Your Holiday

Your Destination

Crete is the largest of the Greek islands and is packed with culture, history and heritage. The Sensimar Royal Blue Resort & Spa is located in the small traditional village of Panormo on Crete's north coast. 

Only 22 km away from the picturesque & historical town of Rethymnon and 55km from the island capital city, Heraklion, you have easy access to many of the island’s most beautiful villages, cities and monuments.

There is so much to explore on the island - seek out vineyards, olive groves and the mountainous interiors like the locals do, on a moped! Or hire a car, take a coach trip or climb aboard a boat. Numerous excursions can be booked via the hotel reception.

The Royal Blue Resort 5*

This tranquil, luxury resort has its own private bay and offers endless views of Crete's beautiful blue waters. The decor is contemporary and sophisticated, with clean lines and simple architecture letting the amazing views take centre stage.

The numerous swimming pools, natural stone, waterfalls and colourful gardens, create the perfect setting for your well-being and relaxation. Varied bars and restaurants, a state of the art spa, tennis courts and a private beach will leave you spoilt for choice when it comes to 'me time'.

Some services may incur additional charges, payable locally.
