Blue Palace

The Blue Palace Resort & Spa in Crete is nothing if not appropriately named. Blue skies, blue seas and shimmering blue pools lend the resort a soothing, ethereal quality. When the sun sets over the island of Spinalonga, head for the bar - the perfect vista to take it all in. There's an uncanny blueness to this sleek Cretan getaway; one that almost suggests a full-scale recreation of the mythic halls and palaces of Mount Olympus. Accordingly, guests at the Blue Palace Resort & Spa are pampered as though they really might be capable of hurling thunderbolts from the sky. Nowhere is this more evident than at Blue Palace's world-class Elounda Spa & Thalassotherapy. Suites, bungalows and villas comprise this Greek island resort's 251 accommodations, tastefully rendered in blush palettes traditional to the island of Crete. Five restaurants serve a diverse array of cuisine - Mediterranean, French, Asian, and Italian - while two bars (and one lounge) take care of the rest.

Casa Delfino

Chania was once a major sea-port for the Venetians, who controlled the eastern Mediterranean from here until the 17th-century. Their beautifully-built harbor walls, merchants’ homes, arsenals and warehouses have survived to make the town a delightful base for any trip to western Crete, and a cut above any other Greek city. The Casa Delfino matches this beauty in its 22 tastefully restored suites and apartments, all housed deep within a 17th-century mansion. Take a few steps off the bustling seafront and you will find yourself in a cobbled courtyard oozing a peacefulness and style rare in Greek hotels. Marble tables and fer forgé chairs line an arched portico, while potted geraniums, tall cactuses and pebble-mosaics add color. The spa is a sanctuary where you can retreat in absolute privacy.

Conte Marino Villas
