APHRODITE HILLS RESORT, CYPRUS STRIKES GOLD AS ONE OF THE WORLD’S BEST HOTELS

Luxury Cyprus resort, Aphrodite Hills has been voted as one of the ‘World’s Best Hotels’ in Condé Nast Traveller magazine’s seventh annual Gold List, and is the only hotel in Cyprus to be recognised for its outstanding leisure facilities.

The panel of judges cited the hotel’s ‘sprawling estate with an 18-hole championship golf course, the Retreat Spa with 27 treatment rooms, indoor and outdoor pools, and tennis courts’ as the outstanding features that propelled the five-star resort onto the Gold List.

Chosen by the magazine’s editors and travel experts, the Gold List – revealed this month – is a definitive guide to the top hotels worldwide, with properties judged on six criteria – ambience and design, location, food, rooms, leisure facilities and service.

Commenting on the accolade Demetris Demetriou, Resort General Manager, Aphrodite Hills said: “This is an exceptional achievement and I’m incredibly proud of my entire team who all deserve congratulations for the part they have played. It is testimony to our ongoing commitment to offer the very best in luxury hospitality and a great way to start 2011.”

Aphrodite Hills Resort is beautifully situated within 578-acres near Paphos and set over two elevated plateaux on either side of the breathtaking Randidi Gorge. It’s the first-ever leisure, golf and real estate development in Cyprus. The resort offers a luxurious hotel – the InterContinental Aphrodite Hills Resort Hotel, a fabulously indulgent spa – The Retreat, a challenging 18-hole championship golf course, a tennis academy, two ultra-chic Beach Clubs and an award-winning, fully integrated resort community offering villas and apartments.
