Some information on the Annabelle Hotel
A sincere welcome awaits at Annabelle, a family-run oasis set within six acres of lush gardens on Paphos’ Mediterranean seafront.
Cool, peaceful interiors, understated design and warm, caring service combined with 5-star luxury to create a distinct atmosphere of unpretentious elegance.
Four restaurants and five bars showcase seasonal produce, delicate local wines and traditional Cypriot charm, with live music almost every night of the week.
Glittering waterfalls reflect the tantalising blue of the Mediterranean; swaying palms slow life to a blissful pace and languid days roll into leisurely nights with impeccable ease…
Annabelle is the closest hotel to Paphos’ picturesque medieval castle and harbour, yet its seafront gardens, outstanding cuisine and impeccable service have earned it a reputation as one of the town’s best-loved retreats.
The hotel’s 218 airy rooms and suites each have a private sea- or garden-view balcony or terrace. Meandering freeform pools, waterfalls, palm trees and rambling flowers create a magical setting in which to wind down and discover Cyprus’s languid charm. During the summer, a variety of watersports are available nearby, with mild winters placing year-round golf – and four championship courses – within a short drive.
