St Elias Resort

With its chic, contemporary style, the St Elias Resort is a great place to spend your time in Cyprus. It’s been recently refurbished, and the gorgeous hillside location affords breathtaking views over Protaras Bay. There are three great pools, one of which has three waterslides, a lovely restaurant, one bar by the pool and another offering evening entertainment. It’s only a 15-minute walk to the beach but there’s a shuttle bus stop outside the hotel too. Stroll five minutes to the nearby shops and bars.

Overview of Protaras

What more could you ask for.


Resort Summary

Nostalgia and history are deeply woven into the fabric of Protaras, the Cypriot town said to be built on the site of an ancient battle with a descendant of Alexander the Great. Nowadays, it’s a sunny town of fun and relaxation, although close enough to areas like Larnaca and Ayia Napa that you’ll never be at a loss for something to do during your Cyprus holidays. The beaches are golden and the town is full of character.
