An ancient Greek word, ‘Euphoria’ is about living in bliss, feeling balanced and healthy and well. It is for anyone wanting to step away from the technological advances of modern life and immerse themselves in a peaceful setting.

Offering unique pools indoor and out, there are various ways to rejuvenate at Euphoria. At the very heart of Euphoria’s spa, you’ll find this distinctly avant-garde sphere pool – surrounded by cocooning Byzantine domes inspired by the architecture of the iconic Hagia Sophia church, this ritualistic experience is unique and breathtaking. Most guests revel in the enveloping womb-like sensation, where soothing marine sounds play softly under the water, transporting you to a sensory world, where dreams are born.
The 45 rooms and suites provide the perfect sanctuary. No two rooms are the same; all have their own unique touches. The luxuriously monastic interiors are inspired by the iconography of the Byzantine era and subtly layer and combine patterns, textures, and colors to unique effect. Every detail has been designed to invite you to slow down and rest; yet many rooms also offer a private balcony, terrace, or courtyard to uplift and inspire. Ideal for those who need more space to work or who are serious about retreating and want to experience absolute privacy, these soothing interiors set a new benchmark when it comes to luxurious spa hotels in Greece.
Greece is known for glorious summer weather, with clear blue skies from May to September. Most of the country’s rain occurs during the winter months, from October through March.
