Domes Zeen Chania

Hotel Description

"Nestled against a stunning backdrop, Domes Zeen Chania is an open-hearted sleek modernist retreat delivering a soulful, holistic take on a Mediterranean escape. It is a modernist village for the savvy traveler and a minimalist’s dream! Focusing on the Greek philosophy of ""ef Zeen"" (the art of living well) and having the postmodern family in mind, public spaces are designed in a relaxed architectural style with sociable open spaces, while the handcrafted earthy rooms are quiet, organic and intimate, both offering enriched comfort and laid-back luxury. A relaxed escape by day and a social spot at night, a hub for all well-travelled to take in life at its fullest, bringing a sense of timelessness and fulfillment."   

Domes Zeen Chania


One of the oldest settlements in the world, the evocative city of Chania is a tantalising mix of old and new.

Around every corner, evidence of how important this strategic location has been for countless civilisations past is found in the form of sights, smells and sounds. This is by no means a city to look at. It’s a city to get stuck in. From the romantic old harbour area to the iconic 16th-century lighthouse, imposing stately homes and Turkish bathhouses, all the way through to rustic winding alleys and charming open-air markets showcasing locally-grown produce, it’s a veritable mosaic of old and new, echoing the past and embracing the present with a vibe that gently invites you to live life to the fullest.

Just ten minutes from Zeen, the old town of Chania is a vibrant whirlwind of options for even the worldliest of travellers to get excited about. That’s why it’s considered the best place to stay in Crete. Just speak to our 24-hour reception to arrange a car, scooter or bicycle to discover it yourself – or even take a little time to walk there, taking in the fantastic scenery at a leisurely pace.

Bungalows and Rooms Collection

Designed from a grey and beige palette, the earthy and organic AHEAD DESIGN AWARDED suites and bungalows consist of a king-sized or twin beds and en suite granite bathroom with walk-in shower. Embellished with elements of naturally fallen dark timber; handmade furniture, rattan weaves and tree trunk stools furnish the space, splashed with bright summer hues of hand-picked local and international geometric artwork, traditional baskets, and pottery that create an overwhelmingly relaxed private sanctuary. Light grey layered drapes reveal retractable glass panels that open to the summer stone terrace and allow the full spectrum of the sun in, throughout the day, or completely darken the cool, grey variegated marble flooring. Outside, choose uplifting garden or sea vistas with a choice of your own garden with private or shared infinity pool, and walk through the stone alleys of this Mediterranean settlement through tropical foliage to the beach, main pool, restaurants, and bars.

With a first-row seat to the mesmerizing colors of the majestic Cretan sky, the Pavilions and Villas comprise our elite-tier accommodation collection. Dedicated to the Greek philosophy of “ef Zeen” (the art of living well), the HL collection combines privacy and the benefits of a world-class resort. Designed in shades of grey and beige, the open-plan, one- or two-bedroom pavilions, and villas consist of king and twin beds, expansive living area, lush granite bathroom with bathtub and walk-in shower. Embellished with elements of naturally fallen dark timber wood; they all share the same attention to detail, comfort and barefoot luxury achieved with palettes of earth colours, handmade furniture, local artwork all blended with state-of-the-art appliances and thoughtful amenities, from fine-textured linen to luxury beauty essentials. Outdoors, enjoy sea or garden views and whispering tropical foliage from a furnished stone terrace in your garden with loungers and private or shared pool.

Domes Vibrant Communities and Sustainability

Domes Resorts create retreats to coexist with nature and the surrounding communities. Situated in privileged ecosystems and UNESCO protected World Heritage sites we strive to tailor an experience around awareness and respect, through first-hand observation and care for thriving ecosystems, as we aim to practice an environmentally conscious lifestyle and a true pursuit of sustainable development.
