Ikos Olivia 

An outstanding all-inclusive with a beautiful beachfront location

This luxury resort is vibrant and welcoming, redefining all-inclusive as ‘Infinite Lifestyle’.

Tucked among 22 acres of beachfront landscaped gardens on the Halkidiki peninsula, Ikos Olivia shines with its impressive all-inclusive package – think meals prepared by Michelin-starred chefs, 24-hour room service, a Dine Out programme giving you complimentary dining at local restaurants and unlimited non-motorised watersports, among other standouts. There’s plenty going on here; children are well looked after with their own pool, playground and kids’ clubs, while the spa is a peaceful haven for couples after a little down-time. The dining is exceptional, and there’s a real focus on exploring beyond the resort, too; the included Culture Pass provides free access to local attractions, while a Local Drive Adventure gives you a complimentary car for a day.

Why we love Ikos Olivia

  • It’s in a prime location in Halkidiki, with a private, powder-soft beach on the doorstep.

  • There’s an impressive list of inclusions under the Infinite Lifestyle concept, including non-motorised watersports, tennis, mountain biking, nightly entertainment, a Culture Pass and a Local Drive Adventure that gives you a complimentary car for a day.

  • There are five great restaurants – two overseen by Michelin-starred chefs – and under Ikos’ innovative Dine Out programme, you’ll get a complimentary meal at selected local restaurants too.

  • It’s perfect for families with kids’ clubs, children’s menus and great childcare facilities, but couples are well catered for too, with several adult-only areas and a lovely spa.

Dining is an exciting venture here, with several of the resort’s à la carte restaurants overseen by Michelin-starred chefs. Three of the restaurants are open throughout the day, serving Mediterranean, traditional Greek and French fare, while dinner adds in Italian and Asian. There are several bars and a gelaterie too, and wine lovers will find plenty to please at the Cava wine cellar. For a taste of local flavours, the innovative Ikos Dine Out service invites guests to eat at a restaurant in the nearby coastal village of Gerakini for no extra cost.

Set right on the beachfront, this Mediterranean-inspired restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets centred around fresh produce, with a carefully-selected wine list for pairings.

Indulge in traditional French fare at this Provence-inspired restaurant – think saffron mussels, filet de boeuf and mille-feuille – and head for the dedicated quiet area for extra tranquillity.

With dishes designed by Michelin-starred chef Ettore Botrini, this elegant Italian spot serves pizzas, pastas and seafood dishes with a glittering Aegean backdrop.

Tuck into Thai, Chinese and Indian cuisine at this colourful Asian restaurant, with an al fresco balcony overlooking the ocean.

With a menu created by Michelin-starred chef Lefteris Lazarou, this beachfront restaurant serves traditional Greek dishes with a contemporary twist; try the pork souvlaki or crispy sea bream fillet with a side of ocean view.

It’s hard to beat the combination of exceptional views and tantalising food at Ouzo, with contemporary Greek dishes designed by Michelin-starred chef Lefteris Lazarou.

The company’s Ikos Green Programme focuses on energy efficiency, renewable energy use, water conservation, waste minimisation and sustainable procurement, with policies and targets in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Over 56% of products currently used at the resorts are sourced locally or domestically from individual farmers, small businesses and cooperatives in Greece. Through partnering with local restaurants under the Dine Out programme, local businesses receive training and support from the company.

These are run by well-known former professional players are are the perfect holiday activity for budding footballers. Please call us for more details about dates.
