Cyprus hotel transformed into luxury $ 2 million residence
One of the best-known boutique hotels on the coast of Limassol, Cyprus, transforms into seaside residences.
The five-star Londa hotel will be transformed into 29 luxury homes designed by the NMA architecture firm and the Parisian interior designer Thierry Lemaire. Two, three, and four bedroom options are available, each with stunning sea views, private hot tubs or pools, sun terraces, and direct beach access.
The owners also have exclusive use of a spa for residents, which includes a sauna, hammam and gym, as well as an indoor swimming pool flanked by a 35-meter-long terrace. Other facilities include a cellar, storage space, private parking, and conference and meeting rooms.
The apartments are set in 1,000 square meters of private gardens and are surrounded by over 450 square meters of vertical gardens, making it one of the greenest developments in Limassol.
Londa is located in a quiet enclave in the city’s so-called tourist area, which means it is within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and other amenities. Limassol is located on the southern coast of Cyprus and offers all the characteristics of Mediterranean island life.
Lemaire’s Art Deco-inspired design for property interiors features floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the space with natural light. A discreet palette is enhanced with marble, wood, copper and gold, in reference to the Cypriot coast and the sun. The open-plan living spaces are outfitted with plush corner sofas, marble tables, and bespoke kitchens.
Smart home features have been integrated throughout the property including keyless entry and one-time security passwords for guests, integrated smart systems to control lighting, audio, shades and curtains, VRV heat pump air conditioning systems and rooftop photovoltaic panels that provide energy for all common areas.
“For almost 40 years Londa has provided luxury beach vacations and hosted politicians, presidents, celebrities and some of Cyprus’s most influential families,” said Matea Leko, Director of Marketing and Sales , Londa Residences.
“By transforming our hotel into a limited number of upscale residences with stunning sea views, we are maximizing the potential of this magnificent location. It honors the cultural monuments of Limassol and provides our future residents with tailor-made privacy and luxury for all the senses, in a place where the elite slept, dined and drank their morning coffee.
Delivery of the apartments is scheduled for summer 2023, with a guide price of 2 million euros ($ 2.3 million). They are already proving popular, with 30 percent of inventory reserved during the pre-launch phase. Londa Residences is also one of the only developments in Limassol which is exempt from VAT.
