Ikos Andalusia opens to guests
Ikos Resorts’ first property outside of Greece officially opened its doors today (May 17).
Ikos Andalusia is located on Playa de Guadalmansa in Spain’s Costa del Sol, 55 minutes from Malaga airport and 20 minutes from the centre Marbella.
Ikos Resorts reportedly spent €180 million renovating the former Princess Hotel property, which now features 411 rooms, seven restaurants, six bars, several pools and a spa.
The beachfront hotel also features Ikos Resorts' signature all-inclusive offering, including a la carte menus, a choice of 300 wine labels, beach waiter service, kids’ clubs and 24-hour room service.
The use of a Mini Car for one day, a Dine Out initiative for local restaurants, museum tickets and golf passes are also included as part of the stay.
The hotel is the fifth property in Ikos Resorts' portfolio, joining Ikos Oceania and Ikos Olivia in Halkidiki, Ikos Aria in Kos and Ikos Dassia in Corfu.
Chief executive of Ikos Iberia, Luis Herault, said: “We are excited to receive our guests with the opening of Ikos Andalusia. We are ready to inaugurate the summer season and celebrate the resumption of tourist activity.
“Since we announced the arrival of our first hotel in Spain, we have been working to bring the five-star quality service that characterises us to the Costa del Sol, the Ikos Infinite Lifestyle experience.
“Our concept redefines the all-inclusive luxury offer and has already been recognised by TripAdvisor as number one in the world in the Luxury All-Inclusive category. The company continues to explore growth opportunities in Spain, a key region for us, as well as Portugal, where we plan to open our first resort very soon.”
Ikos Andalusia opened on the same day that International travel resumed in the UK, however Spain is currently on the UK’s amber list, meaning those returning from the destination have to quarantine at home for 10 days.
