    Our opinion

    Following the Ikos Infinite Lifestyle ethos, Ikos Olivia offers an incredible range of restaurants, accommodation, and sports.

    Hotel description

    The five-star Ikos Olivia resort is set in the Halkidiki region of Greece, known for its natural beauty and stunning seascapes. The Ikos Infinite Lifestyle ensures that guests at Ikos Olivia experience the same level of luxury service as at all other Ikos resorts, with beautiful, stylish guestrooms and suites, professional sports facilities, including scuba diving and a Football Academy, and the renowned Ikos Spa by French beauty expert Anne Semonin. The resort itself is situated on 22 acres of manicured grounds, including 450m of private idyllic golden beach. The resort resembles a village, with many self-contained buildings that cultivate the sense of privacy and peacefulness that our clients have always valued. Dotted between these smaller buildings are seven swimming pools, including the large main pool, accompanied by a smaller children-only pool, and the 967m-squared lagoon-style beach pool with swim-up bar. The beach itself also features an adults-only area, as well as a sunbed service that allows guests to order drinks and snacks straight to their sunbed. In each of the restaurants, there is a key cuisine at the centre of the menu, be it Greek, Italian, French, or Asian. Michelin-starred chefs have designed the menus themselves, with a range of delicious local produce available. Dinner is made complete by Cava, the wine collection that has been specially curated to reflect the flavours offered in the restaurants. The accommodation itself promises phenomenal views, no matter the category, with beautiful lush countryside in one direction and the sea in the other. The style of each room is kept very clean and simple, with a colour palette of blues, white, and silver. Plush headboards and soft furnishings complete the feeling of indulgent luxury, while stylish lamps and mirrors accentuate the contemporary ‘Ikos’ feel. Higher category rooms have ‘homely’ touches, such as furnished private gardens and poolsides. The Ikos Olivia is a resort well-suited to both families and couples due to the sheer variety available. Expressions would recommend it to clients looking for all-inclusive luxury during the spring, summer, or autumn in Europe.
