Ikos Resorts continues to grow, with the group’s first hotel outside Greece, opened in Spain this May
Between the Spanish mountains and Mediterranean Sea, the five-star Ikos Andalusia hotel opened its doors to guests for the first time today, marking the fifth Ikos Resorts property and the first outside Greece. With 411 rooms, 4,000m2 of swimming pools and extensive gardens, the highly anticipated new opening promises guests an immersion in outstanding service, exceptional cuisine and thoughtful local initiatives.
Acknowledged in TripAdvisor’s 2020 awards as the best all-inclusive resorts in the world*, Ikos Resorts invested an impressive 180 million euros to thoughtfully design the new beachfront hotel, creating a peaceful oasis on the Costa del Sol. The elegant resort has a timeless style that fosters both serenity and sophistication. The brainchild of international design group Studio Gronda, Ikos Andalusia combines classic Spanish architecture with the tropical feel of a glamorous coastal resort.
“Luis Herault, CEO of Ikos Iberia has stated: “We are excited to receive our guests with the opening of Ikos Andalusia. We are ready to inaugurate the summer season and celebrate the resumption of tourist activity. Since we announced the arrival of our first hotel in Spain, we have been working to bring the five-star quality service that characterises us to the Costa del Sol, the Ikos Infinite Lifestyle experience. Our concept redefines the all-inclusive luxury offer and has already been recognised by TripAdvisor as number 1 in the world in the Luxury All-Inclusive category. The company continues to explore growth opportunities in Spain, a key region for us, as well as Portugal, where we plan to open our first resort very soon”
Local Discovery: Guests of the new hotel will be encouraged to discover the local area, with complimentary use of a MINI car for the day, tickets to the best museums in Malaga or free green passes for golfers at the exclusive Los Naranjos Golf Club all included in their stay. The hotel also offers the pioneering Ikos Dine Out initiative, allowing foodies to enjoy meals at some of the best restaurants across Marbella and Estepona, all within their all-inclusive experience.
Gourmet Hospitality: In addition to the Dine Out opportunities, guests of Ikos Andalusia will be spoiled for choice with seven restaurants at the resort. These include one Mediterranean buffet and six à la carte menus curated by Michelin-starred chefs and ranging from modern Greek, classic Italian, Asian/Oriental, Provencal, and authentic Spanish. All meals will be complemented with an extensive choice of 300 local and international wines selected by the Ikos Sommelier. Cocktail lovers will be impressed to find six bars serving drinks curated by Mariam Beke, the award-winning mixologist and owner of the acclaimed Gibson Bar in Shoreditch.
Family Benefits: With two complimentary kids’ clubs offering a range of activities including arts and crafts, sports, cooking and water sports and 24-hour room service, parents will be free to enjoy all the resort has to offer with total peace of mind. Be that the Ikos Spa by Anne Sémonin Paris (with nine private treatment rooms), one of the eight indoor and outdoor pools, on-site hairdressing salon or fitness studio with state-of-the-art equipment.
Ikos Andalusia is ideally located on Playa de Guadalmansa, just 55-minutes from Malaga airport, 20-minutes from the cosmopolitan centre of Marbella and 15 minutes from the historic town of Estepona. Bringing the group’s award-winning, all-inclusive concept to Spain, Ikos Andalusia offers a carefree escape where every whim is catered for.
