On our way to Casale Panayiotis, even after we had heard many positive reviews, we were not quite convinced that we would see something extraordinary. We completely changed our mind when we arrived at the hotel. We reviewed the hotel Casale Panayiotis in our previous article, but now we want to describe the real gem in the hotel’s crown — the Myrianthousa spa, which is unique not only for Cyprus, but, in our opinion, can be compared to luxurious spas found in many European cities.
The name of the spa, «Myrianthousa», meaning “a lot of flowers”, was given to it due to the fact that around the village there are a lot of almond, apple and cherry trees that fill the area with flowers and colours.
All year round water trickles down from the natural sulphur springs that have attracted pilgrims and tourists to the village for centuries.
The spa itself is amazing for true lovers of relaxation and energizing. Do you remember Pushkin’s fairy tale, “The Little Humpbacked Horse”? Remember how the king was told he would regain his youth after bathing in the three baths? Well, here you will not be deceived. Passing through all the steam baths and the sauna, and between them visiting a room with real snow, which is the only one in Cyprus, and then relaxing around the indoor pool with a Jacuzzi and panoramic views of the majestic mountains of Troodos, you will feel that your body is simply brimming with energy and bliss at the same time.
At the Myrianthousa spa they offer massages and beauty treatments for the face and body, these being carried out with Apivita cosmetics from Greece, which contain only natural ingredients.
We were particularly impressed by the “Just for two” treatment: whether you are a couple, spending some romantic time together, or visiting the spa with friends for the weekend, it makes an excellent choice.
In a separate room with a mountain view, experience specialists give you a massage simultaneously, and then give you the opportunity to relax in the open space with a separate Jacuzzi. Comfortably sitting on the soft pillows, you feel that you are on the top of the world, and enjoy the fruit and glass of sparkling wine included in the cost of the treatment. In our view, the cost of this pleasure is relatively small – 195 euros for two people for the whole range of services. The price also includes a visit to the steam baths, an indoor pool and a snow room. This treatment would be an unforgettable birthday present or a wedding gift for friends or relatives.
It is also worth noting that, if you want treatments for the face and body and any of the other spa services, booking the hotel through the spa will get you an additional discount!
Believe me, if you are on the hunt for the best spa in Cyprus, the Myrianthousa spa is one of the best on offer. We checked it ourselves!
