Parklane, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Limassol officially inaugurates in Cyprus

Marriott International’s The Luxury Collection has launched Parklane, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Limassol in the stunning sun-drenched island of Cyprus.

Marking Marriott’s very first property in the country, the new hotel is owned and operated by Parklane Hotels Limited. It represents Cyprus’ first international luxury-branded resort.

Parklane, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Limassol is adorned by 100,000m2 of verdant landscaped gardens, complimented by a 300-metre glistening beach. 

Upon arrival, the resort welcomes guests via a picturesque lane that snakes through a lush grove of locally grown olive, citrus and palm trees. Its 274 beautifully appointed guestrooms and suites, designed by Harrods Interiors, promote bright, open-plan living with a fresh and contemporary finesse. Many rooms feature terraces with commanding views of the Mediterranean Sea and the rolling Troodos mountains beyond. Meanwhile, the 52 suites, some set over two storeys with sleek architectural flair, entice with teak-decked private pools.

For those seeking privacy and tranquility, Parklane, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Limassol boasts an adults-only wing comprising 16 Lifestyle Suites and a swimming pool. Each suite comprises expansive views of the sparkling Mediterranean Sea, with some also featuring private pools.

“We are excited to put Cyprus on the map for our Global Explorers as our newest property in the region,” Anthony Ingham, global brand leader, The Luxury Collection illustrated. “With a deep-rooted history that today can still be experienced by visiting iconic landmarks such as the medieval Limassol Castle, paired with modern architecture and cultural happenings, the vibrant coastal city of Limassol is one of the most up and coming destinations in the world today.”

Guests are sure to be enthralled by the variety of cuisine offered at the resort, from fine dining to light poolside bites. Fresh fish and local seafood from the surrounding region are at the heart of the innovative menus, which are full of native flair. Guests can enjoy Cypriot grill dishes made using a traditional wood-burning oven and barbecue pit. 

Parklane, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Limassol’s hallmark experience for guests seeking an uplifting retreat is the 3,000m2 Kalloni Spa. This luxurious space takes its cues from the sea, from its two outdoor and two indoor seawater pools to its relaxing and revitalising Thalassotherapy menu. The utterly indulgent treatments draw on seawater and the marine environment for their many benefits to health and wellbeing. The spa is also collaborating with a number of brands such as VOYA, which focuses on organic, seaweed-based beauty products and treatments, and Biologique Recherche for its clinical and raw ingredient treatments.

Additional spa features include a barbershop where treatments are tailored using Gentlemen’s Tonic products, a Carol Joy hair salon and a state-of-the-art Parkfit gym.

For junior guests, the spirit of adventure is very much alive at Parklane, where a pirate ship with water jets and slides and a two-storey princess castle crown the enviable 3,000m2 Park Kidz. A dedicated restaurant and mini football pitch will keep young guests entertained when not splashing in the pool or playing games at the beach. Aspiring footballers can also enroll at the seasonal Parklane Football Escapes academy, which offers an exceptionally rare opportunity to train with former international football stars during school holidays. Weeklong courses will be available for children aged between five and 15 to train for up to two hours a day, in complete personalised kit, under the guidance of UEFA licensed coaches and English Premier League football stars including Rio Ferdinand and Bobby Zamora.

Additionally, the resort is also home to three tennis courts, three outdoor and one indoor swimming pools and a PADI diving centre, with horse riding and golf courses close by.

Parklane, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Limassol’s corporate offering has undergone a multi-million-dollar investment, elevating the resort’s credentials as a highly desirable destination for meetings and events throughout the year, as well as a leading venue for Cyprus. Ultra-modern facilities include seven meeting rooms that can be converted into 11 professional conference spaces. The 800m2 Diamond Ballroom, complete with a built-in stage, can hold up to 600 people, be split into two sections and tailored to meet the requirements of any large event.
