New Spa & Wellness facility in Mykonos
The Mykonos Grand Hotel & Resort, at Ayios Yiannis on the beautiful island of Mykonos, Greece, has launched the Althea Spa Retreat, its brand-new sanctuary of wellness.
Named after the goddess of healing, Althea welcomes hotel guests and local members alike in its superbly designed premises that exude minimalistic elegance, soothing colour symmetry, and a genuine sense of serenity.
Althea Spa Retreat occupies 750 sqm of indoor & outdoor area at ground level, overlooking the sacred island of Delos, birthplace of the mythological god of light, Apollo, and coincidentally one the sunniest areas in the world.
Working in partnership with award-winning London designer, Maria Vafiadis, Founder & Managing Director of MKV Design, Mykonos Grand has created a spa that is elegantly balanced, with daylight filled interiors where a palette of dazzling white and numerous shades of blue are perfectly aligned with the Cycladic architecture.
The Spa’s unique design optimally utilizes the glorious natural light.
A series of treatment rooms with private, shaded courtyards allows interaction with nature and views to the Aegean Sea while its semi-caved thalasso pool, as well as outdoor treatment and relaxation areas all enjoy incredible sea and garden views.
The result is a complete sense of all-round well-being.
The Menu of Althea Spa Retreat offers a journey of rejuvenating treatments designed to restore and revive mind, body and spirit in a secluded location.
Therapies have all been meticulously designed, incorporating the latest trends in health and beauty, to offer maximum relaxation, rejuvenation and integrative wellness.
Althea’s team is dedicated to a caring, compassionate and unobtrusive service.
Althea Spa Retreat complies with all health and safety protocols enforced to address the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Mykonos Grand, a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, is a unique resort barely three miles from Mykonos Town, on one of the island’s most famous beaches, Ayios Yiannis, known for its glorious sunsets recognizable from the movie Shirley Valentine.
The resort’s Cycladic architecture of cube shaped whitewashed buildings linked by cobbled pathways and terraces is combined with classic interior ambience.
The hotel offers 96 bedrooms and suites including luxurious Suites with private pools.
The resort’s facilities include tennis court, an impressive stone-built amphitheatre for inspiring meditation sessions, a 500sqm heated outdoor pool, a fitness centre and beach facilities on Ayios Yiannis beach.
