Our company has been a pioneer in the construction industry for the last twenty years. With the conviction that tourism is our heavy industry, we decided to enter the tourism industry with the construction of a luxury hotel unit in the city of Drama. Although the investment coincided with the deep economic crisis experienced by our country, our company managed to complete the construction of a luxury hotel within 3 years, which was considered by many perhaps the best luxury hotel built and operated during this period, nationwide. The upgraded services offered by our hotel, Hydrama Grand Hotel, are reflected in our customers’ positive feedback who rank us first - with excellent infrastructure and services.
With the hotel experience, we have gained and always with a view to pioneering, we decided to make the first Retirement & SPA village in Greece, and more specifically in Heraklion, Crete. With ideal climatic conditions 12 months a year.
During the last 20 years, there have been many references to medical tourism and the necessity of its development by institutions and individuals. Retirement villages have been developed throughout the European region. In Greece, this form of tourism is still undeveloped. Cretan tourism can operate 12 months a year as the climatic conditions are even better than in Spain, thus Crete is an ideal location for developing a full-year tourism industry, especially for the elderly or for those that wish to combine medical care with relaxation.
Eternal Olive Retirement & Wellness Village is located at a great location for many reasons. Crete has a Mediterranean climate, ideal for living. The project is next to University Hospital PEPAGNI (0.17km), the biggest and most equipped hospital in Crete. The project is very close to Heraklion city centre (6.3km) for shopping and sightseeing. The famous Knossos Palace is only 6.9km away and the north Cretan beaches are just 6 to 12km away. Getting to the Airport (8.6km) and Port (7.2km) is also quick and easy, just about 10 minutes away by transport.
Our vision is to develop a project that will cover all of the above mentioned and be considered as a shortcoming for the Greek Tourism industry. After the completion of the Hydrama Grand Hotel, we planned the construction and operation of the First Retirement village in Greece. The hotel will provide all the services of a 4-star hotel with an organized Wellness centre occupying 2,200sqm and medical care of all specialities giving people the opportunity of WELL AGING, a brand new term that comes from a Greek expression that means living: Better- Longer- Healthier and Happier with an exceptional quality of life, making Eternal Olive the golden standard for the seniors. The WellAging concept:
Mediterranean climate, Living at Eternal Olive in Green oriented buildings and facilities, Well trained staff to clients in a 1 to 1 ratio.
Mediterranean way of bio eating, drinking living, breathing, 24/7 fully clean in house air quality via state of the art photocatalytic filters in all residents, rooms or facilities that neutralize every harmful chemical compound, multi-resistant even pan-resistant to drugs bacteria or viruses.
We have the know-how to reverse the biological clock of the human body with several natural ways like Deep detoxification procedures, hyperthermia, Oxygen therapies, unique baths with nanobubbles technology, colon hydrotherapy any many more treatments.
Self-expression through engagement in meaningful activities (leisure, art, hobbies etc.) and socializing at a daily routine with each other as well as with kids from “The Smile of The child” promote a sense of deep satisfaction and fulfillment. Botanical Plantation Garden, an in-house project where every client can plant a unique Cretan medical herb of his choice or olive tree, endless travel points to visit (vineyards, olive plants, archaeological sites etc.) also add to the quality of life.
