Full accommodation information

A fabulous luxury resort on the delightful Dodecanese island of Kos, Ikos Aria is the perfect Greek escape.

This expansive resort comprises three separate areas – an elegant main building, a dedicated bungalow suite area and an ultra-exclusive Deluxe Collection area – which will be spread over 47 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens overlooking the soft sands of exclusive Kefalos beach.

Not your usual all-inclusive resort, Ikos Aria offers a so-called Infinite Lifestyle, allowing you to enjoy world-class menus, luxury facilities, top-end spirits, a variety of quality wines and 24-hour room service, all included in your stay. 

Two main pools are joined by an adults-only pool, a spa pool and a pool exclusively for Deluxe Collection accommodation guests, guaranteeing plenty of space to soak up the island sunshine. The resort spa, meanwhile, houses tranquil private treatment rooms, in which you can enjoy a range of luxurious treatments using premium Anne Sémonin products, alongside a fitness studio, beauty corner, steam room and sauna.

A huge variety of activities are offered complimentary with your stay – including tennis, mountain biking, canoeing, Pilates, aerobics, yoga, windsurfing and more! For an additional charge, why not enjoy scuba diving, water skiing or catamaran cruising.

Children are wonderfully catered for here, the resort housing the Heroes Creche (for little ones aged four months to four years), the Heroes Kids Club for those between four and 12 years, and a Teen Club, catering to older children aged 13 to 17 years old. Each offers great facilities and a programme of excellent, age-appropriate activities - including outdoor games, watersports, arts and crafts, and cookery workshops. In addition, kids’ menus and a selection of other children and baby amenities are available on request.

374 stunning rooms and suites are spread across Ikos Aria’s 47 acres, offering luxurious interiors, fantastic amenities and breathtaking views over the Aegean Sea. Smart TVs, a Nespresso machine, a daily-stocked mini-bar and premium toiletries can be expected in each room. Meanwhile, the Deluxe collection of accommodation offers premium service and exclusive benefits – including designated beach areas, food and drink upgrades, a Deluxe Collection-only swimming pool, a bottle of Taittinger champagne, two complimentary spa treatments and impeccable, personal service from the dedicated Ikos Deluxe Collection Managers.
