Were you to arrive by helicopter, landing on their private helipad, the Blue Palace would live up to its name with 142 private guestroom pools, 3 main pools and 2 children’s pools glinting like an sapphire in the southern Greek sunshine. This romantic beachfront resort is nestled on one of the most tranquil private beaches on the famed coast of Elounda on the island of Crete, with iconic views across the water of the relics of historic Spinalonga Island.
The collection of rooms, suites and 2 and 3 bedroom villas take their inspiration from traditional Greek architecture and are generously appointed in terracotta shades, with marble-lined bathrooms, enchanting sea views and many boasting one of those inviting private pools. The magnificent Elounda Spa & Thalassotherapy is famed for its rituals employing seawater straight from the clear Cretan Sea and a panoramic lift will whisk you down to the private beach club where numerous watersports can be enjoyed. An eclectic mix of cuisine awaits across the resort’s 5 restaurants, including the mouth watering Flame steakhouse, and three bars. Good luck tearing the little ones away from the entertaining and engaging kids club to explore the local area, but it is well worth it when you do. And all the while Ultimate Guest Service’s team will make you feel like royalty, well, this is The Blue Palace.
