Hotel Overview


Blue Palace is situated on the popular Elounda coast, just an hour’s drive from Heraklion airport, where you’ll be treated to uninterrupted views across to the historic island of Spinalonga.

Rooms at Blue Palace

There are over 200 contemporary rooms at Blue Palace, including charming classic Cretan-style rooms, elegant bungalows, exclusive suites and private villas overlooking the sea and Spinalonga. The suites are perfect for couples craving a little more privacy, and have their own private pools. For families we recommend the two-bedroom deluxe suites, which have their own garden, private pools and mountain views - or even the three-bedroom Royal Blue Villa, which offers the ultimate home-from-home indulgence. Guests of suites and villas are offered prime breakfast spots at the Olea restaurant, overlooking the bay, and have exclusive access to the Haven on the beach, where they can enjoy complimentary baskets of Cretan goodies and the services of an elite beach crew.

Food and facilities

Blue Palace has no less than five restaurants and three bars, with diverse cuisine that ranges from traditional Greek specialities to celebrated Asian fusion. We love the Greek breakfasts of yoghurt, Cretan honey and local 'apaki' smoked ham, and we're a particularly big fan of the delicious steaks at Flame, which features organic produce from local farmers. In the evening, linger over cocktails at the beautiful Arsenali Lounge, overlooking the Aegean.

Activities at Blue Palace

Blue Palace has a private white-pebbled beach with a beach bar, a watersports and dive centre, a fitness centre and the exclusive Elounda spa, which offers soothing thalassotherapy treatments. As well as the Isola Beach Club, set among olive trees, where you can chill out to the sounds of the DJ, there's also a fantastic supervised kids club, catering for children from three to 12 years old.
