April opening for Goco Spa Daios Cove
Spa consultancy and management company Goco Hospitality has announced the opening of a new spa on the Greek island of Crete this spring.
The 2,500sq m Goco Spa Daios Cove is set to open at the five-star Daios Cove Luxury Resort & Villas on April 15.
The spa will feature eight treatment rooms, including two VIP suites and a Thai massage room, a fitness centre and movement studio, and two indoor pools.
There will also be a thermal suite with a Finnish and a gentler sauna, experience showers, a Mediterraneo – combined sauna and steam room – and beach cabanas for outdoor therapies.
Treatments will include the Cretan Renaissance Ceremony, a two-hour signature treatment using locally sourced herbs like lavender, rosemary and oregano and including a salt exfoliation, red wine wrap and massage with herbal poultices.
A resident yoga master will offer yoga and meditation sessions. Also under development is the 50-room Goco Retreat Daios Cove, scheduled to open in late 2018 as “a wellness resort within the resort”.
The retreat will offer health and wellness services such as diagnostics, consultations, and wellness programmes. There will also be a restaurant serving healthy food, and lifestyle workshops by wellbeing experts.
Ingo Schweder, founder and chief executive of Goco Hospitality, said the new spa and retreat would “bring a modern and sophisticated wellness experience”.
