Londa, Limassol: hotel of the week

We’re stretched out on a sunlounger, soaking up some rays. We’ve got ice-cold cocktails to our right and the whispering sea to our left. We’re happy, we’re relaxed, we’re dreaming about Cypriot feasts and big round beds, and we wake up… in Smith HQ, at our computers. Never mind eh? Our hotel of the week, Londa, is the beach boutique we lust for…

Style Subtle, soothing and smart
Setting Medside Limassol

Why this week? The weather in Cyprus is already pretty peachy and looks set to continue until late in the year (good for canny Smiths avoiding stays during the summer holidays). There’s a Londa hotel offer to take advantage of – if you’re a Smith member: 25 per cent off five-night stays with the Londa Lifestyle package. This indulgent deal includes welcome cocktails, a champagne breakfast, a candlelit dinner, a 55-minute massage each and other perks.

Our favourite bits? We love the infinity pool overlooking the sea, the restaurant’s traditional Mediterranean recipes, the Caprice Bar’s cocktails and DJ (expect jazz nights and other events in summer) and the Honeymoon Suite, whose charms include a huge round bed, a Jacuzzi, a living room and balcony.

Mr & Mrs Smith say ‘Having parked under the towering palms flanking the driveway, we ascended the fragrant steps lined with geometrically manicured herb beds and were blasted with a ravishing view of the ground floor of the Londa. Clean lines and glass walls lead the eye through the stylish bar to the mirror-smooth ultramarine sea beyond. Breathtakingly Zen…’

You say ‘Great place; must make sure that you check out the good Cypriot wines in the bar… However, as is the way of the world, make sure that you get up early to bag a sun lounger (7am worked for us).’

Weeks before first joining Mr & Mrs Smith's editorial team as assistant editor, Sarah Jappy was interviewing hot blondes in Copenhagen for a virginmedia.com city guide. Having penned food porn for Blue Tomato and fashion features at Itchy City Guides, Sarah was delighted to bring an appetite for alliteration and expert opinion on hot topics including: the marzipan to pastry ratio of the perfect almond croissant; which shop-bought hollandaise sauce generates the best eggs benedict and where to source the capital’s most drool-worthy moules marinière. That's not to even mention her 12 years of Irish dancing prowess. She has now moved Down Under to head up Smith's Melbourne editorial team.

    Any pictures of the infinity pool in its entirety (i.e the infinity part)? That must’ve been an awesome view!
