Londa Hotel: The transformation that has people talking
13:06 - 04 May 2023
The Londa Hotel, a beloved landmark in Limassol, is undergoing a transformation that has design lovers and investors buzzing with excitement.
The former hotel, known for its unique blend of luxury and Mediterranean heritage, is being converted into high-end residences by the renowned Parisian designer Thierry Lemaire.
According to the hotel’s website, out of the 29 luxury apartments up for sale, around half have been sold during the design phase.
Situated in Limassol, Londa’s beachfront location and surrounding greenery provide full privacy and give an intimate warm feeling.
And it has a long history, hosting politicians, presidents and the most influential families of Cyprus. Over 30 years, Londa has provided luxury, beach holidays, hosted unforgettable intimate weddings and events, conferences and relaxing Spa breaks.
By transforming it into a limited number of high-end residences with uninterrupted sea views and sunlight all year around, while keeping a strong focus on environment to preserve the natural beauty surrounding it, the designer has maximised Londa’s potential to provide its future residents with the best value and bespoke luxury for all senses.
Buyers have three property categories to choose from: The Garden Collection, The Penthouse Collection and The Residences Collection.
The Garden Collection
Vast open-plan living is offered inside with entertaining space that continues onto the sunrise terrace, steps down to your private garden, a large swimming pool, Mediterranean landscaping, and private access to the beach.
The Penthouse Collection
Set across the highest floors of Londa, duplex apartments with four en-suite bedrooms offer private roof gardens with infinity pools, where residents can enjoy the morning calm of the Mediterranean Sea and the sparkling lights of the city come evening.
The rooftop terraces are designed both for entertaining and relaxing with plenty of space for basking in the sun, cooking alfresco, or entertaining at the signature marble-topped bar by Thierry Lemaire – a precious mirror placed in its centre means you can view the sea wherever you sit.
The Residences Collection
The open plan design of the one, two, and three-bedroom apartments within The Residences Collection makes these properties ideal for entertaining, with sunlit terraces with private hot tubs looking over the beach and the Mediterranean Sea. Bedrooms and bathrooms are luxuriously appointed, designed as spaces to unwind and recharge. Inspired by Art Deco influences that shaped the Golden Age of Riviera living, The Londa Residences has been designed by Parisian aesthete, Thierry Lemaire, as a space that has seemingly grown organically from the ancient coastal landscape.
A transformation promising to be nothing short of spectacular
“The message here is clear: The Londa Hotel is being reimagined by a top-tier designer, and its transformation promises to be nothing short of spectacular,” it said. “For high net worth individuals (HNWI) looking to invest in Cyprus or relocate to the area, this development is sure to catch their attention.”
