Domes Miramare, A Luxury Collection Resort, Corfu 

An elegant retreat with a royal history

Style, exquisite service and unique experiences combine at this Corfiot waterfront haven.

When a hotel once belonged to the Onassis family – and has long been the Corfu hotel of choice for royalty and the A-list – you know it’s going to exude sophistication. But there’s no need to worry that it’s stuck in a 1960s time warp; the resort has been thoughtfully redefined and is well worthy of 21st-century travellers. Clean lines, infinity pools and neutral hues accented by splashes of greenery and the blues of the Ionian Sea set the tone in this romantic, child-free environment. Days at Domes Miramare can range from lounging on the 600-metre long beach, stepping into the sea every now and again to cool off, to exploring the island on an arranged tour. The concierge team are on hand to organise your adventures, which could include a meal amid the vines of a hillside winery, a tour of an olive grove and mill, a mixology lesson or a trip out on the resort’s own speedboat, the Miramaretta.

Why we love Domes Miramare, A Luxury Collection Resort, Corfu

  • It’s a romantic, adult-only haven with an excellent spa and a well-curated list of cultural activities. 

  • It sits right on the beach, with waterfront pavilions and villas literally steps from the sea.

  • The dining scene is excellent, with a restaurant headed up Michelin-starred chef Petros Dimas and multiple bars, including the illustrious Blu Bar, formerly a favourite of the Greek King.

  • Several of the suites and pavilions have their own Jacuzzis in the gardens, and some add in private pools.

The dining scene at Domes Miramare is nothing short of legendary. From the aristocratic legacy of Blu Bar – where the former King of Greece used to host visiting dignitaries – to Michelin-starred chef creations at Makris, food and drink is taken seriously here. Seven bars and restaurants offer everything from Mediterranean and Greek to sushi and salads, and DJ decks at the bars add a dose of contemporary cool.

Makris
With creations devised by Michelin-starred chef Petros Dimas, this award-winning restaurant serves innovative dishes using local ingredients against a backdrop of pastel-blue sea.

1962 by the Sea
The resort’s main restaurant, Korypho specialises in bountiful breakfasts and contemporary Greek cuisine, plus seasonal tasting menus and an impressive wine list.

Raw Bar
Fresh sushi and creative cocktails are the central focus here, with chilled lounge music by the resident DJ and panoramic ocean views.

Blu Bar
A long-time party spot for royalty and the A-list, this legendary bar serves premium spirits, wines and cocktails with live piano music and a stylish blue backdrop.

Nobilis Bar
Located in the Panoramic Wing, this serves tailor-made drinks with stunning sea views and local artworks for added atmosphere.

Verde Pool Bar
Sip a barista-made coffee or cocktail and pick up a sandwich to go at this casual bar, set between the pool and beach and open throughout the day.

Pool Bar
A DJ set and scenic poolside setting make this bar a popular daytime hangout, with refreshing cocktails and light snacks on hand if you’re feeling peckish.

The food at Makris is divine, while Blu Bar takes the crown for its A-list legacy.
