GOCO Spa, Retreat to open on Crete

We couldn’t be happier to be working with the marvellous Daios Cove team in creating what will Greece’s premier wellness hospitality destination
– Ingo Schweder
GOCO Hospitality is opening a GOCO Spa at the Daios Cove Luxury Resort on the Greek island of Crete in April this year, and will also develop a separate 50-key GOCO Retreat on the property in late 2018.

“GOCO Spa Daios Cove and, ultimately, GOCO Retreat Daios Cove will bring a modern and sophisticated wellness experience to the Greek tourism offering,” said Ingo Schweder, GOCO Hospitality CEO. “The Daios Cove Luxury Resort & Villas is such a fantastic resort. It’s a truly rare gem perched neatly on the beautiful Aegean coast of Crete – the perfect spot for just getting away from it all and focusing on health and complete relaxation. We couldn’t be happier to be working with the marvellous Daios Cove team in creating what will Greece’s premier wellness hospitality destination.”

The Resort includes 305 bedrooms and 114 private pools, and the 2,500sq m (26,909sq ft) GOCO Spa Daios Cove will open with a mission to provide the resort’s guests with experiences that deliver a combination of relaxation, advanced beauty treatments and tailor-made fitness programmes.

A resident Indian yoga master will provide a regular programme of yoga and meditation classes, and massage therapists from Thailand will deliver classic Thai massage treatments.

The spa features eight treatments rooms – including two private suites and a dedicated Thai massage room – a cutting-edge gym and movement studio; two indoor pools; and a thermal spa suite with Finnish sauna, soft sauna, Mediterraneo (combined sauna with steam bath) and Nimfea reaction showers. Beach cabanas will bring specially selected spa treatments to the water’s edge.

Spa treatments include the signature two-hour Cretan Renaissance Ceremony, which applies indigenous herbs, including rosemary, lavender and oregano. A local salt exfoliation is followed by a red wine wrap and a massage using linen pouches filled with dry herbs that creates an aromatic cloud, designed to induce complete relaxation of the mind.

Additionally, the spa will provide advanced skin treatments for the face, neck, décolletage and body using non-surgically invasive treatments, including the Dramatic Healing Facial, which aims to restore, revitalise and repair with a clinical-grade healing serum originally developed for accelerated post-surgical recovery.

Over the coming 12 months, GOCO Hospitality will develop the 50-key GOCO Retreat Daios Cove, which is being designed by GOCO’s own architectural team, headed by group director of design Josephine Leung.

The Retreat will act as a wellness resort within a resort, and will introduce health diagnostics, personal consultations, wellness programming, a nutrition-focused restaurant menu and a regular series of health and lifestyle workshops led by industry experts.

Other wellness activities available at Daios Cove include paddle-boarding, canoeing, tennis, yoga, water skiing and scuba diving.

This will mark GOCO’s first European Retreat; plans are also underway for a GOCO Retreat outside Washington, DC, one in California, one in Bali and one in Thailand.

GOCO will also develop a separate 50-key GOCO Retreat on the property later this year
