Euphoria Retreat, a holistic wellbeing destination spa opening in the Greek Peloponnese this June, has announced its appointment of two highly recognised Italian experts within the Spa industry: Patrizia Bortolin & Stefano Battaglia.
The new destination spa will offer a unique blend of treatments and experiences to enable health and personal transformation, using Ancient Hellenic and Chinese philosophies and medicines.
The passionate owner of Euphoria Retreat, Marina Efraimolgou, was looking for unique partnerships to guide and support her on the project. Her strong chemistry with Patrizia Bortolin, helped to bring the vision into reality, as they both share a holistic approach in the process of personal transformation.
Patrizia is Euphoria Retreat’s new SPA Director and will be responsible for the planning, design, establishment and enhancement of Euphoria Retreat’s SPA Programmes, Retreats and Treatments, overseeing all SPA operations and aiming to provide excellent customer service to all guests under the highest standards.
Patrizia is a multi award-winning Spa Director and concept designer, blending holistic healing knowledge with professional excellence and extraordinary organisational skills with a deep spiritual touch. She is a mindfulness trainer and image consultant, specialising in project management for Spa openings. She spent her life in tourism and has a rich curriculum as a luxury Spa director. She created, launched and managed for seven years the internationally celebrated Spa of Borgo Egnazia; managed a leading medical Spa in Tuscany and on Lake Garda and she created and designed the original Spa in Switzerland. She is highly trained in international spa management and holistic disciplines, is a people person and personally engaged in her healing adventure.
Euphoria Retreat also welcomes Stefano Battaglia, a master of holistic transformation who will give his successful and award winning life-changing sessions the Greek touch. Specialising in recovery from trauma and emotional shock, Stefano is also a mindfulness meditation teacher. He will be part of the high quality team of healers at Euphoria Retreat and, as an inspiring trainer, will empower the wider team of therapists.
Founder Marina Efraimoglou said of the new appointments: “At Euphoria Retreat we have found two people whose thoughts about emotional, healing and spiritual transformation are in line with ours. It took only a few minutes to understand that we both share the same values, ethos and passion. Patrizia and Stefano shape a team of experts that will help us offer high end spa services at an international level. We are confident about their positive contribution and we are happy and excited to welcome both of them to Euphoria Retreat.”
Patrizia Bortolin adds: “When I first listened to Marina talking about ancient Greek healing and prevention processes, I immediately felt a call to join this unique project. I love the emotional focus, the element of individual freedom in the approach to health, and moreover the joyful signature of the project and the place. The design is full of personality and feminine creativity and the team Marina has gathered is full of potential. We’ll create a fusion of our humanity, skills, expertise and inspiration to make the Euphoria lifestyle unforgettable”.
