Interview With Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort, The Luxury Lifestyle Awards Winner for Best Luxury Thalasso & Spa Resort in Greece, 2023

 

Ideally situated in the Halkidiki region of Greece, the Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort is a luxury resort that offers its guests a breathtaking paradise, with a pristine Greek beachfront, crystal clear Aegean Ocean, and a natural hot spring rich in traditional therapeutic qualities. The Luxury Lifestyle Awards winning resort for Best Luxury Thalasso & Spa Resort in Greece 2023 is leading the sustainability movement in the Mediterranean, and to learn a bit more about their revolutionary spa and wellness center, and the beauty of the Halkidiki coast, we borrowed a bit of their time to ask a few questions.

Luxury Lifestyle Awards: Please tell us a bit about how Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort was created and the influence behind its stunning design.

Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort: 

A long time ago, one Greek family had land in the Kanistro area and they had a dream to build a small boutique hotel. The miracle happened once the construction had started as a hidden underground thermal spring lake was discovered. This is how the whole architecture planned changed and the huge property with 300 rooms and its outstanding Spa as a temple of the hidden gem was created. The creature got its name, Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort – it is a miracle where the best memories start.

Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort combines the alluring natural beauty of Halkidiki with the dazzle of innovative modern architecture, creating a world-class destination made for fans of fitness and wellbeing. The resort’s location and design offer an exceptional standpoint from where one can admire the wonderful horizon all the way to Mount Athos, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Signature design by the awarded architect Aspasia Taka with the use of ecologically clean materials, exclusive furniture, and stylish fabrics is what distinguishes our spacious and perfectly equipped rooms with their own private pool with an undisrupted sea view.

LLA: How was the incredible Natural Hot Spring discovered and what makes it so special?

MTSR:

As said in a previous question, the miracle happened once the construction had started as a hidden underground thermal spring lake was discovered on this special land. This is how the whole architecture planned changed and the huge property with 300 rooms and its outstanding Spa as a temple of the hidden gem was created.

A healing universe ideally established at the heart of Miraggio Resort on a mineral-rich underground hot spring, overlooking the magnificence of the Aegean Sea, Myrthia Thermal Spa is the awarded wellness center combining the ancient Greek art of water-healing with all the riches of its unique local water sources into a tailored, life-changing experience.

LLA: Halkidiki has become a hugely popular tourist destination. What is it about this region that is so popular amongst travelers?

MTSR:

One of the most beautiful contrasts of green and blue in Greece, Halkidiki is a unique holiday destination that fits many different styles. Forest and sea, picturesque villages, beach bars, gourmet restaurants, turquoise waters, and postcard-like sunsets make for a setting that exceeds the expectations of its visitors.

LLA: What separates Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort from other luxury resorts in the area?

MTSR: 

The resort is built like an amphitheater across 13.6 hectares of secluded land, with its own stretch of Blue Flag beach and amazing views across the Aegean Sea to mystical Mount Athos in the distance.

Myrthia Thermal Spa’s power derives directly from Earth. It takes advantage of Halkidiki’s natural thermal springs. Myrthia Thermal Spa spring, known as Kanistro Water and officially recognized as Thermal Natural Resource by the National Committee on Natural Thermal Resources Protection. All treatment products our Spa experts use are either Germaine De Capuccini or Dr. Barbara Sturm.

Kids’ Planet at Miraggio is designed specifically for young guests and its entrance is complimentary for Children 5 – 12 years old under supervision, offering an interactive amusement park with animatronic cartoon heroes, daily shows, a splash park, and a cafe.

Guests can choose from eight restaurants and enjoy international and Mediterranean cuisine with the very best local ingredients, curated by our Executive Chef Lefteris Soultatos.

Marina Miraggio has the capacity to accommodate 81 yachts up to 40m offering a wide range of services including round-the-clock security and manning across the 50,000 sqm site. Marina Miraggio is the only facility of this kind on the southwest side of the Kassandra peninsula, and also, the closest docking point in Halkidiki from the islands of Sporades.

Last but not least, our conference facilities consisting of two main halls with breakout rooms can accommodate up to 480 pax. There are two distinct halls one of which can be separated into four rooms that in turn can be combined, or joined according to the occasion.

LLA: The Myrthia Thermal Spa spring and its Kanistro water are recognized as a thermal natural resource. Can you tell us a bit more about this and what it means?

MTSR:

In the heart of Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort an ancient fountain of care and rejuvenation flows.

Its distance from the sea is 240m. Its sea-meteoric origins, however, travel a long way in the subsoil, reaching up to Mountain Olympus, the legendary residence of the ancient Greek gods. Kanistro Water gushes to the surface through primordial rocks from a depth of 270 meters at a temperature of about 30-32˚C. Its minerality is formed during its course, while its temperature decreases at the end of the upward path, due to its mixing with cold surface groundwater waters.

Kanistro Water is characterized as thermal water; warm, mineral, Cl-, Na+, K+, J, As+++ Br-, B, highly carbonated, hypertonic, and weakly radioactive.

Its locality, origins, and natural composition define its healing value; Myrthia Thermal Spa highlights it and shares it with the world!

As Kanistro Spring Water flows nearby the sea wave, Myrthia Thermal Spa conveys a major privilege for each one of our guests; it combines thermal hydrotherapy & thalassotherapy in a holistic soothing ritual that stimulates the body, improves the immune system and liberates the spirit.

Discover this maximum feeling of water healing exclusively at Myrthia Thermal Spa!

LLA: The Myrthia Thermal Spa is one of the best in the world. Can you tell us a bit more about it and why it’s so unique?

MTSR:

Kanistro water, our geothermal spring, and the Aegean Sea supply Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort with energy and healing power. Myrthia Thermal Spa leverages this advantage through its facility covering 3,000m2 on two levels. Infinite water, light, wood, and marble; its design reflects nature. The great thalassotherapy pool is directly linked to the sea with water that is heated and maintained at a stable temperature while there is another Thalasso that becomes an infinity pool. The hydrotherapy area features three natural hot water pools and a rest area with a bar and magnificent views over the Aegean Sea and Mount Athos. As Kanistro Spring Water flows nearby the sea wave, Myrthia Thermal Spa conveys a major privilege for each one of our guests; it combines thermal hydrotherapy & thalassotherapy in a holistic soothing ritual that stimulates the body, improves the immune system and liberates the spirit.

LLA: The Marina Miraggio is sure to attract some beautiful boats. How do your guests benefit from this stunning marina?

MTSR:

Surrounded by the crystal clear water of the Aegean and the unique sites of the Resort, Marina Miraggio is a premier year-round recreational yachting facility.

Guests have the five-star accommodation picks, the top-notch leisure facilities, and the exceptional nature of the Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort.

LLA: The minimum impact on sea flora and fauna was a huge consideration when designing the marina. How do you ensure that your marina has such a low impact on the surrounding environment, and do you believe this is something that most resorts are conscious of?  

MTSR:

Our main considerations were, the minimum impact on sea flora and fauna as well as on the surrounding area, along with the maximum physical water circulation in order to keep the marina water clean and avoid bacteria development that impacts the yachts’ hull.

That’s why the marina has an open Π shape, with a long list of structural innovations, one of those the longest quay of this (bridge) type in Greece (Length 110 meters).

LLA: Other than the revolutionary design of your marina, what other steps has the Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort taken to remain as sustainable as possible?
