Out of the Blue, Capsis Elite Resort , Heraklion, Crete

The lure of luxury family holidays and breaks with more than a hint of bling bring wealthy Russians to the Out of the Blue, Capsis Elite Resort, located on its own peninsula on the northern coast of Crete, though other nationalities are well represented.

In addition to two hotels, it has three ‘neighbourhoods’ with rooms, suites, bungalows, villas and maisonettes (some with private pools) and its own zoo and Minoan-themed amusement park (the Minoan palace of Knossos is nearby).

Kids are well catered for - especially babies and teenagers. The creche runs daily for those aged 6-months up to 3 years and handy essentials can be hired in-resort to save you packing everything but the kitchen sink. On the other end of the age spectrum, teens are spoilt with the wealth of activities on offer, including the chance to learn how to cook Greek cuisine, the opportunity to step-up their football and tennis skills and the option take part in various competitions. But the big draw at Out of the Blue are the Escape Rooms; the new interactive real-time game where some very handy skills will need to be used to make ths most of this fun experience.

And if you want to get out as see more of the area, why not take a walk across the beach of Aghia Pelagia fishing village and enjoy it’s calm, crystal clear waters along with some traditional taverns.


Out of the Blue is about 100m from the village of Aghia Pelagia in the north of Crete, 25km from Heraklion International Airport.
