Six Senses Spa opens on Christina O yacht

18th Oct 2006

Throughout the history of luxury motor yachting, there have been few super yachts that have become legends. Perhaps the Christina, yacht of Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, would be the one which is most distinctly steeped in stories of the rich and famous who have graced her decks and staterooms.Following a two-and-a-half-year restoration and refurbishment, the slightly re-named Christina O, now boasting twenty-first century refinements and luxuries, is available to those who want the ultimate seagoing experience.

Six Senses Spas mission is to deliver experiences that are both unique and memorable, so it was a perfect choice to select Six Senses to operate the spa aboard the Christina O.

Offering personal and individual sensory journeys, and utilizing the latest in Asian and European wellness therapies, the Six Senses Spa aboard the Christina O is a haven of wellbeing and tranquility. It reflects the ability of Six Senses Spas to adapt seamlessly to host cultures, including those of Christina O’s Mediterranean odysseys - such as journeys through the Greek Islands, Italy, Turkey and the Southern coast of France.

Whether it be in a double or single treatment room, on deck or in the Onassis Suite, every treatment is a distinct and unique experience. Internationally trained Six Senses Spa therapists take guests on a journey within themselves, through many forms of holistic healing and sense of wellbeing; from options of body and beauty care to reflexology and hot stone therapy. Six Senses - Sodashi products are used onboard and are made only from natural ingredients, in harmony with the environment.



As her legendary past blends into the dawning of a new era, Christina O offers a first time opportunity to experience the extraordinary lifestyle of the Onassis years. Guests on board the Christina included some of the world’s most famous, powerful and influential people. Luminaries and legends such as the Aga Khan, Greta Garbo, John Wayne, Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Eva Peron, John Paul Getty, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, all left behind a touch of their fame and added a mythical dimension to the yacht’s celebrity. John F. Kennedy was first introduced to Sir Winston Churchill on board this yacht.
