The success story of the project that changed the face of Limassol
Undoubtedly one of Cyprus’ greatest success stories
Officially launched in 2010, the completion of this landmark €400 million integrated project and ground-breaking achievement for the island and the city of Limassol, has been achieved. The recent delivery of its final phase apartments at “Castle Residences”, the crown jewel of the superyacht Marina, signifies the end of the project’s development and the maturity of a remarkable success story for Cyprus.
The Mediterranean’s most exciting new superyacht destination
The project combines residential and commercial developments, together with outstanding marina facilities that are home to yachts ranging from between 8m – 110m in length. There are 650 berths, 211 luxury apartments and 74 beautiful villas with private mooring or direct access to the beach. To date, the Marina has celebrated over €500 million in property sales with over 90% already sold, 50 nationalities of buyers, more than 7,000 yacht arrivals since its opening, including nearly 300 of the world’s biggest and best superyachts, and over 4,000 daily visitors in the dining and shopping area. The iconic project has changed the national landscape for a broad range of sectors and is a leading example of the scope of our capabilities.
Comprising a unique living on the sea lifestyle, the project includes an exciting range of exceptional cafes and restaurants, luxury designer boutiques, shops, gym and spa, and an unparalleled repertoire of cultural events, exhibitions, and concerts. This unique blend of high-end retail, dining and entertainment options is what makes Limassol Marina one of the most visited destinations in the region. On a daily basis, the project hosts thousands of locals and tourists, who enjoy the Marina’s full-service offering.
Successful completion of the final phase
Over a decade after its highly anticipated launch, the development of the island’s first superyacht marina has been concluded. Limassol Marina’s final phase, the unique apartments on the sea at “Castle Residences”, have been completed and handed over to their owners. Surrounded by water, the cluster of luxurious homes offers apartments and duplexes with uninterrupted views of the sea, the marina, and the coastal city of Limassol. Set on a private island and accessed by a bridge, they are located just steps away from the beach, in close proximity to the development’s luxury dining, shopping and leisure facilities. More than 70% of the Castle Residences apartments have been sold establishing Limassol Marina as one of the most prestigious addresses in Cyprus and the wider Mediterranean region, to live.
The remaining 4 out of 74 ready-to-move-in villas on the sea, are three and four-bedroom villas with private berths for luxury yachts up to 20m attached to their garden. All property residences benefit from 24-hour security, property management, concierge, and rental services. These last available units are an integral part of an iconic landmark for the island and the changing face of Limassol. It is the only development offering a “living on the sea” lifestyle in ready-to-move-in apartments and villas built on the water. Prices for the available villas with private berth(s) start from €3,9 million and remaining Castle Residences apartments, surrounded by water, start from €2 million.
