White Palace Summary
The White Palace, so called for its chic white washed exterior, cool stylish interior and luxurious offerings, is an ideal choice for destination weddings. If you love the classic simplicity of Greece but seek an indulgent holiday experience with high standards of service and care, then you’ll love this five star resort.
The White Palace has a great location. A short taxi ride from the bustle of historic Rethymnon, you’ll find a plethora of traditional tavernas, lively bars and boutique shopping. This lovely resort boasts all the necessary components of a luxury stay; manicured gardens, spacious terraces and elegant communal spaces that open out to the most incredible views. This is a friendly hotel and so, couples travelling with small children will feel very welcome. Meanwhile, honeymooners and wedding couples will love the privacy of the beachfront ‘Yali’ villas which offer a private swimming pool and an ambience of true intimacy.
The White Palace boasts no less than 17 pools and so, the spacious poolside terraces are never crowded. Whether you are travelling with children or seeking a romantic haven, there’s a pool here for you. If you can tear yourself away from your four-poster lounger and freshly prepared cocktail, you’ll find an array of experiences. From tennis and water sports for the more active to the indulgent spa for those who prefer more relaxing pursuits. Meanwhile, children are kept well entertained at the children’s’ clubs, outdoor cinema and even a mini-zoo.
Dining at the White Palace is an experience in itself. The main restaurant, for all-inclusive guests, offers a wide range of Cretan and international food. Furthermore, the kids have their own corner where little ones can find snacks throughout the day. A further 4 a la carte restaurants offer fine dining opportunities with cuisine from French gourmet and Italian to Thai. We particularly love evenings down at the beach bar where you can sip cocktails as the sun sets.
Exchange your vows in the sea breeze with the ocean as your backdrop or perhaps, you’ll choose the garden surrounded by sweet-scented bougainvillaea. Our favourite? A rustic wedding at the Agrecco Farm. Here, perched upon a hillside, you will marry in the most magical of surroundings. Afterwards, your wedding celebrations can continue at the traditional taverna, where the food is only matched by the view over an amphitheatre of vineyards and olive groves to the distant sea beyond. Perfection!
