FALL FOR THE ‘ORIGINAL ISLAND OF LOVE’
Cyprus is an island of beautiful opposites. Golden beaches combine with tree-covered mountain tops and rugged coastlines to create a diverse—yet consistently stunning—landscape. Vibrant seaside destinations like Paphos cater to travelers seeking lively tavernas and fascinating historical sites, including “Aphrodite’s Rock,” known as the birthplace of the Greek goddess of love and beauty. This city’s history dates back to Neolithic times, and it’s also home to the Wishing Tree—a fixture at the St. Solomon’s Catacombs, where visitors make wishes while tying ribbons and handkerchiefs to its branches. Our luxury vacations in Cyprus will introduce you to any combination of these experiences.
For designer shops, premium amenities, and VIP harbour club experiences, head to Limassol, the island’s largest resort city and a hotspot for fashionable luxury travelers.
You’ll also find opportunities for restful escapes in small villages like Lofou, where lush vegetation and stunning mountain terrain provide the perfect environment for some peace and quiet.
The “jewel of the Meditteranean” is also home to a mix of cultures, with a population roughly 78 percent Greek and 22 percent Turkish. The two combine on the plates of Cyprus’ many chic eateries, and—fun fact—halloumi cheese is only considered halloumi if it comes from here. In addition to fueling foodie dreams, the country is also a favorite destination for sun lovers, due to the crystalline waters and near-perfect climate at locations like Coral Bay. And with 10 well-preserved shipwrecks, this island attracts diving enthusiasts from across the globe.
