You won’t find too many hotels on the beach in Corfu – it’s illegal to build them within a hundred metres of the seashore. Luckily, Domes Miramare got its permit from before that law was passed.
Domes Miramare shuts for the winter, usually from mid-October to mid-April.
At the hotel

Our favourite rooms
Pick a Pavilion Suite Waterfront with a Private Pool (Room 202 is a good ’un) – not only can you moor your own boat right outside the door, but there’s a retractable roof over your living room; watch the palm trees sway in the breeze by day, and then stargaze all night long.
The enormous main pool is flanked by palm trees, nest-egg cabanas and pairs of sunloungers; the beach is just a few steps away. There’s a separate pool with a juice bar, for the exclusive use of guests who book an Haute Living package.
Soma Spa uses Elemis and Codage Paris products to administer a raft of wellness treatments on a platform overlooking the sea. Go for a booster facial, deep-tissue massage, or perhaps buddy up for the Finding Equilibrium treatment for two. There are fitness classes in the olive garden most mornings.
Bring your most elegantly head-turning outfits, the kind that’d make Jackie Kennedy Onassis proud.
All communal areas are wheelchair accessible, and two of the Emerald Retreat Sea View rooms have adapted bathrooms. Book a Villa or Pavilion for access to the ‘Haute Living’ facilities, including a private living room, swimming pool and free drinks.
Welcome to join you in your room for €20 a night, plus a one-off cleaning fee of €100. They’re not allowed in the public areas of the hotel, though (including the pool, spa, beach and restaurants), and trouble-makers will be asked to leave. See more pet-friendly hotels in Corfu.
It’s over-16s only, so you'll need to leave little Smiths at home for this one.
