Enjoy unparalled privacy and a host of extra perks.

Hidden behind a private entrance, the Exclusive Collection at Out of the Blue Capsis Elite Resort lives up to its name. With the exception of some of the residences set by the private beach, these grand suites and villas are sequestered at very end of the peninsula, claiming the best views in the resort. Exclusive guests can enjoy breakfast at Precieux Gourmet Restaurant, a breakfast venue reserved only for those staying in this part of the resort, as well as receive complimentary access to the Euphoria Spa’s facilities (sauna, Jacuzzi, hammam, indoor heated hydrotherapy pool).

Serenely quiet, this part of the resort is made for basking in the peacefulness of the Greek coast, and yet it’s just a walk or buggy ride away from the wealth of facilities shared among guests, including three escape rooms, a giant chess board and the private Cladissos Beach. There’s a watersports centre where you can rent jet skis, canoes, stand-up paddle boards and pedalo boats – you can also take a thrilling speedboat ride around the crystal-clear waters and enrol on a diving programme at the PADI diving centre. Best of all, you’ll never have to worry about getting to the beach early to secure a good spot; your suite or villa comes with a private cabana that’s reserved for you each day on the beach or on an elevated deck.

Offering some of the most impressive accommodation in Crete, these suites and villas are truly decadent and all offer sea views, private pools or Jacuzzis – with some offering a combination of these. Seafront Junior Suites are simple and elegant, featuring a gold bedhead crowning the room and enormous windows that showcase the Aegean Sea views. For the ultimate, luxurious stay, opt for a Luxury Junior Suite which has a glass walls around the outdoor area for uninterrupted views of the sea and come with either a private pool or outdoor Jacuzzi.
