Euphoria Retreat is, in our opinion, the most exciting new destination spa of 2018. It’s one of those ‘wow’ destinations that you will fall in love with.
It’s been 10 years in the making, so the attention to detail is very impressive, as is its unique design, which seamlessly fits into the historical UNESCO heritage site of Mystras at the foot hills of Mount Taygetos of Peloponnese.
The retreat is surrounded by olive groves and has a private forest where you can completely immerse yourself in nature.
Inspired by the ancient Greek and Chinese healing philosophies, which both share a common understanding of human nature and love for inner peace and holistic balance, the retreat aims to balance your mind, body and soul through a combination of inspiring and cutting-edge treatments and delicious, locally grown nutritious food.
There’s a key focus on five elements; water, wood, fire, earth and metal, which are incorporated into the architecture and design and also at the heart of their signature treatments.
The wellness programmes, such as detox, yoga, inner peace and weight-loss, have been expertly designed to help you transform, heal yourself and give you the necessary tools to live a happier and healthier life.
The spa is a haven of tranquillity and it’s an impressive size at 3,000sq m – it’s the beating heart of the retreat.
The innovative sphere pool which was inspired by the iconic Hagia Sophia church allows you to glide through the domes and fully submerge yourself while listening to the soothing sounds of music, dolphins and whales. Another impressive feature is the Speleotherapy – salt room which has partially translucent blocks of salt which are lit up in different shades, creating a relaxing ambience. The aim is to drive cell activity, boost energy and stabilise blood-sugar levels.
Come to Euphoria Retreat if you’re looking to do a full health-boost, and you’ll leave feeling completely rejuvenated.
