Ikos Olivia, Halkidiki | Designer Travel

I visited the Ikos Olivia shortly after opening and was very impressed with the Hotel.   Set in 22 acres of evergreen landscape with beautiful olive trees and a 450m long beach, it is definitely a hotel I will be returning to.

There are 3 outdoor pools to choose from plus a private pool for deluxe guests and an indoor pool with splash hour for the children.  All have waiter service throughout the day so you can relax without having to get up for drinks.  The beach is reserved for hotel guests only and also has a food and drink service with complimentary sunbeds and umbrellas.

The hotel has 4 restaurants offering a la carte menus from Greek, Mediterranean, Pan Asian, Italian and French cuisine including the main buffet restaurant.  There is a Greek Taverna just a short walk from the hotel which is also included in the all inclusive package.  You have a huge choice of drinks to chose from including the extensive wine and champagne cellar

Moving on to the rooms, there are 136 bedrooms and junior suites along with 159 bungalow suites.  The promo double rooms and bungalows are the lead in room type and are 25 square metres which is ample room for 2 adults. We then progress to Superior doubles, Junior bungalow suites, Family junior suites, Panorama junior suites, 1 bedroom bungalow suites with or without a private pool and deluxe 2 bedroom suites with private pool.  All are of a high spec and very spacious for families.  I stayed in a 1 bedroom bungalow suite and was amazed at how much room there was and 2 patio doors to the garden terrace.

Finally there is a beautiful spa with 6 treatment rooms, kids club and creche (chargeable for the under 4’s), entertainment program, land and water sports (some are chargeable)

I have since had clients stay here and all have had a fantastic time and enjoyed the whole experience.
