Another season of success for bluegr Hotels & Resorts

Another season of success for bluegr Hotels & Resorts

As the sun sets on another glorious season for bluegr Hotels & Resorts, it seems only right to take stock of the successes the team have enjoyed across their four properties: Minos Beach art hotel, Minos Palace hotel & suites and Candia Park village in Crete and Life Gallery athens in the capital’s northern suburbs.

A VIP Hotspot

Crete proved to be a real hit with the celebs once again! Minos Beach art hotel warmly welcomed Vicky Pattison and beau Ercan Ramadan for a romantic getaway as well as Professor Green for a VIP stay,

Georgia May Foote and partner Kris celebrated his birthday at Minos Palace too. Georgia treated Kris to one of the brand-new Waterfall Suites this year which they said was a perfect holiday!

A Winning Hotel Group

A huge cause for celebration this year was Minos Beach art hotel’s award of “Crete's Most Outstanding Luxury Boutique Hotel, 2019” by LUX Life Magazine’s Global Luxury Hotel & Spa Awards! The prestigious awards honour those who work tirelessly to provide the best guest services, amongst fierce competition, for a peaceful and tranquil holiday experience.

Minos Palace were awarded t​he prestigious Travelife Gold Certification, which is awarded upon assessment of accommodation performance in the areas of human rights, labour, community engagement and environmental impacts. Meanwhile, Candia Park village was recognised for their incredible childcare facilities by becoming a member of Worldwide Kids, an accreditation they are very proud of.

Resulting from a strong catalogue of experiences and eco-conscious efforts of Minos Beach art hotel, Minos Palace hotel & suites and Candia Park village, the properties also secured their Blue Flags for the 26th year in a row!

New Works of Art

Minos Beach art hotel’s already stunning eclectic outdoor art gallery set in aromatic gardens, exhibiting contemporary artworks by Greek and international artists, raised the bar even higher this year. Guests travelled from all corners of the world to see "Come with the Wind”, a visual exhibition and sound installation by visual artist Theodoros Zafeiropoulos and architect Giorgos Rymenidis. The reception has also been given a whole new piece of art, meaning the spectacle starts as soon as you enter Minos Beach!

Another beautiful creation in 2019 was the Waterfall Suites at Minos Palace hotel & suites. Designed for seekers of ultimate luxury and tranquillity, the 61 sqm suites consist of a large double bedroom, bathroom with walk-in shower, elegant living area opening up onto a furnished private terrace and a private freshwater pool!

Gastronomy taken to New Heights

A new era of gastronomy was celebrated in Minos Beach art hotel, Minos Palace hotel & suites and Candia Park village in Crete as well as Life Gallery athens earlier this year. The collaboration with award-winning chef Yiannis Baxevanis saw the hotels’ menus flourish into new works of art.

Borne of a shared passion between bluegr Hotels & Resorts and Chef Baxevanis about Greek cuisine, all bluegr properties use a high proportion of local products - in fact 80% of their ingredients and dishes are made up of produce that supports local communities and promotes Greek gastronomy.

A beautiful addition to Minos Beach art hotel’s 4 restaurants and 3 bars was La Cave de La Bouillabaisse, this year. The new contemporary wine spot on the shores of Mirabello Bay serves the finest vintages from around the world and light dishes alongside mesmerising Aegean Sea views.
