Why Greece for a wellbeing holiday?
Greece is experiencing a boom in its wellbeing travel offering. Emy Anagnostopoulou, director of the Greek National Tourism Organisation in London tells us more
“The development of health and spa tourism in Greece has been rapid. There is a significant growth of supply and service differentiation, with the majority of the five-star hotels owning spa centres with state-of-the-art facilities and specialised staff.”
“In the past year, we have seen a major increase in new hotels and resorts focusing heavily on wellbeing spread all around Greece from popular and established destinations to smaller islands and the mainland.”
“Greece is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of natural spas. Thermal and mineral springs appear at 850 different locations. Fourteen hydro-therapeutic centres treat around 100,000 people anually, with 1,400,000 therapeutic treatments.”
“Thalassotherapy combines relaxation, revitalisation, recreation and healing, all achieved in the ideal climate of Greece and using its excellent seawater. Natural resources are still in use but a holistic provision of body and soul is being introduced, including wide spectrum of fitness and wellness products and services.”
“With one of the best climates in the world, a unique variety of natural beauty, and one of the healthiest diets in the world, Greece is the ideal destination for wellbeing tourism.”
