The joy of discovery

With an enviable waterfront location, 20 km away from the international airport of Chania and just 11 km west of the town’s centre, the Blue Dome Hotel in Platanias is the starting point to explore a striking, ever changing landscape of stark contrasts and exceptional natural splendor.

Platanias, not surprisingly one of the island’s most famed resorts, is vibrant, picturesque and packed with choices: From water sports facilities or tasteful shops to bars and clubs under the stars, there is enough here to keep you from ever straying. But then again the postcard-pretty Old Town of Chania with its Venetian harbour, Egyptian lighthouse and Turkish quarters is a mere 15-minute drive away. And if you are willing to venture a bit further you’ll reach the awe-inspiring Samaria gorge and the exotic beach of Balos, both at about 40 km distance. In fact, this area of Crete is brimming with world-class and hidden gem sights and attractions. We would love to share our insights with you, just as we’ll go the extra mile to make your stay at the Blue Dome Hotel in Platanias super special. Please contact us for exclusive perks and deals.
