience. From the initial design to completion, our team has been working at creating an innovative, boutique and fresh property. These elements which will be seen throughout the property will be further enhanced by the spectacular destination of Chania.”

The hotel’s hotly anticipated restaurant, Zeen, will offer delectable Cretan cuisine with international accents – all led by the acclaimed, award-winning chef, Doxis Bekris. It has a dynamic, modern all day restaurant and bar with different deli corners during breakfast, such as a bakery display and a vitality bar. This vibrant space puts an emphasis on local produce and organic ingredients, while adding an international flair to beloved Cretan recipes. Chef Bekris’ talent has led him to work in places such as Dubai, New York, Italy, Japan, Zambia, Zurich and Kenya, and he brings a very cosmopolitan and current approach to food. The rooftop Raw Bar, with its amazing sunset, and The N Bar are both sleek and stylish, offering guests an extensive selection of unique cocktails and tasty bites.

It is without question the perfect setting for a holiday sure to create wonderful memories savoured for years to come. For contemporary coolness Chania is both creative and charismatic.
