Following an extensive two-year renovation of the Paphos Beach Hotel, the town’s first ever seaside hotel which first opened in 1972, Thanos Hotels launched Almyra in March 2003. The rooms have been enlarged and redesigned, and the signature suites, aptly named Kyma Suites, meaning ‘wave’ in Greek, feature rooftop terraces offering breathtaking views of the sea and the harbour, which are candle-lit at night. The property’s two freshwater pools were rebuilt to include one especially for children and the four restaurants reflect the new philosophy of Almyra. The executive chef of the gastronomic restaurants has introduced a new creative Japanese-Mediterranean fusion menu.
Families are an integral part of Almyra’s contemporary seaside resort philosophy. The hotel boasts a dedicated children's club with extensive facilities and special children's menus. Almyra's Baby Go Lightly service offers parents the opportunity to order every manner of baby item on-line in advance of traveling, saving plenty of space in their suitcase. Almyra’s location means that guests have the advantage of being close to the sea, while also being within walking distance of the shops, castle, the house of Dionysos with its unparalleled Roman mosaics, three golf courses and many other attractions in and around the Pafos area. Almyra is set within eight acres of landscaped gardens right on the harbour front.
In a land steeped in mythology, a metamorphosis has taken place. Almyra represents the transformation of the Pafos Beach Hotel, built in 1973 as the first hotel in Pafos legendary birthplace of Aphrodite.

Services & Facilities
One of the joys of being on holiday is being able to choose what you eat, when you eat it and where. So for those hungry moments when you just don’t feel like leaving your room, we have developed a delicious, fresh, room service menu offering everything from light refreshments to full meals. Whether it is a Smoked Salmon Sandwich with Olives and Sliced Cucumber, a Buffalo Mozzarella Salad with Red Onion, Tomato and Basil or a Greek-Style Beef Burger with Feta, Tomato and Tsatsiki, it is all available through Room Service. Can be also offered a series of wines, both Cypriot and international, carefully selected by our expert sommelier, to best complement the dishes on offer. And because at Almyra every single room has an outdoor space, whether it be a balcony or a terrace, there’s always the option of al fresco dining, even when its in-room.
Bars & Restaurants
Almyra has introduced an exciting and sophisticated concept at Notios, the al fresco à la carte restaurant, which draws upon the purity of Japanese food and reflects the sensuality of Mediterranean taste. A strong advocate of experimentation in order to create a spectrum of flavours, textures and colours, the executive chef is also passionate about the power of honesty and restraint. The result is original, simple modern cuisine with culinary integrity. The chef has produced a series of surprise tasting menus (ranging from five to nine courses) which he calls ‘Omakase’, meaning “trust the chef” in Japanese. Each course reflects a different texture and flavor. The chef is happy to discuss the suitability of a particular menu the day before. Omakase dinners can also be arranged for private dining on the roof terraces of the Kyma Suites. Please note that Notios is only open weather-permitting during the day from November to March.
Guests can enjoy lavish buffets meals at Mosaics, which is also where the scrumptious breakfasts are served. Mosaics is the main restaurant of the hotel and the meals are focused on pleasing all taste buds. Featuring a live kitchen, the flavors are varied and the theme of this restaurant is mainly of a Mediterranean / international flavor. The à la carte and selectors menus offer a selection of salads or cold appetizers, fresh meat cuts, seafood display, special à la minute cooking and of course, homemade sweets. Exciting theme nights such as Seafood Market, Asian-Pacific or Cyprus Traditional complete the casual dining experience. Some sample dishes are: grilled octopus with red pepper and olive oil; smoked trout with horseradish sauce; carrot and peanut rite; swordfish kebabs with coriander white wine sauce
Located at beach level, Ouzeri is the traditional seaside summertime restaurant, focusing on light Greek snacks and simple local Cypriot dishes. Depending on the weather, the Ouzeri also offers barbeques at night on the beach where it is situated. Ouzeri is closed in the period from November to March.
Flavours at Helios: Located on the right side of the lobby by the fireplace. A lovely setting to enjoy your dinner, with magnificent sea vistas, accompanied by live music on selected evenings
Helios Lounge Bar: Fresh, ground coffee, delicious pastries, cakes and light refreshments are served throughout the day, as well as cocktails and drinks. A perfect setting to enjoy your sundowners, with a magnificent view overlooking the sea and the Paphos Castle in the distance.
Omakase: The Executive chef Rob Shipman is proud to present Almyra style tasting menus with a Japanese-Mediterranean approach. In Japanese the meaning of Omakase is “trust the chef”. When ordering Omakase you discover the menu as you dine. It becomes a surprise at the table…that’s the name of the game with Omakase. In these multi-course dinners the courses come out one by one. Each course has a different flavor and texture.
When ordering Omakasé you may like to meet the chef the day before you dine to discuss the menu which will best suit your taste. Choose from Kiku Omakase (5 Course Menu), Yanagi Omakase (7 Course Menu) or Sakura Omakase (9 Course Menu). In Japanese Kiku means chrysanthemum, Yanagi means willow tree, and Sakura is cherry blossom. Bon Appetit! Kyma Private Dining: Experience Omakase in private on the exclusive Kyma rooftop terraces. The chef would be happy to design a menu to suit any occasion, from a romantic dinner to a buffet party, for 2 to 8 people. Vegetarian Omakase menus are also available. Please make your bookings 24 hours in advance.
Offering meals in the meze style makes the experience more enjoyable for families or large groups. It becomes more than just a meal - it turns into a social event as the guests share the various dishes. The Zen Meze makes use of dishes from the Á la Carte Menu and we serve them in the meze style. As the various dishes are prepared they are placed in the middle of the table and the guests share them together.
