Almyra – one of the chicest and sleekest hotels in the Mediterranean and a member of Design Hotels will undergo an extensive renovation this winter. The hotel, which occupies eight acres of beautifully landscaped gardens at the heart of Paphos’ seafront, will be closed from today (2nd December 2019) and will reopen in February 2020 to reveal its multi-million euro refurbishment.
These enhancements will be overseen by leading French designer Joëlle Pleot, who has been working with the group for many years. The new rooms and suites will be updated with custom-made furniture in Pleot’s signature sleek style. Think clean lines and varying shades of blue inspired by the Mediterranean Sea that surrounds the island. In keeping with Thanos Hotels and Resorts commitment to the community, local craftsmen and artisans have been entrusted to create handmade oak and olive tree tables and accessories with other soft furnishings using silk and leather.
Maintaining the nautical theme throughout, artwork by local photographer Michalis Kouloumos depicting scenes from the seafront of Paphos will be placed in all bedrooms. In-room entertainment will be modernised, with the addition of Smart TV’s in every room. All of the bathrooms will be fitted with brand new luxurious Italian Carrara marble walk-in showers.
The hotel lobby will be refreshed with brand new bespoke furniture and lighting, injecting a new lease of life into the public spaces. Aeras Restaurant which overlooks the sea will also reveal a fresh new aesthetic, in hues of dark blue with a new atmospheric lighting system.
This renovation follows a major makeover for Almyra which took place in 2017. Sister hotels Annabelle and Anassa also underwent refurbishments in 2018 and 2016 respectively – all of which propelled the hotels back onto the world’s travel hotlists. Almyra is a symbol of cool, contemporary Cyprus and offers a laidback and elegant take on Mediterranean luxury. The resort is home to 187 chic and spacious rooms, five distinct restaurants, one of which – Notios, Almyra’s signature Japanese-Mediterranean fusion restaurant has just received the Top Notch Award at the Toques d’Or Awards 2019, and an award-winning Almyraspa, which recently won the Best Spa Award at the Madame Figaro Beauty Awards 2019.
Rates at Almyra start from €216 (approx. £185) per room per night including breakfast
