Nature-inspired Luxury in Greece’s Tranquil Halkidiki Peninsula
Located in secluded Sithonia in Greece’s northern Halkidiki peninsula, Ekies (meaning “many mansions”) is a resort balancing barefoot luxury with a commitment to minimal waste. The property’s 78 rooms span eight categories. Each are influenced by the ascetic tranquility and architecture of the many Byzantine monasteries in neighboring Mount Athos. Picture stark, all-white suites for a calm escape; modernist influenced rooms utilizing raw concrete and blonde wood; and the brand-new pine suites—eco-apartments inspired by the verdant neighboring forests which are designed to blur into the outer landscape. These include private gardens and pools, and are directly connected to the lush surrounding forest.
