Rain is something you don't normally look forward to on a holiday, except possibly at the Domes of Elounda, a new hotel on the north coast of Crete where one of the architecturally inspired pleasures is the rainwater-style shower splashing down from beneath the high, domed roof of a couple-size circular Jacuzzi. Domes, as one might imagine, are a design element throughout the resort, which has the look of a Mediterranean village. Another visual constant are the earth tones throughout the 80 suites, all in two-story buildings and all but the junior versions with an hot tub as well. On a quiet stretch of gray-sand beach north of Elounda Village, the resort looks across the water toward the nearby islet of Spinalonga, the setting for British author Victoria Hislop's The Island.
