The discount:

We advertise this offer at up to 25% off. We calculate this discount percentage based on the rates we offer compared to a price check of other online travel providers offering the same product and travel date. An example of our maximum discount is:

On 11/04/2019, leaving from London Gatwick, two people may book a five-night stay in a Classic room with garden view (inclusions as noted above) and will pay £555 per person, per stay, compared to a third party online rate of £736 per person, per stay. Based on this calculation, by booking with Secret Escapes, you will save 25%.

The discounts, price and availability stated above were checked on 31/12/2018.

Due to fluctuations in other travel providers’ prices, the discount advertised will not always be the same discount on the “from” price.

The lead price shown is subject to availability, which will naturally decrease during the course of a sale as the relevant dates are booked. 

The offer is 100% non-refundable and date changes are not possible once the booking has been made.

Your contract is with Secret Escapes with ATOL number 11257.

A five, seven or 10-night all-inclusive Crete escape to a modern and elegant, five-star village-style resort, with in-resort perks and all travel

Greece's largest island, Crete, weaves a rich tapestry of golden beaches, natural wonders, archaeological treasures and historic harbour towns. With a prime beachfront location, Ikaros Beach Luxury Resort & Spa is a sprawling village-stye establishment. Designed in authentic fashion using age-old buildings techniques and local Cretan stone, its accommodation is dotted among landscaped gardens, accessed by stone pathways that meander through hilly palm, flower and herb-strewn gardens.

At this five-star base you could easily float in the dreamy freeform main pool, landscaped with boulders, with a front row seat to the Mediterranean. For true inner peace, retreat to the Aura Spa - a supremely serene palace of pampering. With six restaurants that run the gamut of global cuisine, taste buds will certainly be tantalised throughout your stay, too. Add to this three sea-view bars, one of which hosts regular live music and entertainment, where you may even catch a performance of the distinctive Cretan three-string lyre. Cocktail aficionados will be in seventh heaven as the mixologists here have perfected their craft down to a fine art. This property has been awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Accommodation

Housed in the main building, Classic rooms are decorated in minimalist fashion in soft grey and calming earthy tones, with a private balcony or terrace overlooking the resort gardens or the sea.

Amenities:

- Flatscreen satellite TV
- Wi-Fi access
- En-suite bathroom
- Tea and coffee facilities
- Direct-dial telephone
- Hairdryer

Dining

The resort boasts six restaurants, three of which are a la carte. Full-board guests are well catered for in the buffet-style Olive Main Restaurant, with international and Cretan choices. Here, regular themed dinners (from Mexican and Asian to Italian and Greek) ensure palates never get jaded. Elsewhere, and for an additional supplement, Ayeri restaurant offers Mediterranean delicacies, Veranda is your go-to for gastronomic delights with sea views, and Ouzeri - Kafenion is a lovely fish tavern sitting on the edge of the sea. Four bars are available on site, too, whether you're looking to slow-sip a cocktail by the pool or enjoy a well-designed indoor setting at the Ikaros Lobby Bar.

Spa

Aura Spa boasts an exquisite minimalist design and earthy tones, where sunlight streams in from every angle and even the sauna has a sea view. It comprises a heated indoor pool, conservatory-style relaxation area, steam room, gym and various treatment rooms. Signature treatments include the delicious hot olive oil, raki and orange oil massage – a Cretan speciality.  Please note that use of the spa, as well as spa treatments, incur an additional charge.

Location

Ikaros Beach Luxury Resort & Spa enjoys a prime beachfront location with its own private sandy beach. The coastline here can be rocky in places, but the sandy beach slopes gently into the sea, making it ideal for swimming. It’s 35 kilometres to the historic port town of Heraklion, where you can visit its fascinating archaelogical museum. History buffs will also revel in the equally intriguing ancient Minoan Palace of Knossos.
