A rare combination of sleek designer decor with a genuinely child-friendly ethos and caring staff, the beachfront Almyra a short walk outside Paphos on the island of Cyprus and just a 15-minute transfer from Paphos Airport offers true relaxation for parents and is a failsafe option for luxury family holidays in Europe. 

The adult-only infinity pool and spa is backed up by excellent childcare (for ages from 4 months to 12 years), a lovely private beach and top-notch food. There's even a Baby Go Lightly service for pre-booking all manner of baby and toddler essentials that will help you lighten the load. Choose from a variety of simple but stylish interconnecting rooms and suites.

The Almyra is a great place for Christmas family holidays, with marshmallow and chestnut roasting, kids' parties and crafts, festive movies, and gala Christmas and New Year's Eve dinners. Alternatively, it's worth considering for an Easter family holiday, when there are cooking demonstrations of Cypriot Easter specialities, family Easter egg hunts, bunny races and more.

The Alymra Hotel is about 15 minutes’ transfer from Paphos airport, making it especially ideal for family holidays to Crete with young children.
