Intercontinental Hotels Group has opened what it says is “the first and only branded boutique hotel in Cyprus”.

The 40-room Hotel Indigo Larnaca is located five minutes from the city’s airport, within walking distance of the beach, and close to the church of St Lazarus.

The property has seen two “traditional Cypriot beach homes” converted into a new hotel, with bedrooms offering “a modern yet contemporary feel by merging raw concrete with locally-made, brightly-coloured traditional textiles and light wooden furnishings”.

Features include a rooftop pool and Kampana pool bar, as well as regional inspired Avli restaurant and Oinotelia wine bar.

Rooms also feature “spa-like rain showers, with brushed concrete flooring and original Cypriot tiling”, and balconies fitted with traditional Mediterranean yellow shutters, “mimicking the sunset amongst the surrounding mountains”.

The Hotel Indigo brand launched in 2004, and currently has around 120 properties across over 15 countries, including recent openings in Madrid and Brussels. There are a further 104 hotels in the brand’s pipeline, scheduled to open in the next three to five years.

Last month IHG opened its latest Hotel Indigo property in Europe, with the unveiling of a 62-room hotel in the Italian city of Verona.

Formerly known as the Grand Hotel Verona, the property has been renovated and rebranded as the Hotel Indigo Verona – Grand Hotel Des Arts.
