This Glydafa hotel evokes the heyday of the Athenian Riviera

Glydafa hotel

Located on a sandy stretch of beachfront in the glitzy southern Athens suburb of Glyfada, the One&Only Aesthesis hotel channels laid back, vintage glamour.

London design studio Muza Lab oversaw the Greek hotel’s interiors, mixing retro pieces with flashes of colour and a palette of natural materials. Wood figures heavily used in furniture and room panelling and paired with marble and stone.

Muza Lab’s use of a rich, royal blue calls to mind the iconic roofs of Santorini, although, for One&Only Aesthesis, it’s been channeled into graphic artworks, sun lounger cushions and striped parasols. Guests can check into villas with their own decks and pools or rooms with private terraces and a distinctly midcentury feel.

Guests can also rent one of the hotel’s yachts for a day of sailing on the Aegean Sea, join a Greek sandal-making workshop or soak up some treatments in the hotel spa. Rooms start around £650 per night, going up to £10,000 for standalone villas.
