A resort that unfurls before you with elegance and inspiration, Blue Palace captures the essence of all that is exquisite on the island of Crete. From views that leave you breathless to a culinary emphasis befitting this island of milk and honey.
The Blue Palace resort sprawls, in the best sense of the word. In the island fashion, it casually falls along the cliffside overlooking the Gulf of Elounda and the beaches below. It is designed for breathing room, and the sleepy fishing village of Plaka leaves you undisturbed, though charmed.
Every inch a beach getaway, the hotel emphasizes the outdoors. Indoors are not overly appointed, letting the sea views take center stage. Modern jetsetters will have all the creature comforts they expect, but will undoubtedly feel the urge to get out into the Mediterranean air as much as possible.
The hotel has a wide variety of room categories, with pool or sea views. Our clients benefit from the extensive knowledge of our Ker & Downey luxury travel consultants to help them find the ideal accommodation for their travel style. At Blue Palace, the bungalows, suites, and villas each offer luxury amenities. The Grand Villa and the Royal Blue Villa are the hotel’s most exclusive options, each with a private pool and butler service.
Crete is known throughout Greece as a true “foodie” destination, and Blue Palace maximizes the culinary experience for its guests. Choose from five dining options on site for an endless menu of delights. Blue Door is a beachfront “taverna” serving up traditional Greek fare cooked over an open grill. Guests can try the ritualistic Creten feast here in the gorgeous seascape surrounds.
Warmly lit, barrel-vault ceilings at Flame suggest elegant steak and wine pairings are on the menu, and indeed they are. Ingredients are locally sourced and accompanied by live local music. Asia Blue offers a variety of Asian dishes prepared in an open demonstration kitchen, and Isola focuses on another side of Mediterranean cuisine with Italian emphasis. The hotel’s main restaurant, Olea, offers an expansive menu of local and international foods for any taste so that homesick appetites can start the day with familiar breakfast foods.
Ultimate tranquility can be found at the award-winning Elounda Spa and Thalassotherapy, which refers to the use of sea water in healing treatments. Choose from an exotic menu of treatments whose calming effects are only topped by the serene views. The spa also includes children’s services. Yoga classes and a fitness center are available to those who prefer a more active relaxation.Request Information
