Meet the One-Of-A-Kind Open-Air Agora
At Domes of Elounda, Autograph Collection, Core is an invitation to explore; to feel; to experience; to discover.
Arrived in 2019, this unique hub for culture, entertainment and organic socializing is a conjunction of handpicked, refined experiences made to be enjoyed with your loved ones – or even new friends. Designed by NaNA, an award-winning international architectural studio involved in a diverse range of projects, this outdoor hub of summer life is an exciting space where art, gastronomy, fashion, culture, shopping and more come together under the Greek sky to inspire guests and offer endless opportunity for enjoyment.
Pop-up shops meet street food, visual art and outdoor entertainment in a world of curated urban excitement that covers a wide range of preferences.
At Domes Resorts & Reserves, our idea for a destination resort that is truly worth visiting goes far beyond luxurious accommodation, bespoke service and world-famous natural beauty.
Setting the mood are the sculptures and paintings of the Greek Monsters exhibition by acclaimed communication design studio, Beetroot, which playfully bring together ancient myth and modern graphic design. Inspired by tales of Ancient Greek mythology starring Hercules, Ulysses and more heroes, the artwork is a reimagining of legendary creatures and beasts whose tales were woven in this land millennia ago, coming to life in vibrant orange and black. Guests stroll among creatures as iconic as Medusa, the Cyclops and mermaids in addition to more works of fascinating art coming upon pop-up shops hosted within glass-fronted cubes which hide objects of desire created by innovative Greek and international fashion and lifestyle brands – including the Anemi, Curiudo, Neema Resortwear and Souvenir stores. Around the corner, the appetizing smells of cooked to-order street food and deli delights deliver on the promise of bright, intriguing flavors from across the world ordered from food trucks and enjoyed alfresco at the inviting tables or even on the lawn.
We know that our guests are looking for an exceptional escape from the daily grind, and we keep finding new ways to deliver in spades.
Next to this buzzing promenade, beautiful botanical gardens serve as group yoga and meditation spots where you can relax, exercise or combine the two, while children can’t get enough of the activities on offer in specially made areas, including the thrilling eco-playground. An open-air cinema, masterclasses, workshops and street entertainment complete this colorful puzzle of summer leisure. Don’t miss the chance to explore the vibrant landscape of Core – you’ll find a surprise around every corner.
