Londa looks set for Cyprus honour

The Londa, the new upscale contemporary boutique hotel in Cyprus on the
shores of the Mediterranean has been recognised by the World Travel Awards,
winning the award for Cyprus’ Leading Hotel. World Travel Awards aims to promote excellence in the travel and
tourism industry.  The Londa will receive the award at the European ceremony
in Newcastle this October in the North East of England.  The Londa, along
with other winners from the four regional awards, will be put forward for
their respective global categories, to be announced towards the end of this
year. The final event will take place on the Turks & Caicos Islands.

“We are delighted that the Londa Hotel has been recognised by the WTA”,
comments General Manager Mr Jochen Niemann.  “The Londa is independently
owned and recently benefited from a multi-million pound refurbishment,
re-opening in the summer of 2005. This is an acknowledgement of the efforts
of all the team here in Cyprus over the past two years. We have built a
regular clientele who enjoy our unique mixture of contemporary design,
Mediterranean atmosphere and sincere service.  The response from both Cyprus
and international guests has been exceptional.”


Designed by Italian design team Caruzzo Rancati from Milan, the Londa is a
modern and elegant hotel where sleek white marble has been used throughout
the entrance and lobby, accented with black wood pathways leading down to
the sea.  The highly unique style of the Londa shows influences from the
heritage of the island and from the Mediterranean including Cypriot lace,
antique filigree silver and local wood.  The mix of styles and lighting in
the lobby are all designed to highlight the view, emphasised by the huge
glass panels that maximise light into the building.



This discreet and refined designer hotel is quietly setting a new
fashionable standard for Limassol.  In the past dismissed as just an
expanded bustling fishing port, the changing face of Cyprus’s second city
with its exclusive shopping, vibrant nightlife and wealth of culture in an
agreeable climate is now attracting tourists from all over Europe and the
Middle East. 


The Londa is described as a ‘couture’ property to reflect the exceptional
design qualities and illustrates a level of service offered at the hotel,
meaning bespoke or tailored.  The service and experience is customised to
each individual, not ‘off the peg’.
