Onassis resort undergoes multi-million Euro renovation

by Jane Kitchen | 06 Jul 2018

Domes Miramare – a resort in Corfu originally built for the Onassis family in the late 1960s – has emerged from a renovation, and will operate under Marriott’s Luxury Collection brand from 1 August.

The beachfront retreat is one of a trio of Domes Resorts in Greece, and currently features a boutique spa, with plans for a larger one in the future.

The current spa includes three treatment rooms – one double, one single and one hydrotherapy Vichy shower room – a whirlpool and experience shower. It offers signature hydrotherapy rituals with horizontal showers for detox, easing muscle tension and nourishing the skin.

Treatments will feature skincare from Elemis for face, body and massage, along with select Codage paris face and body treatments. Hampton Sun will provide luxury sun care, and LCN will offer vegan-friendly nail gels.

Beachfront yoga and outdoor personal training sessions will also be offered.

“This is our third collaboration with Domes Resorts in another exclusive and luxurious resort,” said Ioannis Charalambous, director of brands & development Relia Trading, the distributor for Elemis in Greece and Cyprus. “Attention to detail and commitment to excellent hospitality is just one of the reasons why we have found compatibility in the way we work. I couldn’t be prouder to be bringing Elemis in this iconic location in Greece.”

Originally designed by architect Charalambos Sfaellos, Domes Miramare remains faithful to Sfaellos’ characteristic modernist style. The adult-only resort will offer 113 bedrooms, suites and villas that have been reimagined by Kristina Zanic Design Consultants.

Shades of cream and taupe are blended with accents of soft blue and green, alongside modern furnishings and natural materials in patterns inspired by the surrounding landscape. The marble bathrooms with bespoke pastel-tiled washbasins offer a nod to ancient Greek mosaics.

The resort’s collection of Pavilion Suites enjoy beachfront locations with private pools and gardens.

Artwork influenced by the island’s Venetian, French, British and Greek heritage adorns walls and public spaces, while Corfiot influences permeate throughout.

“The Miramare Hotel has a long history of welcoming the glitterati, and it’s heartening to see this icon reclaiming its rightful place as one of the Mediterranean’s newest and most luxurious resorts,” said Anthony Ingham, global brand leader, The Luxury Collection. “The stunning, multi-million Euro transformation will ensure that this very special resort remains the definitive luxury destination for decades to come.”
