What an unbeatable location fronting onto a near private beach, a kind of Greek 'Maldives' with fine white sand, shallow translucent waters and small deserted island oases floating on the swirling sands of the seabed, broken only by patches of deep cobalt and bright turquoise; a paradise on Earth by anyone's standards. The Ekies All Senses Resort brings style and understated raw elegance to these wonderfully pristine shores, overlooked and protected from afar by the unique monastic peninsula of Mount Athos, brooding across the bay. Not too long ago this coastline was deserted except for a straggle of nomadic tourists during summer months in search of tranquillity and untainted landscapes. Although more developed today, the area is still pure and unspoilt, retaining that all important ecological footprint, a quality that has been fully embraced by the Ekies All Senses Resort.
Realising her childhood dream the owner has transformed this once drab, run-down, mediocre hotel without soul, like so many throughout the country, into a minimalist eco-haven, reflecting Greek tradition and custom. The result is a fusion of classic Greek styles with contemporary minimalism, some of it quirky, creating a harmonious barefoot chic ambiance conducive to letting your hair down and unwinding from the stresses of everyday life. The oversize sofas and tables in the lobby, open-air lounge by the Beach Bar, the tree-top den and carefree hammocks strung here and there lend to the general laid-back style of this beachside resort.
After years of painstaking tweaking and transformation the guest rooms comprise a refreshing collection of individual styles from pared-down white island luxury to Greek country elegance creating a kaleidoscope of tastes and colours. Outside, the resort comes into its own taking full advantage of its natural surroundings. There is something intrinsically atmospheric and gratifying about dining next to the beach with the water gently lapping against the wet sand, or sipping a Caipirinha at sunset amongst the pine needles at tree top height overlooking the calm bay; all pleasures that you can experience at the Ekies All Senses Resort, whence the name comes from.
