If you’re feeling the siren call of the Greek Islands, here’s a new reason to plan a getaway: One&Only Kéa Island in the Cyclades. Designed by architect John Heah, accommodations include 63 cliffside villas with a choice of one or two bedrooms. This second Greek resort in the One&Only collection is 45 minutes by speedboat from Athens and features a selection of curated experiences for guests.

Each villa features its own private infinity pool, while interior décor includes hand-cut local stone, Greek marble, soaring atriums, rounded archways, pergolas and white-washed walls. Dining choices include Greek cuisine and freshly caught seafood at Atria; afternoon tea, fresh-pressed juices and cocktails at Kosmos; and casual fare and drinks at Kaiki pool bar. There’s also Èpicora wine bar with light fare including artisanal cheeses and charcuterie boards; and Incognito speakeasy, accessed through a prerequisite hidden door.

“Every One&Only resort is one of a kind, celebrating its exceptional location and honoring the natural landscape and local community,” said Philippe Zuber, CEO, 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. With a population of just 2,300 residents, this island is incredibly special to its people, and it was our privilege to work with the community to authentically reflect and protect Kéa’s unique spirit. This off-the-radar destination reveals a different side to the Cyclades, promising a grounding stay that leaves guests feeling relaxed and revitalized.”

While you’re in residence, enjoy traditional music, wood-roasted meats and dancing during Panigiri nights, held in the open-air space of the piazza. At the three-story One&Only Spa, guests can unwind and enjoy treatments and therapies inspired by Greek myths and legends. Pre- or post-treatment, embrace the watery essence of the nearby sea in the spa’s pools, steams, saunas and Jacuzzis.
