Kerzner International Holdings has entered into a partnership agreement with Dolphin Capital Partners and Dolphin Capital Investors, for the development of One&Only Kéa Island resort in Greece, inclusive of long-term management.
Situated in a 65-hectare beachfront site on the west side of Kea island of the Cyclades, this ultimate ultra-luxury lifestyle experience will include 75 resort villas, as well as One&Only Private Homes available for purchase. This will be the second One&Only resort in Europe as part of the expanding One&Only portfolio, with the announcement of the evolution of the brand earlier this year to include One&Only Nature Resorts, One&Only Urban Resorts and One&Only Private Homes to the existing collection of award-winning Beach Resorts.
"One&Only resorts are the ultimate ultra-luxury experience that celebrates their destination, and Greece will be no exception. Kea is such an incredible island and our partners, Dolphin Capital Partners are leaders in the development of luxury mixed-use resorts," commented Philippe Zuber, President and Chief Operating Officer, One&Only Resorts. "Our goal is to introduce the finest resort in the Mediterranean and I am confident that One&Only Kéa Island will deliver on the One&Only promise. I look forward to welcoming our discerning guests to discover this unspoilt island and celebrating its traditional Cycladic character."
"We are thrilled to be partnering with Kerzner, a global leader in luxury resorts, to develop One&Only Kéa Island, which is expected to set a new standard of ultra-luxury resorts in the Cyclades," commented Miltos Kambourides, Founder and Managing Partner of Dolphin Capital Partners. "Our goal is to create another world-class asset, which together with Amanzoe, will rank as two of the top resorts in the Mediterranean and elevate further the image of the Greek hospitality market."
