/ November 2020

gt&i was invited, after an initial presentation of strategy to the Athens based management team, to deliver the positioning, naming, branding, website, brochures and advertising for a new leisure and residential destination in Porto Heli, a region described as the Hamptons of Greece by Vanity Fair.

Led by Dophin Capital, operators of Niki Beach Resort  & Spar and Amanzoe, Kilada will feature stunning Country and Beach Clubs, a hotel overlooking the bay, private villas by leading European Architectural practices, in addition to a selection of formal and informal bars and restaurants.  Add in the only Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course in the Eastern Mediterranean and it is a stand out destination.

The unique feel of a Country Club creates resonance with an international audience summering in Porto Heli and those accessing Kilada in just 30 minutes by helicopter from Athens.  That sense of belonging, that wealth of choice, and a feeling of club ownership gave rise to MyKilada. As we like to say Some call it paradise.  Now you can call it home.
