The 5-star St Raphael Resort is a sprawling hotel and marina on a large Blue Flag beach on the outskirts of the cosmopolitan town of Limassol, a popular tourist area and centre of the Cyprus wine industry. It’s also well located for the island’s main port, as well as its two airports - Pafos airport 45 minutes away, and Larnaca airport which is 30 minutes away.
The hotel’s Serenity Spa features eight treatment rooms, a manicure/pedicure room, massage rooms, water-jet massage bed, private sauna, steam bath and solarium and a relaxation room where you can enjoy fresh fruit and drinks before and after your treatments.
The hotel’s 272 rooms and suites all offer flat-screen TVs, PlayStations, tea and coffee-making facilities, well-appointed bathrooms with shower and bath.
The hotel is located between two spectacular archaeological sites built on cliff tops with sea views - the ancient city kingdom of Amathous to the east and Kourion to the west; excavations from both are on show in museums worldwide, such as the Louvre in Paris and the Met in New York. Limassol old town is a fascinating place to stroll, home to other attractions such as Limassol Castle and various art galleries. There’s also plenty to keep guests entertained at the hotel, such as a fitness centre, table tennis, two outdoor fresh-water swimming pools, and beach volleyball to name a few.
The hotel offers eight dining establishments. To name a few, the Sailor’s Rest Lounge Bar Restaurant by the St Raphael Marina serves a mix of international dishes with views over the Mediterranean; while the Octagon Restaurant which has been completely renovated, serves a full American buffet breakfast, as well as international buffet lunch and dinner.
