The official start of the summer, the most anticipated season of the year, is indeed very near. Surely summer has shown its first subtle tan signs on our skin while the bright, warm sunlight blindly guides us to the nearest beach. Be that as it may, or should we say May, spring still lingers in the cool breeze that so politely offers a pleasant shiver and dances in the buzz of the bees that oscillate from flower to flower leaving behind a refreshing path of aromas. Take the time to appreciate these small oases while we are still long away from the autumn’s first raindrops.
To celebrate spring and nature’s beauty, every May, Cypriots hold a flower parade. The parade, which is rooted into the Cypriot and Greek history, was originally a tribute to Dionysos, the god of fertility, as well as to man’s and nature’s rebirth. The flower festival, also known as ‘Anthestiria’, will take place at Dasoudi Beach in Yermasogia, on the 14th and 15th of May. Dasoudi Beach will be buzzing with life, with people popping from one workshop to the next, enjoying the local art exhibitions as well as music and dance performances. On Sunday the 15th the colourful, vibrant floats, inspired by flowers and the spring, will fill the Limassol coastal road for the flower parade. What a delight!
A delightful parade of another sort
We at Londa Beach Hotel always welcome spring in all its glorious nature, with its refreshing fragrances and cool breeze. We also enjoy the festivity tributes to nature’s beauty and, who knows, we might make our own flower float for Anthestiria one day. This May, at the Londa Beach Hotel, however, we have another parade to prepare for, that’s even more delightful: the parade of award nominations at the World Travel Awards. We are very proud that Londa Beach Hotel has been nominated in 5 different categories and at such esteemed Awards. Specifically, Londa Beach Hotel has been nominated as Europe’s Leading Lifestyle Hotel, Cyprus Leading Hotel, Cyprus Leading Hotel, Cyprus Leading Boutique Hotel, Mediterranean Leading Boutique Hotel and Cyprus Leading Hotel Suite. Take the time to see our nominations in detail and vote for Londa Beach Hotel.
Roses are red violets are blue…
Do you know what else is blue? The stunning view from the Londa Beach Hotel seaside rooms! Just like a Renaissance painting, they allure you to a dazzling setting of a bright blue sky, which ascends from the depths of the Mediterranean sea and reaches out to the sun. A bit over the top? We don’t think so… But then again, at the Londa Beach Hotel, life is ever so beautiful, so the only way to really know is to come and experience it for yourself.
