Marriott adds Domes of Corfu Hotel to its Autograph Collection
Marriott has announced the addition of Domes of Corfu Resort to its Autograph Collection Hotels, Marriott Bonvoy’s diverse and dynamic portfolio of independent hotels.
Located on the sun-kissed shores of the turquoise Ionian Sea, Domes of Corfu is situated on the Greek island’s western coast, along the famous blue flag-awarded Glyfada beach. The hotel is enclosed by a magical landscape at the roots of the pine-covered cliffs above. Only a 20-minute drive from Corfu International Airport and Old Town Corfu, a UNESCO World heritage site, guests have prime access to explore the very best of the island.
Elegantly designed with domed architecture, Domes of Corfu consists of 233 guest rooms and suites, each with its own private patio or veranda that reveal lightly scented gardens of blue jacaranda flower trees throughout. The hotel’s modern design aesthetic and stone-hued earthy interiors feature natural materials found in local surroundings.
Jennifer Connell, Vice President and Global Brand Leader, Autograph Collection, said:
We are thrilled to expand our offering of one-of-a-kind hotels in Greece and to debut Autograph Collection on the paradisical island of Corfu. Greece is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, and we are confident that the combination of Corfu’s natural beauty with Autograph Collection Hotels’ passion for design, will make Domes of Corfu one of the country’s leading leisure resorts.
Domes of Corfu features four signature dining concepts and four bars. The hotel’s largest restaurant, Agora, serves traditional Mediterranean fare with beautiful sea views across the bay. For fine dining, guests can enjoy Frourio offering Italian-Greek fusion dishes and Psarotaverva which serves the freshest catch of the day. Additionally, in the heart of the resort, guests can find the acclaimed Core Spianada, an open-air, multifunctional modernist approach to the ancient Greek gathering place, agora, that seamlessly fuses modern pop-up shopping with street food, socializing, engaging art, and a unique line-up of showstopping events.
The hotel features three swimming pools with adult-only areas, and the award-winning Soma Spa for renewal through indigenous ancient rituals. In addition, the property offers guests a myriad of uniquely creative activities for bonding with loved ones, from trekking tours of ancient sites to secluded beach cruises, and themed music events in co-operation with the Ionian University of Music. The property reinvents hospitality with a set of unique concepts, including the ‘Haute Living Selection (HLS)’; a collection of ultra-luxe accommodations with bespoke offerings, concierge service, and a 24/7 lounge, where all-inclusive becomes all exclusive for privileged HLS guests only.
The resort’s KiEPOS Kids Club is an oasis for children between the ages of four months to 12 years where the multilingual qualified staff are trained to British OFSTED standards and guided by a custom, Montessori inspired programme of unique activities. A designated leisure space for tweens and teens features all the latest entertainment and special events for well-travelled young adults to socialize whilst enjoying a comprehensive water-sports programme including water skiing, canoeing, and scuba diving, available for all ages to try.
Domes of Corfu joins Domes Miramare, a Luxury Collection Resort, Corfu as the second property on the island of Corfu within Marriott Bonvoy portfolio.
