Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Porto Heli, Greece
Written by Antoní Loza
Trend-setting Nikki Beach has released its unique vibe on Porto Heli, Greece. And, just like that, the Greek Riviera’s coolest lifestyle boutique resort and spa has been born.
Looking out at the calm azure waters of the Aegean Sea, one readily sees why Nikki Beach founder Jack Penrod gave the nod to open the brand’s first resort and spa in Porto Heli: it’s simply stunning.
Set in one of the most picturesque and exclusive locations on the Greek mainland, the fully refurbished 1970s hotel is reminiscent of an art deco building on Miami’s South Beach (home of the original Nikki Beach Club). It boasts 66 elegantly designed, technologically advanced, panoramic seafront rooms and suites. Most suites come with private outdoor entertainment areas and pools, and every room is a comfortable sanctuary. Even if the luxuriously chilled-out Beach Club is pumping, the sound-proofing in the rooms is so good that you won’t hear a thing.
But chances are you will want to hear, and see, what’s happening at the Beach Club. With its lavish themed events and excellent tunes, delicious food and drinks, and staff who are both attentive and friendly, guests are reminded why they came to the Nikki Beach Resort & Spa in Porto Heli: to bask in its world-renowned ambiance and truly feel like a VIP.
Get Nikki Beach to arrange a water taxi to whisk you to Spetses (10-minute ride), one of the most beautiful and exclusive islands in all of Greece. A playground for the jet-set, many of Spetses’ neo-classical villas and Côte d’Azur-esque mansions were originally built by wealthy Greek ship owners over a century ago.
