Overview

The chic Ikos Aria offers a refined all-inclusive stay along the sunny south west coast of Kos. Verdant grounds occupy 47 acres, overlooking the cerulean waters of the Aegean Sea. A day’s complimentary car hire is included with each stay, giving you the opportunity to explore the island, but the hotel’s extensive on-site facilities and world-class service will also tempt you to stay within the resort, with innovative cuisine at eight remarkable restaurants, beautifully designed poolscapes and the inviting golden sands of Kefalos Beach.

Ikos Aria is situated in the small town of Kefalos with direct access to a Blue Flag beach. From the beach, you can swim or paddleboard across the shore to the nearby islet of Kastri, home to a small blue and white chapel. Spend a day travelling around the island on your MINI Drive Adventure, and journey 23 miles to Kos Town, which is known for its bustling harbour, medieval castle, museums and traditional tavernas. From here, you can visit the famous thermal springs at Agios Fokas Beach or head to Triantafyllopoulos winery to sample delicious wines, made by traditional pressing methods. Make sure to pick up your complimentary tickets for the winery and Kos Archaeological Museum at the hotel before you hit the road. At the end of the day, drive up the dramatic hillside, towards Agios Theologos, to watch the breathtaking sunset. Kos Airport lies about nine miles away from the resort.

The 374 sophisticated rooms and suites are decorated in calming, neutral shades and feature elegant pendant lighting, in addition to light wood and wicker furnishings. You can sunbathe on your own private terrace or balcony, or upgrade for your own private garden or heated pool. Some Deluxe Bungalow Suites enjoy a prime beachfront location, and all Deluxe Collection accommodation includes exclusive benefits, such as a welcome bottle of champagne, two complimentary massage treatments (per room, per stay), personal concierge service and access to a private beach area and deluxe pool.

Other facilities

The grounds are awash with lush lawns, tall palm trees and vibrant bougainvillea. You can even inspect two ancient archaeological sites on the property – excavated when the pools were built. You’ll have direct access to the sandy beachfront, and you can relax around one of five swimming pools – including two vast outdoor pools (with children’s areas), an indoor spa pool, an adult-only pool and a children’s splash pad with fountains. You can also enjoy poolside and beachside waiter service throughout the day.

To keep active, head to the state-of-the-art cardio training room and fitness studio within the spa. If you prefer more guidance, you can join one of many group fitness classes – including aqua aerobics, beginners’ yoga, Pilates or stretching. Sports enthusiasts can hit the tennis courts and play beach volleyball, while outdoor adventurers rent mountain bikes or canoe (free for 30 minutes each day). If you would like to explore the beautiful coast, you can book private boat tours and yacht rentals in resort, for a supplementary charge. Motorised water sports are available for an additional charge, too.

Children will have just as much fun as adults at the dedicated kids’ or teens’ clubs. While you relax, the kids will be well cared for by leading Worldwide Kids experts, who organise a full range of engaging, supervised activities. Indoors, children can paint t-shirts, make cookies and dance at mini discos – and outdoors they can play sports and embark on treasure hunts. The Babewatch childcare service, complimentary for 30 minutes, will keep an eye on children while their adults take a relaxing swim. There’s also a football academy, creche (for children between four months and four years old) and babysitting service – all available for an extra charge.

While the children are occupied, you can slip into the calming spa for an indulgent break. Savour some personal time with a private treatment, or book the couples suite for a soothing massage experience with your partner. The spa menu features a wide range of facials, massages and body treatments, all incorporating luxurious Anne Semonin products. Otherwise, you can unwind in the garden view pool, or detox in the steam room and sauna. 

Dining information

You will experience an exceptional culinary journey at Ikos Aria with its eight restaurants and three excellent Dine Out options. Flavours is a buffet-style restaurant that specialises in high-quality Mediterranean fare, and Seasons has a delightful a la carte menu. The restaurant’s name derives from the seasonal element of the dishes, which are made using locally sourced ingredients from sustainable producers. While Seasons is open to all for dinner, it’s exclusively for Deluxe guests at breakfast and lunch times.

At Fresco, you can savour the flavours of Italy, with dishes inspired by the Michelin-starred chef, Ettore Botrini. Anaya specialises in classic Asian cuisine by the renowned Chef Katsu, and Provence serves delightful Provencal cuisine, enhanced by the Michelin-starred chef, Anthony Jehanno. Meanwhile, the elegant Olivia restaurant promises a relaxed ambience over Spanish-themed cuisine.

Ouzo boasts an unrivalled backdrop with views across the shimmering Aegean Sea and Kastri islet. Its menu has been designed by the Michelin chef, Lefteris Lazarou, who specialises in contemporary Greek cuisine with a twist. You can also enjoy fine local cuisine at Kos restaurant, or head to one of the three local restaurants included in the Dine Out programme. This includes two traditional fish restaurants in Kos Town, and the historical Mylotopi, which houses a centuries-old windmill that still produces the restaurant’s bread today. It’s worth arriving here slightly earlier for a chance to look around the 200-year-old houses with traditional Greek interiors.

    

Additional information

You are also advised to pre-book spaces at the kids’ club, teens’ club and creche, as well as spa treatments.
