One&Only Launches Second Greek Paradise: One&Only Kéa Island

Located in the heart of the Aegean Sea, One&Only has just launched its latest property, One&Only Kéa Island Resort.

On the untouched island of Kéa, just 45 minutes from Athens by speedboat, this private resort offers a true Mediterranean experience in paradise.

Following the resounding success of One&Only Aesthesis, Athens, which debuted in 2023, the brand continues its Greek odyssey with the opening of this exquisite haven.

A Tranquil Haven in the Cyclades

One&Only Kéa Island Resort and Private Homes occupy a picturesque 65-hectare expanse along the ruggedly picturesque west coast of Kéa. Representing the epitome of luxury, the resort comprises contemporary cliffside villas, each boasting its own private infinity pool overlooking the azure expanse of the Aegean.

Guests are immersed in the island’s rhythms, with opportunities to enjoy elevated Greek cuisine, holistic wellness, and curated adventures that showcase the Cyclades’ natural, nautical and cultural charm.

Philippe Zuber, Chief Executive Officer of Kerzner International, affirms, “Every One&Only resort is one of a kind, celebrating its exceptional location and honouring the natural landscape and local community.”

Architectural Wonders Inspired by Tradition

Renowned architect John Heah has masterfully crafted the resort’s 63 villas and Private Homes to pay homage to Kéa’s rich architectural heritage. Utilising locally sourced materials such as hand-cut stone and Greek marble, Heah seamlessly integrates Cycladic elements into the design, including lofty atriums, whitewashed walls, pergolas, and rounded archways.

Perched majestically on the cliffside, the main arrival building and villa cluster evoke a charming village ambience while ensuring ample space and privacy. Whether opting for one or two bedrooms, guests luxuriate in expansive indoor-outdoor living spaces designed for al fresco living.
