Resorts | The Blue Palace, Crete




I have been obsessed with the Blue Palace in Crete for almost as long as I've been obsessed with hotels. Set on the coast of Elounda in Crete, the luxury beachfront property offers emblematic views to the relics of Spinalonga Island. If I ever make it there, the Royal Blue Villa is where I'll be staying: a majestic three-bedroom residence unrivalled elsewhere on the island, each bedroom has an en suite marble bathroom, some with their own fireplace and a private veranda with gardens. But, as you know, for me, it's the pool that makes or breaks a hotel, and the Blue Palace has pools aplenty. The Royal Blue Villa has a private one but the pool at the Arsenali Lounge Bar is to die for, the azure waters seeming to melt into the very horizon...

WOW, these are some amazing locations! ;)

Thanks for commenting on my blog, and just to answer your question: you probably haven't heard of Guliver shoes because it is Croatian (that's where I'm from) store that carries all kinds of Italian brands :)
