Ikos Resorts is expanding its luxury all-inclusive offering with a second property on Corfu Island, scheduled to open in May 2023.
The exclusive new Ikos Odisia promises a sophisticated beachfront escape, where architecture and aesthetics blend harmoniously with nature, embodying the brand’s signature luxury essence.
The second Ikos to open on the Greek island sits in an iconic location, protected in a secluded bay across from the brand’s first property on the island, Ikos Dassia. The new Ikos Odisia is gracefully elevated for dramatic views and landscaped vistas across the Ionian Sea.
Beautifully designed by Nimand Architects, the new beachfront resort boasts 395 rooms, suites, bungalows, and villas, each thoughtfully designed for couples and families of all sizes.
Set across 60 acres and blending harmoniously into the lush natural surroundings, Ikos Odisia will welcome guests to elegant ambience on the water’s edge. The five-star property will welcome the outdoors in, taking full advantage of the unspoiled nature surrounding the resort.
High end guests can opt for the exclusive Deluxe Collection Suites in an unrivalled area of the resort with tailored pre-arrival planning via a personal concierge and a range of benefits.
Ikos Odisia will have five a la carte restaurants, with menus created by Michelin-star chefs offering flavours from Greece, Italy, Peru and Asia, as well as a Mediterranean buffet-style restaurant. Creative signature cocktails and a choice of 300 international and local wines will be served by Ikos sommeliers and expert mixologists at the hotel’s indoor and outdoor bars, which offer a venue for every occasion- from laid-back beach bars to elegant live music settings.
Taking full advantage of the resort’s elevated location, Ikos Odisia’s exclusive new dining venue, The View Lounge, welcomes guests to picturesque views across the Ionian, and will serve cocktails, light snacks, and a full dinner menu celebrating a fusion of Peruvian cuisine.
The resort will offer 10 heated outdoor and indoor pools, including kids and adults-only pools, as well as a 420 m white sandy beach. Activity options include a state-of-the-art fitness centre and sports facilities and activities from tennis to canoeing, mountain biking or windsurfing. The Ikos Spa offers unrivalled views of the Ionian Sea, the ideal backdrop for a luxurious signature treatment, with beauty products by Anne Semonin Paris.
The resort will house a complementary kids’ clubs for children and teens aged four to 17, offering activities including arts and crafts, sports, cooking, and science. Guests with babies and toddlers will be able to take advantage of the Heroes Crèche and babysitting services, with professional childcare available.
As with all Ikos properties, Ikos Odisia will support the local community to have a positive impact on Corfu island’s economy and the destination overall. The resort will collaborate with local suppliers and generate 700 new jobs, with at least half the positions filled by locals. The resort will also establish sustainable hotel operations under the Ikos Green programme, including being carbon neutral and implementing zero waste initiatives.
