The Larnaca Tourism Board (Etap) on Thursday announced the arrival of another renowned hotel chain, Indigo of the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG).
Indigo is one of the biggest boutique hotel chains in the world, the organisation said in an announcement.
“Hotel Indigo® Cyprus-Larnaca is the first unit this hotel colossus will operate in Cyprus.”
Etap said the development of this new “quality tourist facility” coincides with its own goal to preserve and highlight Larnaca’s special character by utilising the town’s listed buildings since the new hotel will be combining the development of an old residence with a new building.
Indigo chain is the third hotel chain to express interest in Larnaca following the arrival of hotels by Radisson Blu and Βest Western brands.
“It is now a self-evident fact that Larnaca has entered for good the tourism game by attracting the interest of both investors and travel agents,” Etap said.
Over the last three years, nine new hotel units have been built in the Larnaca district with a total capacity of 614 beds.
The latest addition is Hai Hotel in Laiki Yitonia which is the traditional quarter of Larnaca city. The hotel in question also combines the development of an old building with a new one, the tourism board said.
In 2020, at least seven new units are expected to operate, mainly within the limits of Larnaca Municipality and Oroklini, including Radisson Beach Resort Larnaca, Solaar Boutique Hotel & Spa, Samirana Boutique Hotel, Alexia City Hotel, Hotel Indigo Cyprus-Larnaca and Executive Residency Zenon by Best Western.
Etap congratulated Sunnyseeker Hotels and Quality Group for their successful efforts to attract international chains and to upgrade Larnaca’s hotel infrastructure in general.
