Ease into the New Year with the “Precious Pampering Moments” Offer at Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens

January 12, 2023,
Athens, Greece

As the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates said, “Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity.” For the month of January, Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens is offering guests an opportunity to start 2023 with a holistic wellness mindset via its Precious Pampering Moments Offer: the chance to retreat to the sophisticated Athens Riviera for a one-night stay in a Nafsika Sea View Room with special savings and a signature THERAPEIA treatment at the Hotel’s stunning Spa.

Inspired by Greece’s ancient history of bathing ceremonies and honouring the Hippocratic belief that rest is integral to wellbeing and holistic health, the Spa at Four Seasons Astir Palace is a light-filled sanctuary of surrender with therapeutic sea views. The healing power of water is showcased to great effect in The Fountain House: an adults-only hydrotherapy haven comprising an aroma steam grotto, chill showers, sauna and hammam facilities - accessible to all guests and an integral addition to the Precious Pampering Moments Offer. Guests availing of the offer are invited to take time prior to their treatment to open skin pores, relax tight muscles and relax their minds in The Fountain Room or adjacent sauna and steam rooms to yield maximum benefits from their THERAPEIA experience.

Designed to powerfully dissolve tension, realign emotions and restore a sense of balance, each bespoke 60-minute THERAPEIA treatment is tailored to the needs of each guest. Bespoke massage techniques, preferred target areas, and a choice of essential oils from local indigenous botanicals such as oregano, lavender, thyme and eucalyptus combine to deliver multi-sensory benefits.

“There is a special energy at this piece of paradise in Vouliagmeni,” says Spa Director Stella Arvanitakou. “Our Spa glorifies the earth of Vouliagmeni and the water surrounding it by using local herbs, botanicals and fragrant Greek aromas. This is what life should be all about: finding balance, feeling alive and being inspired.”

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, also acknowledged the basic need for harmony between an individual and their natural environment for true health to be achieved. The Hotel’s location amid a peaceful forest of pines overlooking the Aegean Sea makes it an idyllic nature-lovers’ sanctuary and the ideal spot for harmonious relaxation.

Central to the Precious Pampering Moments Offer is a restorative stay basking in the stunning views of the sea and the Hotel’s private beach from a spacious Nafsika Sea View Room. With a sun-dappled balcony for lounging, dining, journaling, or just daydreaming to a backdrop of healing blues and birdsong, these haven-like rooms allow for a full retreat from the world.

Guests will emerge ready to embrace the rest of 2023 with full hearts, serene souls and blissful memories; Hippocrates would no doubt have approved.

Note that a session in The Fountain House should ideally be booked in conjunction with a THERAPEIA treatment, to ensure numbers are limited in the Spa’s calming communal areas.
