Family-owned Abaton Island Resort opens with Elemis spa in Crete
POSTED 13 Oct 2017 . BY Tom Walker
Hersonissos Group Hotels (HGH) has opened its latest property on the Greek island of Crete.

Owned and managed by the Kaloutsakis family, the Abaton Island Resort and Spa is the seventh hotel in HGH’s portfolio. The company opened its first hotel in Hersonissos in 1980 and has since grown into one of Crete’s leading independently-owned resort groups.

Designed to reflect the styles and influences of its surroundings, the new resort will target the high-end tourist market and offers accommodation in three distinct categories – luxury guestrooms, suites and villas. All accommodation options offer either an outdoor terrace, a private pool or an outdoor spa bath.

The resort’s 725sq m (7,800sq ft) luxury spa houses five treatment rooms and will be open to day guests as well as guests of the resort.

Designed by Konstantinos Kaloutsakis, facilities include a heated indoor swimming pool, hammam, Finnish sauna, spa pool, a health club equipped with Technogym kit, a nail salon and a medical clinic.

HGH will operate the spa in-house and has signed a partnership deal with product house Elemis to provide the spa’s treatments.

“'Some business collaborations are meant to happen – and this one with Elemis is one of those,” said Elina Kaloutsaki, director of HGH.

Ioannis Charalambous, director of development for Elemis’ Greek distributor Relia, added: “As well as traditional massages and facials, we will offer Biotec treatments which have been designed to replenish depleted skin cells.”
