Island Life: Cyprus
Cyprus is able to impress even the most demanding and sophisticated travelers.
Perhaps the prospect of a holiday in Cyprus no longer delights a sophisticated tourist, however, if you know the right places, this island nation can impress even the most demanding travelers.
There are three good reasons to go to Cyprus in the spring. Firstly, instead of the gray sky and dank weather, bright sun and a riot of colors are waiting for you here: in April the island is buried in greenery and flowers, and the temperature outside the window approaches + 30 ° C. Secondly, the holders of a Russian passport do not need to make any efforts to obtain a visa. And thirdly, you don’t need to fly to the ends of the world to completely change the situation and how to relax. Four Seasons Limassol Cyprus, which is considered one of the most luxurious hotels in the world, will take care of this.
Located on the first line, Four Seasons Limassol Cyprus Hotel is ideal for families and couples looking for privacy. For the latter, the hotel has a so-called "adult zone" where children are not allowed to enter. Here adults can swim in the pool or listen to live music in the bar, enjoying each other's company.
Families with young travelers will also not be deprived of attention - they have many pools, including water slides. The hotel also has a diving school and a kids club, where kids, together with experienced teachers, draw, sculpt and play.
Gourmet There are 5 restaurants at your disposal, and it’s rather difficult to name one of them the best. In the Greek Mavrommatis (a branch of Paris), the main emphasis is on Mediterranean cuisine. For example, here you can taste Dolmades - minced meat with rice wrapped in grape leaves, or Kleftiko dish, which takes 9 hours to cook.
Rooms with Sea or Royal Suite with Private Pool — Four Seasons Apartmentsfor every taste and budget.
Book tables in Italian Vivaldi and Chinese Seasons Oriental in advance - there are too many who want to get there. But you will not stay hungry anyway - the hotel constantly hosts gastronomic festivals. For example, we found Chocolate Week, when international chefs with a big name competed for the title of best pastry chef. During the “Week”, we were happy to taste their culinary masterpieces in the Colors confectionery.
It is nice that, unlike other hotels marked "all inclusive", the local breakfasts and dinners are constantly surprising in their diversity. At your disposal are always fresh vegetables, fruits, meat, fish, olives and olives, all kinds of cheeses (be sure to try fried halumi cheese!), Dried fruits - believe me, in a week of rest you will not have time to test half!
There is a small chapel on site where you can pre-book a wedding ceremony. And then celebrate the wedding with friends in one of the gourmet restaurants and spend a honeymoon traveling through the ancient colorful towns of the island.
At the very blue sea Of course, the main purpose of a trip to Cyprus is the Mediterranean Sea. When you stand barefoot in the sand and look at the turquoise water that stretches to the horizon, you understand that it was worth coming here just for the sake of this moment. If you are not afraid of the cold, be sure to take a swim - the water temperature in April is about + 20 ° C, which by our standards is not so small. And if you don’t dare, just close your eyes, inhale the sea air deeper and try to remember your sensation. Believe me, on gloomy days this sunny memory will be the best cure for the blues.
TIME FOR YOURSELF Four Seasons is the only Shiseido spa not only on the island, but throughout the eastern Mediterranean. Here you can try the most diverse body and face care procedures that experienced specialists carry out on premium Japanese cosmetics. For those who want to truly relax, we recommend signing up for the exclusive Serenity body and scalp treatment, specially developed for Four Seasons. Japanese head and shoulder massage, which quickly relieves you of tension and gives new strength. The spa menu is not inferior in volume to a good book, so every day you can pamper yourself with a new procedure.
WHERE TO GOIf you want variety, rent a car and go to the side of Paphos, to the beach, where, according to legend, the sea goddess Aphrodite came out of the foam. They say that if you take courage and swim around two huge stones standing in the sea, you will gain eternal youth and beauty!
