Six Senses selected to run new Greek island resort

Six Senses Megalonisos is slated to on 2027.

Six Senses will open its first Greek resort in 2027 on a white-sand cove on Megalonisos, one of the 10 Petalioi islands and islets with some of the finest undiscovered beaches in the “Greek Maldives”.

Six Senses Megalonisos will be a short boat ride from the port of Rafina, just across the mainland from Athens, or Marmari on Evia’s West coast.

There will be 75 guest villas and 20 branded residences, all unobtrusively blending into the contours of the bay, which is protected by prevailing winds to make it an ideal location for a mooring site for yachts and sailboats. Easy day trips to Athens add to the appeal of exploring everything from Greece’s cultural heritage – the Acropolis, Ancient Agora, Parthenon, and Temple of Olympian Zeus, to name just a few – to its abundant fine dining and street food scene.

Six Senses was chosen for this project in part for its eco-credentials in terms of energy, materials, and operations, which support Greece’s shifting approach towards sustainable and responsible tourism practices. The development will be powered by its own solar electric farm.

There will be three restaurants, a pastry café, a Six Senses Spa with multiple treatment rooms, including four double sensory suites, a Watsu for a range of hydro therapies, and a Hammam.

“Six Senses Megalonisos offers a unique opportunity to step foot on a Greek island that even the Gods left undiscovered,” says Neil Jacobs, CEO of Six Senses. “We look forward to welcoming our guests with emotional hospitality that encompasses pioneering wellness, sustainability, and meaningful experiences.”

Six Senses Megalonisos can be accessed by private boat from Rafina port (a 16-kilometre, 30-minute drive from Athens International Airport), or from the ports of Marmari or Karystos on Evia.
