Euphoria Retreat resides under the shadow of Peloponnese’s mystical Mount Taygetus and a stone’s throw from the Byzantine city of Mystras, a UNESCO-listed site for its grand medieval castle. Lined with lush Cyprus trees and pines, the fertile Evrotas River Valley sprawls out below to complete the blissful scene. Beautifully tendered gardens and a temperate Mediterranean climate complement this soothing wellness experience. Between therapies, guests can hike and bike through the surrounding 78,000 m2 forested park or take part in the hotel’s exciting day excursions.
Athens Airport is 2.5 hours away by car. Kalamata Airport is 50 minutes away by car, operates seasonally March to November.
Rooms & Suites
The 45 room property has been tastefully decorated in a soft minimalist design, with earthy hues, vibrant textiles, and Byzantine iconography adding an exotic touch. High tech installations like bio-climatisation, multi-directional lighting, and underfloor heating add modern comfort without compromising on character.
Choose from three unique room types or four suites; ranging from 25 m2 to 100 m2, each comes individually decorated and has its own distinct flair. Contemporary wooden furnishings, plush marble ensuite bathrooms, and a private balcony with breathtaking views come standard in every room.
Spa & Wellness
The Euphoria Retreat’s sumptuous spa draws upon ancient Chinese and Greek healing practices for a truly holistic approach. Furthermore, the centre’s unique wellness philosophy blends the old and the new: ancient wisdom explains how energy flows through the body, and evidence-based research examines therapy on a biochemical level.
These parallel wellness philosophies - Chinese and Greek; modern and ancient—intertwine in their essence, facilitating Euphoria to inspire participants to achieve a healthier and more balanced life.
Of course, all this is backed by a smorgasbord of state-of-the-art wellness facilities. The 3,000 m2 area spans four floors, with high-tech facilities including a Sphere Pool, a Tepidarium, a Byzantine Hammam, a Speleotherapy-Salt Room, and a Sanctuary Deprivation Pool. Multiple massage and therapy rooms administer a range of treatments, while hair care and cosmetics are specialities of the beauty salon.
Other aquatic therapies are on hand to soothe the body and the soul: a Waterwell Kneip Therapy stairwell, a rejuvenating Finnish Sauna, an invigorating Steam Room, a cold-water Plunge Pool, multi-jet Experiential Showers, and a scenic swimming pool that basks in the warm Mediterranean sun.
Strength and fitness form a core pillar of the Euphoria approach; the centre features a Yoga & Meditation Hall, a Pilates & Private Exercise Studio, and a Fitness Room, while outdoor activities like hiking, biking, and climbing await in the surrounding hills.
All this holistic wellness bliss comes a la carte or part of a packaged multi-day retreat.
