Does it have a spa and a kids club? Right! We’re going there! So this is a guest post of a First Family Holiday to Azia Resort and Spa Cyprus in October 2016.
If like me, you’re a parent in the UK, you may well be feeling what I’m feeling now. Both slightly relieved that the kids are back to school soon, and yet a little wistful that the long summer break has come to an end. And perhaps you’ll be dreaming just a little about future holidays, possibly even researching where to go already. If that’s the case, I want to introduce you to a fantastic place we just visited, on our first family holiday abroad as a fivesome, on the off chance you’d like to go there one day.
This is the view from our hotel room balcony at the Azia Resort and Spa, near Paphos in Cyprus. I’m not even sure how I first found this hotel, but I was doing a lot of online holiday research when I stumbled upon it. And I am so glad I did, as it really did have a little of everything we needed, and some additional luxuries that we…ahem…required. Such as a jacuzzi on the balcony. And a full breakfast buffet, with a nice man cooking omelettes to order every morning. Did I mention it also boasts a world-class spa?
We arrived by night, and as it was only a 20 minute drive from Paphos airport to the hotel, we were really there in no time at all.
Kids club from age 2.5 years
We spent 10 nights at the hotel, with some lovely friends of ours and their two children. One of the biggest successes was discovering that our middle child was crazy about the kids club. This was a pleasant surprise indeed. And I think this was all down to the warm welcome and genuine wonderfulness (is that a word?) of the woman who ran the place. You’re given a buzzer while the kids are at the club, which vibrates and flashes if you’re needed. So you’re free to roam around the hotel grounds as you like…free as a bird…well except for the small but important matter of the one-year old, who kindly had a nap on a few occasions so we could enjoy a cool drink by the sea.
