Summer 2019

Mar19423 Antiquity to Modernity: LuxuryWellness at Thermae Sylla Spa Thermae Sylla Spa, located in Euboea, has long been considered one of the best medical spas in Europe. Following its recognition in LUXlife’s 2019 Leading Health & Wellness Retreats, where it was named the ‘Most Outstanding Luxury Thermal Spa in Greece’, we took a closer look at this extraordinary establishment to find out more. Greece holds a special place in the luxury wellness market, bringing to mind a holistic, natural approach to health and wellbeing. It’s a reputation hard earned and well received, attracting no end of travellers and tourists to Greece’s shores. Perhaps no spa has been quite so well received as Thermae Sylla Spa, with its natural thermal spring, world- renowned treatments and leading practitioners. Unusually, the spa’s water springs naturally at an already hot 80 °C, carrying with it vital minerals that boast of healing properties. This water is used in all of the spa’s treatments, serving to distinguish Thermae Sylla Spa from a wealth of competitors. “The mineral springs of Edipsos have been famous for their healing properties since the 4th century B.C. Ancient Greek writers and philosophers such as Aristotle, Strabo, and Plutarch make many references to these springs. In Edipsos, the mineral spring water springs from natural wells as deep as 3,000 m at temperatures of 75-85°C.” - Thermae Sylla Spa on their world-famous spring waters But this is far from the only way that the spa has secured itself as a leading presence in the industry. Partnering this differentiator with best in class treatments and services, including detoxification treatments, facials, massages, thermal mud-balneotherapy, yoga and training options, there’s something here to suit every palette and taste. On top of this, Thermae Sylla also offers anti-stress and targeted weight loss programmes, meaning that they this isn’t, simply a wellness establishment but a full-service health and fitness one too. It would be remiss to skip over the spa’s specialised approach to medical treatments which include physiotherapy options, such electrotherapy sessions, ultrasounds treatments and hydrokinesiotherapy. Indeed, many of Thermae Sylla’s treatments involve water, carrying through the theme of the spa from the outset and throughout.
