InterContinental Hotels & Resorts recently opened its first branded boutique hotel titled Hotel Indigo Larnaca in Cyprus. Located at the centre of one of Larnaca’s most historic areas, near the church of St. Lazarus, the property is close to Finikoudes and Mackenzie beaches and a five-minute drive away from the airport. The hotel offers an accommodation of 40 bedrooms. The property will operate under the international agreement between InterContinental Hotels Group, Sunnyseeker Hospitality and Quality Group, one of the largest companies of land development and investment on the island.
Each of the rooms has its own unique design that has been inspired by Cyprus’s craft heritage with balconies overlooking the picturesque city. The bedrooms give out a modern and contemporary vibe and are a combination of raw concrete with locally-made, bright coloured traditional textiles and light wooden furnishings. The en-suite bathrooms have spa-like rain showers, with brushed concrete flooring and original Cypriot tiling.
All the balconies are fitted with traditional Mediterranean yellow shutters that will remind one of old Cyprus as well as compliment the sunset amongst the surrounding mountains. In fact, the entire Hotel Indigo Larnaca has been made after amalgamating two traditional Cypriot beach homes into a new hotel. As a result, design elements from both old and new have been merged together.
In addition, the hotel also features a stunning rooftop pool and Kampana Pool Bar that provide guests with breath-taking views of the sea. It also has a regionally inspired onsite restaurant, Avli, and the Oinotelia wine bar. The eateries are situated on the ground floor and are a destination for locals, tourists, and guests. Savvas Kakos, Chief Executive, Quality Group, said in a statement that the company is extremely happy and proud to welcome one of the most renowned hotel groups to the city of Larnaca. He said that unique and intriguing hotel is one of the world’s largest boutique brands and Hotel Indigo is now part of the wider area of Saint Lazarus. He mentioned that the hotel is ideal addition to the heart of the city.
