Phāea Blue Palace Joins Small Luxury Hotels of the World


A sapphire set into the rugged coastline of Crete, nestled amidst the azure waters, Phaea Blue Palace lies between the bijou fishing village of Plaka and elegant port of Elounda. Looking out across its own private beach, unrivalled views of Spinalonga Island are all that lie between you and an endlessly blue Mediterranean horizon. Balancing a unique sense of place with authentic Greek hospitality, this boutique hotel warmly welcomes travellers to the birthplace of Zeus for a truly transcendent experience.

Indulge in unmistakably Greek rooms and suites, reflecting a relaxed yet refined island aesthetic. Select a deluxe bungalow or island luxury suite and bask in the pure, natural light of the island, finding peace in the authentic décor, designed with a touch of Hellenic flair. The hotel’s bungalows and suites offer private pools with endless Aegean views, while the Royal Blue Villa features a vast indoor sanctuary and a private heated pool, providing unparalleled luxury, with a private chef and butler to ensure your every need is anticipated and catered to.

From balmy beach days to coastal cruises aboard the hotel’s traditional wooden caique, exploring the Mirabello Gulf, sink into a culture of relaxion and adventure. Gastronomic delights await at every turn, from the field-to-table Phaea Farmers Feast pop-up restaurant, where guests dine around a communal table in the organic garden, to refined Greek cuisine at Anthós and well-guarded family recipes at the Blue Door Taverna, set in a traditional fisherman’s stone cottage. Don’t miss a panoramic aperitivo ritual at Votsalo bar, or Plan Bee events, where you’ll tour the hotel’s beehives, before experiencing a mini-harvesting and organic honey tasting session.
