A bacchanalian celebration of Athens planned through One&Only’s ultra-luxury lifestyle experience.
One&Only Aesthesis to be developed in Athens, Greece. The opening is scheduled for 2022.
Ultra-luxury hospitality portfolio is expanding on the Athenian Riviera in Greece with One&Only Aesthesis. Kerzner International Holdings Limited, the owner of the ultra-luxury One&Only Resorts and iconic Atlantis Resort & Residences brands worldwide, has entered into a resort management agreement with Grivalia Hospitality S.A. for One&Only Aesthesis to be developed in Athens, Greece.
One&Only was created exclusively for the ultra-luxury market and conceived as a hallmark of excellence. This new resort will complement the existing award-winning resort collection, set in some of the most beautiful locations in the world.
Tucked away in a legendary hideaway on the dramatic Glyfada seafront, glamour will return to this fabled location, with a bacchanalian celebration of Athens through One&Only’s ultra-luxury lifestyle experience.
The 21-hectare beachfront estate, within a 6-hectare forest reserve, responds to demand for additional One&Only experiences in Europe following the recent opening of One&Only Portonovi in Montenegro and the announced development of One&Only Kea Island in Greece.
This exclusive beachfront location, just outside of the city centre of Athens, is incredible; the perfect destination to begin, or end, any Greek adventure.
One&Only Aesthesis is at the crossroads of Greek history and culture-from the Acropolis and Parthenon to Syntagma Square and Cape Sounio and the glamourous Athenian Riviera, with its exclusive beachfront of Glyfada. The resort is just moments away from the vibrant metropolis, surrounded by endless blues and glistening islands dotting the horizon. A true paradise embodying Grecian heritage and authentic Athenian allure, the resort will be the perfect sanctuary, honouring the cosmopolitan sophistication of the ‘60s and ‘70s.
Remaining true to the One&Only brand promise, the resort will celebrate the legendary Athenian Riviera whilst providing intuitive design. The resort is inspired by the azure waters and the incredible natural surroundings, providing a modern Greek elegance, yet showcasing powerful elements dominant in Greek mythology like fire and water, carved from a palette of natural stone and timber.
As with all One&Only properties, the resort will offer innovative programming for families with children whilst carefully preserving space for adults only as well.
“Grivalia Hospitality is excited to revive a landmark site along the Athenian Riviera and join forces with Kerzner International for One&Only, a distinguished global leader in ultra-luxury hospitality. One&Only Aesthesis will be on one of the most iconic and cosmopolitan waterfront sites in Athens, originally designed by prominent Greek architects. From its development in the mid-1950s, the bungalows, the beach and the club hosted an array of the local and international jet set. Upon completion, this contemporary hybrid city resort will become the most unique high-end destination in the Mediterranean all year-round,” commented George Chryssikos, Founder and Chairman, Grivalia Hospitality.
Located on 1600 metres of seafront, the new resort will offer an iconic yet nostalgia-drenched beach club, providing an ultra-luxury, chic location from sunrise to sunset, and beyond, for guests and residents alike.
Like all properties within the One&Only collection, One&Only Aesthesis will place an emphasis on privacy, the ultimate hideaway, with the majority of accommodation being secluded villas with private pools, perfect for couples or families. Villa One will also be introduced, the definitive word in exclusivity and what will surely become Athens’ most sought-after address.
Following an exclusive global partnership with leading health and wellness expert brand Chenot, the resort will be home to Chenot Spa, with tailored programmes and pioneering treatments scientifically designed to enhance vitality and optimum health, all year round. A cutting-edge fitness centre –featuring both indoor and outdoor spaces will also be part of the overall lifestyle offering.
