With 4 and a half hours to fill, I got to work on editing and writing about my recent trip to Cyprus, literally on the flight home…no time like the present am I right? On Sunday I was very lucky to head to Paphos, Cyprus with Jigsaw and Chic Retreats to check out the Almyra hotel. Even better, I got to go with lovely company. Lizzy, Lindsey, Erica and Kat.
Suitcase packed we landed late Sunday evening (just in time for a night cap) and straight to bed. Up bright and breezy to check out the amazing spa, sample some delicious breakie and spend the day at 1 of 3 swimming pools. Bliss.
The hotel also boasts 6 restaurants and we tried quite a few. Highly recommend the Ouzeri restaurant, serving cypriot specialities. In utter heaven I had all the Halloumi (and much more) with views looking out to sea.
Other lovely moments, sundowners on the roof. There’s just something about golden hour which soothes the soul.
Having never been to Cyprus before it was nice to add a little culture to the trip and on Tuesday we had a guided tour of the archaeological park, then it was on to lunch at Koutourou in the old town…definitely worth a visit. The menu changes everyday to feature fresh ingredients and it was absolutely delicious, set in a vintage style cafe with really cool decor.
I’m now totally in holiday mode and eager to book our next trip, any recommendations?
