Domes, Greece’s leading luxury lifestyle hospitality brand and one of the fastest growing in the Mediterranean, has announced new hotel openings and growth plans for 2023, starting with its inaugural launch on the island of Milos.
Opening its doors later in the year as Domes White Coast Milos, Domes is to operate the luxury 30-suite hotel, currently branded as Small Luxury Hotels of the World, located in a waterfront nature preserve on the island’s northern coast. Each suite of this adults-only property boasts its own private-infinity pool, uninterrupted sea and sunset views over the Myrtoan Sea, and access to three sandy beaches just a few steps away. Architecturally inspired by the destination’s white rock formations, Domes White Coast Milos encapsulates a calm haven with luxurious simplicity, subtle interiors and neutral tones, enabling guests to disconnect and soak up the surrounding natural environment.
CEO of Domes, Dr. George P. Spanos, states “We are immensely excited about our newfound collaboration with Invel Real Estate and Prodea Investments on this first of many more exciting projects to come in the Cyclades Greek Islands. Our vision is to evolve this unique asset into the leading private-pool hotel in the Aegean, with the expansion occurring in two phases over the next two years and will reach the total number of 130 suites. This will enable us to strengthen our footprint in the Cyclades, and solidify our alliance with Invel and Prodea”.
This news follows the group’s recent expansion at the jewel in the crown Domes Miramare, a Luxury Collection Hotel in Corfu. Designed by Kristina Zanic and architecturally styled by Makridis & Associates, the 7,000sqm extension welcomed 69 new rooms and suites, a new spa, pool, gym, restaurant and loft bar last season. The new areas continue Domes Miramare’s modernist aesthetic in a minimalist, contemporary style. The façade has been entirely reinvented with clean archways inspired by Corfu Old Town’s heritage buildings, accompanied by intentionally low-key and minimal interiors to frame the remarkable views of the sea and neighbouring five century-old olive grove.
Across the Mediterranean to southern Portugal, Domes Lake Algarve near Vilamoura is currently undergoing a comparable renovation and joins the prestigious Autograph Collection hotels, becoming part of Marriott International. The family-friendly hotel, which spearheaded Domes’ growth outside of Greece last year, will reopen this spring. Its chic refurbishment is designed to embrace the natural surroundings and uplifting climate, while guestrooms and public spaces will feature fresh designs inspired by its surrounding gardens and lake. The hotel will also welcome an adults-only pool for calm downtime whilst children enjoy the original large swimming pool and salt-water lake.
From luxury hotels and fine-dining restaurants to beach clubs and wellness retreats, Domes Resorts has become a leading lifestyle hospitality brand in the Mediterranean with remarkable plans and growth ahead. Further new openings will be soon announced in popular Greek destinations including the peninsula of Halkidiki, Mykonos, Santorini and the Athenian Riviera, whilst the brand also plans to expand even further across Europe.
