The new resort offers private villas, holistic wellbeing, and curated experiences on a secluded Aegean island

One&Only has opened its second resort in Greece, One&Only Kéa Island, bringing luxury hospitality to an untapped Aegean destination. On the west coast of Kéa in the Cyclades, the resort aims to offer guests an immersive Mediterranean experience through its all-villa accommodations, wellness programmes, and curated activities.

Set on a 65-hectare beachfront site, One&Only Kéa Island features 63 contemporary cliff-side villas, each with a private infinity pool and panoramic sea views.

The resort’s design, led by architect John Heah, incorporates local materials such as hand-cut stone and Greek marble, blending traditional Cycladic elements and modern luxury. The villas offer expansive indoor-outdoor living spaces designed to embrace the island’s natural rhythms.

The resort also includes a limited collection of private homes available for purchase. These residences range from one to six bedrooms and are located on the opposite side of Vroskopos Bay. They offer infinity-edge pools, spacious entertaining areas, and native gardens.

Culinary experiences at One&Only Kéa Island include celebrating local produce and traditions. The resort’s main restaurant, Atria, serves refined Greek cuisine and family-style dishes featuring fresh local ingredients. The Kosmos lounge offers a variety of options throughout the day, from freshly pressed juices to cocktails on the sea-view terrace.

The Kaiki pool bar provides relaxed bites and creative cocktails by the infinity pool. The Èpicora wine bar pairs artisanal cheeses and charcuterie with a selection of Greek and international wines. The Incognito speakeasy bar offers an intimate setting with rare rums, fine whiskies, and Cuban-inspired cocktails.

The resort’s Bond Beach Club offers a blend of Mediterranean and Asian flavours, vibrant tunes from resident DJs, and a jetty for guests arriving by boat. The club is designed to capture the laid-back energy of a Greek summer, with barefoot luxury as its hallmark.

One&Only Kéa Island provides tailored experiences highlighting the island’s natural and cultural charms. The resort’s dive centre offers underwater adventures for all levels, with opportunities to explore four historic wrecks just offshore.

Guests can also charter yachts for sailing trips to hidden beaches and neighbouring islands. A resident archaeologist leads tours to excavation sites, ancient ruins, and the hillside town of Ioulida.

The One&Only Spa, in partnership with Subtle Energies, offers holistic wellbeing treatments inspired by Greek mythology, including  watsu therapy pools, cold plunge pools, steam rooms, saunas, jacuzzis, and an indoor-outdoor pool with sea views.

The resort’s Club One features an indoor-outdoor fitness centre, padel and tennis courts, and a dedicated area for teens. The KidsOnly Club provides creative activities for younger guests.

One&Only Kéa Island is now open and welcoming guests.
