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
Stayed there 5th December this year (2018). Introduction brief from the reception staff told us about the three restaurants, but there was a surcharge, but failed to say that two were closed for the winter. There was no arrival drink, so we ordered two halves of beer, 8 Euro's !!. There was no tea or coffee making in the room, despite the 5* rating. You only go free coffee or tea at breakfast, all other meals you had to pay. Meals are worked out at 15 Euro's breakfast, 40 Euro's lunch and dinner.. On my last day I was entitled to lunch, but my transfer was before lunch started, so I asked for a bag meal. They said I could only have one if I paid for it? I had saved them 40 Euro's and they wanted me to pay for a bag meal, that's the penny pinching attitude they had, and you could sense it every day. Nothing was for free. Night entertainment was awful. As you can guess, I will not be going back there again.
A warm welcome with helpful staff and an excellent large Aetheon Room with balcony overlooking the sea .... & the storms & lightening - most spectacular.
Large and very clean room - a tea tray on request and a big bathroom with walk in shower.
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner in the large Mosaics Restaurant - a good buffet with plenty of choice - but 95% of it did not change day to day. It would have been very nice to have a served main course from a selection of say 5.
Good bar and lounge areas with music aqnd sensible bar prices.
Close to town center all walkable - whwn not raining
It is always a pleasyto return to The Almyra.
The team are friendly, efficient and make you feel like a valued guest!
A great choice of food in the Mosaic restaurant, the Japanese restaurant is amazing, we dining 3 of the nights we stayed.
Rooms are a good size, and great sea views if you book that option. Rooms are beginning to look tired, floors (polished concrete) are badly marked, mosaic tiles in the shower need replacement.
I look forward to returning next year
Modern minimalist hotel in a great location close to Paphos harbour. Rooms very comfortable and the garden terrace rooms have quiet and pleasant view of the gardens and sea. Spa facilities are good. Food is delicious and mostly Greek orientated. Not a huge selection but, as in any good restaurant, high quality, fresh ingredients cooked perfectly. Best of all is the staff. Friendly, happy, well trained and professional. Nothing was too much trouble and any request was dealt with promptly. Cannot fault it and will return.b
We have just returned from a 10 day stay at the Almyra. We were there in March and the holiday was just as good. My wife uses a wheelchair and the help and assistance was second to none. The food was excellent and the staff friendly,efficient and attentive. We had an Aethon room on the 3rd floor overlooking the harbour and the room, together with the housekeeping staff, was exceptional and I would not hesitate recommending the hotel to anyone in the future- Thank you Almyra.
