Why you'll love this resort...

  • Heart-warming hospitality and an authentic Greek experience
  • All rooms open to extended verandas with views of the Aegean Sea and Spinalonga Island
  • Home to one of Crete’s longest beaches, lined with olive trees and featuring private decks and beach service
  • Menus inspired by the unique characteristics of the surrounding area and focus on authenticity

With its commanding and impressive arches, this resort's classical architecture is almost as captivating as its mesmerising views. For total indulgence, ask your Travel Specialist about a bungalow with private pool.

Whether you choose to arrive by land transfer or by air to the island's very own helipad, you'll soon realise that this haven offers the ultimate in privacy, luxury and exceptional personal service.

Blue Palace is a favourite with couples, families and spa lovers. The resort cascades down the hillside towards the beach, terraced accommodations all face the sea and feature spacious verandas, many boasting their own private plunge pools. Inspired Greek architecture with terracotta colours is delightfully combined with the endless blue reflected from over one hundred and forty private pools.

Part of a large group of hotels, the resort has free WiFi in all rooms, three main swimming pools, two heated freshwater and one seawater pool (one with underwater music).

Soothe your senses at the magnificent Elounda Spa & Thalassotherapy, a serene hideaway by the sea, offering an extensive list of signature treatments and programmes as well as Turkish steam bath, Jacuzzi's, Thalassotherapy pools and gym. A funicular will transport you from the main resort down to the 200-metre pebble beach where there are expansive grass areas and a sprawling wooden deck.

Dining at the Blue Palace is a sublime experience. Fresh ingredients and authentic cuisine will inspire the senses, whilst theme nights offer a chance to enjoy the five restaurants at their best. The resort has a choice of two bars and the Isola Beach Club. The quaint fishing village of Plaka is a few moments walk away where there are a number of local restaurants and shops.
