Ikos Olivia

Pure relaxation and luxury are what comes to mind when thinking of Ikos Olivia.

Perched on Halkidiki, this beachfront paradise offers so much for couples and families alike…

Facilities & Activities

The Ikos definition of All inclusive really does mean everything is included!  The activities are many, head to the tennis, basketball or badminton courts, or join in a game of volleyball or soccer on the beach.  Chill out with some yoga or take to the pool for a spot of water polo, aqua aerobics or an introductory dive lesson.  Those with a more natural affinity with the sea can head off on a canoe, pedalo or top up their windsurfing skills.

The beautiful resort is scattered with pools equally good for relaxing around.  The lagoon pool has a convenient swim up bar perfect for an afternoon drink, whilst the large main pool offers nearby children and baby paddling pools and those staying in a Deluxe Room also have access to a stunning separate pool. If you are more of a beach person, find yourself a comfy sunbed along the 450 metre golden beach overlooking the Med and waiters will quickly be over to assist if you would like something off the lunch menu or a refreshing drink, this service is also available at all pools.

For pure relaxation the Ikos Spa is the place to be, guests are welcome to use the indoor and outdoor heated swimming pool. Those staying in a Deluxe Room can also enjoy 2 complimentary neck and back treatments per room while other guests can read the extensive spa menu and choose one of the soothing treatments for an additional cost.

The dining options at Ikos Olivia are exceptional, head to beachfront Greek restaurant Ouzo for a relaxed atmosphere by day and an intimate Michelin star fine dining experience by night. Ouzo serves classic Greek cuisine with a modern twist. For a taste of Asia, the menu at Anaya cleverly incorporates an array of culinary influences from China, Thailand and India.  Combined with contemporary Asian décor you will feel like you’ve been transported to an elegant restaurant in the heart of Bangkok!
