Ikos Odisia, Corfu
The sixth addition to the group’s award-winning luxury all-inclusive collection, Ikos Odisia will offer the same alluring cocktail of ingredients: Michelin-starred menus, spa treatments by Anne Sémonin Paris, dining at local restaurants at no extra charge (including the exclusive Vidos island, accessed by private boat), a vast cava and wine list, and complimentary local driving adventures – to name just some of the lures.
On a private sandy beach framed by fragrant woodland just 20km from the World Heritage listed Old Town of Corfu, Ikos Odisia will have chic, welcoming rooms and suites dotted throughout the extensive grounds in low-rise buildings that blend with the stunning natural surroundings.

One&Only Aesthesis, Athens, Greece
With just 127 rooms, suites and villas paying homage to mid-century design, this outpost of the super-luxury group will occupy an exclusive beachfront estate in the south of Athens. Central to its offerings are outstanding cuisine based on sustainable local ingredients in two signature restaurants, and unique Grecian therapies based on traditional methods blended with state-of-the-art products and technology in the sleek Chenot spa.
If you can bring yourself to leave these cosseting surrounds, curated land and sea experiences on offer will include hot spring visits, guided hikes, sunset surfing and tours of the Acropolis.

Fully reinvented, this property by the famed Spanish group radiates contemporary luxury in the Italian fashion capital’s dynamic and fast-evolving neighbourhood, just a stroll from the CityLife district with its modern architecture and urban garden.
