Sea Spa: Six Senses Spa at the Belvedere Hotel, Mykonos

Sea Spa: Six Senses Spa at the Belvedere Hotel, Mykonos

Where is the Belvedere Hotel?

Sunglass-shaded high rollers have recovered by this hotel’s turquoise pool ⁠– surrounded by plush double mattress sunbeds, white parasols and fuchsia bougainvillea – for more than two decades. It lies just a short stiletto-clad stroll from the maze of cobbled streets and 16th-century windmills of Mykonos town in Greece. Loyal guests meet annually by the bar, where veteran DJ Hans Havenaar spins his tunes, to gorge on Chef Nobu’s cuisine at the poolside Matsuhisa Mykonos restaurant, which is considered one of the best waterfront restaurants in Greece.

What is the Six Senses Spa Like?

Six Senses opened its first spa on the island back in 2015. Like the rest of the hotel, it is small but perfectly formed with white walls, handmade local furniture and pops of Aegean blue. The three treatment rooms are bright without feeling clinical and the couple’s suite has a striking exposed stone wall sculpted from the cliff.

Treatments at the Six Senses Spa, Belvedere Hotel

Pulled a muscle with some moves on the dance floor? A blissful Marma Massage is the way to go. Using firm flowing movements and marma therapy (a 5,000-year-old Ayurvedic system based on pressure points) it eliminates tightness and stress-related tension. Ask for Spiros to be your therapist – he is a multitasking wizard with his two hands working their independent magic (he must be incredibly good at rubbing his tummy and patting his head at the same time).

Best by boat

Avoid the cruise ships that plague the port and leave your yacht in the picturesque Ornos bay, which is less than 3km away.
