This week we have a 5 Nights At 5* Royal Blue Hotel, Crete, Greece (15-20 Oct 18). This stay includes daily gourmet breakfast, complimentary wifi and 10% discount in the Spa, and is valued at approximately $1,800 USD / £1,325 GBP* and is currently under $200 in our luxury travel auction.

The Catch

The stay must be booked in advance and taken between 15 and 20 October 2018 only.

About The Hotel

The 5 star Royal Blue luxury beach resort lies on the northern coast of Crete, next to the small traditional village of Panormo and just 18km away from the picturesque and historical town of Rethymnon. The Royal Blue Resort is a tranquil and exclusive property that allows you to lose yourself in authentic luxury and quiet sophistication, with its own private bay and an endless horizon of Cretan Blue sea and skies.

This impressive 70 acre property enjoys elegant rooms, luxurious waterfront suites and exclusive villas all with amazing views and numerous individual swimming pools. The hotel also features: 2 main pools, 4 restaurants (including 3 à la carte restaurants), 3 bars and 1 beach bar, a special kids’ area, high end Pure Senses SPA facilities, fitness facilities (indoor and outdoor), conference center, library, jewelry shop, mini market, private beach with sunbeds, umbrellas and a wide selection of water sports, tennis and soccer courts, parking, kids club, kids pool and kids menu.

There are lots of new additions coming throughout 2018 too, including: guestroom renovations; the introduction of the Cave (a la carte adults only) restaurant with a special meat and fish menu; a new Outdoor Gym that takes advantage of the resort’s stunning location and 180º views; a new Bluetopia Kids’ Club and outdoor playground and so much more besides.

In terms of dining, guests can enjoy an authentic Mediterranean gastronomy experience made with the most natural local ingredients at the resort’s restaurants. Or, if it’s relaxation you seek, then a visit to the luxurious Pure Senses Spa is sure to relax and rejuvenate.

Realistically, this stay may sell for slightly more, but with less than 1 day of this auction left, it will undoubtedly sell for far less than the RRP. Bid only what you want to pay to stay and you might just bag a bargain!

If this doesn’t float your boat, there are over 60 more auction items to choose from.
