This is an exceptional property. There are many 5 star resorts on Crete, but no one can compare to this hotel's experienced staff, dedication to culinary excellence and unbelievably calm blue waters.

No matter the weather conditions, the Agia Pelagia cove will always welcome you with calm crystal clear blue waters. It can get very windy on Crete especially during the month of August. Out of the Blue's shoreline is so pristine and calm. If you are heading to the resorts in Chania or Elounda make sure to hold on to your items.

The hotel has plenty of restaurants on property, all of their dishes are handcrafted to perfection from locally sourced products to the multi-faceted flavors to the beautiful presentation making the experience a feast for the eyes and the tummy.

Finally, we baptized our son in the hotel. The Marketing & Events team is outstanding..able to outperform any events team at the NY Plaza or the Ritz (I've had events there). We coordinated everything by phone and video calls..never met in person. But the team, Margarita Gourgioti, Mr. Antonis Stamou, Mrs. Agapi Stamataki, were able to bring an enhanced version of my own vision to reality. This kind of excellence could only come from a distinguished group of professionals who are at the top of their game in touch with the global trends and cultural traditions.
If you are researching a venue for a destination wedding or a destination baptism, look no further. Their chapel is something out of a fairy tale. Bright white overlooking the beach wrapped in beautiful greenery, waiting for its moment under the Cretan sun.
The food is so elegant and rich. Our guests were blown away.

This resort has it all! A property able to host some of life's most memorable moments, to an unforgettable family vacation, enriched with activities for children and adults.

Truly a Talented group!

Room tip: Even the Garden Views are stunning..so book & not fret. so much to do won't be in the room much

Out of the Blue Capsis Elite Resort is simply heaven on Cretan soil! A top class resort situated on a stunning location offering a unique holiday experience in the spirit of Cretan hospitality. An ideal setting for families, couples and singles exceeding expectations of the most demanding customer. Out of the Blue Capsis Elite Resort is a true sample of excellent hospitality from arrival to departure!

Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by reception staff who offered us a traditional Cretan tea before taking us to the breakfast area; a most beautiful veranda covered by a pergola creating a warm and cool atmosphere under the Cretan sun. The staff was simply excellent. They took such good care of us that we would stay long after breakfast time ended. Breakfast quality and quantity was one of a kind. Everyday I would have a different kind of omelette and I did not have the time to try them all!

A most enthusiastic nutritionist is also available in house willing to guide the cook should one require nutritional advice. In fact, as part of its amazing spa services, Out of the Blue Capsis Elite Resort offers customised detoxing and wellness treatments, which are ideal for a weekly stay.

Accommodation at the resort is stunning. My suite was simply gorgeous. Spacious, with a lovely balcony overlooking the sea while hiding behind lush plantation, beautifully furnished with top quality linen, most luxurious bathroom amenities and Bulgari body products. Situated close to a small private beach and a few meters away from the spa, it offered VIP exclusivity.

Transfers within the resort are available 24 hours. If you wish to go anywhere around the Out of the Blue Capsis Elite Resort peninsula, a go kart is always available to take you anywhere. Staff is always there attentive to your needs.

Food at the resort exceeds the expectations of the most avid diner. The epitome of Cretan cuisine is to be found at the Sea Salt and Rosemary Restaurant overlooking Agia Pelagia Beach, the Amarandos Restaurant overlooking Kladissos Beach, the Safran Italian Restaurant overlooking one of the resort’s pools. My warmest congratulations to those amazing chefs who did not cease to please our palate!

Out of the Blue Capsis Elite Resort is an exquisite holiday destination offering the absolute best of Cretan hospitality.

After three consecutive years, I can’t wait to go back!

Thank you for your stellar hospitality!

a wonderful and relaxing stay over 4 days at this elegant and stylish resort hotel ! I stayed in a very comfortable and modern double bedroom suite with two good bathrooms in the Crystal building with excellent amenities and although near two super pools and a restaurant no noise at all . The resort has two excellent private beaches within the hotel grounds and many sports facilities available on and of the water. We ate most nights in one of the restaurants where all the food was very high quality and I would especially praise the hotel's Italian restaurant with beautiful views over Agia Pelaghia bay . One night out a nearby Folende taverna , in a quaint village reputed as the birthplace of El Greco... also a great feast ! All of the friend s I was with on the trip were delighted by the facilities and those who brought along young children and teenagers were also very happy with the hotel . So a great combination of a modern resort - hotel with every thing and yet also a private and special atmosphere and personal service right down to catering for 23 at a birthday party for a 15 year old in the hotel's beachside tavern ! Highly recommended !!

Room tip: rooms on the south side first and second floors of the Crystal building have great sea views and are nice and quiet

What a relaxing experience!
Our stay, late June, at the “Out of the Blue”, was one of the most revitalizing trips we ever made. The hotel, consisting of various buildings from 4 floors buildings to bungalows and even private villas, is situated by the seductive bay of Aghia Pelagia at a literally private peninsula within a huge parcel with its own private beach. Several outdoor activities, the glorious landscape with the very beautiful gardens, the pools, the variety of restaurants etc, they all made each moment of our stay a call to exploration. In two words nothing to get bored, but still quite calm and very well organized.
We stayed at the all junior suite with jacuzzi that was quite spacious, decorated with charm and very clean.
We had breakfast at the Precieux restaurant and the first night we had lunch at the Sea Salt and Rosemary by the beach of Aghia Pelagia with great Cretan food and fresh fish The taste of the food was delicious and the sea breeze touches our soul. Next morning we swam around the peninsula and we even hired jet skis to explore more of this lovely bay. What a blue and clear sea that was! And what an organized beach Within the next days we had lunch at the Amarando restaurant beach bar that was very special as well.
Being at « Out of the Blue » is a serious “attack” for your silhouette... Besides all that: we had a wonderful Spa and massage with Cretan herbs and had Sauna & Hamam......,
The staff was always friendly and helpful whenever needed. And our room was always clean with nice bathroom amenities in the room.
When we ordered room service the staff was very polite and quick. The Reception staff was very cooperative and helped us in whatever question we had. Least but not last I would like to mention that to our surprise they upgraded our room to a suite room due to availability, as we have been told. Good to be there!
