Holidays mean different things to different people – while holidays symbolise a time of total relaxation to some, to others they need to include some action. Over the last few years we have seen a big increase in the interest for exercise-oriented holidays and we at Aris Hotel are determined to do our best to accommodate all your different needs and requests.
Yoga on our roof-terrace
Paleochora attracts hikers who love wandering the Cretan mountains, as well as yoga-enthusiasts who are eager to roll out their mats in our embracing climate and stunning views. There is a perfect space for yoga and yoga-related activities on the roof-terrace of Aris Hotel and we welcome single guests as well as groups to take advantage of this space for their yoga-sessions. We can also help you get in touch with local yoga teachers for yoga classes during your stay with us.
During the winter of 2015-2016 we underwent a complete renovation of the hotel’s basement and included a wonderful, tropical-inspired little massage studio, so if your body is tired after long days of hiking in the Cretan mountains, or if you just want to maximize your relaxing holiday experience in Paleochora, we welcome you to take advantage of this cosy space and book your massage appointment through our staff. The massage room has been hand painted by a local artist and decorated with the same passion as all the rest of the hotel; it has turned out to be a wonderful little addition to the Aris Hotel concept and we are really looking forward to our guests making good use of it.
Open air massage
During the hot summer months we will also offer the possibility for you to enjoy your massage and healing therapies in a secluded and quiet area of our lush garden, or up on the roof terrace, depending on the winds. Nothing is more relaxing and revitalising at the same time than receiving a massage under the open sky, especially during the morning hours when Paleochora is just waking up.
We collaborate with a couple of well-established, local massage therapists and can therefore offer a range of different therapies such as reiki, deep tissue massage, Swedish massage and reflexology – all to suit your specific needs.
