Four of the Best Luxury Spas in Mykonos
For many, a vacation encompasses moments of rest, relaxation and regeneration. An elegant time spent in the lovely surroundings of an elite spa can do wonders for the body, mind and soul.
Although Mykonos is famous for its party atmosphere, it’s also home to some of the world’s most elite day spas offering the escape and tranquility from a fast-paced life. Have a look at our four choices:
Althea Spa Retreat
Greek Goddess Althea is the goddess of healing and compassion. It is fitting, then, that one of the most luxurious spas on Mykonos bears her name. Althea Spa Retreat is in the Mykonos Grand Hotel and Resort – opposite the sacred island of Delos, one of the sunniest places on earth and brimming with cosmic energy conducive to healing. A visit to Althea for its surroundings alone is a must. Its unique design swathes you in sedate, natural light aligned with Cycladic architecture in shades of blue and white. All treatment rooms offer private shaded courtyards and the semi-caved Thalasso pool as well as outdoor treatment and relaxation areas, which help you melt into your natural surroundings for a feeling of total well-being.
On the spa menu: The spa treatments menu at Althea are akin to that of a Michelin-starred restaurant. With all the offerings, more than one visit is recommended. We would suggest first to begin with one of the spa rituals – the traditional relief olive medium pressure massage based on traditional techniques, great for increasing circulation, improving skin tone and soothing your tired muscles. Ask to follow the experience with a soak in the outdoor jet tub while you enjoy a glass of champagne taking in the breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea.
Ginkgo Spa – one of the top spas in Mykonos – uses three words to capture its essence: Harmonize, revitalize and energize. The sauna and hammam provide a zone of hot experiences that may be enjoyed independently or in a sequence before your spa treatments. A beautiful setting before or after your spa session, the relaxation area features plush daybeds encircled by shallow waters and long flowing curtains. Treatments at Ginkgo exclusively feature natural skincare and thalassotherapy from two renowned spa brands. All products provide a journey of healthy aging and a balanced life.
On the spa menu: We definitely recommend the hammam experience which begins by deeply cleansing your skin with a revitalizing body scrub, followed by a full-body foam massage, nourishing marine-mud body mask with aromatic oils of sweet orange and rose geranium, a refreshing hair wash and hydrating conditioning scalp treatment. You could choose the inner calm massage prior to heading to the hammam. The massage is personalized to your physical and emotional needs. Carefully chosen aromatherapy blends relax, cleanse or energize, while advanced massage alleviates muscular pressure, soothes anxiety and invokes profound relaxation. Your mind and body will feel balanced with your energy and inner calm beautifully restored.
Best Mykonos Villa for the Pleasure Seeking
When it comes to Mykonos luxury homes, the ideal spot for you to set down roots while you’re in this mecca is Best Mykonos Villa – a luxury complex that speaks the ultimate language of hedonism. Invite close friends and family (because there is room for 24) to this ultimate retreat on the Aegean Sea to enjoy the finest elite living has to offer. Indoor and outdoor spaces meld for seamless living spaces with the focal point being an absolutely sumptuous 7,534-square-foot infinity pool overlooking the azure blue sea with views stretching to Delos, Tinos and Santorini. This astonishing home includes a gym, spa lounge, indoor and outdoor hot tubs and unique underwater bars, just to name a few of the amenities. If you want to bring your beloved pet along, he or she is welcome since Best Mykonos Villa has a no-holds-barred philosophy of indulgence and enjoyment. The home also has a helipad for easy arrival by helicopter.
Ciel Mykonos Spa
The journey at Ciel is all about healing. The team here is very professional and highly qualified. They use luxurious, holistic and edible products with a high reverence for nature. Guests have the option of choosing a therapy from the menu or having the staff create a personal spa itinerary for you. The staff at Ciel are constantly keeping abreast of new developments and specializations and participate in seminars to increase their knowledge of holistic practices.
On the spa menu: The deluxe Ciel massage experience is one not to miss. It is a facial treatment, body scrub and body wrap using active components of marine ingredients. It aims to detox, revitalize and boost your body while ridding it of toxins. A deep facial treatment based on sea zeolites and oxygenol will be an elixir to your skin. Your body will experience a deep exfoliation thanks to a thermal cocoon with thousands of active microcapsules releasing sea ingredients and a cryotonic mask with all the benefits of sea treasures. This journey will whisk you away to a world of relaxation while restoring your skin.
Kenshō Cave Spa
How would you like to have an awakening experience in a cave? This is no bleak, dingy cave, rather the Kenshō Cave Spa – a small universe dedicated to your well-being. The impressive interior design of this spa will make you feel like you are in an actual cave while at the same time you will enjoy moments of rejuvenation and relaxation, choosing between various treatments like color, sound or heat therapy. In one of the hammam rooms you will enjoy all the beneficial effects of a steam bath, while in the Jacuzzi area signature treatments on the tropical rain bed offer pure peacefulness.
On the spa menu: Try Kenshō’s hi-tech sun beds with color, sound and heat therapy prior to choosing your experience. We suggest the absolute state of calmness which is inspired by different ancestral techniques. This massage relies on a combination of energy acupressure points, invigorating strokes and soft stretches to help relieve muscle aches, encourage sound sleep and promote a state of pure wellness. The expert hands of your therapist apply deep pressure and long continuous movements on tender knots. A scalp massage with warm towels as well as hot towels on your back and neck complete the treatment and nourish your hair. If you aren’t limiting your time, also have the Codage lightening peeling facial dedicated to skin with dark spots and spots in general. This is a highly exfoliating professional peel to smooth out skin texture, lighten the complexion and visibly fade dark spots for an even, radiant complexion. Therapists recommend this treatment to be done after 5 p.m. to avoid the sun’s rays.
