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?ย 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.

Almyra Hotel

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. Thereโ€™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,ย  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?
