Eauzone at Almyra offers one of the most stunning views of Paphos castle, glorious sunsets and a backdrop of the sea. Combine this with delicious cocktails and superb live music and you have a winning combination.
The hotel is offering something special this summer for both guests and locals and after a packed opening a couple of weeks ago the idea has taken off.
During the warmer months, summer soirees on Saturday evening are held at the eauzone’s rooftop pool, great live music is provided by the house band and swimwear is optional, as many chose to admire the infinity pool rather than delve its depths.
Sunday Vibezzz from 7pm-10pm offer live DJs playing back to back and is a lovely way to wrap up the weekend.
The roof terrace view is commanding and as the sun slips away, wonderful projections light up one of the whitewashed walls next to the outdoor pool.
Drinks are not cheap, but what you would expect to pay for an evening spent at such a venue, and the quality and attention to detail is paramount.
Well spaces tables and chairs, banquette-style sofa seating, day beds, and bar stools and tables are best booked ahead. This is a stunning backdrop to watch a sunset, and it starts to fill up around 9pm.
Make sure you eat before you arrive, possibly at the hotel’s Ouzeria which emanates Cyprus charm and delicious traditional fayre with a twist, as the Eauzone menu serves up bite sized offerings such as prawn tempura with chilli mayonnaise and mini spring rolls with hoi sin dipping sauce, as well as ‘sharing platters’, and they won’t fill you up. However, they are a welcome accompaniment to anything you drink.
There is something rather opulent about a visit here, the atmosphere is relaxed, but with a touch of glamour and staff are friendly and attentive without being obsequious.
Alcoholic drinks are created with flair and a good selection of wines is also available. If you opt for a non-alcoholic drink, the virgin rose petal mojito is delicious.
Gin o’ clock, as it’s called, is held on Saturday from 8pm-11pm and on Sundays from 7pm-10pm. All the usual suspects, Gordons, Bombay Sapphire and
Hendricks are available with all sorts of ‘enhancers’ such as rosemary, cucumbers, thyme, celery and of course, lemon. Special house infusions are also served and priced at €9.
If you’re looking for somewhere to while away summer weekend evenings, Eauzone is a great place to do so and provides the right sprinkling of glamour and luxury. Either as a treat night or a regular outing, weekend evenings at Eauzone should be added to your summer diary.
