Kick off your shoes, wiggle your toes in the sand, and slip into the languid pace of Ekies All Senses Resort, a pared-down retreat that takes a barefoot approach to holiday relaxation. Celebrating its Greek roots and stunning natural location, the simple design lets the pristine surroundings shine and embraces the notion that luxury should be measured by one’s ecological footprint. On an unspoiled beach in Vourvourou on the east side of Sithonia—one of three peninsulas in Halkidiki on the translucent waters of the Aegean Sea—the resort is surrounded by rocky islands, caves, crystal waters, sandy beaches, and pine tree forests. The design blends with this idyllic landscape through the use of natural, unrefined materials, such as solid wood and Greek grey marble. The 69 rooms and suites weave Greek tradition with distinctive designs, while organic forms, sustainability, and an ethos of minimal waste complete the resort’s eco-philosophy.

Rooms and Suites

With 11 different room categories—from Standard Doubles to Penthouse Suites, Family Suites, and beyond—Ekies has something for everyone.

Starting at 25 square meters, Standard Doubles offer queen-size beds from Coco Mat, while suites range from 45 to 90 square meters and can come with private pools and multiple living rooms and baths.
