Boutique Greek island retreat unveils new spa with waterfall treatment rooms

Calilo, a luxury boutique resort on the picturesque Greek island of Ios, has refreshed its offering with a new spa and fitness centre.

The four-year-old family-owned hotel – with a philosophy based on sustainability, art and intentional design – has been updated with this dedicated wellness space so guests can reconnect and recharge.

The three-level facility features a gym occupying the first two floors including personal saunas, one indoor and two outdoor pools looking over Papas Beach and expansive space for fitness classes and meditation.

The third floor is home to Calilo’s new spa which is characterised by playful interiors and design details that focus on wellbeing and positivity.

Inspired by the naturally calming energy of water, the spa includes six new treatment rooms that feature mini waterfalls and suspend treatment beds above a pool of water to ensure a calming and cathartic experience for guests. The ceilings are also partially perforated to let natural light gently illuminate the space.

The treatments provided spotlight traditional Greek products, including honey from the property’s own beehives and olive oil sourced from olive trees.

Spa partners include Natura Bissé, Alqvimia and Le Pure.

Opened in 2019, Calilo features more than 30 rooms, multiple dining outlets, private beach cabanas and event spaces, and also hosts experiences like private boat excursions, culture trips, wine tastings and dinner under the stars.

The property is part of the LuxurIOS brand owned by Angelos Michalopoulos and Vassiliki Petridou. When developing the hotel, the Michalopoulos family opted to leave 99 per cent of the land undeveloped, in order to sustain Ios’ natural beauty.

The land that has been developed for Calilo however has been done so in an environmentally-friendly manner with construction material extracted from the ground of the actual building site, including marble and stone granite.

Calilo also has several conservation projects including the Elektra olive tree project, where the team has planted over 60,000 trees and bushes from around the island to restore the habitat that had previously been burned by wildfire and land deforestation, including 550 ancient olive trees.

In addition to the new wellness facilities, the hotel has relaunched for the summer season with three new suites and unveiled additional initiatives to support its ongoing corporate social responsibility and sustainability programmes, including a zero plastic initiative.

In 2024, the family will also launch an education programme and private university on the island of Ios, called Calilo School of Hospitality and Tourism.

"The continued enhancements at Calilo reflect my personal vision as an artist and my commitment as a hotelier to deliver an aesthetically unique product that respects the breathtaking traditional ways of Cycladic architecture while accommodating the needs of the modern traveller," said Angelos Michalopoulos.
