Melissi Beach

Melissi Beach has a huge swimming pool, a beach bar and a close-to-it-all location.

The interiors are super modern with an entirely marble lobby, and rooms featuring whitewashed walls and recessed mood lighting.

Loungers and palm trees surround the main pool and there’s a pool reserved entirely for adults – it even has a swim-up bar in the middle. The little ones also have a separate pool for splashing around, and the whole family can get drinks and snacks from the pool bar.

In the restaurant, large buffet spreads are the order of the day. The themed menu means no two meals are ever the same. After dark, the sea-facing pool bar converts into a Cypriot taverna.

Overview of Ayia Napa

Holidays to the Larnaca region of Cyprus mean plenty of sun and sand. The region gets more than 300 days of sunshine every year, so it’s perfect no matter when you’re planning to travel.

Lively Ayia Napa is most famous for its neon-lit strip where bars and super clubs stay open until dawn, but when you stay at the Melissi Beach hotel, there’s also plenty of family-friendly fun: check off Blue Flag beaches on the doorstep, diving adventures off the shore and water parks just outside the town centre.

Things to do in Ayia Napa

The Melissi Beach hotel is right on Ayia Napa’s golden sands. Grab a lounger and top up your tan. If you fancy getting the adrenaline pumping, try the water sports. If you love to dive and snorkel, head to the artificial reef under the water.

The centre of Ayia Napa and its party strip is just a five-minute stroll from the hotel. Famed for its all-night clubs and bars, Ayia Napa is not all about partying. You’ll also find family-friendly bars and tavernas serving gorgeous food in a lively atmosphere.

If you’re looking for a relaxing beach day, a late-night party or family-friendly fun, head to Ayia Napa. You’ll find the bright lights and the beautiful views intoxicating.

Resort Summary

Nightlife is undoubtedly the principal reason most people head off on Ayia Napa holidays, where activity centres on the main square. Though smaller than you might expect, the square is jam-packed with bars and clubs jostling for business, sometimes offering great promotional deals in the process. If you’re looking for an alcohol-fuelled and hangover-punctuated holiday, you’ve come to the right place.

Having said that, there’s plenty to see and do in Ayia Napa during the day. For starters, the eight-kilometre coast around these parts is home to 14 splendid beaches, each and every one of them accredited with Blue Flag status. You can hire watersport equipment at most of them. Under the water, there’s a coral reef, and scuba-diving possibilities are second to none.

Staying on dry land – but still getting wet – adrenaline junkies can head to WaterWorld Themed Waterpark, an award-winning amusement park that’s one of the biggest of its kind in Europe. Alternatively, there are bungee-jumping opportunities and plenty of inland tours to keep your days action-packed until the sun goes down and the volume comes up.
