Blue Palace offers a private beach and view of Spinalonga island, between the small fishing village of Plaka and Elounda Harbor.

This fabled island has numerous sights for you to discover: the ancient Minoan palaces of Knossos, Phaestos, Zakros, Malia, Dikteon (the cave where allegedly Zeus was born), the Lassithi Plateau with its picturesque villages, or the monasteries of Arkadi and Toplou from the 14th and 15th centuries. These destinations will show you the fascinating history of Crete. Spinalonga is an island and living national museum. It’s just half a mile from the hotel beach, making it a short boat ride away.

Heraklion Airport is 72 kilometers away, and you can reach it in one hour by car.

The three pools, one of which is a saltwater pool, invite you to cool off. The two additional children’s pools are perfect for families. Sunbeds and umbrellas are available for sunbathing on the beach’s private decks or in the garden area.

Every day in the Greek summer feels like a festival. Go out to sea in a traditional fishing boat called a caique. Visit bays that you can only reach by water. Go diving, do yoga, enjoy canapés and Cretan wines, or let the chef grill the fish you just caught. Party like a local at a Cretan festival, enjoy family recipes, and dance to the tunes of the Cretan lyre. Enjoy hiking, biking, sailing, or relaxing under the stars with live music on the beach.

The 251 rooms are divided into 52 suites, four private villas, and 142 rooms with a private pool.
