Suburban location on the main coastal road east; not much of a beach below, but there are views out to sea and, after dark, to the twinkling lights of the Limnassol waterfront.
Seven different types of rooms and suites. All are light, bright, and big, with floor-to-ceiling windows and quirky, colourful lighting and touches like the giant soft-toy-style cushions in the shape of peppers and tomatoes that adorn your bed. Clean design lines and white, beige and wood tones give the place a vaguely Asian feel. Big beds and fine linens, too, along with designer bathroom stuff. They say: rooms have either a stunning sea view or an ‘animated town view of Limassol.’ I say: the ‘town view’ looks out over an uninspiring landscape and main highway, but there are also side-sea-view rooms that make a good compromise in price.
Marble-floored reception area and lobby with its high-tech open fireplace and light-filled columns which illuminate it at night lets you know that this is not your average package-holiday holiday hotel. Londa’s lobby bar is a place to see and be seen for smart young(ish) locals, especially at weekend nights.
Eating and drinking
The Caprice lounge and restaurant, a branch of the famous one on Mykonos, are full of Limassol’s bright young things, mostly dressed in black. Eat within, or for most of the year on the sea-view deck.
Small private beach with watersports including windsurfers and kayaks. Signature outdoor pool (not the largest, but big enough for a proper swim) and an excellent spa with treatments for men and women.
Smart but casual, friendly young waiters and reception staff and a high than average staff-to-guest ratio. If you're on a bigger budget, you can have your own personal assistant, chef, driver, houskeeper or concierge, and nannies are also available.
Who stays there
Discerning business travellers, weekenders from elsewhere in Cyprus, lesiure visitors looking for somewhere distinctive and a cut above the mainstream.
Very large choice of packages, with some excellent winter and autumn deals between October and March. Expect to pay 150-200 euros per person per night for a side view room.
