A brand new hotel from the leading luxury Ikos brand, the Ikos Aria is a dazzling 5-star hotel every bit as beautiful as the island of Kos it resides on. Elegant, stylish, and blessed with its own private beach, the IKOS Aria has a host of impressive facilities including top restaurants, an onsite spa, and 47 verdant acres of land.
There are five pools on the grounds with separate spa and adults’ options, while the 850-metre beach is a sandy delight with complimentary sun loungers and parasols. Dining at the new hotel is extensive and varied with eight restaurants to choose from – offering modern Greek cuisine, pan-Asian fare, and a host of international specialities prepared by Michelin-starred chefs. Accompanying the restaurants, there are seven bars at the Ikos Aria both indoors and outside in the lavish gardens. The bars serve an array of cocktails, soft drinks, and specially selected wines from the Ikos collection. Rooms are served by 24-hour room service and have modern amenities throughout.
From far-reaching stretches of serene coastline to a mess of restaurants and tavernas serving amazing Greek food, Kos is a colourful live canvas that adorns the Mediterranean. On Kos, you can bathe in the sun, take a dive in the clear waters and get involved with various water sports such as windsurfing, paddle-boarding and even banana boating. Once, you’ve soaked up sufficient sun and seaside vibes, you can embark on your exploration of the rest of the island. Start at the statue of the father of modern medicine, Hippocrates, situated under the tree where he is supposed to have taught his pupils. The Castle of the Knights is a coastal fortress built by crusaders in the 14th century as a defence against the Ottoman Empire and is a testament to the island’s rich history. Visit the ancient Greek ruins of Asklepion, the traditional windmills, as well as numerous other remnants of temples, theatres and monuments. Alternatively, take a tour of the hot springs in the southeast, or explore the island’s peaks that run along the southern coast with their charming mountain villages.
