In a secluded bay where the azure waters of the Aegean meet the craggy beauty of the Greek Peloponnese, Six Senses Porto Heli is quietly taking shape. With the islands of Spetses and Hydra looming elegantly in the distance, and a backcloth of yacht-filled marinas and sumptuous villas, this oasis of luxury is poised to bring an entirely new ethos of wellness and sustainability to Ermioni, one of Greece’s most storied locales.
Porto Heli’s evolution from a quaint fishing village to a hotspot for the global elite has been remarkable, yet this new addition promises to eclipse its existing grandeur. Situated 200 kilometers from Athens, the region is rich in history and natural beauty, harboring ancient archaeological sites like Olympia, Epidaurus, and Mycenae. Its fabled waters have greeted adventurers for millennia; soon, they will offer respite to seekers of 21st-century luxuries—both physical and spiritual.
The resort, LEED-certified to ensure a minimal ecological footprint, will offer roughly 60 meticulously designed rooms and suites—most featuring private plunge pools, terraces, or gardens—as well as an opulent three-bedroom retreat villa. For those looking to make a more permanent investment in the good life, 10 branded residential villas, boasting five to eight bedrooms, will also be available for sale.
Designed in collaboration between Rome’s Delogu Architecture and Athens’ Arch Group, the buildings and the landscape appear as one, with a cascading architectural effect that bridges the lush forest to the cerulean sea. This union of manmade and natural beauty is immediately evident as you traverse from the grand lobby to the panoramic reception, your gaze pulled irresistibly to the infinity pool and beyond, toward the open sea.
Inside, MuzaLab London’s interiors are a masterclass in modern organic aesthetics, with stone walls, limestone flooring, and wooden structures adorned with bronze finishes. Inspired by the tranquil Peloponnesian landscape, the design palette encourages a play of light and shadow, creating a sense of harmony and grounding.
Wellness lies at the heart of Six Senses Porto Heli, epitomized by its expansive 1,600-square-meter spa. In addition to a range of treatment rooms and thermal wet areas, the spa will feature a Biohacking Lounge, wellness circuit, and even a herbal garden—all meticulously designed to revitalize both body and soul. Expect traditional techniques to meet innovative biohacks, elevating your wellness journey to a near-spiritual experience.
Gastronomy at the resort will be a nod to both global influences and local traditions, with an all-day restaurant situated directly on the beach. Those looking to bask in the final rays of the Grecian sun can make their way to the sunset bar, sipping cocktails created with herbs sourced from the resort’s own organic garden. Moreover, the property will include an Alchemy Bar, Earth Lab, sound healing dome, and sports facilities, with children not forgotten thanks to the Grow With Six Senses play area.
For the more adventurous, the resort’s boat jetty and beach club will offer an array of water sports, along with beachside dining options and chic juice and coffee bars. With its future debut, Six Senses Porto Heli, is set to be a hymn to the timelessness of the Greek landscape, combined with an unequivocal commitment to sustainability and wellness.
