We stayed at Domes Noruz in July/Aug 2021. We had booked the Ultimate Heaven for a family stay. It was the perfect set up for a family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers. The balcony was big and the private plunge pool was perfect. The room is a bit small and has quirky corners but the set up was perfect for our family. We turned the living room into a 3rd bedroom so our teens also each had their own rooms. The pull out sofas are actually really good beds, not miserable pull out couches. Everything at this hotel is just in perfect condition. If you notice anything that can be improved they do it immediately. We credit this to a very hard working friendly manager who seems to always be on site. Hands down this is the best hotel manager we have ever encountered. She really cares about her guests and the hotel and her staff. She is friendly, efficient and seems to enjoy her job. The setting is gorgeous, right on one of the best beaches near Chania. We enjoyed every aspect of the hotel from the nice staff at the restaurant, the great poolside bar and lounge, the outdoor gym etc etc. The food was excellent and the Chef went out of his way to make it a special experience. The staff were friendly and took care of every need we had. They have a fantastic Greek wine selection, far underrated and we really enjoyed the sommeliers knowledge of European wines. The Chef grows his own chilis on property and make a fantastic chili sauce - if you need a spicy kick to the food - just request the chili sauce. The concierge team is ever so helpful and really takes care of every need any guests have. It was a bit confusing with the 2 Marias at the concierge desk but they were both equally nice and helpful. They organized a great day on a boat and gave us fantastic tips for restaurants in town and lunch options. This was one of the most relaxing vacations our family have taken. We just regret it was not longer. Crete has so much to offer and we only got to see a tiny corner of the Chania area. We will be back.

Amazing stay at the Domes Noruz. Staff is wonderful and attentive. Rooms and grounds are beautiful. I’d recommend a room facing the ocean they are more private then the pool facing suites and worth the money. We had a blast and would love a repeat.

After a half hour drive from Chania airport we arrived at Domes Noruz. The security guard swiftly showed us where to park and we were accompanied to reception where the friendly staff invited us to take a seat and formalities were dealt with while local treats and welcome drinks were served. It was a smooth and quick process. We were offered recommendations for dining and other local activities. We were then escorted to our rooms and offered a tour of the hotel amenities in the process. I stayed in two different room types; the Upbeat Retreat with plunge pool and the Wellness Loft. The Upbeat Retreat was spacious, with a comfortable bed opening out to a veranda with chairs and a lounging area and a good sized plunge pool. There was also a deep bath on the veranda. Indoors was the shower and toilet while the wash basin was in the main part of the room. Complimentary OlivEra products were provided and regularly replenished. Some of the Upbeat Retreats, particularly those nearest the reception have higher ceilings making them more airy. The Wellness Loft is considered an upgrade from the Upbeat Retreat. It is spread across two floors. The bedroom area with a small bathroom and a sink is on the upstairs level while the living area is downstairs along with a shower/toilet room. There is also a double sofa and a veranda with a whirlpool bathtub but no plunge pool. The rooms were very similarly decorated. Upgraded Elemis products were available in the Loft. Personally, I much preferred the Upbeat Retreat. I liked having the plunge pool, and it felt more spacious. I like the idea of the Wellness Loft but in trying to squeeze a lot of things in a small space, I found that it felt more crammed. For example, the toilet is perched right next to the shower screen with little space. The shower door itself would not close fully. Similarly, the upstairs bathroom is so small it’s not really comfortable to use. On my last evening, when I tried to use the outdoor bath tub, I realised that the plug would not seal properly and therefore could not fill the bath. I’m sure staff would have sorted it out but being late at night, I just decided not to use it. Lastly the doorbell in the Wellness Loft had not been working. On a return trip I would very much prefer the Upbeat Retreat or any of the other ground floor options with plunge pools. I like the style of the resort and the room decor. Natural colours and materials create a relaxed feel, very well suited to beach/island life. Breakfast was served at Topos restaurant and consisted of a varied buffet as well as hot dishes cooked to order. The staff did a fantastic job ensuring people wore masks and gloves when browsing the buffet. Many of the options also varied daily which was nice to see. We also enjoyed drinks at Raw, the pool bar throughout the day. A perfect place for sunsets and sundowners! Overall, I would probably give the hotel 4.5 but one thing that truly stands out is the service! The staff at the hotel are all absolutely incredible. No matter what they do, from concierge to reception to bar and restaurant staff, housekeeping and maintenance, everyone was extremely professional, helpful, always available and no request was ever too much for them. Everything was handled quickly and efficiently. A special mention for Olga at Topos restaurant during breakfast - she was phenomenal! Friendly, professional, attentive, and incredibly helpful! Without a doubt made our day! Exceptional service like this will always put a hotel at the top of my list, despite some minor “hardware” issues. Having also been to all Domes properties minus the recently opened Domes of Corfu, the service at Noruz is, hands down, at the very top.

At the beginning I want to congratulate the staff for their excellent and dedicated work. They were always present but not in any disturbing ways. We got really good hints from our daily talks with them. Where to go, what to see and taste. There was also a nice extra cocktail class activity for Bonvoy members. Bartender introduced a few basic cocktails which can be then tasted and every one could choose the one for themselves to drink as an ending. Place was almost full but still it was very quiet and peaceful everywhere. Getting reservations for breakfast and dinner was not so easy. Nothing that you can do hours or even a day before. Luckily we are night owls so late breakfast around 10 o'clock was just fine. Place was dead quiet after 11pm when everything closed. Restaurants were really good but did not have enough variation for a one week resort life. For us this was fine but someone else might care. The location is near enough to Chania to go out but we did find decent or even excellent places nearby. We tried two types of rooms. The first one had a basic layout which was working well but the bathroom was a total disaster. Everything inside was soaking wet after a shower and a little later all the floors are also room side became wet and slippery. The second room was a wellness loft. The Downstairs bedding area is working well but the sink area made it a little tight to move around. Hot tub with sea views was something we used daily. It was very relaxing after daily hikes around the island before heading for dinners.

Above all else, from the moment we arrived until the moment we left, all the staff were exemplary. Warm, informative, helpful but never unctuous, we were hugely impressed from the delightful Maria who greeted us to the man at the gate who waved us off. We felt fortunate in our choice of rooms. They were right on the beach with small private pools so the view was excellent and privacy not too much of a problem. The architecture of the place is fairly brutal but probably has wide appeal beyond me. There are two lovely large pools and the access to the sandy beach couldn’t be better. We enjoyed the breakfasts and the one dinner that we had having decided, on this fleeting visit to this end of the island, to explore all the options. The car company that the hotel laid on was very good and whisked us around with efficient good humour. Apparently, all the treatments that the rest of my family had in the Spa were amazing. I think that the only downside for me was in the interior design of the plumbing. Our shower room/loo was decidedly odd and the only basin squashed into a corner of the bedroom was very cramped. Our bath, which I guess is supposed to be exhilerating in some way, was on our terrace and obvious to any passer by. Being of a certain age and poundage, I’m not that keen on flaunting myself.
