After returning from our intense trip around Cyprus, one of the first posts I wanted to write was about their wonderful spa hotels. We visited a few and got so impressed. Seriously, spa hotels in Cyprus are really cool and spending a couple of nights there helps to revitalize, boost the energy levels, and experience this Mediterranean island from a different angle.
There are tons of things to do in Cyprus. From all-inclusive hotels, gorgeous beaches packed with history, cities, and mountains, everyone can choose something to his taste. But visiting a spa or even staying in a hotel with an amazing spa, is another reason to travel there.
Some people say that the low season in Cyprus, which goes from the end of October to mid-April, is the best time for leisurely walks, spa treatments, slow-paced travel and trips around the island. But really, in my opinion, if you are a spa person, any time of the year is right enough.
On this list, you’ll find hotels not only along the shore but in the central part of the island, near the mountains and historical towns. They will suit the most demanding public and those tourists who want to try something else besides the traditional beaches and the sea.
Plus, if you are visiting from late autumn to early spring, you can’t really swim in the sea anyway. So if the goal is to escape, there is an opportunity to do that. Budget travelers can afford to go to one of these hotels too, especially if visiting in winter.
Since Cyprus is a year-round resort island, the country’s economy is very much tied to tourism. You can be sure that every year each hotel goes above and beyond to please a demanding tourist.
Type of Spa in Cyprus
Among the leading methods of recovery and rejuvenation in almost all Cypriot spa centers is thalassotherapy. If you don’t know yet, thalassotherapy involves the use of the marine climate, seawater, mud, algae and other “gifts” of the sea for the purpose of prevention and treatment. As a rule, the complex of services includes tonic, restorative and relaxing procedures for the face and body using marine minerals, various wraps based on seaweed and healing mud.
In the Cyprus resorts, a decent spa is when, in addition to the traditional hot tub with mineral water, you can swim in the pool, relax in the sauna or receive a portion of aroma massage. An amazing SPA hotel is a hotel that is permeated with the idea of hydrotherapy and relaxation associated with water, it’s not just a room of 20 square meters.
If it has a sauna, then not just one but several different types. If there is a pool, then not one or two but three or more. Also, the hotel should have hydromassage, healing mud and plants, physiotherapy rooms, and other amenities.
Many SPA hotels in Cyprus are located on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, but there are those located in the mountains. It is simply impossible to describe all of them in one post.
I am a big fan of spa vacations and would like to share my favorite spots that many other people also love. Even locals frequent these hotels often. If you have visited any other hotel which didn’t make this list, please, spread the word.
So Here is My List of the Best Spa Hotels Around Cyprus
Leonardo Plaza Cypria Maris Beach Hotel & Spa (All-Inclusive Hotel)
I would like to start this list with a spa hotel in Paphos. Many people who have visited Cyprus say that Paphos is the best city to vacation in the offseason. With rains, this part of the island starts to bloom and becomes especially beautiful.
The room price in Leonardo Plaza hotel includes hydro-massage baths, pool, sauna, and gym. This is an all-inclusive hotel, so food in all restaurants is included. Greek and Asian restaurants have great menus and there is a buffet with international cuisine.
There is a daily entertainment program for hotel guests and a private sandy beach (which is actually rare for rocky Paphos). If visiting in winter, it is nice to just walk and relax by the sea.
The price is around 200 euros per day for two in high season and various discounts for winter travel.
Casale Panayiotis SPA hotel & Myrianthousa Spa
This is a traditional SPA hotel with an unusual history and with a soul if I can say that.
The owner of the hotel, a Cypriot who worked for a long time away from his homeland, returned to the Troodos Mountains to his native village of Kalopanayiotis and opened this small and comfortable spa hotel.
Each hotel room represents the style of Cyprus village traditional house which helps visitors experience authenticity. The owner of the hotel restored every house and thereby conveyed a connection with the past.
The luxury of the rooms goes together with incredible spa treatments. There are hydrotherapy, foot baths, a mint sauna with ice fog, herbal bath, mineral water pool, water massage loungers, a rain shower, and even a snow cabin. After all these therapies, you can relax with a cup of herbal tea overlooking the Troodos Mountains in the relaxation room.
Even experienced spa-goers will be pleasantly surprised by this hotel. If you choose to spend even one night here, you’ll surely want to come back.
Actually, you don’t need to be a hotel guest to be able to visit Spa. You can just come for a day, pay 45 Euros and use everything except for treatments like massages, facials, scrabs, etc. If you buy a certain procedure, then you pay less for the main spa center (saunas, pools, herbal baths, etc.).
Since the hotel is located more inland and far from the beach, some people may assume that there is not much to do in the area. In reality, near the hotel, there are many hiking trails and attractions. For instance, the church and monastery of St. John and natural springs.
The price of a double room is 130-170 euros per day. In offseasons, it costs much cheaper. I personally love this hotel and highly recommend it to you guys too.
Londa Hotel 5*
You will receive true pleasure from visiting the spa center of the Londa Hotel. A full range of face and body care using cosmetics from the world-famous Elemis brand is complemented by hand and foot care procedures. Outside guests, who come to a spa center for a day, can visit a cozy gym, a sauna in the relaxation area, and relax by the small indoor hydromassage pool.
Guests of this spa hotel stay in rooms with Italian design furnishings and have access to a wellness center and an outdoor swimming pool overlooking the MediterraneanThe property is a member of Small Luxury Hotels.
Make sure to choose the signature procedures of the spa center. They include a variety of massages, body wraps, anti-aging, and relaxing complexion treatments. The cost of face and body treatments ranges from 60 to 170 euros. Well, if you prefer to start your day with yoga, you can join group yoga classes on the Mediterranean coast.
Four Seasons Cyprus Hotel 5* And Their Shiseido Spa
Everyone knows Four Seasons hotels, their outstanding service, and amenities. Four Seasons hotel in Cyprus is no different. It lies on a sandy beach between the airports of Larnaca and Pafos and is a short drive from Limassol.
With 5 restaurants, 4 bars, 3 swimming pools, a gym, Shiseido Spa, and Kids Club the hotel offers something for each guest.
Their spa complex opened in 1993 and was the first spa in Cyprus. Today, guests can find a full range of cosmetics here and one of the most famous brands in the world Shiseido.
Every guest gets a great opportunity to relax with the help of luxurious spa treatments, some of which are designed specifically for the hotel. Shiseido’s Spa Serenity procedure is something to travel for. The duration is 2.5 hours and the cost 255 euros.
But during this unique procedure, almost every point in your body is affected. The ritual begins with a Japanese foot bath, followed by Zen Delight body massage, which helps restore balance and pacify the whole body. At the final stage, experienced specialists give a relaxing massage of the head and shoulders, and then you can enjoy a cup of tea or fresh juice in a special relaxation area.
Aphrodite Hills Golf & SPA Resort Residences
Another SPA hotel in Western Cyprus. This true gem is located on the hills above Paphos. Nearby there are Baths of Aphrodite, who, according to legend, knew the benefit of seawater treatments.
Besides being close to the beach, there are also incredible landscapes, golf courses, a long swimming pool, and sea views. Some rooms have terraces with private pools.
The spa complex of this hotel has received an award in this industry in the nomination “Best SPA-center in Europe“.
The price per night is between 200-250 Euro per day for two. In the offseason, prices start from 80 euros per night.
Ayii Anargyri Natural Healing Spa Resort 5*
Another SPA hotel in the Paphos area on the way to Poli city. The hotel is located by the Paphos-Poli highway but is somewhat tucked away in greenery. It was opened after renovation in the spring of 2009 and is currently designed for 150 people.
The healing waters from natural springs are supplied to almost all hotel rooms. All therapeutic procedures are carried out under the close supervision of experienced medical professionals and physiotherapists.
In addition to traditional spa and beauty treatments, there are yoga classes here. Wine lovers will be able to combine a spa stay with a visit to a winery. Ayii Anargyri Natural Healing Spa resort has its own vineyards and offers guided tours.
As for the rooms, there are separate bungalows, classic standard rooms, and deluxe. You can relax on the grounds in the shade of citrus trees that produce fruit until winter, and in spring they bloom very beautifully.
The hotel is only for adults, more precisely for people over 14 years old. The price is quite reasonable, from 80 to 200 euros per day. Of course, there are also discounts in the autumn-winter season and early spring.
Anassa 5* Latsi
Anassa hotel is a luxury 5-star hotel that belongs to the Cyprus Thanos chain hotels. It also exudes the charm of a traditional Cypriot village and is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
The hotel is located on the seafront on a hill in a very secluded place. A 5-minute drive brings you to the village of Latsi, Poli, Aphrodite Bay, and a bunch of natural attractions.
Mark and I loved this property for its location, atmosphere, luxurious rooms, and unrivaled spa. In addition, there are as many as eight restaurants with great food with a lot of variety, including vegan Cypriot cuisine, squash court, water sports, a picturesque garden, and pool areas that are ideal for rest and relaxation.
Prices start from 300 euros per night but this Cyprus hotel is worth every cent.
