    Domes Miramare - Corfu - Greece

    Back in the day Jackie Onassis topped up her tan here, while husband Aristotle fished from the beach. When Poseidon fell in love and wanted to woo his amour, Kerkyra, he brought her to a hitherto unknown island, and offered up her name to the spot we now know as Corfu (or Kerkyra in Greek).

    Time out with your inner Goddess

    For some adult-only indulgence, we heartily recommend you pamper your inner Greek God or Goddess at this charming resort on the eastern side of Corfu, just a three-hour flight away from the UK. It’s great for a long weekend when you need a blast of sun, for a blissful week away or a fortnight’s total flop.

    The lowdown

    • Perfect for

      Adults seeking indulgence. Short breaks with a easy transfer from the airport.

    • Need to know

      There is only a narrow stretch of beach but leads into a sandy cove which is great for swimming.

    • Insider tip

      Stay in one of the exclusive Pavilions or Grand Pavilions with uninterrupted sea views and direct access to the water, and some with their own pools, all part of the Haute Living collection.

    The resort has had a long and illustrious history – back in the day Jackie Onassis topped up her tan here, while husband Aristotle fished from the beach. European royalty enjoyed its charms too and French President Mitterand considered it a haven of tranquillity – but was closed for refurbishment before emerging out of its chrysalis, totally renovated, last summer.

    Situated along a long, narrow stretch of beach it also has a pool and spa, while some suites come with their own Jacuzzi and pool for an added touch of privacy. Away from the property, the concierge team can create exclusive local experiences such as soap making, an island Jeep safari or visits to a renowned Corfiot ceramicist or olive oil producer.

    If you really want to experience the finest the resort has to offer we suggest elevating your time here to Haute Living, with upgraded accommodation and services.
