Cyprus possesses all of the natural beauty you would expect from the birthplace of Aphrodite. Explore ancient ruins, enjoy sumptuous cuisine, or simply luxuriate in the beating Cypriot sun.
From its sun-drenched coastline peppered with happening party resorts, right through to the mystical inland, carpeted with sensual thyme and littered with awe-inspiring historic sites, Cyprus is an island of many wonders.
Enthralling scenery and sunny climes make luxury holidays a real treat wherever you travel to, and tailor-made tours give you ample opportunity to explore Cyprus’s hidden depths.
Those with Inspiring Travelhy feet looking to discover the delights of a city that spans history and culture won’t be disappointed with the capital, Nicosia. Divided just like the rest of the island by the Turkish and Greek boundary, it’s awash with museums and souvenir shops.
Over in the second biggest city, Limassol, stay in super-chic haunts like the Four Seasons Hotel Cyprus, and you’ll be immersed in a mishmash of winding cobbled streets lined with upmarket boutiques, and bordered by a shoreline dotted with luxury yachts.
If getting away from the hustle of everyday life is your main aim, areas like the sublime Pissouri Bay are sure to delight. Here you’ll find soaring cliffs, golden sands, world-class golf and sumptuous hideaways like the Columbia Beach Resort. Plus, you’re just a hop and a skip from fancy dining in Limassol and the historic sites of Paphos. The latter condenses the history of the Mediterranean across Roman and Greek ruins, along with the spectacular 16th century Paphos Fort.
Unspoilt natural beauty can be found in abundance in the little-known town of Polis. A jewel in the island’s north-west crown, Blue Flag beaches and relaxed cafés make this destination one seriously cool contender when it comes to out-of-this-world beach holidays.
Stop in luxury hotels like Anassa and you’ll have easy access not just to the charming streets and sandy shorelines of Polis itself, but the Troodos Mountains. For any active type, this is the area to be. Hiking, mountain biking and even winter skiing are an option in this part of the island. Not to mention the water sports around the coast itself.
With its UNESCO heritage sites, captivating coast and wild interior, everything about Cyprus calls to the senses and begs for discovery. If seriously luxurious tailormade holidays complete with sun, sea, sand, oodles of history and unparalleled natural beauty is your thing, this island will keep you coming back for more.
We always seek out the most stylish luxury destinations, and in Cyprus our team are spoilt for choice when it comes to stylish, sleek, world-class hotels. Whether you’re after a beach destination, a cultural haunt, or a chic hideaway to rest your head between striking out into the wilderness of the central island, we have something to suit. All you need do is tell us exactly what you want to get out of your dream holiday, and we’ll do the rest. Or, take a look at our Cyprus hotels and be inspired now.
