History & Story
Located in the Athenian Riviera, a sprawling coastal area in Southern Athens, One&Only Aesthesis is a desired escape from urban life. The fabled land is framed by lavender flora, vibrant forestry, and striking oleanders, where tranquil coastline overlooks the Saronic Gulf, and the oceans are dusted with impressive yachts and islands glistening in the horizon. The resort is nestled in a thriving forest, just moments away from the vibrant metropolis of Athens – a true paradise that embodies Grecian culture combined with vibrant Athenian glamour. Welcome to a private island feel, in the eye of Greece. The Athenian Riviera whispers of the past, with the vibrant cosmopolitan buzz of the 60s and 70s glimmering in the summer air. The bungalows are inspired by this modern Hollywood Grecian era. This design brings far more than memories alone, as for many Greeks, this will transcend time and transport them to the paradise of their youth. The Athenian Riviera is a place to dip your toes in the warm waters, dance the night away and make sun-drenched secrets bathed in time. Imagine yourself here. A true Riviera paradise drenched in mid-century glamour with an air of Athenian elegance, where everyone is home, and everyone is family.
