Featuring a private beach, the ultra-all-inclusive Akti Imperial Deluxe Spa Resort & Convention Center is a modern, elegant 4*plus, historical hotel overlooking the sea, perfect for this unforgettable holiday, in the enchanting setting of Ixia and the Aegean Sea. It is no wonder the Akti Imperial hotel is known as, ‘the thought of everything haven’ designed with your total relaxation and happy holiday memories in mind. Once you have checked in and unpacked, head for one of the four outdoor pools and breathe! After some relaxation and maybe a bit of pampering in the spa and Turkish bath, it’s time for dinner in one of the eight excellent restaurants.
