Massive Greek thermal spa resort with floating sauna and super-yacht marina opens this year

by Jane Kitchen | 08 Jan 2016

Greece’s Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort is set to open in May of this year in Halkidiki, with a 3,000sq m (32,291sq ft) Myrthia Thermal Spa, and plans for a medical wellness section to be added in 2017.

Owned by Med Sea Health, the resort is designed by Greek architecture firm DLP, owned by Michel De Landtsheer and Eleni Pletsa, and will feature 300 bedrooms and suites, 48 with private pools. UK-based Howard Spa Consulting has also been involved in the concept, layout and facilities of the Myrthia Thermal Spa, which will integrate the thalasso and thermal pools with spa and wellness packages.

The resort features a large thalassotherapy pool fed directly from the sea, which warms to 30 degrees Celsius (86 F), as well as four separate thermal pools with the unique thermal waters of the region.

The two-storey spa features a thermal well-life suite, including a beauty salon, steamroom, herbal sauna, Finnish sauna, tepidarium, cold plunge walking path, two experience showers and three swimming pools with sea and thermal water. Additionally, a floating sauna in the marina offers guests the chance to jump directly into the sea for a cool down.

The spa will feature five spacious multifunctional rooms; one double treatment room, two VIP suites, one VIP lounge, a fitness centre with separate stretching and personal-training area and a consultation welcome area.

Spa director Stavros Mavridis said the focus will be on interactive, healthy and memorable experiences.

A second phase of the resort will include the opening of a medical wellness section and additional hydrotherapy and spa treatment rooms in 2017.

“Our goal is to create one of the best integrated medical wellness centres in Europe – open all year round – in order to extend the tourist season and enhance the development of the Greek tourist product,” said Mavridis.

The resort will also include five dining options, including a sea-to-table Marina Restaurant; four bars; a kids "planet," featuring football academy, astronomy and pirate-ship building; helicopter transfers; and a marina deep enough for super-yachts.
