Spa treatments in Aidipsos, Evia and Athens


Save or share this post for later

I took myself off to the Northern Evia spa town of Aidipsos for a two night stay on my birthday in 2012. I wrote about my stay at the Knossos-Spa Hotel and the relaxing spa treatments I had in a post for the Greek Tourist Board here.

Aidipsos is in Northern Evia…although ghost town quiet in the winter, it’s different and rather romantic, if not dramatic!

Olive Tree Spa - Athens

Olive Tree Spa – Athens

One weekend of relaxing massages and seaweed scrubs wasn’t enough for me, so I researched and contacted the Olive Tree Spa in Athens for a Reflexology treatment and facial the following week.

Situated two streets behind The Hilton Hotel, it was centrally located and easy to find.

I was warmly greeted by the Receptionist and presented with green tea, a warm facial cloth and water as well as given slippers to wear.

What a nice respite from the cold, rainy weather outside! I gladly slipped into my bathrobe in my room, lay on the bed and let the music flow over me whilst my therapist spent one and a half hours on my feet and lower legs: massaging pressure points and generally making me feel fab.

Next came the facial and half an hour of different scrubs, peels and warm facial cloths, I exited my lovely treatment room glowing and walking on air!

I will certainly be going back again as the ambiance offered was fabulous: low key yet friendly and relaxing.

The Olive Tree Spa is open seven days a week from 11am to 9pm and offers all manner of spa treatment services.  If you’re in Athens for any length of time, do make sure you visit.


  1. I went only once for a SPA treatment (actually it was an entire spa weekend in Slovenia). I loved the treatment, but for my taste the whole SPA weekend was a bit too much (too slow, too relaxed :-). What kind of products do they use at Olive Tree Spa – something local, natural and olive-based or? Lovely photos. Love that pier! Thanks so much for linking up to the #SundayTraveler.

  2. Yes, I think a whole weekend would be too much. I spent time in a hotel my weekend in Edipsos and then had the occasional treatment, interspersed with exploring the area.
    Olive Tree Spa in Athens is great. They use local products and I treat myself once a month to a Reflexology session.

  3. Wow – that sounds amazing! Everyone needs a bit of pampering now and then, and it sounds like they really know what they’re doing….:)

  4. Thanks for all the comments. Yes, I now try to go to Olive Tree Spa ever 1.5 months to treat myself to a Reflexology. And Ediposos in the springtime will be lovely I am sure! A bit spooky at winter.
