Travel Bloggers Greece (TBG), the first professional blogger network in Greece, recently marked its fourth year of promoting the country as a year-round destination.
Launched in 2015, TBG’s goal is to reveal and share Greece’s most authentic and high quality experiences. The group always travels as a team to various Greek destinations and each member/blog offers a unique coverage. Some of the blogs promote family destinations, others luxury travel. Wellness destinations, experiences of nature, and culture and cuisine are all among the group’s diverse interests, shared with diverse audiences worldwide.
“Being in a quiet corner of Greece, we experienced genuine Greek hospitality and the highest level of service at a historic, five star spa hotel,” said Elena Sergeeva of the blog Passion for Hospitality, and co-founder of Travel Bloggers Greece.
Underlining that Greece offers much more than just sun and sea, Sergeeva points out that the country has some of the very best therapeutic thermal springs in the world.
“That’s the amazing thing about this country. There are these world-class experiences that not everyone knows about. That is our goal – to share these experiences, to promote the authentic Greece that we have the privilege of exploring,” she said.
During their stay at the Thermae Sylla Spa and Wellness Hotel, TBG members experienced the comprehensive menu of therapeutic and beauty treatments including mud baths, aromatherapy jet baths, Rasul, and facial massage.
Thermae Sylla: A spa with a hotel
A historic and local landmark, located just two hours from Athens in Edipsos, on Evia Island, the Thermae Sylla Spa and Wellness Hotel dates back to 1896. The area’s spa culture dates back much further – to ancient Greece. The Spa is named for the Roman General Sylla, who was cured there. Today, Thermae Sylla combines the latest technologies and medical expertise with the unique benefits of its therapeutic thermal water.
“After Thermae Sylla first opened its doors at the end of the 19th century, it quickly became a premier spa destination for people from all over Europe,” said Voula Karatziou-Anastasopoulou, Public Relations Executive at the hotel.
“We are dedicated to preserving this heritage, and the elegance of the original building, while making this a state of the art contemporary experience. Our spa is the heart of everything we do: Thermae Sylla is first and foremost a spa – a spa with a hotel, and not the other way around,” she underlined.
“The location, this beautiful quiet corner of Evia, reaffirms that Greece is endless in its charms, and rewards those who seek out the rare and unexpected,” TBG’s co-founder Elena Sergeeva said.
TBG current members include: Anthomeli, Family Experiences Blog, Family Goes Out in Greece, Passion for Greece/Passion for Hospitality, Provocolate, Tzina Varotsi and Travelpassionate. The network’s international members include Travel With Mansoureh (UK) and Todd Hata (USA).
