Paphos’ rich heritage will be on display as never before, with guided tours, live performances and specialist exhibitions all being organised throughout the year. The theme of Paphos’ celebration of this accolade is one of unity and building hope for the future, with the city being transformed into ‘an open-air theatre of culture’.

Anassa – Latchi, Cyprus
In classical Greek, Anassa means ‘Queen’ and this impeccable luxury hotel is certainly fit for royalty. A jewel in the crown of Cypriot hospitality, Anassa boasts a prestigious hillside location overlooking the beguiling blue of the Mediterranean. The artistic design of the resort has the ambience of an exclusive ancient town, surrounding fragrant gardens and a charming village square boasting its own Byzantine chapel. But this Queen reigns supreme with more than just good looks; Anassa’s beauty extends to every aspect of this five-star hotel. Dining at Anassa is a pleasure and revelation, with four farm-to-fork silver service restaurants inspiring freshness for every palette. The hotel’s children’s club provides peace of mind for parents while the inspired ‘Baby Go Lightly’ programme provides every essential newborns and babies might require during their stay. Anassa’s royal kingdom is yours to enjoy.
Annabelle – Paphos, Cyprus
The coastal city of Paphos is so rich in Roman and Greek history that it boasts a place on the UNESCO list of cultural and natural treasures of the world. Even Paphos’ name is inspired by mythology, being derived from the son of Pygmalion, who sculpted a likeness of Aphrodite from ivory, which was brought to life by the Goddess of the Calm Seas, Galatea. Similarly, our featured luxury hotel, Annabelle is brought to life with exceptional hospitality and a passionate commitment to providing ‘luxury for the soul.’ Set within six acres of lush landscape gardens and boasting a beachfront location, Annabelle is the essence of unpretentious elegance. We recommend the Artemis Suite for its awe-inspiring views from the private terrace, while the Studio Suite with Private Plunge Pool is the ideal place to cool off in the sizzling sun. Additionally, Annabelle’s position as the hostess with the most is defined in the delectable array of dining opportunities on offer. The Cypriot flair of the food expertly prepared by Annabelle’s talented chefs is noteworthy enough to have inspired a cookbook and guests can enjoy a library of flavours throughout their stay.
Almyra – Paphos, Cyprus
Sister hotel to Anassa, Almyra completes the tantalising trilogy. Almyra boasts an award winning spa that guests of Anassa can also enjoy. Whilst Almyra proudly provides the same excellent childcare facilities, including ‘Baby Go Lightly’, the Almyraspa is strictly an adults-only utopia. Designed as a holistic haven, Almyraspa provides innovative treatments feature ‘beyond organic’ products that incorporate ingredients from the Almyraspa garden. For a truly rejuvenating experience, book a private rooftop yoga session for a workout with the wow-factor. Furthermore, Almyra provides an inviting array of authentic international cuisine, meaning you can benefit from the famous health-giving properties of the Mediterranean diet or dine on a Japanese Bento Box for a light lunch by the pool. Almyra is the ideal setting to while away the hours surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty but if you’re seeking to uncover a greater understanding of Cyprus’ absorbing history, this fabulous hotel is perfectly placed to explore such prominent sites as the Tombs of Kings, Baths of Aphrodite and Mosaics of Paphos. Culture, cuisine and a perfect climate, Almyra has it all and more.
