1. Cynthiana Beach Hotel

Beach lovers will toss their towels in the air for joy over this resort’s secluded location: by a soft white-sand beach on a rocky headland lapped by the Mediterranean. Every aspect revolves around the sweeping sea views – from the two raised pools to the restaurant terrace. Homely rooms, decorated in sand-and-sky shades of beige and blue, have balconies or terraces with garden or sea views. You’ll get more of the same outlook as you graze the bountiful buffet in the Iris restaurant. If for any remote reason the pleasures of beach lazing should start to fade, Paphos centre is an easy 8km drive away, crammed with historical and archeological sites.

2. Noah's Ark Deluxe Hotel & Spa

Spa Hotel, Hotel

A striking development close to Famagusta Bay in North Cyprus, and constructed in the style of Noah’s famous ark, this is an awe-inducing world of its own with a vast holiday village, outdoor pool, casino and spa complex. Sleek rooms that let the sea views be admired from private balconies; suites add seating areas, private saunas and hot tubs. You’ll never run out of new places to eat out with a whopping eight restaurants and bars, then go and throw shapes in the nightclub. Heavy night? Cool off in the outdoor pool, a spa or soak up the sun on the private beach. Just don’t forget to leave time to frolic in the water park.

3. Basilica Holiday Complex Hotel

A stone’s throw from Paphos’ pretty fishing harbour and beach is this collection of light-filled studios and one-, two- and three-bedroom self-catering apartments. They’re dotted around shaded gardens, and you can prepare lunches in your kitchenette to eat al fresco on private balconies. Alternatively, treat yourself to a banquet of mezze, poolside at the traditional Cypriot Taverna. (The best escape from the Cyprus sun is in the two freshwater outside pools.) Beyond the hotel there’s local heritage to lose yourself in: the resort is next to the historic ruins of St Paul’s Pillar and the famous Paphos Mosaics.

4. Malama Beach Holiday Village

Soft shades and textures, sea and garden views, characterise the contemporary rooms and suites at this resort north of Ayia Napa. The latter have a comfortable lounge, fully equipped open-plan kitchen-dining space and a large balcony. Many overlook the two generous outdoor pools lined with palm trees and pretty blue parasols shading sunbeds. The choice of places to eat is dizzying, including the live-cooking-station-lined food court for Med-style grilled meats and fish; also the breakfast and dessert corner for waffles and cooling ice cream. Dial it down in the subterranean spa with a grotto-like softly illuminated indoor pool, while the children paint and play in the kids club.

5. Azia Resort & Spa

The barefoot luxury vibe at this serene resort is aided by light and airy rooms created from purely natural materials including hemp, linen and local stone in soothing shades of white, cream and caramel. Menus are locavore, too, sourcing ingredients from the hotel’s Morokambos Plantation. Here in the village of Chloraka, close to Paphos on the west coast, you’ve got the best spot on the island for sublime sunsets – from balconies or terraces with sea or mountain views. There are three pools with adults-only sections, and a dreamy spa as well as a kids’ club. If you fancy a jaunt, the Tombs of the Kings is an intriguing UNESCO-protected necropolis, just over two and a half miles away.

6. Olympic Lagoon Resort Paphos

Ideally suited for families and adults, this is a rambling 276-room holiday complex on the south-west coast, with a variety of views: there are five themed swimming pools (indoor and outdoor), a well-stocked spa and a handful of restaurants and bars to keep everyone happy. All rooms have a private terrace or balcony as well as bathrooms, with bathtubs and rainfall showers, connected to a sound system. Bathrobes and slippers are provided for your stay, as are pool towels. Two miles from the Old Town of Paphos, you’ll not need to go far to enjoy the harbour or the ancient Greek and Roman ruins.

7. Melissi Beach Hotel & Spa

This beachfront beauty woos guests with a huge lagoon-like swimming pool complete with spouting fountain, swim-under bridge and bar fronting Ayia Napa’s stretch of golden sand. For further de-stressing there’s a hydro-massage pool at the spa, with jets and water features. Contemporary is the watchword, given the gleaming all-marble lobby decked out with cubist sofas. Revamped rooms – muted off-white and cool grey, dark-wood floors – induce further relaxation, aided by recessed mood lighting. Choose a sea-facing room for the ultimate holiday selfie spot or an Executive for a wow-inducing whirlpool on the balcony. When you’ve explored the resort, it’s just a 10-minute walk into Ayia Napa.

8. The Royal Apollonia

Bountiful beaches are the calling card of this luxury hotel, on the coast in Limassol, where you won’t get bored – ever. A spa with sauna and steam room, an unusual Dead Sea climatological room, tennis courts, three restaurants and the bluest sea beyond the outdoor pool will keep you stimulated from breakfast until bedtime. Your room or suite is understated, with unobtrusive modern furnishings and private balconies; book the Double Spa with Jacuzzi suite for the ultimate balcony experience. When you need to replace calories depleted in the gym, dine around the resort (and the globe) on traditional Greek cuisine (great meaty mezze starters) and Japanese specialities such as sushi, sashimi and maki.
