How can you describe Cyprus – the birth place of the Goddess of Love in a few words? A first try would sound like this: a luxury place in an exotic setting filled with ancient history, where you get after a short flight, with 5-star hotels, paradisaical beaches, appetizing dishes and wonderful people. Cyprus – a Mediterranean treasure coast. Cyprus delights the tourists with its dream beaches, luxurious locations and plenty of interesting activities. The island has all the makings of an exotic destination at affordable prices.
But let’s see what we can do in Cyprus for starters!
The ultimate luxury spa and relaxing.
Most of the Cyprus hotels offer a wide range of spa treatments designed to remove stress, tone the body and rejuvenate the spirit. From massage sessions of 30 minutes which relaxes your tired feet after a day out or a complete body care session, including exfoliation, Swedish massage, hydrotherapy, you can get all the services that can cross your mind. Couples can get together for facial or body treatment or massage. And for a romantic evening, the couples can try hydrotherapy baths in order to get rid of stress. As a post-therapeutic advice: make sure you moisturize after spa sessions – drink a glass of water or a cup of herbal tea and do not expose yourself to the sun for several hours after the facial treatment; Cyprus is a Mediterranean country and the sun is very hot especially during summertime.
Charter yachts in Cyprus will turn your vacation into an unforgettable experience. You can easily rent a yacht from the operators offering this service in Limassol or Paphos; you can even organize parties on the yacht for family and friends while sailing off the coast of Cyprus. If you’re in search of romantic locations, starting from the old port of Limassol, you’ll find plenty of wonderful places to drop the anchor and take advantage of a glass of champagne watching the spectacular sunset, or enjoy a continental breakfast served on the deck, far from the shore. The yachts can be rented for longer periods (one week, for example), if you want the delight to last longer.
If you’re keen to see as many places as possible without halt, you could try a helicopter flight. If you’re not afraid of heights, go ahead and plan a flight during which you can admire the astounding views that cannot be seen otherwise, but up in the air. And if you want even more luxury, spoil yourself with a limo ride from the airport to the hotel. You will find a lot of providers, from limousine renting companies that will transfer from the airport to your hotel, to companies that offer touristic limousine tours throughout the country.
If what you have read above still has not convinced you to book a ticket for a holiday in Cyprus, we have other arguments: Cyprus has some of the most beautiful beaches, where you can spend a relaxing afternoon, reading the novel that you have been planning to start reading for quite a while. If you’re staying in a luxury hotel in Paphos, here are some beaches that you should try. Faros beach, dotted with limestone rocks is located in the north of the island and is a marvel in itself. Little further, in the Gulf Kissonerga area, there it is a quiet beach bordered by banana plantations, where you can spend an afternoon of relaxation and calm. Going further up north, the Coral Bay area is famous for its sandy beaches. And if you’re tired of the hot sun during the day, at night after a romantic dinner at the hotel, you can go for a walk on the beach bathed in moonlight.
Cyprus is a place full of history, so during your vacation here, you can get acquainted with the culture of the place. Limassol hosts two castles, Kolossi Castle, which dates from the thirteenth century and Limassol Medieval Castle, in whose chapel Richard the Lion Heart got married in 1911. Visit the town of Paphos and admire the Roman architecture. In the western part of Kato Paphos impressive Roman mosaics were discovered in 1962, dating for more than 2000 years. Here, durinb the hot summer months, locals and tourists alike can attend participate in orchestra performances held at the Roman Odeon Theatre.
These are just some of the wonders and luxuries that a holiday in Cyprus can offer you. It can be an unforgettable experience if you choose a cozy hotel and activities to match.
