A five-star suite at a boutique hotel overlooking Ixia Bay – includes spa perks, sparkling wine and more
Raising the bar for boutique-style beach stays, this five-star charmer on the Aegean-facing Ixia Bay is the all-suite offshoot of the island’s swanky Amathus Beach Hotel. So it’s no surprise that it ticks the boxes for upscale luxury, uninterrupted sea views and glossy aesthetics.
Built in 2010, each of the 37 spacious suites claim wondrously sleek design and decor throughout; think bold pops of colour, wooden and marble flooring, lovely bathrooms with bathrobes, slippers and Bulgari toiletries, and in-room gadgetry galore. Most fabulous, though, are the ones that up the ante with a sizeable wooden sun terrace and private pool with Jacuzzi.
Sunny days can be spent lounging by the outdoor pool, being pampered to perfection at the huge spa, working out at the state-of-the-art gym, and sinking a fair few refreshing cocktails and smoothies at the bar. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head to the al fresco restaurant overlooking the sea for international cuisine and delicious Greek and Cypriot specialities.
