The Haven Collection is redefining luxury, embracing personal attention; a world of refined Greek lifestyle, private yet perfectly located, unfolding around a cove with cobalt waters.
Blue Palace is a place where wild beauty meets unrivaled island style. A place where time seems to stand still; where guests can sense an older, truer, more timeless Greece. Between the tiny fishing village of Plaka and the increasingly chic port of Elounda, lies a patchwork of pink-hued stone and earthy tones, flowing into the landscape.
The Haven Collection is the essence of redefined luxury. Personal recommendations and attention, the warm heartfelt hospitality Greeks like to offer each other, our inspiration behind every moment and our commitment to an authentic Greek summer experience.
Focusing on life-lasting authentic adventures, embracing Crete’s history & our local culture, we share our secrets with our guests and delicious fresh food produced mainly in our garden and at local farms; and we wish them to have an immediate feeling of having arrived in your natural home, to be personally looked after.
Blue Palace’s suites and villas – The Haven Collection - are dotted throughout the resort among fragrant gardens, with incomparable views of the Aegean Sea and Spinalonga Island, a National Monument and UNESCO nominated heritage site. A blend of the most compelling private spaces, designed exclusively for discerning travelers, with an array of exclusive services and personal recommendations.
On an island with enough fascinating history, architecture, culture, and outdoor activities to fill several lifetimes, guests are often surprised to find themselves slow to leave the property. This is no coincidence.
For a start, the welcome here is in the kindest and most noble traditions of Cretan hospitality. The gentleness and the ambiance produce an immediate feeling of arriving at your home away from home.
Dream beaches are rare in reality, but the private shore at Blue Palace is one of them. The expansive beach of natural white pebbles is furnished with generous and discreetly spaced private decks. The Beach Haven is reserved exclusively for guests of The Haven Collection. Here, the elite beach service crew will hand-deliver your personalized beach basket of complimentary goodies. Each of the private villas even has its own private gazebo, so for peace and pampering, it is hard to beat.
The Isola Beach Club, is where visiting DJs weave the musical spells of the moment, conspiring with top mixologists to deliver the Cretan beach experience at its most alluring.
Our beautiful, traditional wooden caïque is a gem, and every voyage she makes is part of a bespoke experience. This is actually the kind of hospitality Greeks like to offer each other; a day out on the water, in good company, with exceptional food and wine. Private cruises for our guests are unique affairs. You might want a day snorkeling off a deserted beach, with a barbecue for lunch. You might choose a sunset cruise around Spinalonga, with a breath of sea air to sharpen your appetite for the exquisite canapes served with your champagne.
Food in Greece is a lifestyle, an eternal way of life. For Greeks, Crete is the unrivaled culinary capital, noted for its excellent natural produce and for its heritage of inspired cuisine. We embrace the Mediterranean diet and we honor our land, and its produce, to find the perfect purest ingredients. At Blue Palace, we take top-flight cooking to the next level, where homecooked is not just a trend – it’s a ritual.
A new gastronomy concept emerges at Anthós—this will be your ritualistic, celebratory evening highlighting traditional Cretan cuisine helmed by Creative Consultant, Chef Athinagoras Kostakos.

Traditional Cretan cuisine truly shines at Blue Door Taverna, a lovingly restored fisherman’s shelter where the catch of the day is cooked over an open grill. It’s just a stroll along the beach, and a million miles away from a typical hotel restaurant.
