A Bar Above the Rest: ‘Selene’ Magic at Amavi

When the Amavi, the first of a line of hotels under the Made for Two Hotels brand by Kanika Hotels & Resorts, first opened its doors by the stunning Paphos shores earlier this year, we envisioned that it would become one of the most talked-about couples-only hotels in the Mediterranean; an idyll of luxury for discerning love birds looking for a dreamy holiday by picture-perfect palm-fringed shores.

Fast forward to the present day, and it’s not just the name ‘Amavi’ that has captured the attention of both locals and international travellers, but also, the inspirational and exceptionally romantic Selene Cocktail Bar, aptly named after the Greek Goddess of the Moon.

As night falls and a blanket of stars envelops the Selene Cocktail Bar, the atmosphere transports you into a world far from the everyday, while the mercurial Selene traps you in an everlasting moment of bliss as you slip into a perfect state of togetherness. The unique romantic ambience and interior is accentuated by an inspirational backdrop; walls are adorned with fine contemporary modern artwork by the famous fine artist Savvas Georgiades.

Once you kick back with your loved one in the plush seating, simply select your drink of choice with the menu inspired by classic favourites and a real modern mixology twist, custom made by the renowned Cypriot mixologist, Costas Nicolaides, Managing Director of Alchemy Bartending School and Shaker Moving Bar.

Selene Bar, The Sixth Sense Cocktail

Cocktails for two are a special treat, especially designed for loved up couples. ‘The Sixth Sense’ has been created to indulge all five senses, delivering the sights, sounds, tastes, textures and aromas of heaven. Feel your twin flames burn bright while sipping on this Vodka infused with pear, shaken with fresh apple, fresh passion, aromatic Tonka blossom, almond syrup and fresh grapefruit. ‘Blood Moon’ is another Made for Two cocktail favourite, promising to eclipse the senses and create perfect harmony with a blend of rums infused with roasted sesame, mixed with blood orange liqueur, almond, orange and pineapple juice.

Care for a rum-based cocktail served in a foaming seashell? Indulge in the ‘Bath of Aphrodite’ in honour of this gorgeous deity, worshipped as the Goddess of love, beauty and pleasure. Or how about saying cheers in the company of a ‘Love Bird’? Our guests adore this signature cocktail served in a bird glass and made with Monkey 47 Gin, homemade aromatized honey, pink grapefruit and homemade pineapple puree.

All cocktails are made with premium local ingredients, and if, per chance, you fancy sipping on wine or another spirit, there is plenty to choose from on the menu. The Selene Bites will also go down a treat, whether you opt for the togarashi calamari with lime and wasabi mayonnaise or tantalize your taste buds with Umami style chicken skewers with Teriyaki sauce. And once your taste buds have been satiated in every way possible, the Selene Bar promises to add to the sensory journey, with chill-out romantic music to elevate the spirit, and a variety of events and musical entertainment planned in the near future to enrich the truly immersive experience!
