On the north coast of eastern Crete, Elounda is a pretty and well-protected bay. With individual treatment rooms sharing glorious views across tranquil turquoise waters, Six Senses Spa Elounda has won several top awards including Best Spa in Greece (Spafinder Readers’ Choice), Most Progressive Detox Program (Condé Nast Traveller Spa Awards) and more recently the Seven Stars Award (Seven Star Lifestyle and Hospitality Awards).
Staying in Greece, let’s hop islands. Known for its amazing beaches and great nightlife (it is actually just one long party), you may be forgiven for catching a few too many rays and not catching enough sleep while on Mykonos.
That’s why it feels extra blissful to enter the calming classic white walls, marble floors, timber features and Aegean blues of Six Senses Spa Mykonos.
Water and steam. Heat and ice. Sea and earth. Six Senses Spa Marbella combines the elements with the senses to create a fully immersive experience. The massages and wellness rituals use natural ingredients sourced from southern Spain including extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and mountain herbs.
The winter has provided a golden opportunity to spruce up the spa and fitness equipment at Six Senses Douro Valley. This includes a hydrotherapy circuit with powerful jets to soothe the legs, lumbar and neck and new underwater sensory experiences. The LED cromotherapy creates a constant color sequence while the underwater soothing sound therapy offers different vibes during the day. There is a hot tub to improve blood flow and cold plunge pool to relieve pain and reduce inflammation. The yoga room will also take on a whole new dimension.
As the popularity of yoga and meditation rise around the world, so too has interest in Ayurveda. This 5,000-year-old (give or take) Indian "science of life" focuses on healing imbalances in body’s doshas. According to Ayurveda, we are born with our unique ratio of three doshas or energy types, which include pitta, vata and kapha. Ayurvedic practitioners believe that each person has some vata, pitta and kapha in them, but that one or two may be dominant. Stress, lack of sleep, unhealthy diet or emotional imbalances disturb this energy equilibrium and can show up as a disease. Ayurvedic practitioners aim to bring the doshas back into balance.
At Six Senses Spa Kaplankaya, our Ayurvedic Doctors offer a personal consultation to help you determine your dosha and recommend a treatment that best fits your needs.
They have produced this online dosha quiz to help get you started.
Six Senses is pushing beyond traditional boundaries of well-being into less visible fields such as sacred energy and connection. What is our sixth sense, and how does it benefit us? Alberto Villoldo PhD tells us more.
