Italian designed boutique Londa Hotel in Cyprus upgrades spa with new treatment range
The Londa is the contemporary boutique hotel with a beach front setting in Limassol that has become equally popular with holiday-makers who are attracted to high chic along with their sunshine, as well as business guests who like the close proximity to the city’s thriving business district. To compliment the calm efficiency and warm welcome of this award-winning* hotel the Londa is announcing enhanced spa facilities and treatments for guests from March 2009.
Mona Pashia joined the Londa Spa last year as spa manager, and she has already implemented changes to reflect her aim of combining natural elements with the latest technology, delivering quality therapies by highly trained professional staff. She explains, “A high proportion of the Londa’s guests are professionals who are here in Cyprus on business and we also attract guests who have high energy lifestyles back at home. Quite often they rarely get the opportunity to relax so we aim to offer unparalleled peace and serenity here in the Londa Spa, as well as visible results from our treatments”.
“It’s quite simple”, she says, “We want to make every client feel like a prince or princess while they are here. Everyone needs a little special attention”
And it works.
Since Mona introduced selected treatments such as Peace of the senses, (a soothing massage with orange and marjoram essential oils to combat stress euro80 / 55 min) and others like Orient essences ceremony (based on the use of essential oils, exotic elements and aromatic bags soaked in warmed spices and butter granite for relaxation, detoxification and to awaken the senses euro100 / 1h15 min), bookings have trebled.
The interior design of the Londa is a contemporary classic. The highly unique style created by a design team from Milan shows influences from the heritage of the island and from the Mediterranean including Cypriot lace, antique filigree silver and wood. White marble on the ground floor accentuates the view out to the sea through a wall of glass which the Londa is famous for. Furnishings follow neutral shades and clean lines, while bedrooms are given vibrant accents of colour and texture.
With just 68 rooms and suites spread across seven floors, the atmosphere at the Londa is intimate and welcoming. All rooms have five star facilities including Nespresso coffee machines, luxury Molton Brown cosmetics, high speed internet access, wi-fi, and cordless phone.
The Londa’s celebrated restaurant, the Caprice, and lounge bar have become the place to see and be seen by the smart social set in Cyprus. Guests enjoy Mediterranean cuisine with a twist with everything made fresh in the Londa kitchens. Whether you choose afternoon tea on the terrace or late night lounge tunes from a regular DJ, the Londa adapts its ambience to suit.
Limassol is sometimes now called a “mini-Miami”; the local people are well-known in Cyprus for enjoying a good time and this vibrant city is undergoing enormous development. The main promenade along the sea-shore has been completely refurbished and is now a popular place for walks, jogging and there are lots of stylish bars and cafes that stay open late on the beach too.
