Gastronomy

The Creative Consultant Chef Athinagoras Kostakos in collaboration with Blue Palace’s Executive Chef Alexandros Lefkaditis, for one more season showcase their vision for quality food. With menus inspired by the unique characteristics of the surrounding area and focus on purity, authenticity and freshness, together the chefs are set to cook up a storm across the resort’s kitchens.

Spa & Fitness

Lose yourself in a place where luxury meets with wild beauty and unrivalled island style. A place where time seems to stand still; a place where you can sense an older, truer, more timeless Greece. This is the setting of Blue Palace, a setting of wild grandeur.

Island Escape and Picnic

Our traditional caique will take you to crystal clear waters travelling around the Mirabello Gulf. Swim and sunbathe at remote beaches and unlock some of the most authentic surroundings. Our chef prepares a mouth-watering lunch with a selection of homemade dishes or snacks; fresh bread and Greek wine - all packed in a traditional picnic basket!

The Haven Experience

The Haven Experience has all the ingredients for a luxurious Greek island vacation: bespoke decor, privacy and space, sparkling infinity pools, attentive services, emblematic sea views; all combined with the resort’s amazing private beach experience at The Haven and the Havenly Breakfast at Anthós Restaurant. Individually designed for sophisticated well-travelled guests who appreciate old world hospitality and the feeling of being a guest at someone's private sanctuary.

The guest accommodations at Blue Palace include 52 suites and four private villas, with 142 private pools. These are all designed for people who want to spend a lot of time relaxing in their own private space, so they are generously proportioned, exquisitely decorated and offer the kind of profound, understated luxury that is relaxing in the way that mere extravagance can never achieve. Guests in our suites and villas enjoy an array of exclusive services, including private seating and private menus at breakfast. Private verandas, gardens and pools are designed to enhance the lovely views and the feeling of freedom. The tranquil aesthetic in each individually-designed space evokes calm, and yet energises. Natural materials, eclectic pieces of art, a palette drawn from the surrounding environment and a style seasoned with historical detail, all combine to make your suite or villa a uniquely compelling place to be.

How often is it that you find yourself swimming in crystal clear waters and gazing at an island, only a few hundred meters away, which is an official nomination for World Heritage Site by UNESCO? Discover "The Island", a circular fortress rising impressively from a rocky hillside, overlooking the vast open seas. Just across from the majestic location of Elounda, lies Spinalonga, which in Greek means "long thorn", a place full of history and memories, that reflects on a small scale Crete’s amazing past.
