Gracing the southern shores of sunny Cyprus, the GrandResort sits amid landscaped tropical gardens in the well-heeled Limassol district of Amathus. Its beachside location, 11km from the town centre, combines the best of both worlds, and you needn’t even leave the grounds thanks to the impressive pool with its gorgeous backdrop of the sea. Larnaca airport is 40 minutes by car, while Paphos airport is a one-hour drive. The Troodos Mountains are less than an hour away, and a range of attractions sit within easy reach.
Recently renovated, the Musses Spa is a highlight of any stay here. Nine treatment rooms and a team of experienced consultants mean you can choose from massages, facials, therapies and healing rituals for a quick pampering or a programme of total rejuvenation. There’s a hammam, Jacuzzi and sauna, and even a private spa suite with its own relaxation area and treatment rooms for that extra feeling of seclusion and escape.
Tastefully decorated in neutral tones, the rooms and suites at GrandResort come well-equipped with modern touches, from LCD TVs to free wi-fi and air-conditioning. Large balconies are furnished with pretty flower troughs and you can select from inland or sea views, either guaranteeing a bright and comforting option. A daily turn-down service, 24-hour room service and fully stocked mini-bars mean you are always well attended to.
With the sea just outside, beginners and seasoned enthusiasts alike will want to take to the water with a range of sporting options available. Kayaks, jet-skis and paddle boats are all available to hire, while scuba diving and powerboats are there for the more adventurous. Back on dry land, there are live music shows every night of the week at GrandResort, including a range of dancing and social events. A cinema holds movie nights – and, yes, there is popcorn!
Taste the flavours of Japan at restaurant Kyoshi Teppan Yaki, which features theatre-style cooking, or maybe at the dedicated sushi bar. During the day and night, Kyma Pool Restaurant always delivers with its fresh salads, snacks, buffets and grills, while the Ethnic Lounge has gorgeous garden views. A range of other top-notch restaurants mean you can be enjoying Asian, Italian and Greek – including the freshest fish – whenever you please.
