Majestic and elegant, the Blue Palace, A Luxury Collection Resort occupies a hillside overlooking the stunning Mirabello Bay. Situated just outside the fishing village of Plaka on Crete’s eastern coast, this fabulous resort seamlessly combines Grecian splendour with the very best of service, hospitality and comfort.
Living the high life
There are a number of different suites and bungalows available to choose from at this impressive resort. Bungalows boast marble bathrooms, mini bars and private balconies or terraces, and you can opt for one with its own heated pool. The spacious suites each feature separate living areas and infinity-edged pools. For complete luxury, the newly refurbished Island Luxury Suites include oval bathtubs or Jacuzzis, secluded patios with sunbeds, and direct beach access.
The resort has five exceptional restaurants, each serving a range of irresistible dishes. Enjoy themed, buffet-style cuisine at the resort’s main restaurant, Olea, or experience classic Greek favourites as you dine al fresco at the Blue Door Taverna. Alternatively, sample delectable steaks at Flame, authentic Asian dishes at Asia Blue or excellent Italian fare beside the beach at Isola. In the evenings, relax in the stylish Votsalo Bar or admire the exquisite sea views as you sip cocktails in the Arsenali Lounge.
Relaxation and adventure
Pamper yourself at the resort’s beachfront spa, which features an indoor heated pool together with two Thalassotherapy pools, two Turkish hammams and a Jacuzzi. Indulge in one of the traditional treatments on offer, such as an authentic, olive oil massage. If you can tear yourself away from the beautiful infinity-edged pool and white pebbled beach, the resort provides endless fun activities for your enjoyment. Cruise the bay on a Caique fishing boat, or why not try Cretan wine tasting? Join a sunrise yoga class or water aerobics session or choose from a vast range of watersports.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
