Why Ikos Resorts offers the ultimate family all-inclusive getaway
Award-winning Ikos Resorts have revolutionised the all-inclusive family holiday across the Mediterranean. Its signature Infinite Lifestyle promises a peerless experience with touches such as Michelin-starred menus, beach and poolside waiter service, OFSTED-standard kids clubs, free beach childcare, Anne Sémonin spa treatments and the most fun you’ve ever had as a family!
The lauded brand made its stunning debut with two properties in Halkidiki, Ikos Olivia and Ikos Oceania, and swiftly added Ikos Dassia in Corfu in 2018. This year sees the launch of Ikos Aria on the Greek island of Kos, followed in 2020 by Ikos Andulsia in Spain.
The gorgeous all-inclusive, five-star Ikos Aria opens its door this May, bringing families an enticing blend of contemporary style and traditional hospitality. Located on the southwest coast of Kos, the resort will feature 373 elegantly designed rooms, all with panoramic views across the Aegean Sea, meaning that you can connect with nature from the second you wake up.
When it comes to families, Ikos is dedicated to helping you make the most of your time together. There are numerous heated indoor and outdoor pools, including dedicated family ones and paddling splash pools for the really little travellers. You’ll be able to start your day right with pilates or yoga, have use of the tennis, basketball and badminton courts, and be able to take part in canoeing, windsurfing and more. And all of it’s complementary, you only pay for optional additional extras such as specialist lessons and motorised watersports.
The OFSTED-standard creche, kids club and Teen Club caters for children from four months to 17 years old. They include a programme of sports and activities both indoors and out – including the popular WK Football Academy. Meanwhile you can head to the spa to enjoy a heated pool with Jacuzzi, a thermal suite with steam room and sauna, a hairdressing salon, and a beauty corner with nail salon. For something even more special, book yourselves in for indulgent treatments – from massages to facials – in private treatment rooms, including a couples suite.
If it’s beach you’re dreaming off, Ikos Aria delivers – this is Greece after all. Spend your days enjoying the exclusive 850m stretch of golden, sandy Kefalos beach reserved for hotel guests with sunlounger-side waiter service and complimentary beach childcare. Spoil yourselves with a delicious dinner at the resort with à-la-carte menus curated by Michelin-starred chefs.
Families can explore further afield with a ‘Mini Drive Adventure’ – the complimentary use of a Mini Cooper to explore the island for a day. Taking all-inclusive to an all new level, there’s also the innovative ‘Dine Out’ experience that allows guests to dine at carefully selected, local restaurants across Kos for free as part of their all-inclusive package.
