We hear the One&Only group of hotels is finally gracing us with their presence in Greece and we’re excited! Not only is the luxury hospitality brand debuting in Greece with this property, it is also the brand’s second establishment in Europe. Spanning an impressive 65 hectare beachfront site, the lavish resort will entail 75 resort villas in addition to One&Only Private Homes. The resort has found home on the west side of Kea Island of the Cyclades. The much-anticipated lifestyle experience is in collaboration between Kerzner International Holdings Limited, Dolphin Capital Partners and Dolphin Capital Investors.
“One&Only resorts are the ultimate ultra-luxury experience that celebrates their destination, and Greece will be no exception. Kea is such an incredible island and our partners, Dolphin Capital Partners are leaders in development of luxury mixed-use resorts,” commented Philippe Zuber, President and Chief Operating Officer, One&Only Resorts.
“Our goal is to introduce the finest resort in the Mediterranean and I am confident that One&OnlyKéa Island will deliver on the One&Only promise. I look forward to welcoming our discerning guests to discover this unspoilt island and celebrating its traditional Cycladic character.”
One&Only is undoubtedly targeting the high-end market with their supreme hospitality coupled with luxurious experiences. With the evolution of the One&Only portfolio, these new experiences will complement the existing award-winning resort collection, set in some of the most beautiful locations in the world. The beauty of One&Only is its ability to connect guests with extraordinary service, local culture and amazing vibes.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Kerzner, a global leader in luxury resorts, to develop One&OnlyKéa Island, which is expected to set a new standard of ultra-luxury resorts in the Cyclades”, commented Miltos Kambourides, Founder and Managing Partner of Dolphin Capital Partners.“Our goal is to create another world class asset, which together with Amanzoe, will rank as two of the top resorts in the Mediterranean and elevate further the image of the Greek hospitality market”.
If you are trying to map Kea, let me tell you it is the closest Cycladic Island to Athens and is can be reached by ferry or speed boat from Lavrio Harbour. Of course, One&Only Kéa Island like the rest of the One&Only collection will assure utmost privacy to all its discerning guests. In addition to providing the basics like picturesque views, sparkling water and Greek culture, the stylish resort will also be home to an indulgent destination spa, introducing traditional and holistic practices fused with modern spa therapies, with overall wellness at its core. Given how fitness is a spiralling trend in most countries, a cutting-edge fitness centre –featuring both indoor and outdoor spaces will also be part of the overall lifestyle offering at One&Only Kéa Island.
Thankfully you will have an opportunity to relish some culinary delights across the 3 restaurants and two bars; each defined by their own distinct ethos, energy, design and flavour and will bring the story of Kea to life through all senses, showcasing the bounty of the region. From an exotic Greek piazza experience, offering the ultimate restaurant for the catch of the day to the One&Only Beach Resort’s iconic international beach club, guests have just about everything in their lap of luxury.
If you find it difficult to mingle with the crowd, arrive via private luxury yacht or through the exclusive resort helicopter. The property is hell bent on curating an absolutely luxurious experience for you considering the resort will offer innovative programming for families with children whilst carefully preserving space for adults only as well.
Considering awe-inspiring natural landscapes and state-of-the-art sports, wellness, diving, art and cooking are what the experience will be, we’re certain One&OnlyKéa Island will appeal to you.
