Kerzner International Holdings Limited has entered into a partnership agreement with Dolphin Capital Partners and Dolphin Capital Investors for the development of One&Only Kéa Island resort in Greece, inclusive of long-term management. Situated in a 65-hectare beachfront site on the west side of Kéa Island of the Cyclades, this lifestyle experience will include 75 resort villas, as well as One&Only Private Homes available for purchase.
This will be the second One&Only resort in Europe as part of the expanding One&Only portfolio, with the evolution of the brand set to include One&Only Nature Resorts, One&Only Urban Resorts and One&Only Private Homes to the existing collection of Beach Resorts. Kerzner International has plans to continue to grow and develop the One&Only brand globally.
“One&Only resorts are the ultimate ultra-luxury experience that celebrate their destination, and Greece will be no exception. Kea is such an incredible island and our partners, Dolphin Capital Partners are leaders in development of luxury mixed-use resorts,” commented Philippe Zuber, President and COO, One&Only Resorts.
“Our goal is to introduce the finest resort in the Mediterranean and I am confident that One&Only Kéa Island will deliver on the One&Only promise. I look forward to welcoming our discerning guests to discover this unspoilt island and celebrating its traditional Cycladic character.”
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Kerzner, a global leader in luxury resorts, to develop One&Only Kéa Island, which is expected to set a new standard of ultra-luxury resorts in the Cyclades”, commented Miltos Kambourides, Founder and Managing Partner of Dolphin Capital Partners. “Our goal is to create another world class asset, which together with Amanzoe, will rank as two of the top resorts in the Mediterranean and elevate further the image of the Greek hospitality market”.
Like all properties within the One&Only collection, One&Only Kéa Island will place an emphasis on privacy for couples and families. The resort will also be home to a destination spa, introducing traditional and holistic practices fused with modern spa therapies. A fitness centre, featuring both indoor and outdoor spaces, will also be part of the overall lifestyle offering at One&Only Kéa Island.
The resort will offer three restaurants and two bars. This will include a Greek piazza experience, offering fresh cuisine from morning to night, as well as the restaurant for the catch of the day, grilled over open flames. In addition, One&Only Kéa Island will be home to a cantilevered lounge built into the cliffside. Outdoor spaces will also be available that can be transformed into incredible locations for private events, offering spectacular views.
