One&Only Kéa Debuts as Aegean’s Most Exclusive Island Escape

Only a short 30-minute boat ride from Athens lies Kéa Island, a hidden treasure among the Cyclades. This pristine gem serves as a beloved weekend escape for residents of Athens, and it’s where you’ll find the One&Only’s latest opening, One&Only Kéa.

Perched above a protected cove on the beautifully rugged west coast, One&Only Kéa Island offers privacy, tranquillity, and an immersive experience of authentic Aegean life at its finest. The opening of One&Only Kéa Island closely follows the successful debut of One&Only Aesthesis on the Athenian Riviera. Thanks to smooth speedboat links between these two luxurious retreats, they present an irresistible itinerary for those planning their European summer.

Designed by acclaimed architect John Heah, One&Only Kéa is home to 63 cliffside villas that have been strategically positioned to maximise privacy, while showcasing panoramic views over Kéa’s dramatic landscapes and the Aegean Sea. Choose between one or two bedrooms, the light-filled interiors flow to outdoor terraces, where private infinity pools and fireplaces promise elevated alfresco living. The interiors feature locally sourced white marble, curved atriums, and floor-to-ceiling windows framing endless sea views. The Two-Bedroom Cliff Villas are ideal for families or group of friends, accommodating up to four adults and two children.

Across the tranquil bay lies an exclusive collection of 40 One&Only Private Homes that are available for purchase. Drawing inspiration from contemporary Greek design aesthetics, these coveted freehold villas offer a choice of one to six bedrooms. They offer seamless indoor-outdoor living, with gardens, dining terraces, and cliffside swimming pools surrounded by sunken daybeds. One&Only Private Homeowners enjoy exceptional privileges, including exclusive benefits at Kerzner properties worldwide and access to the resort facilities right on their doorstep.

As the closest Cycladic island to Athens, Kéa’s waters are a magnet for yachts in the region. Nestled along the serene bay of the resort, Bond Beach Club injects unrivalled glamour and energy to the island, with a star-studded calendar of guest DJs, a vibrant menu of locally sourced ingredients, elevated cocktails, and one-of-a-kind culinary experiences on the water’s edge.

Elsewhere, inspired by rich culinary traditions on the island, the resort’s restaurants and bars showcase seasonal ingredients and local producers. Echoing the lively ambience of an authentic village piazza, Atria promises flavourful Greek cuisine in a convivial atmosphere, served within the airy dining room or on the sea-view terrace.

By day, Kosmos lobby bar welcomes guests for elevated Afternoon Tea with a Greek twist; as night falls, it is the place to be for sunset drinks under the vast open skylight. Overlooking the resort’s mirage-like main pool and the shimmering Aegean Sea, Kaiki serves relaxed bites and drinks throughout the day. Èpicora wine bar is a sophisticated setting for artisanal cheeses, local charcuterie, and an array of Greek and international wines, with intimate tastings led by the sommelier.

Hidden behind a secret door and with seating for just 20 guests, dark and discrete Incognito is a Cuban-accented speakeasy bar that boasts a collection of rare whiskies and rums, refined cocktails, and a humidor of vintage cigars.

Creating an unrivalled wellness destination in the Cyclades, the resort will also be home to an exceptional new One&Only Spa. In partnership with Subtle Energies, the three-storey spa is rooted in the notion of sophrosyne (sof-ros-i-nee), the ancient Greek expression for balancing mind and body. The seafront sanctuary will offer signature treatments crafted exclusively for One&Only Kéa Island, inspired by Greek mythology and the healing benefits of natural active ingredients.
