I’m a sucker for a luxury wellness retreat and Greece is one of my favorite destinations in the world (second only to The Maldives and tied with Bali!) Therefore, an article about the best wellness retreats in Greece just makes sense. I mean, what could be better than caring for your well being in the lap of luxury whilst soaking up the stunning Greek scenery? This is one of the first places I’m going to head when the pandemic is over, so let’s take a look at the best wellness retreats the country has to offer.

The award-winning Euphoria Retreat never fails to impress with its Byzantine architecture and deeply philosophical approach to wellness. It’s most definitely one of the best wellness retreats in Greece.
The Greek philosopher Epicurus believed that happiness was the goal of human life. Euphoria bases its goal of “healing through joy” on this very theory and combines Hellenic and Taoist philosophy to provide guests with a holistic healing experience.
A stay at Euphoria is a deeply transformative personal journey. Upon arrival, the resort’s team of consultants, coaches and therapists put together a personalised holistic healing plan for you to help you redefine what wellness means in the context of your own life.
If you read my guide to the best wellness retreats in the USA, you may remember me talking about Amangiri, the exceptional luxury resort in the midst of the Utah desert. Amanzoe is Amangiri’s equally impressive sister property in Kranidi. It’s definitely one of the most luxurious wellness retreats in Greece.
Amanzoe is a short helicopter ride away from Athens – that’s right, this wellness retreat really starts in style!
Time seems to stand still in the luxurious setting of Amanzoe. There’s a clean, timeless elegance about this retreat. Aman Resorts architect Edward Tuttle has seamlessly combined ancient Greek architecture with airy, modern minimalism.
Whether you want to partake in watersports, enjoy a therapeutic olive oil and beeswax massage or experience a full moon yoga class, there’s plenty to keep you occupied at Amanzoe.
The food here is nothing short of amazing and the chef uses only the finest and freshest local ingredients. You’ll even have the chance to visit the local market and help pick out produce for the day.
A stay at the Six Senses is always a special experience, especially in Elounda. You’re constantly inspired by the tranquil setting and breathtaking views of the Aegean sea.
The 5 or 7 night Yogic Detox program offers guests a noninvasive cleanse to sharpen the mind, strengthen the body and recalibrate the physical and spiritual balance. The Discover Yoga program also involves Reiki sessions.
As for treatments, the Abhyang Fusion Massage is really something special. Meanwhile, the Sense of Greece Ritual package is the perfect way to treat yourself from head to toe.
Located on the stunning island of Santorini, the Andronis Concept Wellness Resort offers guests breathtaking views, relaxing treatments and expert medical advice.
This beautiful hotel perfectly embodies the class and elegance of Santorini whilst offering a transformative wellness experience.
A team of natural healing experts can help you to get the most out of your spa experiences at Andronis. You can even request a hair profiling test in order to create a custom wellness program that perfectly suits your specific needs.
Meanwhile, the fully stocked gym, sunset yoga sessions and Greek cooking classes will ensure that you leave Andronis in tip-top physical condition.
This week-long retreat in Lefkada is an intense spiritual experience that will enrich your understanding of yoga and Buddhist meditation. This program really focuses on training you in these arts, rather than simply relaxing.
Wellness purists will love the Alchemist Retreat. There is no meat or alcohol allowed and you can even opt for a raw vegan menu. Each day starts with a 5.30am sunrise zen meditation session. I did say it was intense!
As for the villas themselves, they’re stylish and comfortable places to relax. You’ll be able to enjoy swimming in your own private infinity pool overlooking the Aegean Sean.
