The Thermae Sylla Spa Wellness Hotel, situated at the spa of Edipsos on the Island of Euboea, Greece, is a majestic neoclassical building dating from 1897.
The thermal curative waters of Edipsos have been known ever since an era preceding the 4th Century BC according to the descriptions of ancient Greek philosophers, like Aristotle, Strabo and Plutarch, not to mention Hippocrates, the father of scientific medicine, who was the first to introduce hydrotherapy as a method of curing several diseases in the mid 5th Century BC.
Ever since then, Edipsos has experienced periods of rise and decline, reaching the peak of its glory during the epoch of Roman Empire’s rule, when Roman general Syllas visited this town and was cured of the uric arthritis disease he had been suffering from by emerging in its curative waters. The fame of Edipsos was also great during the Belle Époque, when renowned Greek and foreign politicians, artists and tycoons, such as El. Venizelos, C. Palamas, M. Callas, Omar Sharif, Greta Garbo, Ar. Onasis and W. Churchill spent pleasant times of recreation, curative relaxation, rejuvenation and entertainment at the Thermae Sylla Spa Wellness Hotel.
The therapeutic power of Edipsos’ curative waters is of great interest and attributed to the fact that they contain an abundance of metal salts and trace elements (32-45 gr. per litre) consisted mainly of iron, calcium and magnesium at water temperatures ranging from 70o to 85o Celsius as well as to the fact that they spring out from thermometal wells of a 3,000 meter depth.
The beneficial results of this spa’s waters have been observed clearly in rheumatologic, arthritic and kinetic diseases, chronic inflammations and general complaints of the musculoskeletal system as well as in gynaecologic diseases.
Today, having been fully renovated and combining modern technologies in terms of curative balneo-laspotherapy, the 5-star Thermae Sylla Spa Wellness Hotel provides its guests with curative water of excellent quality both by its own water springs and the other springs of Edipsos in a friendly luxurious environment priding traditional and modern pioneering application methods catering for every age throughout the year. This hotel is a “cure palace” equipped with a carefully-designed spa and medical wellness facilities in combination with high standard services.
This precious therapeutic water, the beauty recipes made from herbs that have been applied here since antiquity and the modern therapy techniques applied at the Thermae Sylla Spa Wellness Hotel will help one regain one’s vigour and liveliness.
Special programmes aiming at the care of both the body and the face as well as meeting every guest’s needs for relaxation, hydration, tightening and stress removal for both men and women are worked out in conjunction with medical doctors.
Thermae Sylla Spa Wellness Hotel’s philosophy, in the context of which a natural healthy diet plays a significant role, lies in the accomplishment of the ideal equilibrium of mind, body and spirit. We aim at serving delicacies of a healthy cuisine enriched by home-made food flavours that will excite you., being of the opinion that emphasis should be laid on ingredients principally and then on flavour because food plays an important role in acquiring rejuvenation, which accounts for the fact that we use fresh raw materials exclusively. Virgin olive oil produced in our estate under ecologically-congenial conditions is the basis of our cuisine, which is the reason why the Thermae Sylla Spa Wellness Hotel has been classified quite justifiably among the 10 most medically correct ones in the world by the Conde Nast Traveller England organisation and has been chosen as the best spa in Greece by the visitors of the Philoxenia international fair of Thessalonica, Greece, for the 3rd consecutive year.
According to specialised medical doctors’ view about the overall results of rejuvenation, relaxation, recreation and therapy it provides, a guest’s stay at the Thermae Sylla Spa Wellness Hotel should last from 15 to 21 days twice a year if this is possible.
Therefore, it is curative water at the Thermae Sylla Spa Wellness Hotel that makes the difference since…spa means an area flown across by therapeutic waters.
