Combine the elegant architecture and pampering hospitality of a visionary resort with the authentic sense of place, and you get the Blue Palace Resort & Spa on the sunny Elounda coast of Crete. The luxury beachfront resort embraces the charm of the island and calmly engages all your senses -- every arch and window enhances the island and sea views, the breeze warms your skin and the piquant aromas of traditional Greek cuisine mingle with the fresh salt air. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can scuba dive, golf, play tennis, hit the fitness center or water-ski.
