Ikos Andalusia wins “Newcomer Luxury All Inclusive Resort Europe”

Open since May 2021, Ikos Andalusia is the first Ikos Resorts property to launch outside of Greece on the Spanish Costa del Sol. Now, the brand-new resort celebrates its first award at this year’s Connoisseur Circle Hospitality Awards; with special recognition for “Newcomer Luxury All Inclusive Resort Europe”.

Connoisseur Circle is a luxury travel lifestyle magazine hosting prestigious awards for the international hotel industry, selected by an expert jury. With a portfolio of multi-award-winning resorts, this latest accolade for Ikos is affirmation of the unrivalled, redefined concept of all-inclusive holidays offered.

With the Ikos Infinite Lifestyle concept, a limitless luxury holiday experience is combined effortlessly with the ease and comfort of All-Inclusive. The concept includes a variety of activities and experiences at the resort, such as menus curated by Michelin Star chefs in the six à la carte restaurants, a selection of 300 international wine labels and high-quality spirits. Furthermore, guests are also encouraged to explore their chosen destination with the Mini Drive Adventure where they enjoy their own Mini for the day, dining in the finest local restaurants, and admission to local museums all included in the cost of their stay.

“We are all very excited about this valuable award for the Ikos Andalusia. This award shows how efficiently and successfully Ikos Resorts continues to grow.  Ikos Andalusia is the first hotel of our group outside Greece and brings the award-winning Infinite Lifestyle concept to Spain,” explains Oliver Braun, Regional Director of Sales & Marketing (DACH)

While Ikos Andalusia is the newest hotel in the Ikos Resorts portfolio, this award is a timely message to our guests and employees that the standard of service and approach to carefree luxury holidays is of utmost importance to us, right from the start. With Private balconies, gardens and pools abound at Ikos Andalusia, over 400 contemporary rooms and suites take style, luxury and comfort to fabulous new levels, while the distinct Ikos luxury touches accompany every guest journey.

IKOS ANDALUSIA OPENING POSTPONED to 2021

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 reservations@ikosresorts.com 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
CEO
IKOS IBERIA

Ikos Andalusia Opening is Postponed to the 1st of September 2020

With travel still at a standstill, we have been complying with lockdown restrictions and measures imposed by governments to protect all citizens during the novel coronavirus outbreak. Since early March, in alignment with all necessary restrictive measures across the globe, strict constraints on construction works were imposed across Spain, bringing all such work to a halt, without exceptions.

Until this measure, the construction of Ikos Andalusia, the first Ikos Resorts property to open in Spain, was moving forward ahead of schedule, ready to open its doors early this month. For the first time in the Group’s successful history of delivering luxury resorts on time, this unprecedented force majeure situation has forced us to postpone the opening of Ikos Andalusia to September 1st 2020, provided that we are by then able to ensure the safety of our guests and staff as the pandemic hopefully subsides.

We are constantly working to ensure that we meet the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to be ready to welcome you on September 1st 2020. We are also developing, in partnership with in-house and outside expert partners, an even more exacting standard of care, cleanliness and disinfection, in order to confidently offer you a safe and comfortable stay when you do visit us.
