A divine respite on the Mediterranean

In the classic Odyssey, Homer sings of how the goddess of love, Aphrodite, was once released from chains after one of those spats only the Olympian gods could have and sped straightaway to Cyprus, where she was anointed in oils, pampered in ways worthy of her and dressed in bejeweled gowns. Thus was born in the West the idea of a place where oils, herbs and other ointments, and the bountiful and light touches of goddesses provide a piece of heaven on earth. AMARA Spa lives up to this mythic legacy — its name is derived from the Greek word that means “everlasting” — offering a meticulously curated set of treatments, saunas, thermal areas, hair services, a nail bar, an ice fountain, sun terraces, an outdoor seawater infinity pool and more, all overlooking a breathtaking and panoramic view of the Mediterranean Sea just feet away.

The spa features original parts of Limassol’s ancient city walls, which were discovered when AMARA hotel was built, and they sit at its center. AMARA Spa’s intricate inlaid wooden doors and wall motifs are astounding, but never overwhelming. Light browns, cream and terracotta are woven throughout, a Mediterranean style mixed with classic Cypriot architectural touches that set off well the striking garden and abundant vistas of the turquoise sea on which it’s set. The staff members, expert and ever helpful, make you feel a part of the mythic tradition of Cyprus’ long and legendary history as the place where gods and humans alike turn for respite and heavenly indulgence.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The Limassol spa menu mirrors AMARA’s deep respect for nature and the healing powers of Cyprus’ indigenous essence.

  • The 12-treatment-room spa embraces the latest in wellness services, including a juice bar, color therapy beds and steam capsules.
  • Both innovative and luxurious, the Rose Diamond Facial begins with a back cleansing and massage and then moves onto a deep facial exfoliation using diamond dust and enzymes. It’s topped off with a lifting facial massage.
  • Before or after your treatment, lounge at the adults-only alfresco infinity pool. The pool’s seawater blurs into the horizon for a beautiful backdrop to your day of tranquility.
