We are talking about Euphoria Retreat, a holistic wellbeing destination spa that has opened at Mystras, Peloponnese.
A magical setting in the heart of Peloponnese
Nature and history are combined to ensure a remarkable setting for Euphoria Retreat, in the heart of the Peloponnese. Situated in a valley on the edge of the Byzantine town of Mystras, a 13th century Unesco World Heritage site, a backdrop of mountains, citrus and orange groves it offers spectacular scenery.
Deeply authentic in its nature and philosophy, the new spa offers a unique blend of treatments and experiences to enable health and personal transformation, using Ancient Greek and Chinese philosophies and medicines.
The new retreat operates on a 12-month basis and is mostly addressed to guests looking for a holiday of wellness, relaxation and rejuvenation. 45 spacious rooms and suites enjoy an uplifting view of the Ancient Mystras castle, the valley or forest, and can accommodate up to 95 guests.
The spa and the pool
Landscaped into the earth, the spa; a remarkable architectural achievement, rises over four levels, taking spa-goers on a purifying journey. At its heart is a 25 metre Waterwell, where a spiral staircase leads to contrasting hot and cold footbaths, ideal for boosting circulation and injury recovery.
The innovative Sphere Pool with its stone arches, provides an unusual and utterly relaxing bathing experience. Spherical walls are lined with hydrotherapy jets and in-water benches for light massage and relaxation. A warm water Watsu Pool is designed for gentle body therapy while floating or being cradled, rocked and stretched.
A cathartic Byzantine Hammam provides a relaxing way to cleanse the whole body and relieve stress and tension. An Infrared Sauna helps detox the body and purify the skin while promoting weight loss, pain relief and healthy circulation.
Other facilities include a Tepidarium to help restore the immune system, cold plunge pool, ice fountain, Steam Room for detoxification and Relaxation Area with beautiful view across the landscaped gardens.
There are also a well-equipped fitness room and a Pilates and private exercise studio for group classes or TRX sessions. A Yoga & Meditation Hall has been designed to generate and maintain a sense of calm and serenity, as instructors will offer guidance around focused relaxation, inner balance and mind-body harmony.
Staying true to the healing traditions of Ancient Greece, Euphoria Retreat’s philosophy is centered around achieving balance in body, mind and soul.
