Expert review of Amathus Beach Hotel
When the Amathus Beach opened in 1973, it quickly became the benchmark against which other Limassol hotels were judged. Despite some strong competition, it is still one of the best hotels in town, and an ongoing refurbishment programme (an opulent new spa, chic new rooms, luxury suites with private pools) aims to keep it that way.
On its own private beach at the far end of Limassol’s tourist area, some 9km east of the city centre.
Choose from seven room types. Sea view and superior sea view rooms have quite roomy balconies with views over the gardens to the sea (and, after dark, the twinkling lights of Limassol). Inland view rooms which previously looked out over a less inspiring urban vista have recently been enlarged by converting their balconies into luxurious sitting rooms. A private annexe houses junior sea-view suites and – on the ground floor - junior suites with private pool and Jacuzzi. All junior suites are divided into sleeping area (with large double or twin beds) and living area with a settee which can be converted into an extra double. The executive suites on the upper floors of the main building have elegant full-sized living rooms and separate en-suite bedroom. In all rooms and suites, you’ll find amenities including satellite TV, free WiFi access, mini-bar, tea and coffee-making kit, thick fluffy bathrobes and Bulgari toiletries.
A bright and airy lobby/reception area with floor-to-ceiling glass wall opens onto a terrace which overlooks grassy lawns shaded by palm trees and a recently spruced-up private beach with loungers and umbrellas.
Open air dining at La Terrazza (Italian) or on the beach at Limanaki (traditional-style fish taverna), Chinese, Thai and Japanese at Asiachi or fusion-international in The Cyan, the hotel’s fine dinining restaurant. For drinks, the Helios poolside bar, Petrino bar on the beach, or the classy NuBar cocktail lounge in the lobby.
Three outdor pools, a 2010-built gym with the latest in fitness equipment and a luscious new spa with 14 treatment rooms and the largest indoor pool\ in Cyprus. Watersports including windsurfing, sailing, jet-skis.
Professional and ubiquitous (without being intrusive) from arrival to departure.
Couples (both child-free and empty-nesters); families with children; tour groups and conference delegates.
Inland view rooms start at 130 euros only, including tax, in low season and rise to around 226 euros in summer season. Junior suites with private pool start at 436 euros, rising to 706 euros in summer.
