The hotel features all modern amenities you’d expect from any 5-star resort, and then some. Platanias, for those who’ve never visited, is a beach holiday paradise of taverns, shops, bars and restaurants, a bustling center full of activity and entertainment just outside Crete’s most photographed city, Chania. On the new spa development, Mr. Kapakis, president of the resort, has this to say:
“We have managed to develop a high standard hotel and Spa unit in the region of Chania, Crete and therefore attract a different type of high end International tourist, looking for integrated vacation services, to our region.”
The Sparking Spa treatments are inspired by Indian, Thail and Moroccan methods combined with herbs and oils from Crete. There is the therapeudic element accentuated with beauty and cosmetic facets and environment, to create a complete spa environment. There’s also an indoor Hydrotonic pool, a relaxation area and a large communal wet area with a Turkish Hamam (Steam Room) , Sauna, footbaths (with hot and cold water for Kneipp Therapy), an ice cave and an “Experience Shower”, where light, water, movement, and reflections play a major role.
