Some spa with your wine?20/05/2013
Extending their spa offerings for the 2013 season, Sani Resort in Greece is now offering a selection of new wine inspired treatments for spa dwellers.
Carefully prepared by bespoke beauty brand Anne Semonin, the new Oeneotherapy treatments have been inspired by the red grapes in French red wine, famed for their anti-oxidant elements. The new treatments are available at all of Sani Resort’s three spas, a little piece of Grecian paradise on the Halkidiki peninsula of the Aegean Coast.
Oenotherapy (or healing with wine) has been the secret of wine producing regions for thousands of years. No anti-oxidant is stronger than the polyphenols contained in the seeds, skin and leaves of the humble red grape! Containing 20 times more anti-oxidants than Vitamin C and 50 times more than Vitamin E, these polyphenol-compounds in the red grape prevent the rapid decay of cells, energising and detoxifying the skin, ensuring a full body pampering experience.
The new Anne Semonin Oenotherapy Collection is available at My Spa (Sani Beach Hotel), The Club Spa (Sani Beach Club) and The Spa Suite (Porto Sani Village) all located in the 1000 acre eco-enclave of Sani Resort.
The treatment menu includes:
Revitalising & Anti-Oxidant Body Exfoliation
This energising grape seed body polish leaves skin delightfully soft, smooth and nourished to perfection. By releasing the full force of polyphenols found in seeds and skin of red grape, with an anti-oxidant power 20 times stronger than Vitamin C, this is the ideal way to achieve healthy glowing skin. (25 min; £55)
La Selection du Sommelier
Anti-Ageing Body Cocooning
This pampering body rejuvenation provides optimum regeneration of the skin. An invigorating body scrub is followed by a nourishing and anti-ageing body mask while guests experience a soothing scalp massage. The natural anti-oxidant benefits of this treatment will enhance body drainage, maximise hydration, plump and smooth to perfection, while nurturing the body in a cloud of well-being. (55 min; £100)
La Cuvee Speciale
Pampering Pumices Massage Ritual
An ancient massage technique based on linen pumices, filled with all the goodness of powerful grape seeds, natural grape essences and aromatic essential oils. Through a combination of heat, pressure and the effects of the red grape and essential oils, this gentle massage induces a profound state of physical and mental relaxation, banishing tension and easing muscles. (1h15min; £125)
Le Grand Cu
The Ultimate Oenotherapy Experience
This ultimate ritual starts with a soothing footbath with grape seeds and essential oils, enjoyed with a glass of refreshing vitamin packed grape juice in hand. The treatment continues with a deep revitalising body exfoliation and nurturing anti-ageing body wrap, concluding with a relaxing and soothing pumice massage. As a final touch, gusts will choose between a glass of fresh grape juice, or wine, to end the Oenotherapy wine experience. (2h25; £235) *Not available at Sani Beach Hotel’s spa.
Sani Resort’s Spa Director Spiros Gaitanidis commented: “We are thrilled to be the first Spas in Greece to introduce the new Anne Semonin Oenotherapy Rituals Collection. Nature has always generously provided us with the best anti-oxidant protection and our new treatments are designed to make these benefits available to everyone, by combining the highest concentration of anti-oxidant elements with the luxurious pampering our bodies need”.
