Located on the exclusive Glyfada seafront, along the Athenian Riviera, One&Only’s debut resort in Greece is set to welcome guests from October 2023. Overlooking the Saronic Gulf, One&Only Aesthesis is set within a protected 21-hectare beach and forest reserve. Framed by lavender fields and coastal views, the resort evokes the feeling of a private island, just a short drive from the ancient wonders of the Greek capital.

One&Only Aesthesis has a collection of rooms, bungalows, villas, and an exclusive community of One&Only Private Homes. The architecture pays homage to mid-century design with high ceilings, woven leather details, muted tones, and natural accents. The resort’s 95 bungalows, 18 residences, and two villas come with private pools, gardens, and outdoor showers, and fireplaces. One&Only’s signature Villa One is spread over 15,000 square feet and has a swimming pool and an expansive deck that stretches right to the water’s edge.

Tip: For larger groups and multi-generational stays, Villa One can be connected to Villa Nostos, the resort’s second villa, to create a four-bedroom retreat. A Two-Bedroom Epos Residence can also be adjoined to create a one-of-a-kind six-bedroom space for a friend or family getaway.

There are 14 One&Only Private Homes, each with a unique style. Owners of One&Only Private Homes will enjoy complimentary access and use of One&Only Aesthesis resort facilities, along with a plethora of global network privileges.

Foodies take note: One&Only Aesthesis has added Michelin-starred and celebrity chefs, Ettore Botrini and Paco Morales, to its team. The resort will pay homage to the thousands of years of Greek culture and cuisine, using ingredients grown locally.

Ora, Greek for "time," is an all-day dining restaurant with Chef Ettore Botrini at the helm. His menu focuses on fresh Mediterranean flavors. Adding a touch of Andalusian-Mediterranean cuisine, El Bar de Paco Morales will be a pop-up dining venue inspired by the chef’s home city of Cordoba. Centered around an olive tree, Alelia bar will offer signature olive cocktails infused with fresh herbs from the resort’s garden. Homegrown concept Thimisi is inspired by two of the most iconic personalities of the Athenian golden era—Maria Callas and Jackie O. Minima, a beach and pool bar, will be the place to unwind and escape on the water’s edge.

 The resort will also offer curated experiences designed to reveal the natural and cultural wonders of Athens, from discovering World Heritage sites to sailing, hiking, and soaking in the region’s famed hot springs. Facilities at the resort include a spa and the Club One fitness hub, complete with a gym, tennis courts, and Padel. The Kids-only Club will offer nature-based activities and educational programs that inspire learning, while the adults-only Beach Club will come with cabanas, live music, and dining.

 Situated in Glyfada, the resort is a short, 30-minute drive from Athens city center and from Athens International Airport. One&Only Aesthesis will begin welcoming guests in October 2023.

 To spearhead the opening, One&Only has appointed Yann Gillet as general manager. Having held leadership roles worldwide, Yann brings over 20 years of international hospitality experience.
