Blue Palace, Crete

Quite a few hotels in many different countries rejoice under the title of ‘Palace’, but very few deserve the name as richly as the Blue Palace on the coast of Elounda. Make it part of your luxury holiday to Greece and not only will you be treated like visiting royalty, you’ll also be surrounded by a truly regal environment.

The guest rooms, for example, are very spacious and individually decorated with a burst of inspiration that combines classic Cretan motifs with modern exuberance. Most of them have their own infinity-edge pools and verandas that offer you the most sweeping views of the aquamarine Aegean Sea. And then there is the spa, situated on the private beach, plus a choice of no less than five different restaurants…
