Overlooking the sparkling blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea & opposite the isle of Spinalonga with its medieval fortress - dating back to the Venetians & Turks, conquerors of Crete - the Blue Palace Resort & Spa boasts both breathtaking views & charming local ambiance in the neighboring fishing village of Plaka.
Designwise, the 251 room hotel - a mix of bungalows, suites & private villas - takes its cues locally with blush-colour walls found in many a Cretan home, and gardens planted with olive, locust & palm trees.
