Aphrodite Hills Resort is the first ever gated five star, fully integrated golf, leisure and real estate development in Cyprus. The resort is ranked among the top 20 best resorts in the world and has won many awards.
Occupying a scenic and beautiful location, gently sloping towards the Mediterranean Sea, Aphrodite Hills occupies a 234-hectare site between Paphos (15 kilometres to the east) and Limassol (45 kilometres to the west). It sits on either side of the Randi Gorge, overlooking the spot where Aphrodite is said to have risen from the sea. It's a peaceful and relaxing place with so many facilities and amenities, there's never a reason to stray too far.
The resort is in the area called Palaepaphos (Old Paphos) and is near the seaside village of Petra tou Romiou. This is the mythical birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty, and the founding myth is interwoven with the town such that Old Paphos became the most famous and important place for worshiping Aphrodite in the ancient world. In Greco-Roman times, Paphos was the island's capital, and it is well known for the remains of the Roman governor's palace, where extensive, fine mosaics are a major tourist attraction. Paul the Apostle visited the town during the first century AD. The town of Paphos is included in the official UNESCO list of cultural and natural treasures of the world's heritage.
Paphos enjoys a subtropical-Mediterranean climate, with the mildest temperatures on the island. Paphos has been selected as a European Capital of Culture for 2017.
Just a couple of minutes from the resort hotel, there's a private beach, with umbrellas and sunbeds, and just a 15-minute shuttle ride away is Avdimou Bay, which switches between pebbles and sand, and comes with crystal-clear waters and a couple of great fish tavernas. There's also a Blue Flag beach at Pissouri, around fifteen minutes' drive away.
