Asphodel Spa at the Azia Resort and Spa The sybaritic Asphodel Spa is a hymn to nature, intriguing to the senses yet calming to the mind. The sound of falling water, the fine incense of ouzo and anise, the breeze in the garden treatment rooms, the rich natural textures; these and a variety of treatments offering different experiences and Elemis products have been deployed in its design to awake all the senses and sooth the body and mind. This is one of the best spas in the world , a space that can keep the visitor content day after day.
The symbol of the hotel is the Asphodel, the immortal flower in the ancient Greek mythology. According to the ancient greeks, it stands for the ultimate happiness of the soul and was the first sight a soul longed to see at the gates of paradise. Asphodel still grows in abundance wild on the island.
