Our unique APIVITA Spa approach

APIVITA’s well designated treatments and massage techniques are ideally combined with the natural, holistic and effective APIVITA products in order to rejuvenate and stimulate the senses.

The name comes from the latin words apis (bee) and vita (life), meaning “the life of the bee”, which sums up the philosophy of the brand and the products, including the identity of Avra Imperial spa. APIVITA was the first company to use and promote aromatherapy in Greece; the core ingredients used are carefully processed premium extracts, originally collected from organically grown plants native to Greek flora and beehive products of high nutritional value.

Adopting Hippocrates's holistic philosophy, APIVITA promotes a balanced and harmonious way of life, producing uniquely designed beauty products based on the rich biodiversity of the Greek flora and the mild Mediterranean climate, responsible for the highly beneficial properties of the brand’s star ingredients. Always committed to the company’s core values, APIVITA’s Research and Development Department, consisting of renowned scientists, always strives for innovation through advanced research and scientific studies.

Complemented by the holistic philosophy of APIVITA, the hotel’s wide range of modern spa facilities provides an unparalleled experience that will soothe all your senses during your summer holiday escape in Chania; the unspoiled nature of Kolymvari, the fine bay and gorgeous beach with the imposing view of the mountain on the background, form the setting of a natural refuge, one of the few ones located in West Crete.
