New ultra-luxe resort featuring Raison d’Etre spa opens in Cyprus

by Jane Kitchen | 25 Jul 2019

Cyprus-based hospitality group Stademos Hotels has unveiled its latest resort, Amara, a 207-bedroom hotel in the coastal town of Limassol.

With the architecture and interior design of the new build carried out by SB Architects, David Rockwell Studio and WA Interiors, the hotel’s interiors were inspired by Cyprus’ intricate heritage, with cultural influences and architectural details expressive of the island’s Mediterranean landscape. The floor-to-ceiling windows welcome an abundance of natural light into the rooms and suites, which are filled with soft, sandy tones, blue and teal colour accents, and warm wooden lighting fixtures.

The spa, developed by Raison d’Etre, offers a host of Carita and Organic Pharmacy treatments, alongside a personal trainer, qualified nutritionist, nail bar and hairdressing salon. Spa services also include a laconium, caldarium, tepidarium and a frigidarium, all inspired by ancient Roman baths.

“It is an exciting time to be opening the doors at Amara given the recent increase in investment of luxury hotels and property in Limassol,” said general manager Xavier Jolivet. “The town has seen a surge of development in recent years, including the completion of the new marina, and multiple high-end hotel openings in the pipeline very much placing Limassol on the map as a luxury European beach destination in its own right”.
