The Library Hotel and Wellness Resort
Nestling opposite the church in the village square (plateia) in Kalavasos, stands the beautiful 19th century stone mansion that has been converted into the Library Hotel and Wellness Resort. Step inside the front door and treat yourself to total relaxation of mind, body and soul.
The hotel is small, personal and secluded with eleven suites leading out onto the courtyard- each with its own character, luxurious furnishings and harmonious colours and each bearing the name of a different poet, thinker or writer. The suites have an intrinsic elegance with high ceilings and polished wood or mosaic floors, stylish marble bathrooms with Jacuzzi and balconies overlooking the gardens towards the coast or inland to the mountains. The hotel gets its name from its impressive library lounge with comfy chairs in front of the log fire, wooden bookshelves reaching the ceiling, filled with an eclectic collection of books on philosophy, culture and civilisation.
The Potamonde Wellness Baths in the hotel are styled to be soothing and relaxing and certainly the place to linger and feel your body relaxing as it responds to the wonderful treatments on offer which include mud steam and herbal baths - both treatments fragranced with healing Cypriot mountain herbs and a variety of messages including Swedish (with draping) aromatherapy and deep tissue. There are inch reducing body wraps (with a noticeable difference after just five sessions!) and wonderful facial masks that leave your skin feeling soft, supple and with a wonderful exhilarating glow.
There is a wonderful sun terrace close to the swimming pool with comfortable chairs and clever lighting making it the perfect place to linger at any time during the day over a light snack or during the evening with a drink, under the canopy of stars. Inside the hotel, the Mitos Mediterranean Restaurant has an attractive menu of organic Mediterranean dishes with a comprehensive wine list of local and international labels that complement the food perfectly.
The Library Hotel is the perfect choice for long weekends and longer holidays as it lies conveniently close to the archaeological treasures of Chirokitia, Tenta and Ancient Amathus, three kilometres from the cost and 30 minutes' drive from Limassol, Larnaca and Nicosia. The Library Hotel is also the stunning setting for all special celebrations including weddings for couples seeking somewhere extra special for that very special moment in their lives....
