Alexander The Great Beach Hotel

Picture a gorgeous palm tree-lined infinity pool right on the beach, with a swim-up bar. Imagine lazing beside it, gazing out over the ocean with a cocktail, soaking up the endless sun then watching it set from a candlelit taverna. Sounds pretty good doesn’t it? And it is. That’s exactly what you’ll get at the Alexander the Great Hotel. The kids are well looked-after, there’s a comprehensive roster of entertainment for everyone come sundown, and it’s only a ten-minute walk to the centre of Kato Paphos, if you fancy sampling the local action.

Overview of Paphos

So pretty, and so rich in culture, Paphos is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Whether you’re ambling along the promenade or soaking up its history at the medieval fort, you’ll be making lifelong memories, and you’ll soon understand why holidays to Crete are so coveted. The ancient buildings are intoxicating, the weather is beautiful, and there are so many activities on offer, it seems unfair to rule anything out. When it’s time to choose a home from home here, you can’t go far wrong with the Alexander the Great Hotel, which has bagged one of the finest locations on the island.

Things to do in Paphos

Delightful Paphos Harbour has so much to enjoy, and you’ll find the wondrous Paphos Castle there too, which is steeped in rich history. If hiking is your thing, a walk along the Akamas Peninsula is one of the most beautiful walks around, or go for something a little less physical with leisurely a cruise to the Blue Lagoon. You can snorkel there as well, and the views are unmissable. Aphrodite is said to have been born right here, on Petra tou Romiou Beach. It’s a truly gorgeous spot, and the best place in Paphos to take in the sunset. With so much history and natural beauty, Paphos makes for an excellent holiday spot. There’s a lot to take in, but it’s all so picturesque it’s hardly a chore – and if you’d rather just crash by the pool and take in the view, the Alexander the Great Hotel has you covered.

Resort Summary

Not many places could define Cyprus and its long history quite as well as Paphos, which is located on the southwest coast of the island.

A rich thread of history is woven into every part of Paphos, and it shows in the architecture and outlook of the city’s people. It’s said that the Greek goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite, once called the city home. Her mythic touch can also be felt in nearby sites like Amathus Bay, where a temple still stands in her honour.

There are places all around that demonstrate why the city’s been chosen as European Capital of Culture 2017. Such as Paphos Castle and the Randi Gorge in Aphrodite Hills, where Aphrodite is said to have risen from the sea. These landmarks of a bygone era have to be seen to be believed.
