The Asian Spa Ayurvedic & City Retreat Group is a successful partnership between Aliki Vatidi, a Greek entrepreneur with international background on hospitality and tourism, and Alexandra Mantzouki, a former executive of the stockbroking sector of the Bank of Piraeus and passionate follower of the tourism and spa industry.
The hope and intention was to create spa locations in Greece which would incorporate the very best of both Asian and Western treatments, in surroundings equivalent to those found in the most luxurious spas and resorts throughout the world.
The first step was a pilot project. In 2008 within the Gouvia premises, suburb of Corfu, the directors, created a luxurious spa environment: individually designed Ayurvedic treatment suites equipped with authentic hardwood furnishings and western treatment rooms elegantly finished, using natural wood, neutral colours and clean lines.
Once complete, the new spa at Gouvia quickly became a popular destination. Popularity and profitability proved to the directors and onlookers alike that their business concept was viable, and their product/brand well received. Thus, they began to broaden the corporate sphere by applying the qualities and experience gathered throughout their pilot scheme, by launching new Asian Spas at other top Greek luxury travel destinations. In addition, they introduced the Home & Yacht service, which provides 5* spa treatments in the privacy of guests’ accommodation or onboard their luxury yachts.
Today, the Asian Spa Group holds a leading position in the Greek Spa and Wellness Market, successfully operating high quality spas in individual locations in Athens and Corfu as well as in collaboration with distinguished international 5-star hotel chains -Intercontinental, Hyatt, Starwood- throughout Greece.
The ‘Easy Spa’ concept
In 2013, the Asian Spa Ayurvedic & City Retreat Group launched a new spa concept, the “Easy Spa”. Its philosophy: a “spa for all”. The “Easy Spas” which operate today at 2 Louis Hotels in Corfu (Glyfada, Alykes Potamou), the Sentido Plagos Beach in Zakynthos as well as at the Sheraton Rhodes Resort – Starwood, invite all spa fans to enjoy a variety of treatments… easily, in their simple, funky and modern ambiences, by offering treatments that start from 9€.
The ‘Easy Spa Premium’ concept
In 2107, the Asian Spa Group’s ongoing growth as well as the diversity in the needs of the collaborating hotels, led to the initiation of one more spa concept, the ‘Easy Spa Premium’. Couple’s only treatments, treatment packages in special prices, individual treatments that include the use of incredible products such as green tea & jasmine, red grapefruit, pomegranate & fig etc. have been included in the menus of the first two ‘Easy Spa Premium’ located in Corfu island: the Atlantica Grand Mediterraneo Resort & Spa and the Atlantica Nissaki Beach.
The Asian Spa Group has developed and embraced a philosophy that combines Eastern therapies with modern Western techniques, brought together in a harmonious environment to the benefit of all their guests. The Asian Spa Group is dedicated to providing high quality, “tailor-made” services to each guest in order to ensure the delivery of a unique spa experience.
The Asian Spa Group’s priority is to offer the highest quality treatments provided by exceptionally skilled staff, within aesthetically elegant premises. The experienced and skilled therapists, have all been extensively educated and trained in prestigious Universities such as the Ananda Himalaya, and have gathered a wealth of experience throughout their professional life. Additionally, ongoing training and education are a priority even for the most experienced therapists, building on existing knowledge to ensure each and every guest receives a unique spa experience.
