Travel, Hotel & Party Packages in Ios, Greece


Following recent media reports in Norway regarding the Norwegian Russ groups travelling to Ios this summer we as a company, Life is a Beachparty, would like to make the following statement:
Life is a Beachparty strongly disagrees with the way the media has portrayed Ios (Greece) as a destination. The articles were one sided and based on a few unfortunate, but unusual incidents for Ios.
Overall and in comparison to other party holiday destinations, Ios is a very safe and friendly island.
We have received many statements from Norwegian costumer's travelling to Ios 1 - 2 weeks before the "Norwegian Invasion" week, that stated this is not the Ios they experienced and that they found the articles to be heavily exaggerated.
Our business plan has never been to focus on Norwegian's only or in particular the Russ market. The growth or popularity of Russ travelling to Ios has happened organically over time.
As we are in constant communication with our customers, feedback from the previous summer form an important aspect of our improvement of our services in Ios. We received strong feedback from the Russ groups that they wanted us to cater for them with Norwegian specific events in Ios. Based on this information, lead to why we organised Tix to come to Ios this summer.
We are disappointed about the behaviour of some of the Russ groups in Ios this summer but tried our best to react to diffuse any of these issues as quickly as possible. The last few days of the Russ week in Ios, we were happy to see no more fights took place and we will make further precautions in the future. We absolutely disagree with violence, and have always tried to make peace within groups & within Ios business owners as much as possible. Violence & fighting has nothing to do with what we want to offer young travellers in Ios.
We have already had meetings in Ios with the local community & tourism board. We have met with bar, club & hotel owners as well as the local police & authorities in Ios. The last couple of days with the Russ groups in Ios we were able to stop the fighting and everyone will be better prepared next year. What happened this year came unexpected and following an extensive review will lead to further improvements and precautions taken.
We are currently in the process of having conversations with groups who want to travel to Ios next year already. We will offer additional information & resources to both groups and parents prior to booking and travelling to Ios next summer. We will include parents in the dialogue and put strategies & plans in place on how we can ensure an improved experience for everyone involved.
We started Life is a Beachparty because we love to travel, we want to show people the best time possible in Ios and bring home good memories.
It is our first priority to make sure our vision will be fulfilled again next summer.
