Spa days in Santorini

As one of the most glamorous and indulgent of the Greek islands, it’s no surprise that Santorini takes wellness and therapeutic treatments very seriously.

Indulge no matter where you stay

It’s easy to find a first class spa hotel to stay in so you can glide over to the treatment rooms or sauna whenever you feel like it.

Some even put together weekly spa programmes as part of the price so you can have a taste of some of the therapies each day and go back for more of what you like.

But if you aren’t staying at a resort with a spa on tap, that’s no problem. Our guide also covers where to go to spend spa days in gorgeous setting, or you could just arrange for a massage therapist to come right to your hotel.

That’s right – there are also skilled mobile massage services in Santorini. We wouldn’t expect anything less! Here are four of the best spas you’ll find in Santorini.

Santo Maris Oia Luxury Suites and Spa, Oia

For romantic couples breaks

This collection of 5* poolside suites and seaview junior suites has a spacious 300 metre2 spa offering facials, massage and other relaxing therapies.

Santorini Zen Spa, mobile

For a spa that comes to you

Even if you’re not staying at one of Santorini’s spa hotels, you can get the luxury service with a summer or winter mobile massage from Santorini Zen Spa.

They’ll come to your hotel room or villa for deep tissue, aloe vera after-sun or even instructional couples relaxing aromatherapy massages using Neal’s Yard Remedies, Ahava and homemade organic products.

For the full experience, but in the comfort of your own accommodation, you could go for something like the three-hour Greek geo-spirulina aromatherapy face and body signature detox.
