Almyra is currently closed for an extensive renovation encompassing all guest rooms and suites and the Lobby. Each room will receive a spacious new shower stall lined with Italian Carrara marble. Other upgrades include sound-insulating doors, smart TVs, refitted closets, and sleek brass lighting. New armchairs and chaises longues will be upholstered in tones of blue and purple with white piping. In keeping with the nautical theme, photographs of Pafos harbour by local artist Michalis Kouloumos will decorate the walls. In the Lobby, a dome-shaped Scandinavian light fixture will greet you at the entrance, while the area near the fireplace will be enhanced with a simple chandelier of three suspended rings. Aeras will receive a new colour palette: purple curtains, tabletops of white marble with blue veins, royal blue chairs, and brass ceiling lights define the restaurant’s new look. The furnishings throughout the Lobby will be replaced. All furnishings are designed specifically for Almyra and are crafted by local artisans from oak and olive wood. The refurbishment is curated by French designer Joëlle Pléot, who has played a key role in earlier phases of development for the hotel. Almyra is the only member of the Design Hotels consortium in Cyprus. The hotel’s mid-century modern architecture features horizontal lines, simple materials such as poured concrete, sheet glass, and stone, and a terraced approach to siting the structure within the existing landscape. The current renovation will complement Almyra’s aesthetic while enhancing the guest experience. The refreshed Almyra will debut on 1 March 2020.
