Kerzner International Holdings Limited , the owner of the luxury One&Only Resorts has entered into a resort management agreement with Grivalia Hospitality S.A. for One&Only Aesthesis to be developed in Athens, Greece.
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, accelerating the strategic growth of the One&Only portfolio. 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.
A juxtaposition of ancient myth and modern indulgence, 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.
The resort will celebrate the legendary Athenian Riviera whilst providing stunning, intuitive design. A playful return to nature, 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. 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.
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 guests’ vitality and optimum health, all year round. Setting new standards for resort wellbeing, the partnership provides state-of-the-art, science-based treatments together with the extraordinary level of luxury and service that One&Only is renowned for. A cutting-edge fitness centre –featuring both indoor and outdoor spaces will also be part of the overall lifestyle offering.
