Blue Palace Resort & Spa

Elounda, Crete

Blues, in hues from aqua to azure, adorn the stunning architecture of this Greek getaway. The main building houses some of the 251 refined guest quarters as well as a handful of gourmet restaurants; four villas along the cliffs have private infinity-edge pools. The spa includes three thalassotherapy pools, Turkish baths, and open-air or ocean-view treatment rooms and pavilions. The sun-filled space plays host to a range of relaxing and invigorating treatments, including such sea-based services as algae body wraps, marine facials, and seawater hydromassage baths.
