As you’re walking into the Londa Beach Hotel, you immediately notice the wall-sized windows that lead you toward the ocean. You’re inside, but your first sight is the sea.
If you’re in town on business, a sense of relief will set in.
Otherwise, you may be visiting for the infamous restaurants, bars, and lounges often compared to a more refined Ibiza. Or you’re here as the luxe local seeking a drink or Mediterranean feast at the trendy Caprice. It’s time to mix and mingle with ocean views, and you wouldn’t want to start your night anywhere else.
The pristine boutique hotel is “a lady by day, but knows how to dress up at night.”
Located on the coastline, it is the ONLY hotel in Limassol directly on the water. A few minutes drive from nightclubs like Breeze and Dolce, it’s also fifteen minutes away from historical spots such as Aphrodite Rock and Paphos. Beach is there, history is everywhere, and the decadent meals are more affordable than you’re trying to bargain. As if that wasn’t enough to make you come back, the Londa Boutique Hotel offers a special spa whose services include a unique herbal massage that combines pressure-point tactics of the Swedish massage with relaxation remedies in harmony with nature.
Boutique hotels are recognized for their intimate hospitality and characteristic designs. The Londa Hotel managed to encompass all things welcoming. Conceived by Italian designer, Letizia Caruzza, it juxtaposes earthy accents with a clean, modern feel.
“The theme interweaves geometry, landscape, and culture in a ‘mélange’ that freely traces the interplay of man and nature in the Mediterranean area to define a place of rarefied intensity.”
As homage to the heritage of the island, the Londa has been designed using influences of the sea as well as Cypriot lace, antique filigree silver, and wood. With high ceilings, strategic lighting arrangements, and the textured furnishings, the hotel itself exerts energy as positive as its people.
The Londa Beach Hotel is the recipient of numerous World Travel Awards such as Best Hotel in Cyprus and the Mediterranean’s Leading Boutique Hotel.
You may have caught my article “Cyprus: I’m Obsessed and You Would Be Too!” on Huffington Post Travel… what I didn’t emphasize enough, was how strongly my choice of stay impacted my experience. The Londa Beach Hotel, managed by Columbia Hotels & Resorts, and the Columbia Beach Resort fueled my obsession for Cyprus. The ongoing ocean presence, the friendly and courteous personnel, and the trendy boutique arrangement harmonized for a euphoric experience. There’s nothing like a hotel so phenomenal that you have to actually pull yourself away to see the sites.
