Have just returned from the beautiful island of Cyprus, where Carrier Travel had taken 5 of us to see their choice of Hotels and the destination as a whole.
Cant quite believe I have never been before.
BA direct to Larnaca, and then taken straight across to the west coast to stay at the simply gorgeous Annassa Hotel. Simply beautiful, in a tranquil spot overlooking a huge bay, and with one of the best terraces I have ever seen at a Mediterranean hotel, the views were stunning.
Room beautifully equipped and laid out, 2 nights was never going to be long enough.
From there, we also stayed at the Aphrodite Hills Golf Resort, where again, the rooms in the Intercontinental were lovely, and with peaceful views over the fairways.
Lastly, 2 nts at the gorgeous Colombia Beach Hotel in Pissouri .
Also saw 6/7 of their other featured Hotels, all lovely, but all with their own individuality – call me for more rundown!
Overall – Cyprus was a surprise, – yes its built up in the Larnaca/Limassol area, but travel west an hour or 2, and beautiful green rolling hills and the Troodos Mtns take over, and exploring is easy on good roads where they drive on the left !
Highlights – the Anassa & fabulous Cypriot Meze food which didn’t stop !
