Halkidiki, GREECE –– Greece has been a popular destination for its Instagrammably blue waters and picturesque sunsets this summer; and it’s fast becoming a go-to destination for wellness travellers too.
With the market slowly improving in the wake of 2017’s recession, tourism is still an enormous contributor to the Greek economy – and new holiday destinations like The Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort in Halkidiki, are proving that Greece is a natural habitat for the healthy international explorer.
Offering everything from bespoke healthy menus, to the natural healing benefits of an indoor thermal spa facility, Miraggio is cementing its reputation as a detoxing playground – with the luxury perks of a brand new 5-star hotel perfectly poised for its new wellness program.
Designed to provide a balanced well-being holiday, Miraggio has included yoga on the beach-side pavilion, and cycling or Nordic walking in the pine-forest, all on its rota of fitness options – and all led by expert trainers in the stunning resort grounds.
Coupled with a nutritionally-devised Mediterranean menu, it’s an escape designed to leave guests feeling rejuvenated and reconnected. Devised by British Nutritionist, Amanda Hamilton, the menu suitably draws on locally sourced ingredients including plentiful fresh seafood, for a wholesome take on Greek cuisine – with a few sweet treats added in for good measure.
At 3000 square meters, Miraggio is also home to Greece’s largest thalassotherapy pool and spa, set across 2 floors and complete with locally inspired treatments for decompressing and unplugging from a busy schedule. It’s a mineral-rich underground hot spring which overlooks the Aegean Sea – and holds its own unique healing properties.
