One&Only Kéa Island Resort and Private Homes is set on a dramatic 65-hectare beachfront site on the ruggedly beautiful west coast of Kéa in the Cyclades. The first ultra-luxury offering on the island, this all-villa resort boasts contemporary cliffside villas, each with its own private infinity pool overlooking panoramic sea views. Immersing guests in the natural rhythms of the island, the resort offers elevated Greek cuisine, holistic wellbeing, and curated experiences that celebrate the natural, nautical, and cultural charms of the Cyclades.

“Every One&Only resort is one of a kind, celebrating its exceptional location and honouring the natural landscape and local community.” says Philippe Zuber, Chief Executive Officer, Kerzner International. “We are excited to reveal our second Greek haven and now, with two distinct properties, we offer a truly unrivalled journey across Greece through the lens of One&Only.”

The resort’s 63 villas and collection of Private Homes pay homage to Kéa’s architectural traditions. Hand-cut local stone and Greek marble feature prominently in the designs, complementing other Cycladic elements such as lofty atriums, white-washed walls, pergolas, and rounded archways. Perched on a stunning cliffside, the resort’s main arrival building and cluster of villas create a village-style atmosphere, whilst maintaining a sense of space and privacy.

One&Only Kéa Island celebrates the island’s culinary secrets showcasing produce from the land and sea, working with local skilled artisans, farmers and fishermen. The resort’s restaurants and bars showcase the island’s seasonal natural bounty and traditions, allowing guests to immerse themselves in an authentic Mediterranean diet.

Located at the heart of the resort, Atria, the resort’s lively restaurant, serves refined Greek cuisine and family-style dishes featuring fresh catch of the day, locally farmed meats, homegrown herbs and produce. Shifting moods throughout the day, Kosmos lounge offers everything from freshly pressed juices and afternoon tea to cocktails on the sea-view terrace as the sun goes down.

Sailing in the most picturesque views, the Kaiki pool bar, is the perfect spot to enjoy relaxed bites and creative cocktails by the resort’s impressive infinity pool with awe-inspiring views of the Aegean Sea beyond. Meanwhile, Èpicora wine bar, celebrates a more intimate experience with artisanal cheeses and charcuterie boards paired with Greek and international wines. Keeping some secrets of its own, Incognito speakeasy bar is hidden behind an unmarked door, boasting a selection of rare rums, fine whiskies, and Cuban-inspired cocktails in an intimate setting for just 20 guests.

Inspired by the village festivals held across the Greek islands each summer, the resort hosts vibrant ‘Panigiri’ nights in the open-air piazza, with traditional music, dancing and wood-roasted meats.

From One&Only Kéa Island, guests can deep-sea dive just offshore, charter a yacht for sailing trips to hidden beaches and neighbouring islands or take guided tours to ancient ruins, seaside villages and the hillside town of Ioulida.

The island’s One&Only Spa is a three-storeyed waterfront sanctuary dedicated to holistic wellbeing. In partnership with Subtle Energies, the spa harnesses the elemental energy of Kéa offering tailored journeys in tune with earth and sea. Inspired by Greek mythology, a variety of treatments are on offer, combining Ayurvedic healing wisdom, indigenous Kéan botanicals, and cutting-edge techniques. The spa is also home to a collection of watsu therapy pools, cold plunge pools, steam rooms, saunas, jacuzzis, and an indoor-outdoor pool overlooking uninterrupted sea views.
