Where to stay in Cyprus
A gorgeous Mediterranean island with more than meets the eye
Visitors taking breaks in Cyprus will always remark on the intense beauty of the island, whether it's the beautiful sandy beaches or the quaint hillside villages. But it needn't be confined as a holiday destination for sun-worshippers alone. With a long and twisting history, Cyprus has seen influxes and cultural influences from groups as varied as the Greeks, the Turks, and the British and even still boasts castles from the time of the Crusades.
Take advantage of Cypriot diversity
Cyprus may be divided into two parts, Greek and Turkish, but passing between the two is easy and hassle-free for travellers, allowing you to sample not one, but two distinct cultures (as well as many of the things they have in common, like wonderful eastern Mediterranean cuisine.) Contrasts are a constant theme throughout the island, and mean that wherever you stay, there's always something for you to do. Paphos may be a popular tourist destination for British visitors, with pubs and bars to cater for them, but just around the corner you can find one of the richest archaeological sites in the world.
Chilling out or partying all night
Yet another example of the diversity of Cyprus comes in the nightlife around the island. Towns like Limassol and Nicosia are replete with narrow streets forming a maze of local restaurants and bars offering the best in local produce. But while Cyprus represents the perfect destination for getaways for anybody wanting to lie on a beach with a good book, before retiring to a local taverna for a nice meal and a few drinks before bed, the island also has another side. Ayia Napa has become synonymous with partying, where the best DJs from around the world congregate to unleash their music to revellers all night.
Regardless of whether it's culture, beaches, clubbing or dining that interests you, Cyprus is a place to fit any and all tastes. Our regular exclusive offers on luxury holidays, such as at specially-selected five-star hotels and spa getaways throughout the island, are sure to give you the satisfaction you're looking for from your trip.
