CRETE, GREECE – Ikaros Beach Luxury Resort & Spa offers stunning views of Crete for the fairytale wedding of your dreams. Sun, sea, blue sky, and the expert staff will make your special day unforgettable! The picturesque Ikaros Beach Luxury Resort and Spa is located along the northern coast of Crete, the island renowned for its unspoiled coastal charm, natural beauty, and rich culture.

The five-star hotel is perfectly positioned on a rocky peninsula with sandy beaches, coastal flora, and sweeping views overlooking the Cretan Sea. Steeped in the warmth of Cretan traditions and hospitality – Ikaros Beach brings luxury, romance, and world-class services together to ensure a remarkable experience for your wedding.

The National Herald asked what Greek-American couples can look forward to when planning their wedding at the Ikaros Spa.

TNH: What can a couple expect when they choose Ikaros Beach Luxury Resort & Spa as the venue for their wedding?

IS: Professional attention, respect to their needs and personal care.

TNH: You have had many Greek American weddings at your venue. What do Greek-American couples look for the most when they plan their wedding at Ikaros Beach Luxury Resort & Spa as opposed to what Greek couples look for? Are there any major differences, either in scale or preferences?

IS: Greek couples use the resort church, have bigger numbers for catering, and do not need much accommodation. Greek-American couples use the hotel accommodation for their out of Crete incoming guests. They usually organize various pre-wedding parties for both their guests from abroad but also any guests from Crete. They use the hotel church for their wedding and hold their wedding party at our Sunset beach deck. An after-wedding party brunch, with Greek food by the beach, next lunch time, usually completes the wedding celebration.

TNH: How many guests does your resort accommodate?

IS: We have 253 rooms of various types with a total capacity of approximately 550 guests. The hotel facilities include one main dining room and 5 a la carte dining areas. We also have children’s facilities, a private sandy beach, and a full services Spa.

TNH: What should Greek-American couples be aware of when they decide to plan a wedding in Greece and especially on Crete?

IS: Crete is an area specially blessed for starting a new life. However, the couples should schedule their needs by early January to make sure they may reserve all their wished-for accommodation needs. Everything else will be done after with good care and no matter the time-limit.
