Spa See More
Aegeo Spas C.M.S. is the biggest Greek company that operates wellness centers (SPAS) ONLY in hotels. Aegeo Spas’ “journey” began back in 2007. After eight years, it counts 60 wellness centers all over Greece and wishes to offer the opportunity to all its collaborators to become communicants to the unique “Journey” it has to offer to the guest.
The company’s brochures are based on this philosophy…”Journey in the Aegean Sea”.
Below we mention briefly what these brochures are and how they are used.
Spa Ticket: It is given by the hotel reception staff to all adult guests of the hotel, upon their arrival and offers them a 15min FREE massage of their preference. The guests HAVE TO book their appointment at the Spa Reception within the first 48hours of their arrival.
Destination Card: It is a duplicate that is filled in by the therapist, the salesman or the manager, with their suggestions to the guests for more personal and tailor-made services.
Boarding Pass: It is a medical questionnaire along with some details regarding the guest. That way we are in position to know if the service or the service suggestion he is about to receive is suitable for him.
Questionnaire: It is the guests’ questionnaire which constantly improves us, in all parts they think we need to be improved. Furthermore, it is the tool that informs us for any guest’s discontent, helping us act immediately and drastically at the root of the problem.
All of these brochures are the instruments of the Journey we have decided to do with our collaborators and guests. But what is our most direct means is the Spa Menu. Creation of team work, our menu is structured in a way that is clear, guiding and has a scent of the Aegean Sea.
Spa Menu: It is divided in five sections, just like a journey
Journey preparation-luggage: We are preparing for our Journey, which means that in this section we have all the flash treatments that prepare someone to accept their treatment in the right way.
Journey: Mini treatments that can be added up to any treatment, but can also stand on their own for those who do not have much time to spend at the Spa.
Main Destinations-Accommodation: These are the complete face, body and massage treatments which are the main means of the journey to relaxation and wellness.
Sightseeing: It includes all the Holistic treatments that have our signature and are a destination on their own.
Home Sweet Home- Departure: Express treatments that will leave you a sweet taste from the journey and will prepare you for a departure full of unforgettable memories.
All of our treatments, apart from a clear name that defines their properties, will also be named after islands of the Aegean Sea, making in that way the Aegean Sea familiar to its majority, offering a mental journey to the destinations they will choose to visit.
We will make sure that the guest will take this journey with him as a souvenir, by giving him from the Spa reception -at the end of his treatments- a map of the Aegean Sea (it will resemble to a postcard) that will show the journey he made to our islands, through the Spa treatments he performed.
With all these means Aegeo Spas will make all of its guests participants to a Mystical Journey of Senses and Wellness, having as background the unique Energy of the Greek Aegean Sea.
Fasten your seatbelts…
Aegeo Spas’ journey to delight begins…

Hand crafted hosted holidays, improve your game and meet new people
Great two day clinic at Taunton Tennis Centre - Coaching is five star and Charlie Sean George and Sam all spot on. Would certainly do again and looking forward to week in the sun and reinforcing the ideas passed on this last two days.
Please come down to the West Country more often!!
Thanks from a very happy client.read more
I have attended 3 Active Away one-day clinics now and have loved every minute of it. The coaches are brilliant. They have a wealth of experience and are oozing enthusiasm. My net play has noticeably improved, as has my doubles game. My doubles partner also attends the clinics with me and we've now started winning consistently against players that previously walked all over us. The great thing is that each clinic has something new to offer so it's not a case of doing the same drills every time. I am yet to try one of the holidays but if they're anything like the one day clinics then I'm sure I won't be disappointed.read more
Had a very enjoyable and informative day at the Active Away tennis clinic. I'm looking forward to using the new skills at my club. The Active Away guys were very good and explained clearly tactics to improve doubles play. Nice facility too, inside courts and a nice friendly bunch of participants. Thanks to everyone involved.read more
Fantastic weekend away with Active Away. Very well-structured clinic led by professional, positive and really friendly coaches. Learnt lots - just need to put it all into practice now. Looking forward to the next one and thoroughly recommend.read more
I had an awesome day at the Active Away tennis camp at Nottingham David Lloyd! The day went very quickly as we had so much fun! There were no more than 6 people to a coach and we had great tuition! I just need to put things into my game now! 🤣🎾🙋♀️read more
Another great tennis holiday with the guys who go the extra mile in improving my game.
I'm addicted and can't recommended them highly enough.
Great coaching , good locations, loads of fun, positive attitudes.
I've just booked my 5th holiday!
May apply for a job😂😂
see you in 2020
This was a fantastic clinic. Not only are all of the coaches welcoming, encouraging and fun but extremely professional and gave great technically appropriate advice. The doubles tactics were invaluable. The standard of the other participants was similar but well managed nonetheless. I can recommend Active Away to anyone wanting to hone their doubles’ performance. We also got some 1-2-1 feedback on our serves which is always necessary. I will book again.read more
Fantastic holiday, superb coaching and a wonderful venue in Crete in between the mountains and the sea. The hotel was lovely and food was great. Just returned home and my matches this week have been so much better, especially my positioning and shots at the net. Thanks coaches 👍read more
This was my first trip with Active Away. The venue was very nice (Sani Beach) the coaching was excellent we had a good number of hours spent learning new methods and techniques that I feel confident will improve my game and more importantly every moment was really good fun. The coaches didn’t stop making it fun for all even after or in-between the tennis. They made sure everyone knew where they would be eating and drinking what entertainment was where and you could join them or do your own thing they were always there to help. Excellent holiday that I would highly recommend.read more
We have just got back from a fantastic week away with Active Away.
Active it is! With 2 hours of fun filled coaching in the morning with coaches of the highest standards - Then break for lunch and time to relax around the pool.
We then had a 30 minute Master Class on various aspects of the game to help make you a better doubles player - with another 2 hours of social tennis where the coaches are on hand too help and guide you on what you can do better.
The coaches don't stop there - the evening meal is booked, the entertainment is sorted. Which is a perfect way to get know the coaches and make lasting friendships within the group.
I promise your first booking will not be your last!

Superb holiday - hotel was amazing, food was unbelievable and so much choice. Tennis coaching was brilliant and I learnt so much in a week and I would recommend a couple of 121 lessons as well. Well looked after and nothing was too much trouble. Full on day and night so not for anyone wanting a relaxing holiday. Definitely doing another week.read more

Matt Allen and the team should be very proud of what they have created.

I loved every minute!read more

As a tennis improver I learnt so much during my week's tennis holiday with Active Away in Turkey. Great coaching by experts at a reasonable and appropriate pace enabled me to progress the development of my skills.
We were greeted a the airport by the coaches and they were always on hand to assist in any matter. Matt and the team were splendid hosts and it was good to see George and Toby from David Lloyd, Exeter, so I will be able to enhance my skills further now we have returned home.
There were a number of singles there and the charming coaches ensured a most inclusive environment hosting all our social activities in the evenings to ensure that no on each was left out.
This was our second Active Away tennis holiday and we have already booked for Crete, next October. We can't wait.read more

Already reserved two places for next year .read more
Excellent tennis holidays with top quality coaching in fabulous locations. AA have a truly unique formula when it comes to looking after their clients. Can't recommend them highly enough, after one holiday you're hooked!!
Since this last post we've been on several more AA holidays to even more wonderful locations and far from being "samey" they are absolutely addictive. We are constantly learning from the top notch coaches and taking home little nuggets of information which improve our game. Whilst we can still run around these tennis holidays tick all the boxes 👌😎read more
The Active Away team do an outstanding job when it comes to tennis holidays. The 4 that I have been on have always been at super nice hotels with great facilities lead by high level enthusiastic coaches. The course is well structured with different aspects of the doubles game focussed on at each session. Most importantly I have always found it made a material improvement to my game when I got back home. On top of that my wife and I have always had a blast as the coaches organise very sociable evenings!read more
I have now been on 3 Activeaway tennis holidays & found them to be excellent. The resorts are wonderful but the thing that stands out for me is the coaching team. They are exceptional in every way. Very entertaining but in a professional way. I cannot fault them & will hopefully be back for more in 2020read more
Just returned from another fantastic Active Away tennis holiday in Costa Navarino, Greece. This was easily my best Active Away holiday so far. The venue was superb, as was the tennis coaching, led by Steve and Dan. A really brilliant experience all round. I can’t recommend the quality of the coaching highly enough - along with the hotel, its location and facilities.read more
The detailed planning and hospitality of the organisers blended with the enthusiasm and friendliness of the group produced a winning combination.The coaching was excellent on court and the hosting was exemplary throughtout the holiday. Matt and Nick went above and beyond all expectations to ensure everyone had a magnificent holiday to remember. I am already looking forward to booking my next holiday with Active Away. Well done, keep up the great work!read more
Excellent week in Croatia with Matt and Nick. Just the best tennis holiday you could choose.. Everyone improved their game, with coaching tips that will make big changes to anyone's game at every level. The social side was great with everyone enjoying the off court time getting to know each other and making new friends.
I'll be choosing Active Away again in 2020.
Just returned from a great week in Greece with Active Away. The tennis coaching was great, and the hosting superb. This is my fifth holiday with Active Away in two years. Thanks for such a good time & see you all soon I hope.read more
Really excellent tennis coaching at a beautiful resort. Josh, Steve, Matt, Sean and Dan put us through our paces and ensured that everyone on the course at whatever level took away something to improve their game. Very sociable and friendly group. Hotel clean and staff attentive and friendly, only drawback was cuisine which was rather lacking in imagination.read more
Another wonderful holiday with Active Away, this time in Croatia. The tennis was fantastic, & the coaching was second to none! All the coaches gave their all, both on & off the court, making sure we all had the best possible time. The location was stunning... the tennis was great & the company was the best! Thanks Active Away... here’s to the next time! 🎾🌟🎾🌟🎾read more
Active Away really do run the best tennis holidays.
I’ve been joining them, in different resorts and locations for 10 years now and they just get better and better.
The quality of coaching is superb and each coach works hard to ensure everyone there gets what they want from the holiday both on and off court.
The holidays are very sociable, so going solo doesn’t feel too intimidating as you are always included .
I’m looking forward to choosing my next holiday with them.read more
Another fabulous holiday with Active Away in Crete. A great tennis program with excellent coaches, who go out of their way both on and off the court to make your holiday special.

I would recommend to everyone, memories last a lifetime.read more
What an amazing holiday!
A small group of players from our tennis club went along to Lyttos Beach for our first Active Away holiday, not quite knowing what to expect, but we were made to feel so welcome and involved. The coaching team were a perfect mix of professional and sociable. What a friendly, approachable bunch of guys! You could really tell that it meant a lot to them that you enjoyed yourself, they seemed to bring the best out in all the holiday goers, which created a real feel-good mood for the entire week and I came away from it feeling like I had taken so much from it as a tennis player too.
Our host, Josh, was fantastic; clearly a VERY good tennis player and coach, but so humble and down to Earth with it too. He was great at talking to large groups and made it feel like you were never under pressure to do anything on the itinerary, but it was so well put together and so much fun that you'd always want to and it felt like he would be happy to go out of his way to make your holiday that extra bit better for you if he could.
The resort itself was really lovely. Beautiful setting, loads of courts of different surfaces. The food was really great (especially for an all inclusive set-up) and the drinks were plentiful!
I thought it was great value for money, given the quality of the coaching and facilities and for how enjoyable the whole experience was. My only hope is that our next one will be this good, because it's certainly going to be hard to top!read more
I have just returned from my very first tennis holiday and had an absolutely brilliant time. I was somewhat apprehensive beforehand as I didn’t know what to expect, but I needn’t have worried. Josh and his team of coaches were so patient and enthusiastic and such experts in coaching every aspect of tennis. I would highly recommend and encourage anyone who is thinking about venturing on an Active Away tennis holiday to go for it. It’s such an all round fun and exhilarating holiday!read more
We just came back from a week tennis holiday in Greece with Active Away. We had a fantastic time. Great coaching, great tennis, great hospitality and the most passionate and friendly team you can ever hope for. The tennis coaching is extremely high quality but the experience is a lot more than just tennis. Matt, Josh and the rest of the team will make sure you get the best of everything from the moment you land to the moment you take-off. We will join them again for sure. Big thanks from all our family.read more
If you're after a Tennis Holiday, there's no better than Active Away. Their fully hosted set up means that you're part of a group from the outset, so whether you're on your own or with your partner or friends, it really adds to the experience. I've visited three of their resorts and all of them are fabulous in their own way. The main difference with Active Away is that the coaching is meaningful. The coaches really care about improving your game and aren't just there to doss; Whatever your level, you'll come away a better player and have a great time to boot.read more
