Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The Euphoria Retreat is surrounded by a private pine forest in the foothills of Mt Taygetus, overlooking the fertile valley of the River Evrotas, with the sea a 40-minute drive away. There couldn’t be a better setting for a luxury spa retreat.

Rooms at Euphoria Retreat

In keeping with Euphoria's philosophy, the accommodation is sleek, elegant and minimalistic, with a carefully-planned layout designed to induce calm and wellbeing. Each of the bespoke rooms and suites has an individual style. Featuring wooden furniture and marble bathrooms, they are decorated with warm colours inspired by Byzantine iconography.

Enjoy views over the gardens, the surrounding private forest and Mystras, including its medieval castle, from your patio or veranda. 

Food & Drink

Fitting perfectly with the retreat’s wellness concept, the Gaia restaurant offers dishes that are delicious as well as healthy and full of nutrients. The menu draws on Greek and Mediterranean cuisine, and is inspired by the hotel’s surroundings. Special menus are available for the specific requirements of guests, including gluten-free and vegetarian options, as well as options for those following programmes such as detox and weight loss.

At the restaurant, enjoy year-round panoramic views of the valley and the citrus groves, while during the warmer months, you can dine on the terrace beneath the grapevines.

Facilities

The 3,000-square-metre spa features an incredible array of treatments and therapies, and its facilities include hot and cold pools, a Byzantine hammam, a Tepidarium (sauna), a yoga and meditation hall and serene relaxation areas. The indoor/outdoor Sphere pool, which is crowned by stone arches, features hydrotherapy jets and benches built under the water for light massages and relaxation.

Indulge in an individually-designed wellness programme that works simultaneously on the three levels of existence – Jing (physical), Chi (energy) and Shen (mind and emotions) – as well as the five elements of earth, fire, water, wood and metal. These include wellness detox programmes, yoga, relax and de-stress programmes, massage therapies and face and body treatments, and there are signature retreats held on certain dates.

Activities at Euphoria Retreat

The retreat offers daily tailored activities designed to complement each guest’s personalised wellness programme, including fitness, detox and weight loss programmes. 

Around the area, go mountain trekking, relax on the beach (beaches are a 30-minute drive away), or visit the Archaeological Museum in Mystras, a historic UNESCO-listed town whose Byzantine influences can be seen throughout the hotel, and the ancient town of Sparta.
