Ex-Onassis Resort Reopens in Greece’s Corfu (photos)



Α luxury resort in Corfu originally built for the Onassis family in the late 1960s has been renovated and will operate under Marriott’s Luxury Collection brand from Aug. 1.

Originally designed by Greek 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.
