Less than 25 minutes away from Dassia, the historic Corfu Town is known for its churches, castles, cobbled streets and pretty harbour. Venetian architecture and Ottoman era artifacts dot the town's winding lanes, which, lined with bars, restaurants and boutiques, beg to be explored. A shuttle service from the hotel is available - but go early and avoid weekends, so as not to be trailing the cruise ship crowds as they change over.
The exclusive Ikos Deluxe Collection package entitles guests to two complimentary neck and back massages per stay, as well as use of a unique pool, separate area on the beach, champagne on arrival, pillow selection and many more special benefits for a totally VIP experience.
For those looking for a little more action, classes at the tennis and football academies are ideal for honing those skills, whilst bike riding, yoga sessions, water polo and canoeing are amongst some of the activities possible for all the family in Ikos' Infinite Lifestyle offering.
Livelier guests can try their hand (and feet) at traditional Greek dancing, or simply take a seat and soak up the resort's many entertainment offerings every night of the week. There's live music from laid back jazz to traditional Greek folk, and theatre, movies and exclusive parties to enjoy.
Located within a secluded bay, Ikos Dassia is party to breathtaking views over to the mainland and is ideally situated to explore the fascinating nearby coastal landscape.
Legend has it that love beckons at Sidari, where swimming through the Canal d’Amour, will have you find your soul mate, so the myth says. This natural ‘tunnel’ in the sandstone rocks is just one of the sandstone formations found around the spectacular sand beaches around the town.
