World Spa Awards 2023, Amanzoe

The annual World Spa Awards, which recognise excellence in spa and wellness tourism, have been awarded for the ninth year. According to the organisers, they aim for the awards to showcase excellent standards and connect consumers with the world's best spa and wellness tourism providers.

At the same time, as a global brand, the awards offer an international status of excellence and raise awareness of the spa and wellness industry.

It is noted that, among others, the body awards global awards in areas such as cruises, gastronomy, golf, ski travel, travel technology and casinos.

In the Best Spa Hotel 2023 category, the award in our country went to The Spa at Amanzoe.

As the hotel points out, the holistic treatments of Hippocrates inspire the light-filled Spa of 2,850 sq.m. of Amanzoe, which combines nutrition, fitness, exercise, massage and swimming in the sea with modern natural products and treatments.


The awards also notes that only natural products are used in the spa, while a movement philosophy is followed, which treats the person as a coherent, integrated whole.

At the same time, in the Best Resort Spa 2023 category, the prize in Greece was won by Anassa Spa at Santo Pure Oia Suites & Villas. As its founders call it, the peaceful retreat beckons travellers seeking balance and reconnection.
