About Cyprus

Cyprus has long been established as a holiday destination, with its temperate climate in the winter and sun drenched beaches in the summer, its many attractions bring different types of tourist every year.

In more recent times, Cyprus has emerged as one of the leading spa destinations in the Mediterranean and is recognized as having a diverse choice of spas, including Day Spas which offer the essential needs of the modern woman, such as maintenance facials, manicures, pedicures & waxing and also cater for the urban man with treatments to provide stress relief as well as grooming. Mineral Spring Spas make the use of the natural healing properties of thermal springs renowned to be beneficial for joint and muscular ailments, with Thalassotherapy Spas offering freshly pumped Mediterranean seawater into pools of different salinity and temperature to provide the unique curative effects of mineral enriched seawater in combination with treatments utilizing products of the sea such as seaweed and sea salts.

Most of Cyprus’s 4 and 5 star resorts now boast beautiful spa facilities offering the guest a respite from the sun and tourist attractions, with many guests now selecting a Hotel for its spa facilities. The standard is very high with many resorts receiving awards and accolades, with distinctions such as the “Best Spa Resort of the World” and “Best European Spa”.

Many Hotels take advantage of their Spa facilities to offer Corporate Pampering to their conference and incentives groups. This offers the ”burnt out” executive quality time with his peers and gives the Company an opportunity to show their appreciation. Larger spas can cater to up to 200 stressed out executives per day with their circuits of Thalassotherapy pools or Thermae Heat rooms and these have become annual events that have shown to improve morale and increase productivity, especially when incentive based.

Apart from the many pampering and relaxing offerings, more and more people are looking for a destination that offers Wellness and Recuperation. Some resorts have embraced wellness tourism and have collaborated with specialized wellness tour operators to offer packages which include nutrition, exercise programs and treatments. In recognition of the demand for a healthier lifestyle, wellness packages focus on the client as an individual, providing knowledge and a positive experience that the guest can take home with them in order to achieve their lifestyle enhancing goals.

Whether the guest to Cyprus is looking for holistic wellness, boot camp motivation, recuperation after surgery or medical procedure or pure unadulterated pampering, the world class spa facilities and activities available on the island tick all the boxes. Add to that the Cypriot hospitality, Mediterranean cuisine, the cultural and historical sites and Cyprus becomes the spa destination to be emulated.
