Ikos Resorts Expands its Gourmet All-Inclusive Resort Portfolio with New Opening in Andalusia
Opening in spring 2021, Ikos Andalusia Will Offer Signature Cocktails Curated by Award-Winning Mixologist Marian Beke and an Authentic Spanish Menu by Michelin Starred Chef David Ibarboure
Ikos Resorts is pleased to expand its already impressive culinary offering, with the arrival of Ikos Andalusia in spring 2021. The new resort promises a gastronomic journey with à la carte menus curated by Michelin starred chefs, eclectic cocktails by award-winning mixologists and an innovative Dine Out* concept allowing guests to enjoy local restaurants as part of their stay.
Ikos Andalusia will offer six à la carte restaurants and one Mediterranean buffet restaurant, four with menus curated by Michelin starred chefs while guests of the Deluxe Collection will enjoy a “Dinner by the sea” hosted at the Hayma Deluxe Bar. Chef David Ibarboure is a new addition to Ikos Resorts and is behind the menu for Ikos Andalusia’s Oliva restaurant, serving authentic Spanish cuisine. David has worked in multiple Michelin starred restaurants including Pierre at Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Hyde Park, where he spent three years beside Pierre Gagnaire. He obtained his first Michelin star in 2010 at his family-run BriKetenia restaurant in Southern France, specialising in Basque cuisine.
Marian Beke, world renowned award-winning mixologist and owner of The Gibson bar in Shoreditch, has created an eclectic collection of cocktails for Ikos Andalusia’s six bars. He is known for his innovative bartending techniques, esoteric ingredients, and spectacularly presented drinks.
Cuisine will range from modern Greek, classic and contemporary Italian, Asian/Oriental, Provencal, and authentic Spanish. All meals will be complemented with an extensive choice of 300 local and international wines selected by the Ikos Sommelier. Six bars will be located around the resort’s lush gardens and pools serving cocktails prepared by award-winning Ikos mixologists, using branded international and local spirits.
In the name of Local Discovery and as part of the all-inclusive stay, guests will be encouraged to explore a range of foodie hotspots across Marbella and Estepona with the resort’s Dine Out* experience. This includes experiencing Marbella’s Golden Mile with its vast selection of fine-dining restaurants, sampling authentic restaurants across Estepona’s beachfront taking in the stunning sea views, and meandering through the picturesque alleys of Estepona Old Town to dine at charming restaurants largely hidden away from the typical tourist trail.
Ikos Andalusia will open with Ikos Resorts’ Infinite Care Protocol in place, incorporating stringent health & safety measures. The best-in-class Infinite Care Protocol™ welcomes guests to a world of freedom & safety, combined with onsite testing & a wealth of flexible booking policies for guest peace of mind.
