Sleek and stylish. This hip all-white low-rise resort on Cyprus’s southwest coast may have been built in the 1970s, but the furnishings and decor are thoroughly modern. The elegant lobby is clad in acres of marble, and an eye-catching contemporary chandelier takes pride of place above the winding staircase. Poolside, chunky wooden double beds and billowing white canopies give the Almyra a boutique feel on a grand scale.
Bed and Bath
The Zen all-white vibe continues in the guestrooms, which are styled with clean lines, chunky dark wood furniture and floor-to-ceiling windows. Pastel-hued fabrics break up the otherwise stark white palette. The Kyma Suites are set in landscaped gardens on the waterfront with separate bedroom and lounge areas. Bathrooms are small but perfectly formed, with a separate tub and walk-in shower to ensure there’s plenty of elbow room for couples. Out front, the spacious terrace has a sofa, table and chairs, while on the lawn an enormous daybed gives you a private place to soak up the Mediterranean rays. Up top, the roof terrace give you a personal sun deck in the day and a private dining experience at night.
Almyra is a sizable hotel, and with that comes the luxury of choice. Four pools mean both families and couples are kept happy, and four restaurants run the gamut from Japanese bento boxes to modern Mediterranean cuisine. The poolside Notios looks stunning at night, with low-level lighting and dark wood booths, while Ouzerie is an authentic Cypriot waterfront tavern with awesome coastal views by day and a vibrant atmosphere by night. The ultramodern spa is a kid-free zone with high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and an outdoor yoga terrace. There are six treatment rooms and three spa suites, and a treatment list built around organic products from Just Pure and marine-based products from L.A. brand Osea.
How to Get There
We stayed at the Almyra last week 13th-20th October. We loved it, a beautiful location by the sea with friendly kind staff. my duaghter has some additional needs and staff went out of their way to accomdoate our requirements. The weather in Cyprus in october is always lovely, usually high 20's with sunshine all day. Can't wait to go back
The hotel is in a great location. First issue was on checkin where I was told no outside food or beverage - what? I have stayed in over 1000 hotels around the world and have never been told this. Yes, can’t have your own at the pool etc - but never in your own room. They finally said we could bring in our own Diet Coke. We went to wineries and didn’t buy any because of the rule. We wanted to take home some Uozo as a souvenir- but didn’t because of the rule as well as olives and nuts.
Additionally, our water was only provided at checkin. Really you don’t provide drinking water for guests? Our water glasses where used and when they “cleaned” the room - they just put the little cardboard coasters back on top! I asked at the front desk and they said they don’t change our the glasses - what? We cleaned then ourselves. Never got a Titanium welcome gift - it seemed like they didn’t know about Marriotts rewards program. I will follow-up with Marriott Bonvoy.
Would go back to Paphos in a heartbeat - but stay at Almyra - NEVER.
We're an English couple who ended up planning our wedding here, and inviting out ~45 guests, of whom most stayed at the hotel here with us.
Terrific. Wonderfully appointed rooms, great toiletries and a very attentive and generous bunch of bar and poll staff who will keep you in all the Aperol Spritz's you might need.
Would fully recommend going half board and giving yourself the option of the dinner buffet so you don't have to be constantly shelling out cash every night . The gym is decent, no real free weights and no chin-up bar but all the machines to do the best possible replacements and a bunch of cardio
Only real complaint is that they charge 4 euros per bottle of water, so you have to nip across the street and buy some from the local corner shop so you don't dehydrate. Other than that, if you see a deal here and want some Sept/Oct tanning hours this is absolutely the place to do it.
