The resort has 4 restaurants and 6 bars, all excellent with an array of cuisines. We had breakfast at Kritamo, and it was incredible. Such an amazing variety of dishes, from milk with cereals, pastries, to many kinds of meats, cheese, and fish, as well as a chef cooking fresh eggs. There is also a healthy corner for the more responsible people. I had a hard time deciding what to have for breakfast, but every morning I was piling up on smoked mackerel, as it was absolutely delicious! Even Emma loved it, although she is not fussy when it comes to food. We’ve dined at the same restaurant a few times, buffet style and the options were impressive. A lot of seafood as per my heart’s desire, but hubby was happy too with the variety of steaks and veggies. With handpicked local ingredients, the kitchen venues will indulge your cosmopolitan spirit in no time. For a special dinner I would definitely recommend Portofino. You can enjoy a gourmet journey along the picturesque Italian Riviera. We’ve discovered the colorful and creative side of the Mediterranean gastronomy with exquisite authentic flavours. Order scallops in green peas puree for appetizers and the variety of Italian cold cuts and cheese platter. We’ve returned here another evening when Emma was finally asleep, and I had Seafood spaghetti, overlooking the sea and enjoying the sunset. It was magical! Make sure to order the Greek wines, they are delicious.
There is also Toroneo, the seafood restaurant right next to the sea waves. We’ve booked a special dinner here one evening, but we had to go back to Portofino because it was so windy, the plates would’ve ended up in the water. I was really looking forward to enjoying the tasty specialities, so I’ll have this as an incentive to return. Well, the entire resort is wonderful, worth visiting every year!At Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort you can enjoy food and drinks by the pool as well, at the Oasis pool restaurant or at any of the other bars in the hotel. The developers really considered this aspect important for a perfect holiday. Just sit back, admire the sunset appreciating every sip of life flowing from your glass.
BY THE POOL AND BY THE SEA
One of the main activities we loved while staying at Miraggio, was relaxing by the pool. There are 3 pools, including a small kids pool and an adult only pool, framed by palm trees. The main pool is really big, with a bridge leading to an island. The design is amazing, with small flower beds, a shading area for those midday hours, as well as stylish white parasols protecting from the heat of the day.
The beach is lined with loungers and parasols, so you get the comfort of the pool, or the real experience of the white sand and beach waves, overlooking the Aegean Sea capped with the hazy hilltops of a distant peninsula. Needless to say we experienced both, Emma really loved playing in the sand and in the pool equally.
WHAT TO DO
The pools, the beach and the general relaxation can keep you busy, but there are an array of activities designed especially for the guests. You can charter a yacht from Miraggio Marina for a scuba diving adventure, or you can enjoy archery, football, aqua-gym, table tennis, beach volleyball, dance, boules, yoga, Zumba, tennis. You can also borrow a mountain bike and cycle off into the pine forests nearby.
Families are well looked after at Miraggio Thermal Spa, with the four indoor and outdoor clubs designed for different age groups where kids can have a lot of fun, while parents can breath a little. There is a crèche too for babies!
At the core of the resort is the thermal spa, which is fed by a subterranean hot spring. If you’re into all the wellness programmes the resort has to offer, you’ve hit the jackpot. I honestly haven’t seen a more beautiful spa, naturally lit, luxurious, with top of the art décor and treatment rooms. The facility offers thalassotherapy pools, Finish sauna, tepidarium, floating sauna and cold plunge walking path. I’ve had a face massage on one of the days, really invigorating!
Staying at Miraggio Thermal Spa in Greece would be the holiday you’ve always wanted. The luxurious facilities, the delicious food, the breathtaking views make it the place to relax during the day and as the sun goes down, to enjoy a cocktail at the terrace surrounded by live jazz. The resort is a piece of heaven and you deserve a holiday like this.
