An exceptional resort whereby five stars truly aren’t enough, the incredible Ikos Andalusia is the first hotel of the Ikos chain to be located outside of Greece. Situated in the heart of Andalucía, the resort is close by to Costa del Sol’s Marbella, an area known for its vibrant nightlife and Ikos Andalusia provides a heavenly dose of tranquillity while also not being too far from the action.
The hotel is located on the sands of a beautiful beach, making it the perfect spot to catch a tan or discover your inner adventurer with a range of watersports. Moreover, the accommodation options are truly out of this world, offering stunning views of the gardens, the pool or the Mediterranean Sea, and some even coming with your very own private pool for the height of luxury.
Ikos Andalusia is home to one main Mediterranean restaurant and six incredible á la carte restaurants serving a range of cuisines, all of which come with menus curated by Michelin-starred chefs. There are a number of both indoor and outdoor swimming pools with sunbeds and umbrellas as well as designated areas for children and adult-only quiet zones. Additionally, the hotel has a brilliant spa while there are also endless activities on offer including tennis, beach volleyball, mountain biking, Zumba and so much more.
Ikos Andalusia is located in Marbella, a place known for vibrant nightlife and a host of amazing bars and restaurants, but there is so much more to do too. The Costa del Sol region is renowned for having some great beaches and a trip to at least one of them is a must when in Marbella. There are numerous beaches found within a 20-kilometre radius and many of them come with a lively promenade of chiringuitos – which are quirky little beach bars.
Marbella’s picturesque Old Town is another place you can’t miss. Found in the centre of the resort, it’s a great alternative look at a place, which is usually more concerned with modernity. Opposite the Old Town, you will find Alameda Park – a gorgeous expanse of natural scenery that is perfect for an afternoon stroll. Shopaholics can indulge at the El Corte Ingles department store or in Puerto Banus, which has a number of flagship brands such as Louis Vuitton, Armani and Versace.
