"We are delighted to introduce Amaracus and be part of Minthis," said Chef Dimitris."Here, we have created a dining experience that not only tantalizes the taste buds but also immerses guests in the vibrant local culture. With its inviting ambiance and expertly crafted menu, Amaracus embodies the essence of Minthis, its inspired by the local herbs and ingredients allowing guests to indulge in a memorable culinary journey."
The name Amaracus has a significant meaning for Minthis. It originated from Greek mythology, where a boy from Paphos held the prestigious position of royal perfumer in the court of King Cinyras, his father. One fateful day, Amaracus stumbled and fell while carrying a collection of potent ointments, causing them to mix and create an alluring scent. In order to keep this scent immortal, Amaracus was transformed into the amarakon herb, also known as marjoram or wild oregano. This fragrant plant was considered sacred to the goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite, and was known for its sweet aroma. The myth compliments the resort philosophy, which is inspired by the surrounding nature, and which is bountiful with wild oregano.
The restaurant's elegant interior design reflects the relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere of the Mediterranean. Warm earth tones, carefully selected furnishings, and soft lighting create an inviting space where guests can unwind and savor their dining experience. The large opening bar one side and the folding glass doors on the other revealing a large terrace, provides an al fresco option for diners to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and mild-Mediterranean evenings.
Amaracus is not only a culinary destination but also an integral part of the immersive lifestyle experience offered by Minthis. Guests can indulge in a range of activities and amenities, including spa treatments at the ground-breaking destination wellness Spa as well as recreational facilities such as golf, hiking and cycling.
