You’re never too young to learn about the importance of wellness, and the Six Senses Spa team in Crete have devised an interactive program in which children from 5 to 12 years can have fun while learning when staying at Porto Elounda Golf & Spa Resort and the Elounda Peninsula All Suite Hotel in Greece.
The program includes wellness, educational and nutritional workshops and group spa treatments. They are introduced to specialist classes, games, and treatments as well as workshops about healthier living to educate them on how to integrate wellness into everyday life.
Spread over three days, lasting three hours per day so as to maintain maximum interest, the program takes place at the amazing indoor and outdoor Kids Ark created especially to support the goal of introducing youngsters to the ideal of wellness and a healthy lifestyle.
The indoor facility covers 7,500 square feet (700 square meters) and comprised of classrooms, activity rooms and a wellness treatment area plus a kitchen and changing rooms. The outdoor area of 43,000 square feet (4,000 square meters) features an eco gym, labyrinth garden and meditation cave, Hippocrates garden, pool and playground.
Among the fun inclusions, young attendees will learn how to do a foot scrub, paint nails and make organic beauty products. A nutritional workshop is combined with brunch and fascinating subjects such as bees and bee products, and sun and fun are included in the workshop together with a session in the eco gym and traditional games of the world.
Play happily in harmony with nature at Six Senses Spa Porto Elounda, Kids Wellness Program
Hands-on lessons are offered about herbs and plants in the Hippocrates garden. The garden was named in honor of the ancient philosopher who’s wisdom on health, beauty and well-being included enduring insights such as ‘prevention is better than cure’, ‘ let food be your medicine’ and ‘everything in excess is opposed to nature’. This philosophy is also the inspiration for program partner APIVITA who provide the treatment products.
Courses run every day except Sunday and are priced per day at EUR 40 per child or the complete three days for EUR 100. Reservations can be made directly with Six Senses Spa by phone at +30 284 106 8060 at ext. 6100, the Kids Ark at ext. 6850 or email at [email protected].
