Kissos Hotel

A short distance from the sand and shingle beach, the Tombs of the Kings, Paphos Lighthouse and a good mix of shops, bars and restaurants, the Kissos Hotel is truly located in the heart of it all. While one has a terrace with sun loungers and the other has a Pool Bar, you may find it hard to decide which pool to go to and the choice doesn’t stop there as the international buffet restaurant also has plenty to offer. With an abundance of sports, entertainment, leisure and children’s facilities at your disposal, all you’ll have to worry about is prizing yourself away from all the fun to enjoy what is sure to be a comfortable nights sleep in your room.

Overview of Paphos

Not only is Paphos famed for its palm-lined coast, it’s also a mesmerising time capsule of antiquity, which was awarded the title of European Capital of Culture in 2017. The fusion of history and modernity is one of many reasons why holidays to Cyprus are highly recommended. Evidence of the city’s history can be seen in its medieval baths and UNESCO World Heritage listed Paphos Archaeological Park. By contrast, contemporary attractions include a selection of buzzing bars and bustling resorts. When it comes to accommodation, it’s possible to combine a balance of the two and the Kissos Hotel does just that.

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.
