This luxury resort has a vibrant atmosphere and redefines all inclusive as ‘Infinite Lifestyle’.
The IKOS Olivia has a fabulous location, in 22 acres of beachfront landscaped gardens on the pretty Halkidiki peninsula. With an all-inclusive package that includes meals prepared by Michelin-starred chefs, room service, a Dine Out experience at a local restaurant and non-motorised watersports, it brings the concept of affordable luxury to Halkidiki.
There’s plenty going on here, with everything from watersports to mountain biking. Children are well looked after with their own pool and playground, as well as dedicated kids’ meals at all restaurants – it’s no wonder that IKOS Olivia is popular with families. Dining is an exciting venture here too; there are buffet and à la carte options at restaurants overseen by Michelin-starred chefs. Three of the resort’s restaurants are open throughout the day, serving Mediterranean, traditional Greek and French fare, while at dinner there’s the choice of Italian and Asian cuisine too. There's also round-the-clock complimentary room service. Wine lovers will be pleased to learn that the Cava wine cellar stocks local and international labels, and for a taste of local flavours the innovative Ikos Dine Out service invites guests to dine out in a restaurant in the nearby coastal village of Gerakini.
Contemporary rooms such as the Promo Double Rooms and the larger Superior Double Rooms are located in the main building, while the Double Bungalow Garden View Rooms are housed in bungalows. They all have a balcony or terrace with garden or sea views. Bungalow Suites are slightly larger, with a private garden or balcony.
If you choose a Deluxe Collection suite you'll receive a host of added extra benefits. It begins from the moment you enter your suite where a bottle of Taittinger Champange will be waiting for you to toast to your holiday. There's also an unpacking service and an upgraded minibar. You can relax with a neck and back massage (two per room per stay) and enjoy a romantic monent together with a dinner on the beach that's chosen from a menu created by a Michelin-starred chef. Other fantastic additions include the use of an exclusive shared deluxe pool and a dedicated beach area as well as the services of a deluxe concierge service.
