Offering all-inclusive luxury across a range of Mediterranean destinations, Ikos resorts have placed first and second in the 2019 Travellers’ Choice Awards held by TripAdvisor. It is easy to see why Ikos Oceania and Olivia are so popular, situated in the gorgeous Halkidiki region of Greece, but every one of the Ikos resorts offers something special.
The beautiful hotels are complemented with luxury touches, including free museum passes for guests, a-la-carte dining prepared by Michelin-starred chefs and a dine-out service that encourages you to make the most of the local cuisine. When paired with views of the inviting blue-green sea and stunning stretches of sandy beaches, as well as complementary car hire, guests are assured of a fuss-free, immersive island experience. All this before you even consider the Deluxe option…
If you want to experience truly unique and opulent service, upgrading to the deluxe collection will ensure you are treated like a VIP for your entire stay, with benefits such as express check-in, a packing and unpacking service, complementary spa treatments, in-room dining and a concierge service. Adults will love the exclusive bottle of Taittinger champagne upon arrival, while kids will appreciate a comprehensive movie library and PlayStation rental. You can then spend your stay relaxing in private on your own exclusive beach area, with service right up to your sunbed.
The dining options differ slightly across the various Ikos resorts, but all food is made to the highest quality standards and prepared by chefs that have earned their Michelin stars, considered to be the highest honour in the restaurant world.
If you want to explore the local area, the Ikos Dine Out option recommends restaurants in popular tourist hotspots. Guests staying at Ikos hotels can enjoy meals at these eateries at no extra cost, although reservations are highly recommended.
Happy kids make for relaxed parents, so Ikos have planned a range of children’s’ activities that allow mum and dad to put their feet up for a while. All DBS-checked staff are fully qualified to look after children, offering a creche for those aged three-years and under, a Heroes Kids Club for the under 12s and a Just4Teens club. There is also a football academy catering for sports-mad children aged 5-14.
Guests are advised to book their children into the clubs before arrival, in order to avoid disappointment and the weekly schedule is displayed in the hotel on arrival. Activities include arts and crafts, excursions, and fun in the pool, play area and tennis courts. The aim is to ensure children have the best holiday ever.
If the heated outdoor swimming pools aren’t enough to get you working up a sweat, the fitness studio and spa wet areas are sure to impress. The evening entertainment programme offers a wonderful opportunity for families to come together after a day of clubs and sunbathing to enjoy live music and theatrical productions.
