Amathus Beach Hotel Limassol
A Top-Notch Hospitality!
The perfect choice for travelers seeking the ultimate in serene tranquility.
When I was here last year on a business lunch towards the end of October, I noticed that some works were going on and the management was struggling to have it ready for this new season. I was back recently and happily surprised with the amazing changes, the new developments made and the final look. While here, I was thinking how lucky are the ones who decide to spend their holidays in this earthly paradise.
The Amathus is not just a superb hotel but the one on the peak that justly competes with its sister hotel the Four Seasons 5* Deluxe ranking 1st & 2nd in popularity in Limassol, under the management of Muskita Hotels.
LOCATION: Great base for exploring the island. Right on the coast in the southern coastline of the island, close to the heart of Limassol’s highlighted tourist area, almost midway between the airports of Paphos and Larnaca.
CHECK-IN: Fast and efficient. It did not last more than 5 minutes even though there were 3 other couples asking for information and another checking-out. I simply had to fill up a form and sign it. The team seem to know well how to handle with punctuality this stressful post when the phone is ringing for information and guests show up.
AMBIENCE: A repeater could easily sense the several changes made. First time guests will instantly feel the friendlier and warm welcoming aura of the interior. Some changes are so radical that cannot be missed while others are more subtle for extra comfort and a homely feeling. The interior is as breathtaking as the surroundings and the atmosphere throughout the premises is second to none.
STAFF / SERVICE: Levels of service is beyond excellent. True team spirit, trained and engrained from the top down. Across the hotel and within each department I noticed something in the air more like a family feeling than a corporate culture. For the majority of them it has become a second home and their aim is to make each and every guest feel comfortable. Staff and management work on the least detail for the comfort, taste and preference of every guest.
SUITE: I simply loved my Superior Sea view suite #238. Fully renovated, pleasantly spacious, spotless and tastefully furnished. A feeling of freshness, elegance but simplicity at the same time. The view was uninterrupted to the gleaming waters, the fragrant gardens and lush lawns that surround the premises. I would leave the balcony door wide open day and night only to listen to the relaxing sounds of the lapping of the waves.
The morning breeze and the sounds of seagulls would wake me up. The king-size bed added an additional touch of elegance. On the whole all amenities are tailored to the needs of today’s travelers.
A bowl of seasonal fruit was the complimentary treat the first day, and there was another gift the last day before checking-out.
BATHROOM: Simple and modern, fresh towels, scales, a hairdryer, slippers and robes. A nice kit and complement Bvlgari toiletries standing out and giving that little extra ultimate comfort.
KIDS: New facilities and services that ensure a relaxing and care-free fun family break. Being a family-friendly hotel the new management has dedicated a family area that combines a waterpark-style children’s pool, the children’s adventure playground and a sandy family beach –complete with toys. It was something that was missing but it is reality now and as a magnet, it attracts children and parents with equal power.
From water sports adventures to educational programs, island excursions, swimming and dining, families are sure to enjoy some fun and amusing time together and experience the most exciting family vacations.
(At the same time, couples enjoy the privacy of their own relaxing holidays on the other side of the premises.)
I knew that the New Pelican Kids Club programme is bursting with activities, but I had no idea that upon arrival children are welcomed with a bright (souvenir) an Amathus backpack filled with surprises which I can’t tell since they are a surprise anyway!
THE BEACH: There’s a second sandy beach option for guests to enjoy, besides the main seafront area, a new sandy cove along the beatuful Limanaki Restaurant.
THE SPA: Have in mind that the Amathus Spa –a ‘Leading Spa of the World’ – has the largest indoor sea-water pool in Cyprus, ideal for winter months with a steady temperature of 28° C.
BREAKFAST: A delectable feast. The interactive show kitchen of the restaurant provides all creativity, embellishing the simple love of good food. The journey begins with full American breakfast at its best to start your day on the right food.
LIMANAKI:Limassol’s Prime Seafood Restaurant. It is one of the oldest and most reputable restaurants in Limassol and its growing glory remains its fresh fish drawn from local as well as international waters. With the new management taking over, nothing has been left to chance here, starting with the enchanting seating, the impeccable service and the exceptional quality of fish and seafood.
THE CYAN: (International & Mediterranean fusion cuisine). Its contemporary interior, the natural hues and décor exude a feeling of tranquility and sophistication. The restaurant prides for its cozy atmosphere and fine wine dining. I tried both the buffet and the table d’hôte menu. The rich international delectable buffet, offers a true journey of tastes.
THE GRILL ROOM: It ranks at the top and boasts for its unparalleled bay view, set on a 60-square-metre outdoor patio for romantic dinners. This journey of contemporary and gourmet dining assures to satisfy the most discerning taste palette. Prime cuts of meat, perfectly cooked in a superior Josper wood add extra flavor to every dish. (For a more detailed review, check my comments under the restaurants’ pages)
TIP: Hotel guests of the Amathus and Four Seasons Hotel have joined forces and resources, and have gone a step further, offering the ‘DineAround’. A Gourmet experience excursion that is delicious, sophisticated and relaxing in equal measure. The choice is among the most popular cuisine served in five different award-winning restaurants at preferential prices. (Find more through the website).
IN ALL: I whole heartily recommend this lovely hotel for all the above reasons. The people here know well how to make guests feel important and valued. I felt spoilt with all the care and attention thanks to the whole professional team. Guys, you made my stay memorable. Keep the good work up!
Luxury Upper Crust hotel- Justifies its Ranking
New Management: I visited the Old Amathus several years back with mixed feelings but never returned again until now. The reason, the negative comments I would come across especially the last couple of years.
After the refurbishing and lift up ONLY its name today reminds of the previous hotel.
I am not going to comment on the stay at this point, but I did have the opportunity to visit the premises twice during my recent stay in Limassol and I also had a Business Lunch here, so the comments are on the general outlook.
The restaurant's review is on the Restaurants' column
LOCATION: Superb, the beach is outstanding, the location makes it a great base for exploring the island as well.
THE NEW LOOK: The entire accommodation in the main building has been by now fully renovated. I asked to have a look at a few rooms. You instantly notice the difference, the interiors have a new upgraded look and they are very inviting with great views.
The Amathunta Suites though are the most glamorous ones and these are found on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floor. They have a classy elegance overlooking the dazzling Mediterranean Sea. There are both economic rooms as well as luxurious suites and it is up to the budget of the interested party to book accordingly. What we pay is what we get isn’t it?
THE SPA: Member of the Leading Spas of the World, the Amathus Spa Centre has the largest indoor pool in Cyprus with sea water that is heated to 28 °C during the cooler winter months.
IN ALL: The hotel seems to offer world-class comfort. It looks ideal for travelers seeking a relaxing retreat, families and corporate travelers wishing to visit Cyprus. I expect to experience all these when I visit it and then I can tell more about it. From the short visit, I believe it justly deserves the top ranking that takes it up to the 2nd best in Limassol, with the #1 the Four Seasons its sister hotel.
One of Limassol's best!
Lovely hotel with its own beach and a central swimming pool. Exceptionally friendly staff and perfect for a romantic getaway or simply just pampering yourself!
