Blue Palace Crete-8

This July I had the pleasure of visiting The Blue Palace Hotel in C, a perfect summer getaway. Mornings tended to begin like the above ^ with an infinity pool on our terrace, room service got taken to the next level. Whilst room service happened (on the first morning of three) we were unaware of the fantastic breakfast that the hotel offered in the main restaurant so didn’t suffer from any Fomo at all. Whilst feasting to our hearts content, it was the perfect opportunity to cream up (oil up in my case) and begin to take in some rays, recover from breakfast and prepare for our first long day on the beach (life is tough).

The Blue Palace Hotel was entirely self sufficient with four amazing restaurants, Greek, Italian, Asian and continental so we were very spoilt for choice. It was my first time in Greece for about ten years, and it was amazing to revive my tamed obsession for olive oil, tabbouleh and anything aubergine based. If you follow my instagram you’ll know that I’m partial to a food pic or two, so I have kept you updated with what we ate throughout the blog post as it was one of the highlights of the trip along with many more.

Whilst tanning, chilling, eating and sipping on Whispering Angel the rose of this summer, we enjoyed a swedish massage at the spa which was highly rejuvenating. The hotel staff at The Blue Palace were very accommodating and seem to have every need fulfilled to a really high standard. It was great having everything you could possibly need in the vicinity, including a Melissa Odabash pop up shop to suffice any retail urges. The three day trip was perfect, although I week would have been just as great!
