Enjoy all that this wonderful island has to offer

Fancy a Spring getaway? Well, beat those winter blues and head for the Cypriot sun with Spice!

Cyprus, in the eastern Mediterranean, has a rich, turbulent history stretching back to antiquity. Known for its beaches, it has a rugged interior with wine-growing regions. It’s separated into a Greek south and Turkish north, with the capital Nicosia also divided. Coastal Paphos is famed for its archaeological sites relating to the cult of Aphrodite as it is believed to be where the goddess first came to earth and is ‘where the gods go on holiday’. The dividing line between Europe and the Orient, Cyprus has so much to offer and that’s not even mentioning the great weather!

Location & Itinerary

Cypriot food can also be amazing so if you fancy eating out one lunch you’ll be sure a of treat, venture out with your follow members to sample it! Meze is a delicious way to acquaint yourself with the local cuisine, tantalising the taste buds with a feast of small dishes, ranging from creamy hummus to spicy grilled sausage, and everything in between. Heavily influenced by Turkish, Greek and Middle Eastern cuisine, Cypriot food includes some culinary stars unique to the island, including haloumi (helimi in Turkish), and the kebabs are also in a league of their own. And the desserts are irresistible, flavoured with almonds, rose water and pistachios and ranging from creamy rice puddings to gloriously sticky baklava.

When we visit at the end of April/early May Cyprus is an ideal place to soak up some early spring sun. During April and May, days are pleasantly warm with average highs of 22 degrees, but temperatures may drop at night on average to around 15 degrees; still considerably more pleasant than the UK but you may want a fleece or jacket available for the evening! Cyprus also benefits from around 11 hours of sunshine in May and just one day of rain on average.

This holiday is available to book for either 7 or 10 nights. If you are booking on a share basis we can only share you with someone on the same duration.

Inclusive drink package

You can opt to pre-book an inclusive drinks package with your half board stay at the hotel. This includes all local and international alcoholic drinks, soft drinks and hot beverages available in all Bars and Restaurants in the hotel. Excluded are the superior quality drinks such as Blue/Black label, VSOP, Cognac, Champagne, and others marked with an asterisk on the menus.

The drinks package is unfortunately only available on a per room basis – this means that if you are booking on a twin share basis both members in the room must sign up and pay the supplement. If you book a single room then no problem but if you are booking on a twin share basis we will share you with someone else who has also requested the drinks package (room share requests can still be made but please ensure both of you want the drinks package!).
