Enjoy the Best of Crete at Blue Palace, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa

This 5-star luxury resort is in perfect harmony with the natural Cretan landscape, with stunning views of Mirabello Bay and Spinalonga Island.

On the shores of Mirabello Bay, nestled in a blessed terrain of wild beauty, lies Blue Palace, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa. A mosaic of pink-hued stone and earthy tones, the resort fits naturally into the landscape, blending seamlessly with the unspoilt nature that surrounds it.

Here, you can discover the pleasures of Crete, its flavors and fragrances, its ancient myths and culinary heritage, while enjoying the comfort and luxury of a 5-star resort that has everything you could ask for. From the elegant suites and villas, you’ll enjoy an uninterrupted view of the sea and the uninhabited island of Spinalonga, officially nominated to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

For your meals, enjoy heavenly breakfasts in the outdoor pebble-mosaic courtyard, which evokes the feeling of being in a private home, and at night, opt for a Cretan feast by the sea, or try the contemporary Greek cuisine at the Anthós restaurant.

It’s tempting to spend your days just gazing at the incredible view from the infinity pools, however, there’s plenty more to do: visit the state-of-the-art spa, the fitness center and the beauty salon, play a game of tennis at the tennis courts, or pick a fun activity at the water sports center.

Spend your days outside, getting whisked aboard the resort’s traditional caique to sail in the crystal-blue waters of the Aegean Sea. Then, celebrate the Greek summer like the locals often do, with movie nights under the stars.
