Cyprus all-inclusive hotels for a fully catered island escape

At these Cyprus all-inclusive hotels, settling in on a sun lounger for a fully catered trip is the main mission of your holiday.

We’ve chosen bases to suit every budget, from inexpensive accommodation offering a smorgasbord of international buffet dishes to upscale options featuring luxurious Cypriot-themed à la carte dining.

Having food and drink on tap – think fruity cocktails and pistachio-coated baklava – means less time finding a restaurant and more time exploring. Whether you have your sights set on the clear aqua-toned waters of Nissi Beach, the ambient ancient necropolis Tombs of the Kings or a lush vineyard-covered valley, Cyprus will awaken your sense of adventure as well as your appetite.

A Cypriot hotel with five outdoor pools for refreshing dips

Prepare to sun yourself down at the Blue Flag beach or next to one of the five themed lagoon pools flanked by eye-catching water features at Olympic Lagoon Resort Paphos. The kids will be pleased to know one of these is a Mayan temple replica featuring water slides, while the grown-ups can use the atmospherically lit spa and wellness centre as their own personal playground.

Entertainment, along with a couple of crèches, a kids’ club and a teens’ club, is on hand to keep younger guests busy too. When the children are ready for a nap, retreat as a family to your bright and airy room, split by sliding doors to give the grown-ups a little extra privacy.

If you’re not bringing the kids, you can embrace the peaceful atmosphere of this Cyprus all-inclusive’s adults-only section. Alternatively, why not spend your time flitting from restaurant to restaurant? There are six all-inclusive (very tempting) eateries here. Choose from options as diverse as the Captain’s Deck, a Cypriot tavern where mouthwatering mezze is served on checkered tablecloths, and hearty American burgers with milkshakes at the 50s-themed Rock ‘n’ Roll Diner.

A break at an idyllic Ayia Napa all-inclusive hotel

Dive head-on into the vibrant culture of Ayia Napa from Anmaria Beach Hotel or use it as a haven to escape from the hustle and bustle. This resort has a pool nestled among palm tree-studded gardens as well as bliss-inducing facilities such as a cryo-sauna and a Jacuzzi.
