About Blue Palace

Tucked between the chic port of Elounda and the tiny fishing village of Plaka on the beautiful island of Crete, Blue Palace is a legendary hotel that harmoniously blends into the landscape, with most of the villas, suites and rooms set among aromatic gardens while sharing the same breathtaking views across the private beach toward the glistening sea and Spinalonga Island.


The Blue Palace enjoys a spectacularly unspoiled setting with endless views of the crystal-clear blue Mediterranean waters and a long sweep of white pebble beach. Threaded with wooden walkways for barefoot comfort. Many of the rooms, suites and villas come feature balconies with sea views and even private infinity pools for a tranquil swim day or night. With someone for everyone from honeymooners to families with children, the villas offer plenty of room to stretch out, many with multiple bedrooms and luxurious features like saunas, indoor pools, fireplaces, gardens, outdoor dining and barbecue areas, video game consoles and optional butler service. The property includes three outdoor swimming pools and an indoor pool as well as a full-service Thalassotherapy spa, providing plenty of ways to relax. There are multiple dining options too, with five restaurants, from the fine dining steakhouse Flame to the tavern-style Blue Door, set in a stone fisherman’s home on the water.


Located at seafront on the northern coast of Crete less than a 10-minute walk to the village of Plaka and about a 5-minute drive from Elounda.
