Six Senses to open a resort in Greece’s Porto Heli

Ultra-luxury hospitality brand Six Senses has announced that it will open a new resort in Greece’s Porto Heli, located at a distance of 200 kilometres from the Greek capital, Athens.

Six Senses Porto Heli will be located in Ermioni in the beautiful Greek Peloponnese, with the famous islands of Spetses and Hydra within view. The beauty spot is surrounded by protected coves and bays enjoying the clear waters of the Aegean and is known for its yacht-filled marinas, palatial summer villas, sun-kissed Mediterranean landscape, fine dining, and boutique stores.

Historically, the Peloponnese has been the main field of action for Greece since prehistoric times, hosting important archaeological sites, including Olympia, Epidaurus, and Mycenae. Porto Heli has evolved from a sleepy fishing village into a destination for glamor and outdoor adventure.

Six Senses Porto Heli will feature around 60 rooms and suites most with private plunge pools and private terraces or gardens, along with a three-bedroom retreat villa. In addition, there will be 10 branded residential villas for sale, offering five to eight bedrooms. The resort is scheduled to open in 2026 and will be LEED certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).

Six Senses Porto Heli will create a haven of wellness and emotional hospitality along the captivating shores of Ermioni, with panoramic vistas of Spetses and Hydra. We’re hoping to add an exciting new chapter to the Peloponnesian heritage and legacy. As we embark on this journey, we are committed to nurturing the essence of the region while introducing new ideas in holistic rejuvenation.

Woven into the topography of the site so that the buildings and land become one, the hotel will rise from the shore to maximize the sea views, from the large infinity pool and spa on the lower level to the rooms split across two levels and up to the lobby and reception enjoying a panoramic view. The residential villas will flank the hotel and back onto a natural park to ensure privacy and seclusion.

This cascade effect reflects the relationship with nature, with buildings bridging the forest and the sea. Indoor spaces lead seamlessly to the outdoors and a resort lifestyle where guests can disconnect from the everyday and reconnect with loved ones.

The all-day main restaurant will sit directly on the beach, joined by a sunset bar with panoramic views, traditional Greek Kafeneio, a variety of private outdoor event spaces, and an organic vegetable garden. Along with eight treatment rooms, thermal wet areas and heat experiences, and an indoor swimming pool with ocean views, the 1,600 square-meter Six Senses Spa will house a Biohacking Lounge, boutique and concept store, outdoor fitness and wellness circuit, and spa herbal gardens.

Other facilities will include an Alchemy Bar, Earth Lab, outdoor pool and sports facilities, sound healing dome, and Grow With Six Senses play area and activities for children. Down by the beach, there will be a boat jetty and beach club hosting a range of water sports, beach dining, and juice and coffee bars.

Design elements will be contemporary and natural, from the stone walls to limestone flooring, wooden structures, and bronze finishes. The local surroundings will also inspire the color palette and interior design, emphasizing light and shadow play. The landscape of pine, cypress, olive trees, and lavender will help in attracting abundant birdlife.
