Guests of “The Haven Collection” enjoy a private breakfast with an epic selection of dishes served at a pebble-mosaic courtyard shaded by fragrant jasmines, exclusively reserved for our distinguished guests. There is something unique that makes you feel as if you are invited at a private home, the moment you step in at Anthós Restaurant – the star restaurant of Blue Palace Resort & Spa. A seasonally curated à la carte menu, with Cretan mountain honey, regional cold cuts, famous Cretan Gruyere cheese and celebrated local grapes and figs – just a selection of the indulgent treats that are included – awaits guests at The Haven Breakfast.

There are so many opportunities to celebrate life in Crete; good music, endless dances and the festival culture - under the full moon, next to the sea, within vineyards or on the top of the mountains. With feasts all over the island celebrating religious holidays, weddings or baptisms, there is always an occasion to eat, drink and celebrate life with family and friends.
Come and join us in a unique ritual, the Cretan feast; large bonfires are lit at our private beach for the cooking of the famous “antikristo” lamb – sprinkled in sea salt and slowly cooked for five hours above the fire – while authentic local delicacies will be prepared on the spot. All of these festivities accompanied by the distinct tunes of Cretan lyra. Enjoy this unique cultural and gastronomical experience, while rejoicing in a landscape of breathtaking beauty by the sea and enjoying the unparalleled service of Blue Palace.
Every Friday, from August to September, at Blue Door.
For a truly mesmerizing experience get on board our traditional caique, exclusive for the distinguished guests of Blue Palace Resort and Spa. Travel on the crystal-clear waters around the Mirabello Gulf and unlock some of the most authentic surroundings.
Sailing always makes people hungry, which is why we usually pack generous picnics aboard our beautiful, Traditional Wooden Caique when we take guests on private cruises. Even if you’re only coming aboard for sunset drinks, a breath of sea air will sharpen your appetite for the exquisite canapés served with your champagne. If the breeze is off the land, you will find yourself further seduced by the scents of warm earth, wild thyme, sage, dittany, lavender and citrus groves. Intoxicating, even without the fizz.
This summer at Blue Palace you’ll find live music at many of our restaurants and bars. At Arsenali Lounge Bar, for example, there’s live piano and DJ sets, while at Blue Door you can enjoy live Greek and Cretan traditional music every week. And if you’re dining at Anthós in the evening, listen out for our vocalists performing international music.
'Therino' (open-air cinema) is a much-loved Greek tradition. On warm summer evenings, with the beauty of nature as a backdrop, nothing beats watching a movie on the beach, under the stars. Lie back on your comfy beach lounger and immerse yourself in a silver-screen classic, while sipping a cocktail and enjoying pop-corn, to round off an unforgettable cinematic experience.
