Intercontinental Aphrodite Hills Resort is an award-winning integrated 5-star luxury sports, leisure and real estate resort just outside Paphos, Cyprus - making it one of the most prestigious holiday destinations in the Mediterranean. The word ‘hotel’ doesn’t really do justice to this place.
The reason is simple it’s actually part of the Intercontinental Aphrodite Hills Resort which is almost a town in itself. You’ve got a village-style square filled with restaurants and shops and even an 18-hole championship golf course at your beck and call.
The whole resort sprawls over a picturesque slice of coast 15 kilometres from Paphos. It overlooks the Mediterranean and the place that inspired its name – Aphrodite’s Rock. There’s also a sandy cove within striking distance, with a hotel-run bus to take you there and back.
The Hotel itself is rather impressive. Everything is arranged around a huge lagoon pool, which wends its way through terraces dotted with palms and rockeries. Close by, there’s a second cascading pool, a children's pool and Yfestos - an open-air restaurant with à la carte snacks. The buffet breakfasts and themed dinners, meanwhile, come courtesy of the Eleonas. Tucked around terracotta-washed arches and olive trees, it’s as pretty as they come. And for a change of flavours, there are three à la carte restaurants inside the hotel, too.
Facilities-wise, you’re spoilt for choice. The highlight is the resort’s Retreat Spa. Styled like a monastery, its stonework archways lead to a string of Greco-Roman heat rooms and a Turkish bath topped with a coloured glass dome. There’s even a tepidarium here where you can lie back on heated loungers to complete your detox.
When it comes to keeping the little ones happy, meanwhile, you've got the likes of mini-golf, a playground and a kids' club. Teens are catered for, too, with activities and games.
The rooms at Intercontinental Aphrodite Hills Resort are special, too. They vary from the standard to junior suites, so there's plenty of space for all the family. Finished in contemporary whites and creams, they’re impeccably turned out with all the in-room extras. Particularly nice touches include hand-carved wooden furniture and prettily embroidered Cypriot bedcovers.
The InterContinental Aphrodite Hills Hotel offers facilities for businessmen, families and children, including a Kids' Club, Business Center, Babysitting services, health club, tennis courts, swimming pools and free transportation to the nearby cove.
