Your ideal Mediterranean diet would consist of wine, salt water, and a Greek shipping heir. All good for the heart (if only temporarily).
Such appetites are exactly why one should retreat to Elaia Spa (Greek for olive) for some maintenance and moderation. The luxury space focuses on all-natural and ecofriendly ingredients in their services, too.
After a dip in the saline pool, head to one of twelve treatment rooms. Market Fresh scrubs and wraps use ingredients from local growers like cherries, lavender, and mint. For something more exotic, try Elaia’s signature massage and get lathered with organic olive oil. You’ll feel like a well-oiled machine.
And shaped up before you ship out.
