Spinalonga Island rivals Knossos as one of the main attractions of Crete – in addition to The Blue Palace of course. Just 15 minutes by boat from the hotel, Spinalonga is not actually a natural island and was built as a fort attached to the northern coastline, but was then separated to make it more inaccessible to invaders. It has a wonderful and interesting history and has been featured in several films, notably ‘Who pays the Ferryman’, and more recently a book ‘The Island’ that has been adapted into a TV series.
We can also make twin island combinations, and we think the idea of staying at The Mystique in Santorini, with its fantastic views, for a few days before travelling by high speed ferry on the short crossing to The Blue Palace would be a wonderfully romantic option. Ask us for suggestions and we are sure we can come up with something totally unique for you.Chic Check – Blue Palace is perfectly chic. Stylish, instantly elegant, in a delightful minimalist way, that allows nature to compete for your deserved attention. Given the hotel is built on several levels with deliberately uneven pathways, it would not be ideal for those with mobility problems. The option of pre-purchasing half board is worth considering as this allows you to dine in any of the restaurants within the resort (supplement may apply to some items).
