Elysium Hotel 

Where luxury meets local charm 

This is a delightful beachfront resort with a traditional Cypriot style, offering award-winning service.

You know you’re in for a treat when the name of your hotel translates to ‘eternal bliss’. And thanks to the charming Byzantine-inspired architecture, beautifully tendered gardens and oceanfront setting, the Elysium Hotel is appropriately named. Local materials have been sourced to provide a real sense of place and there’s a focus on the style and traditions of the region with design features such as mosaics, archways and columns throughout. There’s a huge split-level pool at the heart of the property as well as an adults-only sunken pool for the exclusive use of Royal Studio guests. The Elysium Hotel is also the perfect destination for a luxury family holiday as there’s a complimentary kids’ club and family-friendly accommodation options.

Why we love Elysium Hotel

  • The resort’s Opium Spa is one of the finest in Paphos, if not the whole of Cyprus

  • Its harmonious design is inspired by Byzantine architecture, which brings together Greek, Roman and Venetian influences

  • You can walk to the nearby ancient site of the Tombs of the Kings or hire a bike to explore Old Paphos and the coastline

  • Families will appreciate facilities such as the kids’ club, great food choices and flexible range of accommodation
