Train with Legends in 2022

Football Escapes at Ikos Resorts

Football Escapes returns to Ikos Resorts for summer 2022 with a round-up of our all-time favourite legends. This year, Robbie Keane, Ashley Williams, Joe Cole, Anton Ferdinand, Billy Wingrove and Steve Sidwell will be among the experts hosting celebrity-led sessions at Ikos Olivia in Halkidiki, Greece and Ikos Andalusia in Spain.

Following a successful season at Ikos Andalusia in 2021, we are delighted to confirm world-class coaching sessions at Ikos Olivia from 1st-5th August 2022 and 22nd-26th August 2022. Those travelling to Ikos Andalusia will also experience the best of Football Escapes; following the special Easter session from 11th-15th April there will also be two summer courses from 25th-29th July 2022 and 15th-19th August 2022.

In these exciting five-day programmes, children will have the chance to become footballing pros with two hours of daily coaching from legendary players. Open to children aged 5-15 years old, each player will receive a full personalised Rascal kit along with a signed certificate and medal. Parents can cheer from the sidelines or spend a relaxing couple of hours by the pool, on the beach or enjoying an indulgent spa treatment, knowing children are being professionally looked after and learning from UEFA licensed coaches and ex-Premier League Ambassadors.

Ikos Resorts is delighted to announce that Ikos Olivia has taken home the award for Best All-Inclusive Hotel in the World at the 2021 TripAdvisor Annual Travellers Choice Awards. The exciting announcement, ranking Ikos Resorts as number one in the world for the fourth consecutive year, comes just as all five Ikos properties prepare to open on 17th May 2021.

Bestowed by the internationally acclaimed travel review website, the Travellers Choice Awards are based on reviews and feedback gathered from millions of travellers, and is one of the most meaningful recognitions of our guest experience.

Ikos Olivia is a family paradise, set on its own white sandy beach on the idyllic Halkidiki peninsula and surrounded by 22-acres of stunning, landscaped gardens. The resort has 142 rooms, four pools including a lagoon style pool with a swim up bar, a children’s club and crèche and a football academy.

Guests of Ikos Resorts can expect an immersive approach to each destination, whether it be through Ikos’ innovative ‘Dine Out’ experience allowing guests to dine at local Greek restaurants as part of their stay, or the Mini Drive Adventure giving guests complimentary use of a MINI Cooper for one full day of their stay in order to explore the local area. Those who stay with us can enjoy à la carte menus curated by Michelin starred chefs, 300 local and international wines selected by the Ikos Sommelier, beach waiter service, 24-hour room service, premium branded spirits in the mini bars, kids’ clubs and more, all as part of the all-inclusive offering.

Ikos Resorts is expanding its portfolio with the launch of its first property in Spain and fifth property in the world on 17th May 2021, Ikos Andalusia. The new hotel will reflect Ikos Resorts’ award-winning concept, allowing guests to experience the convenience and affordability of an all-inclusive offering paired with total indulgence. It will feature 411 elegantly appointed rooms, with private balconies, gardens, individual pools and panoramic sea views. Gastronomy highlights include an eclectic collection of cocktails created by Marian Beke, world renowned award-winning mixologist and owner of the acclaimed Gibson bar in Shoreditch.

All five properties will open under an all-tested promise, which ran successfully at Ikos Resorts last season, setting the new global standard for covid-safe holidays. As part of Ikos Resorts’ Infinite Care Protocol™, the all-tested promise means that all staff members will be tested for Covid-19 prior to the resort opening and will then undergo regular rapid antigen tests. A complimentary rapid antigen test will also be offered to all non-vaccinated domestic and international guests upon arrival, while international guests will be able to book various tests on site to meet their required travel specifications before departure.

Dear Valued Guest,

As we navigate the difficult challenge the coronavirus (COVID-19) presents us with during these rapidly changing times, the wellbeing of our guests and staff remains our priority.

Until recently, pandemic conditions had reached a level where countries were able to ease lockdown procedures, allowing for travel to resume to most destinations. The demanding construction of Ikos Andalusia was completed ahead of schedule and operational preparations were finalised for the September 1st opening. The result is indeed amazing, and we were eagerly waiting to welcome our guests to this outstanding new Ikos resort. We would like to invite you to a sneak preview of the astoundingly chic new property.

Over the last few weeks, however, infections in Spain have progressively spiked, reaching the highest number of daily recorded cases since May, with the upward trend leading to growing fears of an imminent second wave. Based on the current assessment of COVID-19 increased risks, the Foreign & Commonwealth Office UK (FCO) has recently advised against all non-essential travel to mainland Spain from July 26th and has stipulated that return travel is subject to a subsequent 14-day self-isolation period. Other countries have also introduced similar restrictions and travel warnings for all the country or parts of it. In light of these recent developments, we have become increasingly concerned about the prudence of an opening so late in the season and putting our guests and staff in harm’s way. Therefore, in line with the guidance from the FCO and other national Foreign Offices, and as part of our pledge to protect the health of all those involved, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the opening of the new Ikos Andalusia from September 2020 to April 2021.

Ikos has just been awarded the title of the Best All-Inclusive Resorts in the World for another year by TripAdvisor, with Ikos Dassia in 1st place and Ikos Olivia in 2nd. We remain committed to providing our guests with premium service and travel planning flexibility during this constantly evolving situation. We have updated our policies offering a range of flexible options for rearranging your stay so that you can still go ahead with your holiday this summer.

For more information on existing or potential bookings or to cancel your booking please contact our Reservations Department directly on where our team will instantly walk you through your options.

Whenever you choose to visit us at the beautiful Ikos Andalusia, we look forward to welcoming you to the vibrant Marbella lifestyle with all our hearts and offering you the unique hospitality of Ikos Resorts.

Best regards,
Luis Herault

Ikos Resorts est maintenant ouvert avec Ikos Olivia, accueillant les clients dans un havre de vacances exclusif et sûr, tandis que l’ouverture d’Ikos Oceania a été reportée au 1er septembre jusqu’à nouvel ordre. Ikos Dassia à Corfou et Ikos Aria à Kos resteront fermés pour la saison 2020 et rouvriront en avril 2021. En raison de la réglementation des voyages en Espagne, notre nouvelle propriété Ikos Andalusia, bien qu’elle soit entièrement prête à fonctionner, ouvrira ses portes pour la première fois en avril 2021.

Alors que nous regardons vers l’avenir des voyages et des vacances à venir, nous aimerions fournir à nos clients une mise à jour sur les dates de réouverture de nos cinq hôtels de luxe tout compris pour la saison 2020.

Nous sommes ravis d’avoir déjà commencé à accueillir des invités à Ikos Olivia à Halkidiki, après avoir rouvert ses portes à partir du 1er juillet. En raison de la réglementation des voyages en Espagne, notre nouvelle propriété Ikos Andalusia, bien qu’elle soit entièrement prête à fonctionner, ouvrira ses portes pour la première fois en avril 2021, tandis que la date d’ouverture d’Ikos Oceania a été reportée au 1er septembre jusqu’à nouvel ordre. Les clients ayant réservé un séjour à Ikos Oceania sont encouragés à conserver leurs réservations, qui, si nécessaire, seront surclassées à l’Ikos Olivia à proximité sans frais supplémentaires.

En ce qui concerne le reste des propriétés d’Ikos en Grèce, face à ces temps sans précédent et à la situation de force majeure en cours, Ikos Dassia à Corfou et Ikos Aria à Kos resteront fermées pour la saison 2020 et rouvriront en Avril 2021. La décision a été prise compte tenu de la réduction des voyages en avion vers les îles grecques, ainsi que les réglementations et infrastructures locales en vigueur pour soutenir nos meilleurs protocoles de classe.

Avec nos clients restant la priorité numéro un, nous espérons que cette mise à jour donnera à chacun la tranquillité d’esprit en fournissant les dernières informations et en offrant une gamme d’options flexibles pour réorganiser leur séjour. Ikos Resorts couvrira la différence pour tout changement de vol (de la même classe et de la même compagnie aérienne) tandis que les clients ayant des réservations existantes pour Ikos Dassia et Ikos Aria en 2020 peuvent facilement réorganiser leur séjour avec nous à Ikos Olivia ou Ikos Andalusia, sans frais supplémentaires. Alternativement, ils peuvent reporter leurs vacances pour 2021.

Ikos Resorts accueille ses clients sous la protection du nouveau protocole Infinite Care Protocol ™, qui intègre les meilleures mesures de santé et de sécurité de sa catégorie telles que des tests à l’arrivée, un voyage sans contact avec les services numériques et une assistance médicale 24h / 24, le tout certifié avec le bouclier TUV Autriche Covid. Combiné avec les vastes espaces ouverts et les touches haut de gamme des stations, nous avons créé un environnement sûr pour que tous nos clients puissent profiter sans compromettre l’expérience de luxe globale.

Que ce soit en 2020 ou 2021, nous avons hâte d’accueillir à nouveau tous nos clients dans nos principaux hôtels de luxe tout compris; un monde de sécurité et de liberté avec le nouveau protocole Infinite Care en place, entouré de plus de 20 acres d’espaces élégants et aérés pour le plaisir de tous.
