The runner-up in the global 'Top Hotel' category is Hotel Colline de France in Brazil, while Ikos Aria on the Greek isle of Kefalos (a hotel that performs well in several categories) lands third.
Overview of IKOS Aria
The stunning Ikos Aria will tempt visitors with five pools, seven à-la-carte restaurants, and nine bars in an immaculate beachfront setting.
Ikos Aria is situated in the small town of Kefalos with direct access to a Blue Flag beach. From the beach, you can swim or paddleboard across the shore to the nearby islet of Kastri, home to a small blue and white chapel.
Spend a day travelling around the island on your MINI Drive Adventure, and journey 23 miles to Kos Town, which is known for its bustling harbour, medieval castle, museums and traditional tavernas.
From here, you can visit the famous thermal springs at Agios Fokas Beach or head to Triantafyllopoulos winery to sample delicious wines, made by traditional pressing methods.
Make sure to pick up your complimentary tickets for the winery and Kos Archaeological Museum at the hotel before you hit the road. At the end of the day, drive up the dramatic hillside, towards Agios Theologos, to watch the breathtaking sunset. Kos Airport lies about nine miles away from the resort.
