Six Senses Porto Heli set to open in 2026

Six Senses Porto Heli will bring the brand’s trademark wellness and sustainability ethos to the elegant 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. Located 200 kilometres from Athens, Porto Heli has evolved from a sleepy fishing village into a destination for glamor and outdoor adventure.

Set to open in 2026, the LEED-certified Six Senses Porto Heli will offer 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.

Woven into the topography of the site so that the buildings and land become one, the hotel will rise from the shore to maximise 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 flank the hotel and back onto a natural park to ensure privacy and seclusion. This cascade effect, conceived by Rome-based firm Delogu Architecture and Arch Group from Athens, 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.

Design elements are contemporary and natural, from the stone walls to limestone flooring, wooden structures, and bronze finishes. The local surroundings also inspire the colour palette and interior design by MuzaLab London, emphasising light and shadow play. The landscape of pine, cypress, olive trees, and lavender attracts abundant birdlife.
