Crete – Luxury weekend at Blue Palace

Where? Blue Palace Resort and Spa

When? June 2016

We flew with? Aegean Airways.

Why? I was very lucky to be invited out to Crete by Blue Palace to attend the launch of luxury swimwear brand Melissa Odabash‘s pop up beach boutique at the hotel, to celebrate the opening of their new beach club Isola. The trip was amazing with a super fun itinerary including, sailing, wine tasting, sunbathing, spa treatments and lots of eating and drinking. We even managed to cram in a birthday champagne breakfast. Keep scrolling to see my photo diary of my Aegean adventure.

Crete holiday Bonnie Style Traveller

We took a day trip to the beautiful, abandoned island of Spinalonga, which is the pretty island you can see directly opposite the hotel. It was the romantic setting for the the novel and film ‘The Island’.

 Evening out Blue Palace Crete

After dark: The Blue Palace had several restaurants on site so we had a chance to get dressed up and head out for dinner each evening. My favourite was the Traditional Greek Restaurant, on the edge of the sea with beautiful views out to Spinalonga Island.

Wafting around in my Anthropologie Kimono. I love the ochre colours of the buildings at the Blue Palace accented by the turquoise of the pools. Such a beautiful location for shots.
