    Euphoria Spa

    Built into the mountainside so that it becomes, quite literally, one with nature, the Euphoria Retreat Spa rises over four levels, each representing a distinct passage in your journey.

    An authentic healing philosophy

    Euphoria Retreat is a place of healing and transformation, deeply authentic in its nature and philosophy. Our core concept draws inspiration from a number of sources, East and West: Taoist and Hellenic philosophy as well as Chinese and Hippocratic medicine.

    Staying true to the healing traditions of Ancient Greece, which gave birth to philosophy and the practice of Hippocratic medicine (and adopted Ef zin – ‘living well’ – as its guiding principle), we have embraced the notion of a balanced life and a healthy spiritual connection. The principles of what we today call a healing spa were, after all, first practiced at the healing temples of Asclepieion.

    A holistic approach

    The Ancient Hellenic and Chinese civilizations may have been far apart geographically, but both share a common understanding of cosmos and of human nature, and nurtured their love for inner peace and holistic balance. In what is more than a cosmic coincidence the two civilizations developed philosophies of wellbeing that were similar in many ways.

    They share a common understanding of cosmos and of human nature. And the emphasis of the holon – or ‘whole’- of Hippocratic medicine goes hand in hand with Taoist spirituality, which also embraces wholeness and unity. Both focus on bringing mental, physical and emotional harmony.

    Likewise, Ancient Greece’s five elements – fire, earth, water, air and aether – can be compared to their Taoist counterparts – fire, earth, water, metal and wood.

    The five elements form the cornerstone of our healing philosophy. They are incorporated into the architecture and design of the indoor and outdoor spaces and facilities of Euphoria Retreat, with areas dedicated to particular elements and their related energies.

    Most importantly, the five elements are at the heart of our Signature Treatments and Retreats, personalized to address the needs of each guests in order to bring balance and harmony across all three levels of existence: emotional, physical and spiritual.

    Healing through joy

    But Ancient Greek and Chinese philosophies also differ in ways that are important to the Euphoria Retreat experience. For Ancient Greek philosophers, life was to be celebrated, with happiness and joy being central to achieving harmony and life change. Hence our name, Euphoria.

    Eastern philosophy, by contrast, often place an emphasis on suffering as being necessary for catharsis.

    Likewise, Ancient Greek philosophers emphasized the need for individual responsibility, not just to the state but also to yourself. It is this personal choice that you will need to embrace if you are to achieve your goals.

    Rooms and Suites

    All the mysticism and elegance of Euphoria Retreat combine with soothing colors, dreamy curves and touches of modern luxury, to create an atmosphere of absolute pleasure and relaxation in 45 spacious rooms and suites. Each with its own special energy, our guestrooms provide the perfect setting in which to relax and completely unwind.

    With the most subtle touches in architecture and lighting, the yellows, golds and reds of the region’s Byzantine iconography are the inspiration for the rich colors and lavish textiles with which guestrooms are furnished – all the more striking within a design of Zen minimalism and the modern comforts of bio-climatization and a home automation system. Our luxurious bedding and pillow menu ensure a perfect night’s sleep, on mattresses that are hand-made especially for Euphoria Retreat to follow the contours of your body. The addition of olive oil to the natural fabrics of our mattresses will contribute to your skin feeling soft and velvety and, through the natural antibacterial properties of olive oil, help combat the free radicals that cause signs of ageing even as you sleep.

    A perfect mood for meditation

    Solid-wood furniture, marble or wooden floors, and luxuriously fitted bathrooms with signature amenities make you feel special throughout your stay. No two rooms are alike, and some even have their own Steam Shower. Insulation is provided, not just for warmth but for sound, too, allowing you to drift effortlessly into the perfect mood for relaxation and meditation.

    All rooms are designed to offer their own special guest experience, with a selection of suites for that extra special touch of elegance and space and disabled access rooms also available. The six rooms of the lovingly refurbished 1830-built Leoncini Mansion can even be booked for exclusive use, with a private dining room allowing absolute privacy.

    All guestrooms open onto balconies, terraces or courtyards, with uplifting views of the private forest, lush valley of citrus groves, or Castle of Mystras – especially impressive when lit up at night.

    Facilities
    The facilities at Euphoria Retreat combine the spirit of Byzantium with a rare intimacy and comfort.
    Elegantly curved domes and arches, a palette of soothing yellows and golds, and a design that harmonizes with nature. Euphoria Retreat offers a striking and modern interpretation on classical Byzantine artwork and architecture, within an inspiring minimalist Zen design.

    Every corner of Euphoria Retreat tells its own story. The cross vaults of the loggia which welcome you into a mood of monastic calm, the courtyards that mix shade with sunlight, and the long wooden tables of the GAIA Restaurant that encourage you to share your experiences with others.

    The Euphoria Retreat Spa
    The Euphoria Retreat Spa offers a transformative experience at every level.
    From the moment you take your first steps in the Euphoria Retreat spa, its front door angled to just the right degree to maximize its Feng shui, your journey begins. Built into the mountainside so that it becomes – quite literally – one with nature, it rises over four levels. Each is designed to represent a distinct passage in your transformational process, until you emerge fully revitalized and re-balanced.

    The mood shifts and the temperature drops even as you enter – just enough for the Byzantine domes and curves of the spa reception to take on a different mood to elsewhere in the resort. The consultation and therapy rooms inspire intimacy and reflection, and even the changing rooms possess a monastic charm. Once in the Pilates and gym studios, the atmosphere lifts and the energy levels soar. And you still haven’t even left the ground floor.

    Joining all four levels is a spiral staircase that doubles as a 25m deep Water well, with hot and cold foot baths at its base, offering yin and yang elements as well as the therapeutic effect of hydrotherapy. Indeed, the effect of water – and its elemental association with birth and contemplation – permeates all aspects of the spa.

    Dominating the first floor is the innovative Sphere Pool, whose curved walls are lined with hydrotherapy jets and in-water benches. The invigorating effects of the Tepidarium, Byzantine Hammam, Watsu Pool, Steam Room, Cold Plunge and circular Finnish Sauna follow, along with a beautifully appointed relaxation area and spa garden that allow you to fully unwind and soak up the benefits of everything you have just experienced.

    More treatment and relaxation areas await on the second floor, before the spa experience reaches its zenith. The yoga and meditation rooms on the top floor open onto an area that not only contains space for outdoor exercise and a California Hot Tub, but also offers panoramic views of the valley and the surrounding private forest.

    Nutrition:
    By measuring your redox status, our team of experts can tailor your exercise and meal plan to your body’s precise needs.

    Behind the healing program of Euphoria Retreat lies a unique, clinically-proven process that allows us to create fully personalized exercise and nutrition plans that significantly boost your metabolism and energy levels.

    A simple test gives our team of experts the information necessary at a microbiological level to precisely understand your body’s redox condition and its cellular needs in antioxidants, metabolic regulation, anti-ageing and longevity.

    Should your exercise routine involve interval-based anaerobic workouts, or a more measured anaerobic program? What should be the precise level of antioxidants in your diet? And what’s your ideal combination of protein, carbs and fat intake in each meal?

    The answers to these – and many other questions vital to your metabolic wellness – are determined through a patented technique called 3GL, which adds scientific grounding to the established benefits of traditional Chinese medicine and ancient Hellenic healing practices.

    How it works

    3GL is a personalized phenotypic health intervention based on nutrition and exercise, developed with Eucrasia, whose name refers to the Eucrasia Experience first defined by Hippocrates. At a scientific level, it measures and analyses the body’s levels of glutathione.

    In simpler terms, it quantifies the actual needs of your body in fuel, antioxidants and cellular protection.

    How They do it

    Just a few drops of blood and the answers to a questionnaire allow the redox condition of your body to be accurately measured, primarily through levels of glutathione, one of the most important endogenous antioxidants affecting lifestyle diseases such as morbid obesity, and even forms of cancer and auto-immune illness.

    From this simple blood test, supported by results of clinical studies, it is also possible to assess the levels of blood glucose and glycogen, which also affect metabolic balance.

    A unique model

    Unique to Euphoria Retreat, this is a model centered on the ground-breaking findings of James Watson, the father of modern biology, and more than two decades of research and numerous scientific publications in the field of human physiology, cell metabolism, nutritional biochemistry and ergo-physiology by the Biochemistry and Biotechnology department of the University of Thessaly (Greece).

    Building on the knowledge that free radicals that become detached from redox molecules, can become harmful to the human body if they don’t reattach to those molecules or an antioxidant, clinical studies were carried out on the redox status of elite athletes and more than 3,000 cases of obesity, diabetes and patients with metabolic syndromes.

    In this way, it was possible to support Watson’s findings that maintaining a glutathione threshold is necessary to decrease the body’s bad genotypes – and therefore support anti-ageing and metabolic wellness.

    Boost or reduce?

    As glutathione levels are affected by age, vigorous exercise and physical condition, it is often necessary to boost or reduce its level for the optimal threshold to be reached. This is done by either stimulating the body’s cells – for instance with aerobic exercise and following a diet lower in antioxidants – or countering the stress in cells with a more leisurely workout program and eating foods rich in antioxidants (pomegranates, melon, kiwi etc).

    In all cases, 3GL Therapy is designed to be accompanied by smaller, regular meals taken throughout the day. Guests who book a Euphoria Retreat spa program will, therefore, benefit from two complimentary healthy snacks which, not only taste delicious, but also significantly boost metabolism and energy levels, allowing your body to reach a level of antioxidants to improve longevity and good health.

    Location

    Euphoria Retreat is nestled on the slopes of the Sacred Mt. Taygetos in the fortified medieval city of Mystras (near Sparta) in Peloponnese, Greece.

    The extraordinary diversity and richness of the Peloponnese will capture your soul. Astonishing natural beauty, ancient and medieval landmarks and a special energy that continues to inspire creativity and enlightenment … the drama of the landscape surrounding Euphoria Retreat is but a microcosm of the Peloponnese.

    With a backdrop of Mt Taygetus, rising to a full 2,407m above sea level, the grand scene of nature and adventure spills out before you as you arrive at Euphoria Retreat. The combination of deep ravines and a dark green blanket of fir and pine trees gives the tallest mountain in the Peloponnese an aura that begs to be explored on foot or simply admired from afar.
