The warm waters of the Toroneos Gulf lap the idyllic beaches of southern Halkidiki, where Ikos Resorts have created an utterly contemporary resort offering Greek hospitality at its best. Launched in May 2015, spacious guest rooms and suites brim with understated sophistication, set in twenty two acres of immaculately tended grounds. Luxury one and two bedroom suites in low-rise bungalows look out over the Aegean sea, each with a private pool, garden or balcony. No fewer than six bars and four à la carte restaurants provide a surfeit of dining options including Greek, French, Italian and Asian – all with menus overseen by Michelin-starred chefs. The Dine-Out concept offers eating out in a choice of specially selected venues, 24 hour room service, international spirits in the minibar and waiter service at the pools and beach. Indoor and outdoor pools are complemented by a luxurious spa, tennis, biking and watersports, with children sure to have a whale of a time in the multi-lingual Heroes Kids’ Club.
All children from tots to teens are well considered at this contemporary resort, with the crèche, Kids' and Teens' Clubs open every day. Families seeking active pursuits can make use of the free introductory dive lesson or try windsurfing, tennis and canoeing. Spend the afternoon exploring the shoreline of the private white sandy beach or take a dip in one of the three pools, surrounded by ancient olive trees. Most menus at the fabulous eateries are created by Michelin-starred chefs offering French, Italian, Greek and Asian cuisine.
Greece is blessed with a Mediterranean climate. From mid May to mid June and mid September to October the climate is pleasant and sunshine is plentiful. July and August are hot with temperatures reaching 37°C. Winters tend to be mild in the south but much cooler in the north with an increased chance of rain.
