Blue Palace, A Luxury Collection Resort, Elounda Crete, has assigned La Collection by Lea Seguier & Craig Farrell, as its representative in Australia and New Zealand.
The largest of all the Greek Islands, Crete is a summertime playground, featuring pristine beaches, great weather, great food and wine, hiking tracks and hundreds of ancient sites to explore.
The property offers 251 rooms, suites and villas with panoramic views of the Aegean Sea and Spinalonga Island. There are four villas that make up The Haven Collection, accommodation up to five-guests and ranging in size from 72 sqm to a massive 220 sqm (The Grand Villa, pictured below). For the ultimate decadance, the Royal Blue Villa (290 sqm) accommodates up to 8 guests spread across a standalone residence that boasts three bedrooms, ample indoor living spaces, outdoor facilities and dining areas and private swimming pools and uncompromising privacy.
Craig Farrell, Director of La Collection recently visited the property along with Virtuoso travel advisors from Australia, said he was truly impressed with the property.
“This is more than a luxury hotel that has attracted celebrities and royalty for decades. At Blue Palace it’s possible to be completely immersed in the local culture, something that is important for many Australian and New Zealand travellers.”
“One of the in-house dining options is a traditional Greek Tavern called Blue Door, located in an old fisherman’s hut by the sea. And minutes from the hotel there are so many activities on offer and historical sites that the Blue Palace team will help bring to life. It is a privilege to stay in such a place.
“We are very excited to partner with Blue Palace and help our trade partners send many more people to this part of the world,” Farrell remarked.
Katina Papadomanolakis, Director of Sales and Marketing, Phaea Resorts (which operates Blue Palace) said the hospitality company was thrilled to partner with Lea and Craig.
“The Australian and New Zealand market is very important to us and having local representation is something we have considered for some time. La Collection is the perfect fit and we look forward to a successful relationship.” Papadomanolakis said.
