    Whether you’re after a peaceful escape spent on the beach, or a culture-cramming trip exploring historical hotspots, Paphos provides the perfect setting.

    Paphos’ sandy beach waves a Blue Flag, and stretches out for around 150 metres right in the town’s centre, so it’s easy to access. This is far from the only sandy spot Paphos has to offer though. Its coastline unfurls for 50 kilometres, and it’s divided up into around 27 beaches.

    When it comes to history, a medley of Ancient Egyptian and Greek heavyweights make their homes in Paphos. You’ll find the Temple of Aphrodite perched on top of a sea-view hill, and the UNESCO-accredited Tomb of the Kings a couple of kilometres north of Paphos harbour.

    Constantinou Bros hotels are all about making sure that you can have the Paphos holiday that you want. Each of their hotels caters for a different type of holidaymaker, and offers a wide range of facilities. Take a look at our guide to see which hotel suits you best…

    Best for luxury – Constantinou Bros Asimina Suites

    If it’s a laid-back, luxury break that you’re longing for, the Constantinou Bros Asimina Suites is the Paphos hotel for you. This place is just for adults, so peace and quiet – minus the pitter-patter of tiny feet – come as standard. All the rooms at this place are suites, decked out with the likes of marble-clad bathrooms and fancy espresso machines. The Asimina Suites has secured a great location, too, right on Kato Paphos’ Beach, so the sand is footsteps away. What’s more, bustling Paphos is only two kilometres away.

    Food-wise, you’ve got three restaurants to choose from, including a beachfront eatery dishing up net-fresh seafood. You can even opt for a classy start to your day and pour yourself a glass of Champagne to go with your breakfast at the Estia international buffet restaurant, too. Plus, for special occasions, the hotel arranges exclusive al fresco dinners on the pier, where you can watch sunsets turn the waves peachy.

    Best for families – Constantinou Bros Athena Beach Hotel

    For a family-focused getaway, the Constantinou Bros Athena Beach Hotel has you covered. For starters, its pool scene offers something for all the family. Three huge, lounger-lined swimming spots form the hotel’s centrepiece, and a couple of them feature whirlpool baths, too. If that’s not enough, children have two extra shallow pools all to themselves.

    The hotel also runs its own kids’ club, which puts on plenty of activities to keep the little ones entertained. Within the well-kept gardens, you’ll find a sand-floored playground, and there’s a games room inside, too. And, for adults, games on the newly refurbished bowls greens come free of charge with your deluxe or suite room*.

    You’ve got a choice of six restaurants too, so fussy eaters can take their pick. And, what’s more, children have their own section at the buffet restaurant.

    Best for beach-lovers – Constantinou Bros Athena Royal Beach

    What’s the highlight at this hotel? The clue’s in the name. A slice of sand that’s fit for royalty nestles next to the adults-only Constantinou Bros Athena Royal Beach. We’re talking powder-soft sand and turquoise seas straight from the pages of a brochure. You’ll find relaxation-ready loungers dotted over the sand, as well as a jetty jutting out into the water for diving. If you need even more of a seaside fix, stroll down the coast for 15 minutes and you’ll reach Paphos’ harbour, where you’ll find the city’s main beach.

    Meanwhile, back at the hotel, you’ve got a trio of freshwater pools to lounge around. You can book a treatment at the classy spa, too – choose from options including a ginger and cinnamon massage, and an algae wrap. Plus, an impressive total of five restaurants and a bar will keep you fed and watered in between sunbathing sessions.
