Cyprus

Our verdict:

How could the home of Aphrodite, goddess of love, be anything other than romantic? Cyprus is a no brainer when it comes to easy honeymoons with year-round sunshine and frequent flights. If your budget allows, splash out on a top hotel. Mine would always be the Anassa on the secluded Akamas Peninsula. Owned by three local sisters, their attention to detail shows.

Inspired Luxury Escapes says

It’s hard to think of a more appropriate honeymoon destination than Cyprus – after all, it was the home of Aphrodite, the goddess of love!

  • Adult-only hotels
  • Year-round sunshine
  • Regional flights

There are many other reasons why Cyprus works so well – there’s year-round sunshine, a wide choice of luxury hotels offering some of the best value and service in the Med and it’s easy to reach from a wide choice of UK airports.

If that isn’t enough, there’s also a great mix of vibrant nightlife, archaeological treasures, tranquil pine forests and mountains, characterful villages and a stunning coastline.

The five star Hotel Anassa is our top recommendation for escapists. Located on the Akamas peninsular, we especially love the rooms with a private plunge pool and the superb seasonal cuisine.

Paphos, on the west coast, is the best choice if you want to combine R&R at your hotel with some nightlife in a lively seaside resort. Elysium Resort Hotel is an award-winning five star option which is set on its own private sandy beach within walking distance of the centre of Paphos and has a world-class spa.

Set in a quiet area, also close to Paphos, you’ll find Asimina Suites, a five star adults-only gem with all-suite accommodation including some with a private pool. There’s a superb spa too as well as a private sandy beach.

The luxury all-inclusive arrangements and adult-only areas at the Olympic Lagoon Resort, a five-minute drive from Paphos, make it a popular choice for couples. Choose from five restaurants for dinner each evening and enjoy your favourite tipple at the swim-up bar.

Head to the Four Seasons in Limassol for sheer unadulterated luxury – not least the only Shiseido spa in the Med and choice of six superb restaurants.

Londa Beach Hotel is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World and is more intimate waterfront property with just 68 rooms and suites. The spa here is exceptional and Limassol is a short walk away.
