Hotel Ikos Andalusia has just opened in Estepona, bringing some of the world’s finest resort accommodation to the Costa del Sol. Sitting on a prime spot of the beach on the New Golden Mile in Estepona, this 5-star hotel takes the concept of a luxury holiday to a whole new level.

As we all know, location is the first and foremost consideration for real estate. And Ikos Andalusia has chosen its spot very well. The 21-acre site has a frontline beach position on the New Golden Mile in Estepona. It joins several iconic property developments on this part of the Costa del Sol.
The resort sits on the Playa de Guadalmansa next to the Saladillo and Los Granados beaches. Estepona, Marbella and Puerto Banús are just 10 minutes’ drive away. And Ikos Andalucia is equidistant between Malaga and Gibraltar airports.
This part of the Costa del Sol also enjoys panoramic views across the Mediterranean to Gibraltar and the mountains in Morocco. (All rooms in the resort have these views.) And behind you are the majestic mountain ranges in Estepona and Marbella.

Ikos Andalusia is the first of the Ikos brand resorts in Spain and also the first 5-star all-inclusive resort in the country. And as with everything at this resort in Estepona, Ikos Andalusia takes the all-inclusive concept to new heights.
For example, you’ll find a bottle of Taittinger in your room; you’ll dine at restaurants offering the world’s best cuisine; you’ll enjoy all kinds of activities including a luxury spa and windsurf; and your children will take part in possibly the best kids’ clubs in Spain.
This part of the Costa del Sol does luxury living very well. The new resort joins other world-class hotels on the Costa del Sol. In Estepona, they include Kempinski Hotel Bahia, Senator Banús Spa and Hotel Las Dunas. While nearby are Villa Padierna Palace, Marbella Club and Hotel Puente Romano. All have 5-star GL status.
It also forms part of some of the most luxurious real estate in Spain. The so-called Golden Triangle of Estepona, Benahavis and Marbella includes the finest homes in Andalusia incorporating the best in high-end architectural design, landscaping and quality finishes.
Ikos Andalusia has a modern design with a nod to the classic architecture found in Greece (Ikos Resorts’ home country). The lofty ceilings rise very high in the communal areas and natural materials, particularly wood, take centre stage.
All spaces including the 411 rooms and suites aim to make the Mediterranean views and light the true protagonists. And as with all the best properties on the Costa del Sol, they do it very well.
Discover the same modern Mediterranean feel in these properties.
In keeping with its luxe standing, Ikos Andalusia has sumptuous surroundings. They include Mediterranean gardens complete with ancient olive trees and palm avenues, meditation pools and water features.
Guests have a choice of no less than seven pools, each with a different theme and vibe. And of course, the Mediterranean is on the very doorstep.
Seven would seem to be a lucky number at Ikos Andalusia because the resort has that number of restaurants onsite. The all-inclusive dining experiences are high-end and Michelin-star chefs have designed the menus at several.
Anthony Jehanno, Ettore Botini and Lefteris Lazarou are three examples – you can try their creations at the Provence, Fresco and Ouzo restaurants respectively. Another award-winning chef, Chef Thiou, has put her name to Thai-Asian menu at Anaya.
Or there’s the beach club restaurant serving international food and as you’d expect, fresh fish caught locally. And if you fancy venturing further afield, your all-inclusive room rate also allows you to dine at nearby restaurants such as Besaya Beach and Tikitano.
And then there’s the bar. Over 300 wines make up the Ikos Andalusia list while the bar houses just about any spirit and liquor you can think of. The futuristic bar area showcases whiskies, gins and vodkas from the world over and the cocktail menu comes with the signature of Marian Beke, the award-winning bartender at The Gibson in London.

Ikos Andalusia also bring a touch of luxury to the extras. In-room amenities are from the Anne Sémonin Paris range (as is the Spa). The kids’ clubs cater for all ages from tots to teens. Plus there’s a football academy.
Prime real estate on the Costa del Sol
Ikos Resorts have invested €180 million in the creation of their first all-inclusive resort in Spain. And Ikos Andalusia is just one example of the big draw of the Costa del Sol for real estate investment.
It also shows the appeal of real estate with the highest specifications. The Costa del Sol luxury property market is currently experiencing huge interest from both private buyers and corporate investors. And Ikos Andalusia is proof of the appetite in this part of southern Spain.
