Luxury bespoke holidays to Ikos Olivia Halkidiki

The five-star Ikos Olivia resort is set in the Halkidiki region of Greece, known for its natural beauty and stunning seascapes. The Ikos Infinite Lifestyle ensures that guests at Ikos Olivia experience the same level of luxury service as at all other Ikos resorts, with beautiful, stylish guestrooms and suites, professional sports facilities, including scuba diving and a Football Academy, and the renowned Ikos Spa by French beauty expert Anne Semonin. The resort itself is situated on 22 acres of manicured grounds, including 450m of private idyllic golden beach. The resort resembles a village, with many self-contained buildings that cultivate the sense of privacy and peacefulness that our clients have always valued. Dotted between these smaller buildings are seven swimming pools, including the large main pool, accompanied by a smaller children-only pool, and the 967m-squared lagoon-style beach pool with swim-up bar. The beach itself also features an adults-only area, as well as a sunbed service that allows guests to order drinks and snacks straight to their sunbed. In each of the restaurants, there is a key cuisine at the centre of the menu, be it Greek, Italian, French, or Asian. Michelin-starred chefs have designed the menus themselves, with a range of delicious local produce available. Dinner is made complete by Cava, the wine collection that has been specially curated to reflect the flavours offered in the restaurants. The accommodation itself promises phenomenal views, no matter the category, with beautiful lush countryside in one direction and the sea in the other. The style of each room is kept very clean and simple, with a colour palette of blues, white, and silver. Plush headboards and soft furnishings complete the feeling of indulgent luxury, while stylish lamps and mirrors accentuate the contemporary 'Ikos' feel. Higher category rooms have 'homely' touches, such as furnished private gardens and poolsides. The Ikos Olivia is a resort well-suited to both families and couples due to the sheer variety available. Expressions would recommend it to clients looking for all-inclusive luxury during the spring, summer, or autumn in Europe.

About Greece

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Greece is ideal for any traveller looking to experience the diversity and splendour of this historic country. With 166 inhabited islands, a history spanning millennia of civilisation, distinctive and rustic cuisine often enjoyed al fresco with taverna-views out over the sea, as well as some of the most spectacular beaches in Europe, Greece offers a fantastic holiday for all tastes and budgets. The sum of an extraordinary diversity of parts, Greece has played host to countless empires, and the country today is fair littered with Roman ruins and Byzantine churches, Venetian fortresses and Frankish castles. Its music, food and even language are hugely influence by the Ottoman Empire’s 400-year rule. Scattered far and wide across the Aegean and Ionian Seas, the difficulty with Greece is in deciding which bit to visit. From the rugged hillsides of Crete to the long, wide beaches of Kefalonia, from the dramatic coastline of the Peloponnese to the ancient villages and tiny islands of the Dodecanese and Cyclades, Greece is so many different holidays rolled into one, endlessly multi-faceted country. Whether you just want to fly and flop or explore ancient ruins, whether you’re looking for water sports and nightlife, or wanting to hike between ancient villages, the famously friendly Greeks will be sure to have their welcome mat out for you.

Highlights of Greece

The ancient sites of Athens, with the Acropolis merely the most famous; Halkidiki, three beautiful peninsulas stretching out into the Northern Aegean, dominated by Mount Athos, with volcanoes, beaches and monasteries; Pelios peninsula, well-known to Athenians, little visited by tourists, criss-crossed by ancient mule tracks, with ancient villages, fabulous remote beaches; the Peloponnese, Greece at its ancient (Agamemnon’s Palace at Mycenae and Temple of Apollo at Corinth) and modern (west coast beaches) best; Kos, with beautiful powder-soft beaches sandwiched between verdant interior and turquoise sea; Santorini, perhaps the most iconic island of all, with famous blue-domed churches, white-washed villages and cobalt bays; Corfu’s wonderful old town; Hydra, fantastically scenic, with tiers of stone mansions cascading down towards a perfect horseshoe harbour; Patmos, where St John wrote the Book of Revelations, now a laid-back artistic hang-out; the extraordinarily atmospheric Delphi; Greece’s fascinating second city Thessaloniki; Meteora, one of Greece’s most spectacular sites, with clifftop monasteries overlooking the sea; take a rack-and-pinion train journey through the stunning Vouraikos Gorge to Kalavryta; lobster tavernas of the Fourni islands, a wonderful archipelago with gently shelving islands and hidden coves; the national marine park of Alonnisos, superb snorkelling; turtles on Zakynthos; Ikaria’s bizarre rock formations; spring and autumn migrations, when the cliffs of Lesvos swarm with birds; semi-tropical Samos and pine-scented Thasos with super beaches; tiny, hidden islands of Inousses, Fourni and Psara.

Travelling around Greece & the Greek islands

Greece is an easy place to travel around thanks to a comprehensive public transport system. Buses are the mainstay of land transport, with a network that reaches out to the smallest villages. Trains are a good alternative, where available. To most visitors, though, travelling in Greece means island-hopping on the multitude of ferries that crisscross the Adriatic and the Aegean. If you’re in a hurry, Greece also has an extensive domestic air network. While exasperating ferry schedules make island-hopping here a challenge, the individual character of each island more than makes up for the effort.

Facts in brief

Airport Greece has 16 international airports, but only those in Athens, Thessaloniki, Rhodes and Iraklio (Crete) take scheduled flights; the other 12, scattered across the islands, are served by a variety of UK low-cost and charter airlines.
