The Luxury Refurbished in white marble and black wood by Milanese design firm Caruzzo Rancati, the 68 rooms at Londa Hotel overlook the Mediterranean Sea, the Troodos Mountains, and/or the port city of Limassol, a former medieval fishing village thats home to a lively 11-day carnival in February and March. Throughout the year, scene-seeking Cypriots and resort guests alike flock to the Londas sea-view terrace (pictured) and outdoor poolside bar, with its DJ and dance floor; come wind-down time, hedonists of all stripes can choose from over 50 spa treatments.
The Value Through the end of April, get 17 percent off the normal rack rate of $304/night (a savings of about $52/night) when reservations are made and paid for at least 30 days prior to arrival date. In addition, ShermansTravel.com readers get a 15 percent discount on all spa treatments that are booked in advance.
The Catch Though daytime temps are pleasant (in the high 60s), theyre not quite warm enough to factor in swimming or water sports on island beaches.
