Shanti Maurice gets sister resort on Mykonos

03 Jul 2019
A new Shanti spa has opened on the Greek island of Mykonos, perched on the cliff of Agios Stefanos and overlooking the Aegean Sea.

Oniro Mykonos – A Shanti Collection Resort is a 5-star luxury boutique hotel, and is based on the same principles of sister hotel Shanti Maurice, an iconic spa destination in Mauritius with a 70,000sq ft spa.

Reflecting authentic Cycladic architecture tracing fingerprints of the Greek history, the hotel offers 29 bedrooms.

While the Shanti Spa at Oniro Mykonos is smaller than its Mauritian sister, it features an international selection of wellness treatments, as well as two treatment rooms, a steambath, sauna, rain showers and an extensive gym with yoga rooms and sea views.

Massage oils designed for Shanti signature treatments are created specifically for the spa by Michael Isted of The Herball. Isted is a trained phytotherapist, aromatherapist and nutritionist, and has created massage oils balms and scents from ingredients from Mykonos.

Signature treatments include a Shanti Fusion massage, which uses aromatherapy; a Shanti Relief massage, which combines Eastern and Western massage technique work and pressure; and a Mykonian Mixed Massage, which features different techniques including ayurveda, lymphatic, anti-stress, reflexology and deep tissue. A 90-minute Royal Honey body treatment uses royal jelly and honey straight from the behives of Apivita.
