The Phāea Blue Palace on Crete features 47 bungalows and suites incorporating a colour palette of earthy tones and textures, eclectic artwork and designer furnishings.

The crown jewel is the three-bedroom Phāea Blue Villa which features a large heated pool, vast indoor space and opulent amenities. New additions for 2024 are a private chef and a butler who are on hand to ensure that all the guests’ needs are catered for.

As the largest of the Greek islands, Crete presents a diversity of memorable settings that includes mountain ranges, ​ gorges and valleys.

Blue Palace rests between the celebrated coast of Crete’s elite Elounda and the relics of storied Spinalonga Island.

The new hotel is now more than ever focusing on Phāea’s pillars of sustainability, ​sophistication and soulfulness, with the integrity of the Cretan soul always at the forefront.

Inspired by architecture and design, a chic beach club and sustainable local gastronomy, the hotel provides a destination within a destination.

Farmers’ Feast Pop-up

Celebrating farm-to-table eating and the best in homegrown produce, the Phāea Farmers Feast experience brings guests closer to nature and promotes a sense of discovery on the property’s own doorstep.

Guests can join the Blue Palace’s Executive Chef in the hotel’s organic garden, hand-picking fresh ingredients while learning about the ​Phāea Farmers initiative and the joys of growing food firsthand.

After harvesting their own ingredients, ​guests will take part in a creative cooking experience under the guidance of the Chef.


All Aboard

Experience the unspoiled natural landscapes of Crete aboard a traditional Greek fishing boat – a caique – as you cruise around the Mirabello Gulf.
