We have mentioned Domes of Elounda in Crete quite a bit of Head for Points. Until Marriott pushed it up to 85,000 points per night last week, it was probably the best family-friendly Marriott Bonvoy redemption.
At peak season, it is still a decent deal even at 85,000 points. A family suite for four in August is around €800 per night so you’re getting 0.8p per Bonvoy point against my ‘expected’ value of 0.5p. Outside the Summer peak points are no longer a good deal.
Anyway …. we got an email last week from the marketing guy at Ledra, which owns the various Domes properties. They have clearly noted the stream of HFP readers redeeming there! He wanted to let me know that Domes Miramare has opened in Corfu. A picture is below.
The Domes Miramare website is here. Because it is a new property (well, a full refurbishment of an existing hotel) it is currently disproportionately cheap for both cash and points. This is an adults-only property, please note.
As an example, in early August Domes Miramare is €500 per night for cash (good value in Corfu for high-end luxury in August) or just 35,000 Marriott Bonvoy points. It even has the pricier sea view rooms at 35,000 points. This means you’re getting 1.25p per Marriott Bonvoy point which is an excellent result.
Take a look at the Domes Miramare website. It does look impressive (I haven’t been, of course, and for clarity they’re not paying us for writing this) and British Airways flies direct to Corfu. Comments below suggest there isn’t much happening in the immediate area so it is best if you plan to spend most of your time in the resort.
