Winter Sun Special: Limassol, Cyprus Posted on 18 Jan 16:14

January blues? Don’t worry we’ve got you! A bit of winter sun is all you need!

The City of Limassol in Cyprus is renowned for its long cultural traditions, with several museums and archaeological sites of interest..making it the perfect destination for a short break in the sun!

Run by the same family for over 50 years, The Alasia Hotel is set in a slightly quieter part of the city - a retreat from the rush into a haven of luxury and wellbeing! Being a self-proclaimed ‘home from home’ it comprises the timeless sophistication of a country house..with an à la mode twist! Just a short walk from the hotel you will find an extensive selection of local shops and markets. If you love Brunch as much as we do, we recommend heading to Mallon Glikis cafe for some of the best coffee in the vicinity and mouthwatering fruit platters! Soak up a slice of local culture at the Municipal Folk Art Museum, showcasing the typical architecture of old Lemesos and home to an array of ethnographical displays of traditional costume, furniture and agricultural tools.  

In the heart of the old town, overlooking the magnificent medieval castle, you will find the Kartello restaurant. Encapsulating the vibe of a warm and welcoming tavern, this restaurant offers a fusion of traditional and innovative meze dishes. Their well-known loukoumades make the perfect addition to any meal!

If you are packing light and need a few key pieces that will keep you looking chic all day long, the Titania printed challis midi skirt and the Jilian slub v-neck are your BFFs! Oh, and don’t forget your converse!

After a day of exploring the city, head back to the Alasia and treat yourself to one of the many indulgent spa treatments the hotel has to offer - we recommend the Mikiri Facial!

Limassol really does provide the best of both worlds and is sure to tend to that seasonal slump!
