Love Paphos and looking to stay somewhere with a little bit of an alternative edge this summer? We have located three hot-spots in the centre of the seaside town which provide the best of both worlds: total comfort and a slightly alternative edge.


1. Pan Mari Junior Suites

If you’re keen on a suite with all the comforts you could wish for, that feels a little bit like your own flat, then Pan Mari Junior Suites (pictured in cover photo) is bound to fulfill your holiday dreams. Comprising five different cozy, cute and creatively decorated suites, the Kato Paphos location is also an ideal one, located just 5 minutes walking distance from the sea, with plenty of dining and entertainment options in the vicinity.



Each of the PanMari Junior Suites has been designed with tasteful furniture and state of the art comforts. Dias, Lyda, Kyknos and Pernery are ideal for a couple’s escape. They feature a cosy king sized double bed and fully equipped kitchen. Looking to book a family getaway? Lakrias is a larger Junior Suite, ideal for parents with one or two children. Enjoy a cosy bedroom, fully equipped kitchen and a living area.



2. Casa Mespilea

Love beautiful old mansions with courtyard gardens? While many of us immediately think of booking a hotel right by the water’s edge in Paphos, there’s a whole different side to the town just waiting to be discovered. Head into the old hub, and historic buildings call out for attention while modern installations and stunning art murals give the whole area a real artistic flair.



And in the heart of it all, Casa Mespilea beckons; a delightfully renovated townhouse, that opened its doors this year, restored to its former glory with a modern twist. We love the way fruity artwork adorns every room, all named after a different local variety. Step outside into the lovely courtyard to see the medlar tree that the hotel is named after, and kick back to soak up the early morning or late afternoon sunshine.

3. Anemi Hotel & Suites

 Combining the style and panache of a chic boutique hotel, while still retaining the comfort and ease of a family-friendly establishment – complete with a swimming pool and kids facilities – Anemi Hotel & Suites is ideally suited to a wide range of holiday needs. The place is ideal for all types of holidaymakers: from young couples who want to relax in style, to families with children who require a full range of easily accessible facilities.



Another Kato Paphos gem, 25 studios and 65 one-bedroom Cyprus Holiday Apartments have been either refurbished or redesigned to an exceptional standard – think dark wood, glass, brushed metal and stylish accessories. And you don’t even have to leave the property if you don’t want to: the pool area is perfect for lounging on a sunbed with cocktail in hand.
