Sold-out event at Amathus Hotel
" a glass of 'R' Ruinart Champagne was served at the tables where everyone had taken their places "
Our second dining event of 2021 was held in the Grill Room Restaurant of the Amathus Hotel in Limassol.
Executive Chef Savvas Savva and his team prepared the menu. The wines were chosen by our Chancelier, Andreas Heracleous, our member Andreas Georgiou, who is Director of the Amathus Hotel, and me.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus restrictions, we did not have the usual Champagne reception. Instead a glass of ‘R’ Ruinart Champagne was served at the tables where everyone had taken their places in a socially-distanced way immediately on arrival.
High demand for places coupled with the restaurant’s limited capacity, meant that the event was reserved solely for members and their partners.

The hotel’s website states: “Nuzzled on the beach amidst the tropical gardens and the indigo sea, the newly renovated Amathus Luxury Hotel in Limassol is a serene sanctuary of world-class comfort. Let us inspire your visit.”
Our dinner certainly inspired everyone lucky enough to be able to participate!
We now look forward to upcoming events during the course of the year, leading to our Annual Chapitre which is scheduled to take place on Saturday, December 4th at the Four Seasons Hotel.
