With summer on the horizon it’s the perfect time to start thinking about where your next adventure will be. And so with that in mind we thought we’d take a closer look at Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort, and put together our top reasons to consider this Grecian paradise as a destination for your travels…
At the tip of Halkidiki’s Kassandra Peninsula, Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort opened in 2016 and has established itself as a superb choice for a European getaway. The seafront enclave is spread over 330 acres, with a focus on environmental sustainability; from the innovative water GeoExchange system to the energy-efficient green roofs.
The resort is situated in an area of natural beauty; where guests can enjoy views out over the Aegean Sea, walk amongst ancient olive groves and sink their toes into the golden stretch of sand. A unique feature of the resort is the marina, surrounded by stunningly clear water and designed to maximise the natural flow of the sea. Accommodating up to 81 yachts, the marina was awarded the ‘Blue Flag’ by the European Union, and is a spectacular place to enjoy sparkling sea views.
A highlight of your stay here will undoubtedly be the Myrthia Thermal Spa at the heart of the resort, where you’ll find an underground hot spring with mineral enriched waters and a heated thalassotherapy pool which connects to the Aegean Sea. Other spa features include an outdoor infinity pool, sensory showers, herbal sauna and fitness zone. Relax in the hydrotherapy area’s four hot pools and enjoy a drink at the bar, which boasts great views out over Mount Athos.
Miraggio is a great option for family holidays too, with a variety of spacious rooms and suites perfect for you and your brood. While you enjoy some well-earned rest your little ones can have a whale of a time at Kids Planet, with crèche and kids’ club facilities for younger guests aged from 4 months up to 12-years-old. From the playground to the Splash Park to the indoor areas, there’s plenty of fun to be had with an experienced team armed with games and toys.
Dining is always a highlight of a holiday, and the array of eating options on offer here is excellent. Buffet restaurant Kritamo is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner; while Oasis Pool Restaurant is the place to go for burgers, salads and poolside snacks. At Portofino guests can enjoy a range of fresh Italian cuisine – from pasta and pizza to tiramisu, tarts and terrines for dessert. To take advantage of this prime coastal location we recommend dining at Toroneo at least once during your stay; the seafront seafood restaurant serves fresh local produce accompanied by unforgettable views.
When you’re not lounging on the beach, enjoying sumptuous fare in the restaurants or sampling a cocktail or two in one of the five bars, there’s plenty more to keep you entertained. Watersports enthusiasts will find an array of options – including wakeboarding, waterskiing, stand-up paddleboarding and canoeing. There’s also the Miraggio Diving Academy, which offers a choice of PADI-certified programmes and cave snorkelling excursions. On land, enjoy tennis, hiking or one of the daily selection of entertainment activities; these might include anything from beach volleyball to themed dance nights. The resort’s location also means there’s plenty of opportunity to explore – perhaps go on a city tour of Thessaloniki or take in the scenic panoramas from a hot air balloon.
