The AMARA is situated in a stunning location, just a short distance away from the royal ancient kingdom of Amathus, which dates back to 1100 BC. Its name is from the Greek Amarantos – which means everlasting – and like its name, during the construction of the hotel, part of Limassol's ancient city walls were discovered - this is a great feature of the Spa, where you can see these well preserved ruins.

The AMARA strives to make their guests’ stay truly unforgettable. Inspired by Cyprus’ rich culture, you’ll find natural wood and marble fittings as part of the hotel’s décor. Plus, each of the 207 rooms has a gorgeous panoramic view of the Mediterranean Sea.

Relax amongst the understated luxury and effortless elegance of the architecture and furnishings. There are numerous art pieces around the hotel, some large and make a statement, others small and delicate - look for the tiny statues of birds and people! There is an excellent range of facilities and the AMARA is well suited to both families and couples, with easy access to the beach where you'll find shallow waters perfect for little toes. We would also recommend a day out exploring the bustling city of Limassol, where you’ll find lots of bars and restaurants. There are also four 18-hole golf courses, which are just a 30-minute drive away, plus a wide-range of shops. The hotel itself is home to fashion, jewellery and flower boutiques, where you can pick up gifts and souvenirs.

When it comes to dining, you’ll be spoilt for choice, with restaurants from expert chefs, Nobu Matsuhisa and Giorgio Locatelli. Indulge with Italian, Japanese Peruvian fusion, seafood and Greek-Cypriot flavours. Afterwards, relax in the spa or enjoy a delicious cocktail or fine wine in the hotel’s bars.
