Go to the Thermae Sylla and you will be impressed by the building and grounds. Yet the best of the property is not in the infrastructure, spacious rooms or delicious restaurants. It is in the healing powers of its waters and the many treatments that are on offer here. Internationally known and respected, Thermae Sylla is Greece’s top hot spring destination. With its historical premises being built over a series of thermal springs decades ago, the hotel has a variety of indoor and outdoor pools that impress.
Originating from a depth of over 3 kilometres with temperatures exceeding 80º Celsius, the therapeutic waters are cooled down to between 28-32º for use in the pools and contain large amounts of iron, radon, sulphur, magnesium, and calcium. These properties have made it ideal for treating a plethora of illnesses such as arthritis, gynaecological disorders, skin ailments and musculoskeletal diseases as well as aches and pains throughout the body. Also noteworthy, the thermal waters in the two pools are changed every single day, thanks to the abundance of new hot water bubbling up from the earth.
The nutritious waters from the springs are also beneficial cosmetically, and the spa’s mud scrub and water treatments stimulate reinvigoration from within. Massage treatments and aromatherapy are the perfect indulgence and give guests an extra glow during their stay.
Since healing and rejuvenation go hand in hand with comfort and relaxation, all guest rooms have been designed with a touch of luxury and modern amenities such as minibar, satellite TV, and spacious bathrooms. All the rooms boast views either out to sea or to the pool area. Dining is both health-conscious and delicious, with the hotel’s restaurant serving a rich breakfast from pure local products including yogurt, cheese, eggs, bread, marmalade and fresh fruit. Traditional and Modern Greek cuisine is served in both of the hotel’s restaurants. Those with diet restrictions are well taken care of, thanks to custom-made menus and special requests.
The best way to benefit from the healing powers of Thermae Sylla is to check in for at least a week, although many people opt for a two-week stay. The outdoor patio will also thrill you, and the indoor bar at the lobby is a cozy place to congregate. Stroll in the delightful quiet town by the sea, eat well at the hotel, swim in thermal waters, try some amazing spa treatments, visit the gym if you like, and let a whole new you emerge (there are even some amazing stories of people who have been cured of serious diseases here). If you’re looking for a place to heal and to rediscover the inner you, this is definitely it!
