With glorious sea views, and nestled within 8 acres of manicured gardens, Almyra is a stylish, luxe property in Paphos. Although slightly larger than some of our other properties, the warmly attentive staff and private pockets of tranquility throughout will convince you you’re staying in a hotel half the size while enjoying the excellent facilities on offer. Be greeted by contemporary, minimalist décor – a real treat for design-lovers – and the spot regularly hosts exhibitions of local and international artists in its chic open-plan lobby.
You’ll be seriously impressed by what’s on offer: five pools, one of which is exclusively adult-only so you’ll be sure not to be disturbed as you kick back and unwind, and if you’re in need of a spot of pampering, enjoy organic treatments at the Almyraspa, overlooking the sun-dappled waters of the Mediterranean.
But Almyra is a great choice too for families who don’t want to compromise on luxury. Parents can order children’s essentials online in advance and your little ones will be fully taken care of at the creche and kids’ club, while the restaurants offer a comprehensive kid;s menu. There's also an indoor playroom as well as an outdoor adventure space.
We were founded forty years ago by my father, the late Alecos Michaelides. Each of our three hotels is much-loved and entirely distinctive in their own way - with its sleek and contemporary design Almyra is perfect for modern, travel-savvy guests. The Eauzone spa and pool area is my favourite pace in the hotel and is a world on its own. Enjoying the spectacular sunsets overlooking the castle with a quintessential Cypriot sundowner in hand is a gift from god!

A number of restaurants ensure everyone is well-catered for during your stay. Notios (open from March to December) serves an exciting blend of fresh Mediterranean flavours and ingredients with the purity and technical excellence of Japanese cuisine. Mosaics, Almyra’s signature restaurant, serves a seasonal menu of European classics and Asian specialities; ask for an al fresco table for a particularly romantic meal. If you’re after something a little more traditional, the sea-front taverna Ouzeri serves authentic Cypriot fare, always accompanied by a glass of ouzo.
Escape the children and head to the poolside haven of Eauzone, a poolside spot serving snacks and healthy nibbles from its bright and airy dining room. The adjacent terrace-bar serves a range of local beers and wines, as well as the traditional Cypriot sundowner of Mastiha liqueur, fresh basil and sparkling lemonade. Enjoy a chilled glass as you watch the sunset over the sea.
Children's menus are available at all of Almyra's restaurants apart from adult-only Eauzone at Almyraspa.
What we loved...
It’s very hard to pick but, if I absolutely have to, it would be the peaceful adult-only pool (sorry, kids) near the spa. The sun beds are big and super comfy and the infinity pool is so inviting. It’s the perfect spot to relax and top up your tan. There’s also a bar right next to it which serves some divine cocktails (the rose mojito is particularly good) – I found my own little slice of paradise right here.

A wide variety of bedrooms and suites are available, with many offering interconnecting options for families. The décor is sleek and contemporary, and bathrooms are elegantly appointed in marble tiling. Rooms have views over the gardens or the sea, with some featuring their own private terraces.
Sunbathe in the manicured gardens, or splash into one of the hotel’s five pools during the sultry summer months. The two main ones are nestled in the shade of gnarled olive trees; lined with black-slate, they're particularly striking and sea-facing. The little ones will enjoy the shallow freshwater splash area, while those looking for a spot of peace and quiet can head to the stunning infinity pool in the adult-only spa area; there’s an indoor pool as well should you fancy a dip during the chillier months. Pamper yourself at the Almyraspa, a sun-lit haven where organic and sea-based therapies and treatments are given against the backdrop of the Mediterranean.
Located in Paphos, Almyra is perfectly placed for those looking to explore the mystery and beauty of Cyprus. Take a boat trip to the Blue Lagoon, one of the most charming beaches on the island, or head to St George’s Island for its crystal-clear waters and spectacular diving spots. Paphos is a haven for history buffs, and if you’re interested in the ancient world you’ll want to make time to visit the Tombs of the Kings, a UNESCO-listed necropolis dating back to the 4th century BCE.
