Aphrodite Hills, Paphos

Aphrodite Hills

Nestled in the midst of a protected forest and overlooking the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea, the award-winning 5 star Aphrodite Hills Resort is unique and awe-inspiring. The luxurious 234-hectare Resort is magnificently positioned on two plateaux divided by a dramatic ravine and commands breathtaking sea views of the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love.

The award-winning resort plays host to a range of facilities and activities, all designed to keep the whole family entertained, invigorated and relaxed during your holiday. These include an award-winning PGA National Cyprus Golf Course, tennis academy, football academy, retreat spa, gymnasium, shops, restaurants, doctor's surgery, bank and bars, all in a traditional Cypriot setting.

The Aphrodite Hills village square is where all the facilities, activities and venues are on the resort. Events take place here regularly, including markets, dancing and local bands. Many events take place for the children also including open-air cinemas, live shows and musical productions. There are many more activities for children including a playground for both younger and older children plus an aerial rope and mini golf.

A regularly public bus service operates from the Resort to Paphos, also stopping at Aphrodite’s Rock. The bus stop is located at the Golf Club Car Park, opposite the Hotel.

The resort is conveniently situated approximately 16kms from Paphos International Airport and approximately 80kms from Larnaca Airport, very close to motorway links from both.

There are traditional villages nearby including Kouklia which is located to the west and is a quiet, traditional Cypriot village about a 10-minute drive from Aphrodite Hills. Kouklia offers good local restaurants and events in the summer all set in the tranquil surroundings of this sleepy enclave.

Within a 15 minute drive, you will reach the village of Pissouri which extends from the traditional village on the hillside down to the sheltered Bay with its clear blue sea. The beach at Pissouri is the proud recipient of a blue flag award and boasts a shoreline that extends for two kilometres. A handful of informal tavernas and restaurants offering a selection of local and international cuisine are found along the fringe of the sand and shingle beach.

A 15-minute drive west will bring you to the town of Paphos with its world heritage sites, modern shopping facilities and attractive harbour area.
