Yachting Boating World: Scheduled to open on 27 May, the marina at the Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort in Halkidiki, Greece is ideal for those wanting luxury as they cruise.
Its design was influenced by the results of a study into wind and currents by academics at Aristotle University.
The architects not only wanted to reduce the environmental impact of the development, but also to help out yacht skippers too.
The marina is designed to allow maximum water circulation to keep the development of bacteria to a minimum. In theory, this should reduce the need to clean the yacht’s hull.
Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort’s marina can house 81 boats, up to 40 metres long.
All vessels will be offered an “individual and high quality mooring”, including launching ramp, 24-hour manning, berthing and security, state-of-the-art electricity and water service pedestals, a pump out station, Wi-Fi and a petrol and diesel gas station.
There is also a seafood restaurant, The Marine Tavern, which allow diners beach views across the bay.
For those wanting some luxury, the Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort has 300 elegant, spacious rooms. The majority of them face the Toroneos Gulf, and have stunning sea views. Private pool are available in 48 of the rooms.
The thermal spa offers a full range of treatments, combining traditional and modern techniques.
The 330-acre seafront hotel also has 10 restaurants and bars, a dedicated childcare facilities and a modern conference centre with the capacity to accommodate up to 450 people. For more information visit Miraggio Thermal Spa Resort.
