Pampering in Halkidiki
Located just four kilometers away from Nikiti, perched on the bluffs of the Aegean Peninsula, right in the middle of the second prong of the Halkidiki peninsula, in a Riviera-like setting with impeccable gardens, columned terraces, large golden sandy beaches, lush pine forests, clean turquoise waters and azure skies, the Danai Beach Resort exudes timelessness and elegance.
Its gastronomy restaurant, the Squirrel, has consistently received awards and critical acclaim for its high gastronomic standards and its breathtaking view.
But another enticing reason to take a trip to this stunning part of Greece is to revel in the resort’s custom-built spa by Austrian-based company, Thermarium. The spa itself evokes understated opulence and is done up in white marble and green mosaic tiles with the hippocampus, the symbol of the resort, as a focal point on the spa floor.
Featuring an impressive array of treatments that combine ancient Eastern practices and traditions with the latest medical innovations of the West, the spa is equipped with state-of-the-art hammams, tepidarium, rassoul chambers, wet tables for peeling rituals, and a heated indoor pool – an ideal destination to get rid of layers of urban stress. Insider recommends a luxury Valmont facial treatment and if you want to indulge yourself a bit more, a body massage with Saint-Barth perfumed oils. Unwind on a heated lounge chair and let an overwhelming feeling of serenity envelop you. orloffspa.gr, danairesort.com
