Situated next to the traditional fishing village of Agia Pelagia, this award-winning resort is spread across its own peninsula, 12 miles west of Heraklion. New for 2017, Out of the Blue Capsis Elite Resort has teamed up with British-based yoga teacher, wellness coach and raw food educator Elaine Vaughan to create the ‘Banish, Balance, Boost’ programme for guests who suffer from low energy and bloating, and want to gain more control of their life.

Kick-starting the journey to a healthier, happier and more successful lifestyle, this six-day programme combines yoga, relaxation therapies and positive thinking, with a raw menu using natural, nutrient-rich ingredients. Expect two days of mental and physical exercise to cleanse the mind and body, followed by two days of relaxation techniques to help banish any barriers to those wellness goals. The final couple of days see a mix of yoga, expert wellness tips and recipes for energising juices and meals, so the new lifestyle lasts long after the plane has touched down back home.

Also on the spa menu is everything from anti-stress programmes and nutrition plans for children to detox and Dukan Diet plans, mostly using organic vegetables, fruits and herbs plucked from the resort’s kitchen-garden.

A comprehensive selection of skincare therapies means spa-goers have a choice of mesotherapy, body scrubs and ultherapy, in addition to a variety of massages — body sculpting, anti-cellulite, anti-ageing, aromatherapy, hot stone, Thai and Cretan herb.
The red-and-cream-hued boutique spa is within shuffling distance of five swimming pools, a fitness centre, watersports centre and PADI scuba diving centre, as well as a tennis court, volleyball court and mini-football pitch.

Come evening, there are six restaurants to choose from, before retreating to one of three accommodation collections, with options ranging from family bungalows to private-pool villas. Before heading home, a must-try is the tantalising trio of themed escape rooms — a hit with would-be detectives from across the globe.
