Picture this. You’ve just enjoyed a drive along the west coast of the island and slowly begin to weave your way through a dramatic landscape as an endless putting green calls out to greet you backed by rising cliffs that rise up to touch the blue skies. Welcome to one of the latest gems of Aristo Developers: the Venus Rock Resort.
Located near the village of Kouklia, just outside Paphos, this resort is a stone’s throw away from one of Cyprus’ most visited coastal areas; the legendary birthplace of the Goddess Aphrodite, Aphrodite’s Rock.
An impressive luxurious integrated golf spa and residential development, it has fast become one of Europe’s largest luxury beach-front residential developments, with the premier resort soon to be home to some 3,000 properties, perched on the hills surrounding the golf course, loosely grouped together in hamlets, with breath-taking mountain or sea views.
Catering to your every golfing desire
The peaceful spot with views out to sea boasts two new fantastic 18-hole golf courses, which lie at the heart of its location.
Designed to complement the natural characteristics of the area, and to make the most of the secluded valley setting with views of the Mediterranean, we’re told that Tony Jacklin, four times Ryder Cup captain, winner of the British Open and US Open, has personally helped design the two courses at Venus Rock. And he has influenced every aspect, from the placement of the trees, to the shaping of the fairways and positions of the bunkers.
And the Secret Valley course has certainly attracted a great deal of attention, regularly enjoyed by international sportsmen and women, providing a high level of competition.
What else can you expect on the grounds? Having emerged as a vibrant and exclusive community, providing residents with facilities and services second to none, those seeking to unwind after a challenging round of golf can enjoy the immaculate state-of-the-art Secret Valley clubhouse and conference facilities, which provide the perfect backdrop for the ultimate gastronomic experience.
The family-friendly restaurant offers an eclectic Mediterranean menu in a warm, welcoming casual setting where you can sit back to enjoy delicious clubhouse and “local style” fare while taking in spectacular views of the tree-lined golf course. Then there’s the bar, also a great spot to unwind either before or after golf activities.
As with all golf courses and clubs, you’ll also find a well-stocked pro-shop and changing-room facilities with private lockers. There are also driving ranges with grass tees, covered bays, practice greens, full-size bunkers, in-house PGA teaching professionals, junior golf academy, trolleys and buggies for hire.
Where is the Venus Rock Resort located? Ha Potami, Kouklia 8, Paphos.
