Overview

Blue Palace Elounda, a Luxury Collection Resort, gently cascades down a hillside towards a pebbled beach on Crete’s northern coast. The modern suites and bungalows are dotted throughout the landscaped grounds, and most accommodation boasts a private pool with breathtaking views across the Aegean Sea and Spinalonga Island. The resort houses excellent facilities for both families and couples, including a supervised kids’ club, three swimming pools and two kids' pools, five restaurants and an immaculate spa.

The resort stretches across 143 acres on the north east coast of Crete. From the pebbly beach, you can enjoy spectacular views of Spinalonga, a small historical island which is five minutes away by boat. Meanwhile, the seafront tavernas and traditional ships in the small fishing village of Plaka, in Lasithi, are five minutes away on foot. Elounda is less than three miles away, home to a bustling harbour and the incredible ancient underwater city of Olous, while Aghios Nikolaos offers vibrant nightlife around 10 miles away. Heraklion Airport is 45 miles away and Chania International Airport is 135 miles west of the property.

The sophisticated rooms are decorated in earthy tones and natural materials, such as wood and stone. Beds are dressed in 320-thread-count pure cotton sheets; you can also expect free Premium W-Fi; modern marble bathrooms feature a separate bathtub and shower; and floor-to-ceiling windows open onto a private balcony or terrace. For the best views, select a Superior Bungalow with a sea view private pool, or upgrade to an Island Luxury Suite or Two Bedroom Suite to enjoy breathtaking Aegean Sea vistas, a private heated plunge pool and separate bedroom and living areas. These suites also offer select privileges, such as a private in-room check-in, dedicated concierge service, private daily breakfast and access to an exclusive beach area with complimentary treats and beachside service.

Other facilities

The three inviting outdoor pools include a fabulous beach pool with underwater music, a heated pool next to the Votsalo Lounge and the Arsenali Pool, which boasts incredible views across the coast. There are also two kids’ pool situated near the beach pool, including a large, shallow pool that’s ideal for babies and younger children. Otherwise, take a gentle stroll to the pebbled beach – or ride on the resort’s glass funicular – to the wooden decks with sun loungers and thatch umbrellas. The Isola Beach Club is set further back from the beach, among the verdant olive trees, offering a relaxed ambience, light meals and refreshing drinks.

The Elounda Spa sits directly on the beach, boasting serene views across the Aegean Sea. It features therapy baths, a thalassotherapy pool and a marble steam room. You can book a wide choice of treatments here for a supplementary charge – including couples’ massages, anti-ageing facials, thalassotherapy treatments, locally-inspired rituals and special spa packages for parents and children. There’s also a modern fitness centre with Technogym equipment and complimentary fitness classes.

Families can enjoy the playground and a supervised kids’ club for 3- to 12-year-olds. The whole family can also watch movies under the stars at the open-air theatre, Therino, or book a range of family-friendly excursions to local towns, historical sites and places of natural beauty. Meanwhile, adults can enjoy yoga sessions, Cretan dance classes, wine tastings and tennis on the floodlit courts. Water sports, bicycle hire and babysitting service are also available in resort, subject to an additional charge.

Dining information

The five restaurants serve high-quality Cretan and international dishes. Start your day on the sea view terrace at Olea, where you can savour an American buffet breakfast and cooked-to-order egg dishes, accompanied with Champagne. There’s also a traditional Cretan table here, offering island specialities, such as kalitsounia, sweet pastries, small pies, yogurts, honey, cheeses and fresh fruits. In the evening, they serve a variety of buffet dishes with a seasonal Mediterranean flair.

Open for lunch and dinner, the Blue Door serves Cretan seafood specialities in a restored fisherman's stone house, right beside the shore, while Isola specialises in Italian cuisine made with fresh local ingredients. You can also stop by the Arsenali Lounge Bar for a cocktail or iced coffee, before heading to the Isola Beach Club for a light lunch.

In the evenings, enjoy an al fresco dining experience at the hotel’s organic garden restaurant, Anthós. Watch chefs prepare your meal in the open-air kitchen, while you sit back with a glass of local wine, admiring views of Spinalonga Island. Alternatively, you can feast on Asian-fusion delicacies at Asia Deep Blue, where the inspiring menu incorporates delicious dumplings, bao buns and classic sushi favourites.

The free Half Board upgrade offer includes the dinner buffet at Olea restaurant only. You may upgrade to the dine-around experience for a daily supplement payable locally. Otherwise the standard Half Board package includes the dine-around experience, where you can choose between lunch at either Blue Door or Isola, or dinner at any of the a la carte restaurants. Select items are at a supplement. Beverages are excluded.
