The Best Boutique Hotels In Paphos

The city of Paphos is a beautiful part of Cyprus, lying on the west coast of the island and home to over 35,000 people. However, the district of Paphos encompasses 15% of the total island, which means you can travel for a few hours without leaving the region.

Good accommodation is not hard to find in the area either, but often the huge Paphos hotels (resorts) can be quite overwhelming, expensive and overcrowded. Luckily, there are some gorgeous boutique hotels in Paphos for you to choose from for your holiday.

What Is A Boutique Hotel?

A boutique hotel is a type of accommodation that stands out from others for a number of reasons.

The first is that they are small, with a limited number of rooms, guests and staff.

The owners want you to have a personalised and comfortable stay – so they will often want to get to know you on an individual basis in order to cater for your every need.

The bigger hotels and chains can’t do this because they are constantly checking people in and out of their hundreds of rooms, rotating staff and doing the bare minimum to keep their guests happy.

Boutique hotels rely on guest reviews rather than branding to be successful, so they want to make sure that your stay is perfect in any way that they can.

This leads to a second difference between a boutique hotel and a normal one. It’s very common for these types of places to be family-owned and run.

This gives off a relaxed and intimate vibe, as you can sometimes feel as though you are being welcomed into someone’s own home.

You often get to hear of local stories from years ago about what the building was originally used for, how the business started and what the original owners had in mind for their hotel – you can really learn some fascinating history!

Boutique hotels are also usually wonderfully ornated, with local artists and designers working together to bring the regional culture to life.

The rooms tend to each be decorated differently, reflecting a variety of customs and traditions from wherever you are staying.

Not all places celebrate their local heritage, but you can be sure that they will be designed and furnished beautifully to make your stay one to remember.

Most boutique hotels are one-of-a-kind and not part of a chain.

However, some bigger hotel brands are creating their own boutique room experiences. For example, Marriott is now promoting their Moxy chain, which are smaller hotels with a fun vibe and cheaper deals than their original counterparts.

I would still prefer to stay at a smaller boutique hotel though, for a more personal and unique experience. It also means you’re supporting a small business, not a multi-billion pound company!

One last thing about boutique hotels is that if they have an on-site restaurant, you can almost be guaranteed that the menus will be developed by local staff, which means you can get a taste of authentic food wherever you are.

So much about going on holiday is about experiencing the food from that city or country, and often your hotel will provide great opportunities to taste a variety of dishes that you might not usually find or be brave enough to try in a restaurant in town!

Now that you have a good understanding of the types of accommodation I’ll be talking about in this post, read on to find out what the best boutique hotels in Paphos are!

Things To Do In Paphos

Blue Lagoon

Visiting the Blue Lagoon is one of the most famous things to do in the whole of Cyprus.

The water is beautifully clear and warm, so it is perfect for swimming and snorkelling.

If you’re staying in Paphos, it is super easy to get to either by yourself or on a tour with a guide.

Hire a quad bike or a buggy if you want to drive there yourself – do not attempt the road in a standard hire car because you will probably get stuck and the insurance won’t cover any damages. It’s also dangerous as you’ll find it difficult to control a normal car on the roads.

Another option is to hire a self-drive boat. You don’t need any previous boating experience at all – you’re given a safety briefing before you leave, a staff member drives you out of the harbour (and then is taken back to the office) and then you’re free to drive yourself along the coast!

It’s really an incredible way to see the different bays, caves and rock formations in the area – plus you can spend your remaining time in the Blue Lagoon away from all of the other tourists.

You can also get on a boat tour, either starting in Paphos and exploring the land too, or just directly going to Latchi Harbour and getting on a boat there.

Both are good options, depending on what else you might have already seen in Paphos!

Relax With A Beach Day

Paphos has an astounding number of beaches to explore, many of these undiscovered by most tourists.

There are plenty of beaches with sunbeds, umbrellas, bars, restaurants and watersports if you’re looking for activities to do on the beach.

Usually, a sunbed and umbrella cost around €2.50 each to rent for the whole day – bring cash just in case the vendors don’t accept cards.

However, there are also many beaches that have no facilities whatsoever – which is ideal if you don’t want to be surrounded by other holidaymakers!

You don’t have to travel far to these places but it does help if you have a car (or at least get on a bus) for the more remote beaches.

My top recommendations are Ranti Forest Beach, White River Beach, Faros Beach (Lighthouse Beach) and Sandy Beach!

Visit Limassol

Less than 40 miles down the coast lies Limassol, another bustling town that is worth a visit if you want to experience another lively holiday resort more developed than Paphos.

Sandy beaches with palm trees and sunbeds

The marina is gorgeous and so is the castle area in the Old Town. There are also some stunning beaches in the Limassol district.

Wander around the fascinating archaeological site of Kourion, spend the day at the popular Fasouri Water Park and take a relaxing walk around the Municipal Gardens.

There are plenty of cafes along the promenade, and a large shopping mall called My Mall in the city with hundreds of eateries, stores and even an ice skating rink!

Troodos Mountains

You can’t visit any part of Cyprus without exploring the gorgeous Troodos mountains!

Take a tour and let your guide teach you about the local history, the stories behind the popular wineries and the friendly villages. We went on the 100% Cyprus tour and it was absolutely brilliant, check it out here.

I’d recommend taking a tour because it means that you’ll stop at the most interesting points without wasting time. The mountain area is huge so trust the guides who know what they’re doing and where they’re going!

You might want to combine a tour of the Troodos Mountains with a day trip to the Blue Lagoon, or you might prefer to stay inland and explore more of the culture, traditions and heritage.

Old Town

The Old Town is a definite must-visit when you’re staying in a boutique hotel in Paphos! A huge part of it’s been recently restored, making it a lovely place to amble around.

Take a look at the many museums, craft shops and artisan markets – before appreciating the fantastic bars the Old Town has to offer.
