Crete, the mythical birthplace of Europe and Zeus, the thunder god, has long been an enchanting destination with its crystal-clear waters, white pebble beaches, and majestic mountainscapes. Steeped in history and natural beauty, the island is set to welcome a new chapter in its legacy with the introduction of Rosewood Blue Palace, marking Rosewood Hotels & Resorts‘ grand entrance into Greece.
A Sense of Place
Rosewood Blue Palace is not just a luxury resort; it’s a thoughtful reincarnation of the beloved Blue Palace, seamlessly integrated into the charming surroundings between the fishing village of Plaka and the port of Elounda. Embracing Rosewood’s guiding philosophy, A Sense of Place®, the resort aims to offer guests an immersive experience that connects them to Crete’s unique culture and history. The chic and timeless backdrop sets the stage for an unforgettable retreat.
Elevated Seclusion and Bespoke Service
With 154 rooms and suites, 85 featuring private pools, Rosewood Blue Palace promises elevated seclusion for those seeking a truly intimate experience. The resort’s comprehensive renovation, designed by the acclaimed Grecian firm K-Studio, pays homage to Cretan tradition and identity. The intuitive approach to bespoke service and experiential programming ensures that every guest’s needs are met with the utmost care.
A highlight of Rosewood Blue Palace is its diverse dining program, featuring six restaurants and bars. Renowned Greek-born, London-based interior designer Afroditi Krassa brings her expertise to create spaces for three of these establishments. Guests can indulge in culinary delights from specialty restaurants, a beach club, and an all-day restaurant sourcing fresh produce from local purveyors and the on-site organic garden.
As a luxury wellness escape, Rosewood Blue Palace introduces Asaya, Rosewood’s holistic well-being concept. The resort boasts a fitness center, movement studio, yoga pavilion, and dedicated areas for hydrotherapy treatments. Three outdoor pools, with panoramic ocean views, allow guests to bask in the island’s majestic tranquility.
