Hotel Indigo debuts in the pretty Cypriot city of Larnaca
IHG has brought its rapidly expanding boutique brand Hotel Indigo to one of the most popular tourist hotspots in Cyprus.
Two traditional beach houses have been combined to form a new hospitality property under the umbrella of IHG’s boutique brand Hotel Indigo. We take a look inside Hotel Indigo Larnaca.
A seaside getaway for the 21st century
Cyprus has long been a popular holiday destination with people from all over the world, but this summer, potential visitors have another reason to start planning a trip to the popular Mediterranean island – the launch of a new IHG property in Larnaca. Conveniently located five minutes away from the airport by car, guests of Hotel Indigo Larnaca, which opened at the beginning of July, can easily explore the historic centre of the city as well as the nearby Finikoudes and Mackenzie beaches.
Hotel Indigo Larnaca operates under an agreement between IHG, hotel management company Sunnyseeker Hospitality and Quality Group, one of the largest land development and investment companies on the island. Savvas Kakos, president and CEO of Quality Group, said: “At Quality Group we are extremely happy and proud to welcome one of the most renowned hotel groups to the city of Larnaca.
“Unique and intriguing by definition, and one of the world’s largest boutique brands, Hotel Indigo is now part of the wider area of Saint Lazarus and a perfect addition to the heart of the city. On behalf of Quality Group, I convey my strong faith and certainty that this brand new and organic collaboration with IHG and Hotel Indigo will leave its mark on the hotel industry in Cyprus.”
A new jewel along the Cypriot coast
The property brings old and new together through its design. The architectural concept involves combining two existing beachfront properties together and making several additions to create a new boutique hotel inspired by Cypriot crafts, textiles and colours.
The development boasts 40 well-appointed rooms executed in a style that reflects the local culture and heritage of Cyprus, but that also appeals to the modern traveller seeking luxury, sophistication and convenience. Its fresh, contemporary design will no doubt attract a discerning clientele who appreciate the aesthetic of the distinctive materials used throughout, such as exposed concrete walls and brushed concrete floors.
In the guest rooms, the en-suite bathrooms have rain showers like those found in state-of-the-art spas, and the picturesque balconies are framed by yellow shutters that hark back to traditional Mediterranean constructions. But the highlights of the property are surely the incredible rooftop pool and bar, where guests are afforded panoramic views out over the city and the sparkling sea beyond, and the ground-floor restaurant and wine bar, which brings members of the public and guests together in a truly stunning setting.
