Ekies All Senses Resort
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.
