A recent Public Health England briefing showed a direct correlation between screen time and lower levels of self-worth, self-esteem and self-reported happiness with higher levels of emotional distress and anxiety. And with more than 70% of children not undertaking the recommended one hour of activity each day – Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort in Halkidiki has created the ideal environment for families looking to improve the wellness and health for each of its members. Whether it’s on or off shore, getting lost on mountain bikes, Nordic walking, aqua spinning, diving, a football lesson or learning the art of Mediterranean cooking, Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort proves that there are experiences far superior to a touch screen.
Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort invites families to grab a helmet and choose from their impressive selection of state of the art mountain bikes, both standard and electric, and get ready to embark on what is guaranteed to be one of the most picturesque and fun family cycle rides imaginable. Miraggio’s fully-qualified on-site Greek mountain guide is there to help you seek out the secret beach spots where guests can take a dip in the tempting turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea and indulge in a Mediterranean picnic specially prepared by the hotel to enjoy on the sand. Beginner, intermediate and elite cycling routes are available, and for those happier on their feet, Nordic walking poles can be hired for scenic hikes through blooming hillsides offering sweeping views of the Grecian coast.
Families can ‘Ommm’ together on Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort’s newly built beach-front pavilion which offers the idyllic setting for chilled group yoga practice after a dusty day on the hill-side or if energy levels are still high, Pilates and aqua spinning are also available.
Now for a family feast. The Resort’s Oasis Pool Restaurant hosts daily Mediterranean inspired cooking classes with the hotel’s top chef. Guests can learn to master the basic skills of Grecian cooking then reap the rewards of their new culinary skills whilst watching the sunset on the sea. Encouraging children to learn and develop new skills whilst stimulating their senses and relaxing their minds is at the heart of this offering.
Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort is home to an outstanding Kids Planet that caters from 4 months to 17 years where the action continues. There is a football academy, archery and water sports available on the hotel’s private beach. The hotel boasts its own marina, where yachts can be hired for a day out on the open water. A knowledgeable skipper will take you to some of the most beautiful spots for diving off the boat for a swim and to visit the stunning surrounding beaches of Halkidiki.
Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort holds the remarkable distinction of being the world’s first and largest Thermae Resort located directly on the seaside and after an action-packed day, guests are invited to reside here in the healing and relaxing thalassotherapy waters.
