A home from home: Perfect for a short or long trip, immerse yourself in luxury at the Almyra Hotel.

The Almyra Hotel sits in sultry subtropical Cyprus which has attracted those in search of sun, sand and authenticity for many decades. Placed on the coastline at Paphos on six acres of land, the Almyra, which was designed by Joelle Pleot, who worked on Karl Lagerfeld’s private home, affords its guests tranquil sea views and white-washed, simple elegance.  With Egypt and the Lebanon nearby washing their hot weather over Cyprus, it has become a favourite with travellers and locals. The Alymra is a home from home, ready to accept those who wish to relax, eat well and contemplate life in between snoozes.
The hotel has 189 rooms with sea or garden views and a selection of suites that include the Kyma suite with open-plan lounge and bedroom with seafront terrace accessed by French windows. The suite also has a rooftop bathing area. The Almyra has complimentary wifi access for those mixing chill-axing with one eye still on business, although it is likely you will forget the urgency of work emails after a glass of chilled fine wine on the plant-filled Mosaics Restaurant veranda overlooking the sea.
Guests at the hotel were mainly senior, European travellers and their uniform comprised cheerful pastel shorts and t-shirts ideal for general sightseeing, boat trips, golf, pony trekking or just keeping cool.
No sun-filled jaunt would be complete without a spa option these days and the Almyra spa offers a selection of pools and marine-based therapies to immerse yourself in. These include the Almyra Hydro Harmony, where you are scrubbed with carob and brown sugar then rinsed with herbs before being wrapped in avocado and more carob.
As well as excellent service, the Almyra offers a high standard of food. The breakfast encourages leisurely lounging whilst admiring the beautiful sea view. Stylish, roughcut wooden tables groan under the weight of the delicious fayre, which includes local honey and nuts for the more health-conscious and the usual breakfast comforts such as eggs any style and selection of meats. One thing is for sure, breakfast at the Almyra will not disappoint. You can also try the Notios restaurant for a Japanese-Mediterranean fusion or the Eauzone Restaurant next to the spa and poolside.
Cocktails in the evening and late coffee and brandy are a must and the bar is well stocked and the bar staff and guests friendly.
For those with a family the hotel runs “Baby Go Lightly” a service where you order all your baby necessities so that the hotel sorts them out and delivers them to your room rather than you schlepping over with them. They also have two kids’ clubs: one for 4-12-year-olds, which provides beach games and treasure hunts, and one for 13-16 year olds.
Many guests stay for a few days but a longer stay is recommended for those who need to unwind. If you have gone on business, the major towns, apart from Paphos, are Nicosia, Limassol and Larnica which are a considerable distance and will require a car or driver.
The life is easy in Cyprus and requires much sitting down and stops for coffee, so keep in mind your high City energy is likely to unravel after a day or two as the palm trees mesmerise you with their billowing leaves.
