Named after the ancient Greek word Amarantos meaning “everlasting,” the AMARA aims to offer its guests an exclusive and unique experience that we hope will create wonderful and permanent memories for you.
The AMARA’s graceful design, coupled with our dedication to service ensure that this five-star hotel will deliver its promise of unparalleled enjoyment.
Each of our 207 rooms offers a clear 180° panoramic view of the Mediterranean Sea. We provide carefully considered comforts that include a signature spa, restaurants run by Michelin-star chefs, an exclusive rooftop bar with breath-taking views, a grand Ballroom for special occasions and an impressive infinity-edge pool.
The AMARA is located close to the famous royal ancient kingdom of Amathus and we endeavor to be worthy of our proximity to this revered archaeological site. We are only a stone’s throw away from the busy cosmopolitan city of Limassol and cater to all manner of travellers, from the culturally-curious carefree couple, to the fun-seeking family, or to the business traveller in search of comfort and convenience.
Cyprus has a unique Mediterranean climate, enjoying 340 days of sunshine every year. Our island mixes traditional charm, modern landmarks and natural beauty. The city of Limassol is ideally located on the southern coast, offering both beautiful beaches in the summer and snowy scenery during the winter months. The perfect destination at all times of the year.
Each room has been meticulously conceived and thoughtfully designed to offer a unique way of life.
The AMARA has been designed to make you feel as if you own the horizon. The AMARA was built to be a living large-format panoramic camera that frames the horizon from the lobby to the bar, from the Michelin-star restaurants to your personal infinity-edged plunge-pool. Ever changing, ever astonishing, the horizon only stays put for as long as you look at it. Then it changes again, as you move from viewpoint to beauty point.
Our rooms start at a generous 45m2, by far the most spacious rooms in the whole of Cyprus. The two-bedroom Presidential Suite measures 230m2, making it a home away from home.
On top of beautiful sleeping areas with superb King or Queen-size beds, each room has an elegant seating area, a splendid en-suite marble bathroom, and a private balcony, providing beautiful views onto the landscaped gardens and from where you can contemplate the horizon of the Mediterranean.
We have paid an enormous amount of attention to detail in order to ensure that comfort and convenience are at the forefront of each guest’s stay. From insulated flooring that ensures peace and quiet, to atmospheric automated mood lighting, electrically motorised curtains, a wireless lighting control system and high quality variable speed cooling or heating, we have consistently considered your well-being.
AMARA’s design is inspired by Cyprus’ aesthetic and cultural heritage. Natural wood and marble vanity stations, woven benches, white shutter walls, blue watercolour-effect features, and sliding glass doors allow for an abundance of natural light that all unite to create a simple, subtle, and sublime sanctuary.
We offer a selection of interconnecting Deluxe Bedrooms, spacious Junior Suites, Deluxe Suites, Duplex Roof Top Suites with a private pool and Seafront Bungalows. The standout AMARA suite is the epitome of hedonism with the options of either one or two bedrooms.
Smooth modern lines, with curves and soft corners, the Deluxe Bedrooms have been conceived to evoke the gentle lapping of the sea on the shore below the room’s private balcony.
The colour scheme has touches of powder blue, green, and off-white for serenity. The room’s Queen or King-sized bed has driftwood-inspired side tables and vanity chest, a chaise longue, and a state-of-the-art smart TV (which can be paired with personal electronic devices). With an overall area spanning 45m2, the Deluxe Bedroom offers a large en-suite marble bathroom, complete with double washbasin, large bathtub, and standalone shower.
Deluxe Bedrooms are ideal for couples or young families, being able to comfortably accommodate three persons in total.
DELUXE SUITE (ONE OR TWO BEDROOM)
The AMARA’s Deluxe Suites have either one or two bedrooms. White-washed wood, elegant earthy tones, and chic soft furnishings combine to give a graceful atmosphere. The Deluxe Suites have oak parquet flooring and a large en-suite bathroom to ensure the utmost comfort and total convenience. The Deluxe Suites offer Queen or King-sized beds, a chaise longue, and a state- of-the-art smart TV (which can be paired with personal electronic devices), as well as automated mood lighting.
These suites are the ideal choice for travelling families (with the one-bedroom suite being able to accommodate two adults and two children, whilst the two-bedroom suite accommodates 4 adults and two children), or couples desiring sheer space for rest and relaxation.
The AMARA’s Junior Suites are a haven of simple charm and modern style. Composed of one bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, with a separate living and dining space, complete with guest bathroom and shower room, the Junior Suites make for an elegant retreat from everyday life. Whether you are relaxing on the sofa suite, or on the wide balcony with sun-loungers, or in the embrace of the Queen or King-size bed, guests will feel at home surrounded by the warm wooden décor, and soft pearly hues.
AMARA’s rooms and suites, a host of state-of- the-art electronic features enhance the Junior Suite experience, including calming automated mood lighting, USB ports, and flat screen smart TVs that can be paired with personal tablet and mobile phone devices.

ROOF TOP DUPLEX SUITE WITH PRIVATE POOL
A genuine refuge for rest and contemplation, this exclusive, adults-only, two-level suite is the epitome of true grace.
The Duplex suite has floor-to-ceiling windows, therefore totally illuminated with natural light. Its smooth lines and minimalistic decor is enriched with cream and oatmeal hues. The aim is to combine modern elegance and timeless charm. Measuring almost 110m2, the Roof Top Duplex Suite comes complete with a spacious en-suite bathroom with double wash basins, indulgent bathtub and separate shower stall, cosy lounge area with smart TV (that may be paired with personal electronic devices).

NOBU MATSUHISA – JAPANESE BRANDED RESTAURANT:
World-renowned Chef NOBU Matsuhisa and the AMARA, come together to set new standards in Cyprus’ culinary life with the introduction of Matsuhisa Limassol. The space, designed by David Rockwell, includes one-off signature pieces, combining rich hues and soft lighting to create an intimate and elegant atmosphere. Great emphasis has been placed on using local craftsmanship. Textures and materials have been chosen to reflect NOBU’s roots, while also celebrating the Limassol beachfront context. The overall design is sensitive, artful and as thought provoking as the cuisine.
Further to the Internationally celebrated Matsuhisa Beverly Hills and the celebration of nine other exclusive destinations around the world, Matsuhisa Limassol brings a highly contemporary vision of Japanese cuisine: a gastronomic encounter between Asia and Latin America – two cultures very dear to the heart of NOBU himself.
The extensive and original menu at Matsuhisa Limassol offers a unique Japanese-Peruvian culinary experience with a bespoke array of NOBU’s legendary signature dishes including: Salmon karashi su miso, Black Cod with miso, White fish dry miso, Rock shrimp tempura, New style sashimi and NOBU sushi and sashimi. A sophisticated menu of sake and exotic cocktails, designed to blend perfectly with NOBU’s culinary journey, complements all the dishes.
The AMARA eagerly anticipates launching its speciality Italian Ristorante Locatelli on account of our passion for the cooking of Italy.
The GIORGIO LOCATELLI is a revered London-based, Michelin-star, fine dining restaurant that will be opening its doors with a menu embodying Italy’s spirit of conviviality, whereby the heart of cooking is defined as the enjoyment of quality food in good company. From wood-fired oven pizzas and homemade pastas, to delectable desserts, guests will delight in dining al fresco, toasting to the charms of Italian tradition.
ARMYRA BY PAPAIOANNOU
The AMARA’s open-air fish tavern is a charming space, sound-tracked by the sound of the sea gently lapping on the shore.

THE DINING ROOM
Cyprus’ culinary culture is deeply woven into the fabric of the island’s identity. Use of the freshest of seasonal ingredients unites with recipes passed down over the generations to create openhearted food: an opportunity to share Cypriot culture with friends and family. Order a traditional meze, sip on a glass of local Maratheftiko or Xynisteri wine, and experience the joy of our island life.
A healthy breakfast is a delight in itself, but when taken in idyllic surroundings, it is the guarantee of a beautiful day.
From the aroma of freshly ground coffee and carefully baked breakfast delicacies, to the bustling continental air of the rich buffet and live cooking stations that provide wholesome “à la minute” dishes, the AMARA’s dedicated breakfast room, with nautically inspired light-features, has both indoor and outdoor seating. It is an uplifting space of calm, decorated in quiet olive tones, with touches of wood: an inimitable way to start your day.
Sometimes the comfort, convenience, and sheer cosiness of dining in the privacy of your bedroom are all a guest may desire. Whilst every effort is made to ensure that ambiance and allure are ever-present in AMARA’s dining outlets, the AMARA and its staff is more than happy to oblige. Our room service menu is rich and plentiful, delivered in a timely manner. Available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, an array of delectable dishes and well-chosen beverages are always available.
