As is well known, checking out is the first step to check in, and anyone searching for luxurious holiday accommodation not only looks for stars, but also for the last time they were polished to a high gloss. Especially in the Mediterranean area, this research automatically leads to the luxury resort Almyra, which is enthroned on the coast at the western tip of Cyprus. For around a month now, the property, which is part of the Thanos hotel group, which also includes the Anassa and the Annabelle, has been opening its doors again and is attracting illustrious guests from all over the world with its incomparably contemporary design. The recent refurbishment, which has involved millions of euros in a further upgrade, is noticeable in every detail: Italian Carrara marble bathrooms, the most modern equipment and noble interior await guests in their spacious rooms. The lobby and the restaurant also shine in a new splendour. Interior-fans recognise the signature of the French designer Joëlle Pléot, who was responsible for the redesign. She contrasts the modern architecture of the house with custom-made furniture made of olive and oak wood by local craftsmen and plays cleverly with individual colour accents, such as armchairs in royal blue or lamps made of brass.
A mecca for hedonists
But this is not enough, after all, one does not only want to spend the holiday in one's room, even if it is very elegantly arranged. To pass the time, besides the spacious pool, a fully equipped fitness centre, an exclusive spa and sauna, as well as a steam bath are waiting for guests seeking relaxation. The culinary well-being is also taken care of: Al Fresco-Dining is on the program in the in-house restaurant Notios. Here, Asian and Mediterranean influences are combined, with the "New Style Sashimi" and the "Fusion Maki Rolls" being particularly recommended. The main restaurant Mosaic is more traditional, where you can choose between local specialities and classics of European cuisine from the rich buffet. The former is also served at Ouzeri, which reinterprets the concept of a Greek tavern and is the right place for atmospheric evenings.
The hotel also lives up to its reputation as a piece of paradise on earth through its close surroundings: tranquil little villages with traditional architecture, picturesque vineyards and an impressive natural backdrop invite you to engage in outdoor sports activities. Courses with local artists can be booked as well as wine tastings or guided tours on the island, which is increasingly becoming a Mecca for luxury travellers. With prestigious hotel projects such as Almyra, this is by no means a surprising development.
