w&h's review and guide to Cap St Georges
Guest rooms and suites at Cap St Georges
At Cap St George, luxury is nocturnal – meaning that even when you’re asleep, the opulence continues. The hotel’s 202 rooms and suites have been masterfully designed for blissful slumber, with all the mundane aspects of bedtime lavishly infused to give guests a summer nightcap like none other.
Cap St George offers 15 different accommodation styles, all of which include terraces that spill into incredible views of the pool area below and the Mediterranean Sea. Prices start at around $596 (€583) a night for a Cap Thalassa room and can climb as high as $2,990 (€2,925) for a Residence Two-Bedroom Suite (complete with a private infinity pool). The hotel’s 14 Family Suites, which can sleep up to six and cost about $1,430 (€1,399) a night, are ideal if you’re traveling with children, while the Cap Deluxe Rooms, at $808 (€791), are an excellent choice for romantic getaways. Accessible rooms, equipped with support bars and wider corridors and door spaces, are also available.
A newly opened seven-bedroom suite called the Akamas Presidential Villa is the crème de la crème of the hotel's accommodation, however. This 990m2 space has an occupancy of up to 18 people and offers unrivaled sea views from an impressive infinity pool.
All rooms and suites, regardless of their size, share an aesthetic of maximal luxury in a minimalistic finish. Guests can expect king-sized beds in crisp ivory sheets, soft sofas in stone colors, and sprawling floor space in cool tile, along with all the usual comforts you’d find at a five-star hotel – like a stocked mini fridge and fresh coffee. If you’re in the mood for some entertainment at the end of the day, there’s also a 55in flat-screen TV, as well as high-speed Wireless Internet, should you need to work on your vacation.
This elegance continues in the ensuites, all of which include double wash basins, a free-standing bath, and a spacious rainforest shower.
Spa at Cap St Georges
A retreat within a retreat, the Cleopatra Spa at Cap St Georges draws on all the best aspects of Cyprus’ environment to bottle that idyllic feeling of being at one with nature without enduring its harsher elements.
The sprawling sanctuary boasts a world-class selection of facilities, including a 25m indoor pool, a hydrotherapy whirlpool, and a cold plunge pool, as well as thermal saunas, steam rooms, and aromatherapy showers.
A visit to the Cleopatra Spa is simply incomplete without booking one of its world-class treatments, all of which are done by expert therapists using luxury products from the likes of Valmont and Cinq Mondes. Guests are invited to select from an extensive list of pampering sessions, with treatments including full body massages and anti-aging facials.
Dining and bars at Cap St Georges
At Cap St Georges, guests can expect a small food court’s worth of options – although calling it that hardly does it justice. The hotel proudly caters to all tastes and diets, offering an impressive selection of ten restaurants and bars conveniently located within walking distance of one another.
For those looking to try local cuisine, Mesoyios is the place to be. With its carefully curated menu of freshly sourced fish and seafood, this Mediterranean eatery offers guests the very best that Cyprus’s waters have to offer. It doesn’t hurt that the dishes are served under a romantic canopy of olive trees against the backdrop of beach views and lapping waves, either.
If fish isn’t your thing, don’t panic – cuisines from further afield are aplenty at Cap St Georges.
Sapori offers an extensive menu of authentic Italian delights infused with truffle, rosemary, and pesto flavors, while Bonsai, the hotel’s Asian restaurant, is just a few meters to your left. With its menu of teppanyaki dishes and Japanese liquors, this high-end sushi house promises a magical culinary experience of Eastern flavors and traditions surrounded by wooden panels and cool marble.
Breakfast at Cap St Georges is served at the Yeronisos restaurant, where you can enjoy your first meal of the day beneath the rising sun on the seafront terrace. Expect an extensive buffet of Belgian waffles, bite-sized pancakes, and warm pastries, as well as healthier options like fresh fruit, coconut yogurt, and cereals. Indulgent hot breakfasts, like your classic English fry-up and cheesy Greek omelets, are also available.
If you’re craving a sugary treat between meals, head to the hotel’s gelateria and patisserie which serves homemade ice creams, desserts and pastries from 9am until 11pm.
For an afternoon tea or elegant evening cocktails, Chroma Lounge Bar at Cap St Georges is unlikely to disappoint.
Boasting 180 degrees sea views, a charcoal marble bar, and a geometric chandelier, this ornate lobby delivers a cosmopolitan experience imported directly from a New York City skyscraper – without the dizzying altitude, that is. Guests will be treated to the finest of drinks created by the bar’s expert mixologists, all whilst enjoying the sound of gentle piano and the panoramic scenery of Cyprus’s best sunset.
Things to do at Cap St Georges
In the dazzle of all this luxury, it can be easy to lose sight of Cap St George’s impressive list of amenities. The resort has three outdoor pools, one of which is Olympic-sized, as well as tennis, paddle and basketball courts. Other sporting facilities on site include volleyball, which can be played at the hotel's 130m private beach cove, along with table tennis and a mini football court.
For a morning gym workout, guests can also head down to the Nautilus Fitness Centre, where they’ll find state-of-the-art exercise equipment, a cold water indoor pool, and expert coaching from personal trainers.
For the little ones, the hotel has an all-day children’s club with a soft play area and premium toys. Children will be supervised by the center’s specially trained associates, who promise to deliver the ultimate summer camp experience with a carefully-planned schedule of fun activities and games. There’s also a crèche for toddlers, as well as a babysitting service at an additional cost.
For guests seeking local experiences, Cap St. Georges offers a bounty of activities in the surrounding area. Animal lovers will be right at home at the nearby George’s Horse Ranch and Pafos Zoo, while horticulturalists can flex their green fingers at Perivoli, the hotel’s vegetable garden.
Akamas Peninsula National Park, with its hiking trails, unspoiled beaches, and majestic views, is another excellent way to feed your inner nature warrior. Yacht excursions, fishing adventures, and vineyard trips can also be arranged by Cap St. Georges' delightful receptionists.
If you’re looking to take a night off from the restaurants at the hotel, Agora Tavern in Paphos is an absolute must. Located in the center of Old Town, this family-owned eatery offers a delectable menu of authentic Greek dishes – all served with the same warmth and efficiency you'll find at Cap St Georges. We recommend requesting a table on the rustic terrace, where you'll be able to enjoy your meal in front of the gorgeous views of the Cypriot landscape.
