Boutique Greek island retreat unveils new spa with waterfall treatment rooms

by Megan Whitby | 13 Jul 2023

Calilo, a luxury boutique resort on the Greek island of Ios, has a new spa and fitness centre.

The hotel has a philosophy based on sustainability, art and intentional design.

Inspired by the naturally calming energy of water, the spa includes six new treatment rooms that feature waterfalls and treatment beds suspended above pools of water to deliver a calming experience for guests. The ceilings are partially perforated to allow natural light to illuminate the space.

The three-level facility also features a gym on two floors, including personal saunas, one indoor and two outdoor pools looking over Papas Beach and expansive space for fitness classes and meditation.

The third floor is home to Calilo’s new spa which is characterised by playful interiors and design details that focus on wellbeing and positivity.

The treatments provided spotlight traditional Greek products, including honey from the property’s own beehives and olive oil sourced from local olive trees.

Calilo also has 30 rooms, multiple dining outlets, private beach cabanas and event spaces and also hosts experiences such as private boat excursions, culture trips, wine tastings and dinner under the stars.

The property is part of the LuxurIOS brand, which is owned by Angelos Michalopoulos and Vassiliki Petridou. When developing the hotel, the Michalopoulos family opted to leave 99 per cent of the land undeveloped, in order to sustain the natural beauty of the island.

The developed, however, has been undertaken in an environmentally-friendly manner with construction material – including marble and granite – extracted from the ground of the actual building site.

Calilo has several conservation projects underway, including the Elektra olive tree project, where the team has planted over 60,000 trees and bushes to restore habitats that had previously been burned by wildfire and subject to deforestation – including 550 ancient olive trees.

"The continued enhancements at Calilo reflect my personal vision as an artist and my commitment as a hotelier to deliver an aesthetically unique product that respects the breathtaking traditional ways of Cycladic architecture while accommodating the needs of the modern traveller," said Angelos Michalopoulos.
