This award-winning spa resort has a beachside setting and is renowned for its extensive Thalassotherapy treatments.

Voted eight times as the World’s Leading Thalasso Resort at the World Travel Awards, this unparalleled wellness resort is designed to take its guests to a place of utter relaxation. Visit the modern Thalasso/spa and choose from a menu of treatments crafted to soothe all manner of aches, from firming seaweed body wraps to an aromatic hydro-jet bath to reinvigorate the senses. The impressive facilities include a hammam, Finnish sauna and a huge heated indoor pool filled with seawater.

Enjoy a game of tennis at the state-of-the-art clay court tennis centre and take a lesson or two to practise your serve, or attend a Pilates class before relaxing with a massage at the Thalasso/spa. The resort is peppered with tempting pools and there is no shortage of places to take a dip. And daily access to the gym means that you can go as and when you please, if you wish to at all! A pebbled beach at one end of the hotel is a convenient place to sunbathe or swim in the sea without ever having to leave the resort.

Sit down to a different menu every night as you try each of Aldemar’s six restaurants. A rich buffet dinner is served at Sympossio, the main restaurant, you can head to the snack bar Allegro for pizza, or to Albatros if you prefer to dine by the sea. Traditional Greek food can be found at El Greco, the Royal Palm restaurant brings you Asian flavours with the likes of sushi on the menu, and if you’re keen to maintain a healthy diet, Candia is just the place to order Mediterranean salads and lighter meals.

The rooms are spacious and light. Choose a Junior Suite with a private pool for complete seclusion, with views of the garden and a Jacuzzi to add a touch of grandeur to your luxurious escape.
