One&Only: The new luxury hideaway on the Athens Riviera
With the One&Only Aesthesis, one of the most luxurious hotels in the world joins the fabulous Athens Riviera. Despite its private beachfront location, the new opening is just a stone's throw from millennia-old culture and vibrant city life. A must for the bucket list!
11 May 2022
Between fragrant lavender, the jeweled expanse of the Aegean, and white dream beaches, the luxurious One&Only resorts have secured a spot for themselves: Even before its opening, the One&Only Aesthesis can rightly call itself the most exclusive property on the Athens Riviera. Wellness par excellence, glamorous suites, fine cuisine, and cultural delights that make hearts beat faster - this is where we want to go.

Spanning 21 hectares, the new One&Only resort is located in the south of Athens near Glyfada. The sea view, great amenities, outstanding service and stylish architecture are just some of the features that will make luxury travelers' eyes glaze over. Incidentally, families will feel just as comfortable at the new opening as solo travelers or couples, for whom there is a adults only-area.
The Aesthesis will be the third property of the One&Only hotel chain throughout Europe, joining Kea Island in Greece and the exclusive Portonovi in Montenegro.
A dream in the Aegean Sea ...
If you want a comfortable bed, you should spend your Athens nights at the Aesthesis. The Riviera resort has 127 private rooms, suites and villas. It goes without saying that the high-ceilinged rooms, with their chic leather, soft colors and accentuated patterns, pay homage to mid-century design.
The One&Only has gone deep into Greek and especially Athenian cuisine for its culinary experience. Seafood, meat, vegan alternatives, of course, sustainable and regional - it tastes impeccable. One can dine in two restaurants, while the Olive and Sunset Bar invite you to enjoy a sundowner among palm trees and stylish design.
Spa favorite: Chenot
Lovers of the One&Only already know it, and newcomers will quickly learn to love it: the holistic Chenot Spa combines traditional, alternative therapies with scientifically based beauty and health treatments. This is holistic wellness at its best, inspired by the unique setting on the Athens Riviera.
Pure culture and nature near Athens
As if the One&Only Aesthesis wasn't reason enough to hop on a plane south, a diverse program of nature, culture, and urban activities opens up outside the resort's doors. If you're craving sun, beach and more, take a stroll along the expansive coastline of the Athens Riviera, smell the lavender and spread out your towel in one of the numerous bays. The Aegean Sea is too cold? A bath in the thermal springs of Lake Vouliagmeni quickly warms travelers up again. Natural healing power included!
And then there is the multifaceted Athens, not far from the One&Only Aesthesis: In the Greek metropolis, the cradle of culture, ancient temples and great museums line up with shopping malls or cool rooftop bars, fine dining is available here as well as street food. Even a little cycladic Charm has taken root, in the form of the Anafiotika neighborhood, in Athens.
