Relaxing Treatments at The Syntopia Wellness Center
The Syntopia Hotel is an oasis for the soul. This overall relaxing haven will help you find inner balance and joy while you vacation on Crete. Nevertheless, the Aegeo Spa wellness center reigns supreme among its most relaxing spaces. Here you will discover an array of spa experiences, treatments, and packages inspired by the island’s Greek heritage.
The treatments prepared by the Aegeo Spa therapists reflect experience, knowledge, and respect for the local heritage. Greece was always celebrated as the cradle of modern medicine throughout the centuries. Still, even before Hippocrates, Greek physicians treated both body and mind using a holistic approach rooted in nature and all its blessings. Spa therapists today continue this timeless tradition.
As you enter the wellness centre, you can sense the natural scents of the oils and other precious healing ingredients that offer every guest authentic health and wellbeing benefits. Although the Aegeo Spa menu has some treatments derived from international practices, do choose a treatment that harnesses the power of the Cretan nature, tradition, and ancient Greek formulas. All the Cretan and Greek-inspired treatments will soothe your mind while recharging your body with fresh energy.
Here are just some of the Aegeo Spa wellness offers that couple ancient Greek philosophies with the healing powers of the Cretan nature. Of course, you can select anything else from our spa menu. However, we are confident that you appreciate the Cretan signature treatments for the ultimate Cretan wellbeing experience when you stay at The Syntopia Hotel.
