This season, we’re introducing a brand-new breakfast experience available for the guests of the Island Luxury Suites, our Private Villas, as well as Marriott Bonvoy™ Platinum Elite, Titanium Elite & Ambassador Elite members. At a pebble-mosaic courtyard shaded by fragrant jasmines, guests will enjoy breakfast as if they are invited at a private home. A selection of artisanal products and delicious breakfast favorites presented on a range of porcelain dishes, that are designed for Blue Palace. A curated a la carte menu highlights the feeling of an old-fashioned hospitality and includes Cretan mountain honey; regional cold cuts; famous Cretan gruyere cheese and celebrated local grapes and figs – unsurprisingly only when in season.
This dinner alone makes the trip to this coast of Crete worthwhile! Once an old fisherman’s stone house, this culinary treasure features well-kept family recipes, signature seafood and fish dishes. For travelers, sampling the catch of the day, is one of the most satisfying ways to feel like a local. At a land that extends along the coast, with fishermen from the neighboring harbors delivering their catch daily, Blue Door fairly claims the title of the all-time classic Greek holiday spot; right by the water. Chef Athinagoras Kostakos curates the menu here and showcases the best of the traditional Greek cuisine, with an emphasis on fish. A true highlight is the salt-baked fish, to be savored with a variety of home-made salsas presented at your table. And Harris, the taverna’s host, will welcome you for lunch or dinner with the traditional tray packed with Greek meze and serve you the best raki of the island to feel absolutely a Cretan at heart!
Our new culinary concept celebrates the new breed of Greek cusine! We invite guests to sit by our organic garden and enjoy the process. It isn’t often that you can watch an entire cooking team in their open-air kitchen as they prepare an elaborate menu. You can watch; you can smell; you can enjoy the unsurpassed views to Spinalonga while sitting back and trying some of the best wines produced in Greece. This is an experience! Celebrated chef Athinagoras Kostakos shapes his gastronomy around ingredients sourced from the resort’s own organic kitchen garden and regional farms to deliver delicious sustainably minded dishes that celebrate Greek tradition with a modern twist. There’s something about enjoying a meal with a view of the great outdoors that makes everything taste more vibrant – the smells and sensations of the sea, the air and open fire are devoured as much as what’s on the plate!
‘Therino’, is an open air cinema and an old time favorite of everyone in Greece.
With the beauty of nature as backdrop, in the warm summer evenings, nothing beats an under the stars, movie-at-the-beach experience. Just sit back in your comfy beach lounger and watch a good old classic, while siping amazing cocktails. Screenings come with extra treats - small sweet and savory bites -that will make you want to indulge even more. A trully Greek summer experience!
At an enchanting setting augmented by the breathtaking view of the sparkling sea and Spinalonga island, guests can enjoy the music of our resident DJ, a curated list of our top cocktails and sushi prepared live by our celebrated sushi chefs. Make sure to reserve the front row and enjoy a perfectly relaxed evening.
