Now that travel is starting to come back to life following the complete shutdown of all things travel and tourism, due to the unprecedented global pandemic, it’s time for all those in need of a break to escape, refresh and recharge to look into the best and safest holiday options for them and their loved ones post-COVID-19.
Villa holidays have always had their strong selling points. Having your own private space to enjoy, a private pool without any opening hours or fighting for a sun lounger, the need to keep check on the dining times for breakfast, lunch or even dinner – but in the current times, this type of holiday seems all the more appealing.
So as world travel restrictions are gradually being lifted and holidays can resume, it seems likely travellers’ habits will have shifted, with social distancing and private accommodation replacing crowded communal pool sides and evenings of shared buffet dining.
Guests will be seeking to get away with their family to spend quality time together after having been in lockdown for months, and the private villa holiday option looks set to be more popular than ever.
When booking a villa with enough bedrooms for everyone, every member of the family can relish the luxury of their own private space. So once the kids are finally in bed, parents can have the rest of the evening to themselves without having to worry about waking them with the noise of clinking glasses whilst enjoying the beautiful sunsets with the perfect bottle of Cyprus wine.
One of the biggest selling points of a villa right now is that guests can remain relatively self-contained, should they choose to, without needing to use shared facilities such as pools or restaurants. For those who want sheer isolation this holiday accommodation choice could be a major draw, which allows travellers to really spend quality time together under one roof, offering the “A Home away from Home” feeling, only with the added extras and benefits.
“Luckily at Aphrodite Hills Resort, we did not need to create a new product to meet what may potentially be this season’s tourism needs” reveals Telemachos Hassapis, General Manager, Aphrodite Hills Property Management, a part of which is the Holiday Residences division. He adds “Private villas and the concept of self-catering holidays are something we developed many years ago. The only thing that will change this year is the thorough disinfecting of the properties in addition to the detailed cleaning, prior to each arrival.”
At our multi-award winning five-star resort, the Holiday Residences offers independent stunning villas with private pools and beautiful luxury apartments with shared pools all located within this spectacular and secluded hillside paradise overlooking the Mediterranean, off the south western coastline of the island Cyprus, just a short drive from either Paphos or Limassol.
All guests choosing to stay in any of the many properties of the Holiday Residences can retire to the privacy and safety of their own villa or apartment but still enjoy the conveniences at hand within the resort and an array of sports and leisure activities on their doorstep should they wish to venture.
Guests can practice golf on the renowned PGA National golf course, practice their back hand at the tennis academy which also features the newly added Padel tennis, improve their shots at the football academy, learn horse-riding, pamper themselves at The Retreat Spa by Atlantica, as well as have lots of child fun at the kids club for children ages 3 to 12 years. For meals, we could not leave out the picturesque Village square in the heart of the resort offering endless culinary experiences in a tranquil and ambient setting.
At Aphrodite Hills Resort, villas and apartments come in all shapes and sizes perfect for a couples to large families, with budgets ranging from the most cost‑effective options up to the exclusive properties that allow guests to live a lavish experience, even if just for a week or two. This resort can be considered a beautiful destination full of life and plenty of things to do, but at the same time a place where you can withdraw at any time. Nowhere else on the island offers the combined experiences of sociability and isolation, and at very affordable prices.
