Enjoy Athenian bliss with One&Only

Greece is a classic destination for all kinds of traveller: couples, families, friends, and solo. And it’s just become even more enticing with the opening of two properties by One&Only – a luxury brand known for its curated services and experiences that immerse you in your destination, giving you a feeling not only of getting away from it all but also of living something truly wonderful.

Enjoy Athenian bliss with One&Only

One&Only Aesthesis

The first is One&Only Aesthesis, a private island escape on an exclusive beachfront on the Athenian Riviera, amidst landscapes drenched in ancient myth. Expect a trio of spectacular pools and a glamorous beach and pool club, Manko, fizzing with day-to-night energy. Central to its offerings is a deeply pampering Chenot spa offering unique Grecian therapies based on traditional methods blended with state-of-the-art products and technology, plus a fantastic kids’ club featuring a treehouse village and some magical ‘lost gardens’.

If you can bring yourself to leave these cosseting surrounds, tempting experiences on offer include visits to hot springs, guided hikes, sunset surfing, and tours of the Acropolis. You’re also close to lovely Lake Vouliagmeni, countless cove beaches, and an array of ancient mythological landmarks.

Dining at the resort conveys the very essence of Athenian cuisine in authentic Greek mezes, seafood, meats, and vegan specialities, all sustainably and locally sourced. Each of the two signature restaurants has its own distinct feel, with master chefs Ettore Botrini and Paco Morales bringing their combined Italian, Greek, and Moorish culinary artistry to the table using local flavours, including the freshest seafood, olive oil, honey, and home-grown herbs and lavender.

One&Only Kéa Island

Meanwhile, One&Only Kéa Island is a one-of-a-kind, all-villa Cycladic hideaway on a secluded bay on Greece’s only fully self-sustaining island – in a largely undiscovered spot. Offering the warmest, most intuitive Mediterranean hospitality, it includes a sea view yoga studio, an indoor/outdoor fitness centre, bicycles, and both padel and tennis facilities.

This is a spectacular Aegean retreat aimed at both grounding and revitalising you, with grounds brimming with rare plants and free-roaming animals. But the concierge team will encourage you to get out and about with the likes of private boat trips to secluded beaches, mountain hiking, cycling, trail running, visits to the Karthea archaeological site, and strolls through the old town and island capital of Ioulida. There’s also an archaeological museum, The Lion of Kea ancient stone carving, and several shipwrecks to explore.

Back at the resort, the seafront spa is inspired by sophrosyne, the ancient Greek idea of a controlled balance of body and mind, and offers unique, tailor-made aromatherapy, natural skincare, and wellness treatments founded on authentic Ayurvedic principles.

The dining is also out of this world – one of the most self-sufficient islands in the Cyclades, Kéa is famous for sun-ripened produce. At the heart of the resort is an all-day taverna serving delicious Greek island classics, including seafood fresh from the boats. There’s also a glamorous beach club with a resident DJ, a pool bar, and – in the village-style piazza – a deli serving island olive products, a fromagerie, a charcuterie, and a bakery.
