Amavi, MadeForTwo Hotels
Winner of Tripadvisor’s Best of the Best award for 2022, Amavi Made for Two bills itself as “pure heaven,” and one needn’t wonder why. This 5-star haven is tailor made for couples desiring to rekindle their relationship, or who are just starting out on their life together.
One of the resorts which occupy the stretch of beach down the coast from historic Paphos, in southwest Cyprus, the Amavi stands out for its quality of service, its atmosphere, its superb food, and its spotless grounds. It’s only a ten minute walk to the sights of Paphos, and just steps away from a beautiful Blue Flag beach. The Amavi’s half board dining experience is a dine around system allowing you to sample meals from each of the resort’s four signature restaurants, including the opportunity to take in the extraordinary Cypriot sunsets on the rooftop Immenso Restaurant, or on the outdoor terrace of the Fort O Lana.
The Evera Spa and Wellness Center is second to none in its expert consultants who will assist you in crafting your spa experience, its couples treatment rooms, its sauna and steam facilities, and its top shelf spa products by Natural Spa Factory.
Customers absolutely loved every phase of their stay at the Amavi, singling out the perfect condition of the rooms, the staff, the food, the freedom of movement that comes with no kids around, the privilege of using the same lounger with the lounger allocation system, and the resort’s proximity to Paphos. The Amavi enjoys a high rate of repeat visits.
The Amavi offers 140 rooms and suites, all designed with comfort and romance as paramount priorities. Color schemes are a restful, eye-pleasing tan, crème, and blue. Ground floor rooms feature four poster beds with side curtains for that extra bit of privacy. Rooms feature free Wi-Fi, Automatic touch screen room control panel, cashmere pocket spring king size beds, microfiber and down pillows, USB sockets, ironing units, fold-up luggage racks, hair dryers, and terraces or balconies, among many others.
Deluxe Room Sea View
The Deluxe Rooms are the Amavi’s main room type. Color scheme is classically Mediterranean: lots of light blues, whites, pastels and light earth tones. There are coffee and tea making facilities. Marble bathroom is appointed with a full sized window for added natural light and sea views, bathtub with rain shower, first class toiletries, TV speakers, and his and hers sinks. There’s a private balcony, and the view of the sea is to die for.
Junior Suite Sea View
This suite is a definite step up in space and luxury. “More” is the watchword here: whether it’s more space, or expansive views from the terrace which wraps around two sides of the building, or privacy due to its elevated position, the Junior Suite Sea View will not disappoint. Whether it’s the premium microfiber and down pillows, the pocket spring king size mattress, full-length bathroom window affording a wonderful sea view whilst taking a relaxing bubble bath, or more prosaic items like the USB sockets and daily replenished mineral water, the Junior Suite Sea View is well worth the upgrade.

Food and Drink
The Amavi boasts 4 signature restaurants: the Nocturne, the Immenso, the Fort O Lana, and the Ezaria. Together they provide an incredible, wide-ranging gastronomical experience customers rave about.
The Nocturne, in the Amavi’s lower lobby,features Mediterranean-themed meals crafted by Theodor Falser, Amavi’s Michelen-starred consultant chef from Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy. Dining room features tables for two, with space for two guests, a red, gold, and rich hardwood color scheme, and beautiful, unobtrusive live piano background music. Both standard and vegan menus are available, with dishes such as pan flashed scallops, beef tenderloin, and Caprese cake (almond meal, chocolate, powdered sugar) for two on offer.
The Immenso is the Amavi’s spectacular Asian-themed rooftop restaurant, where an unforgettable sunset dining experience awaits you. The sun goes down, the sky flames bright orange, red and yellow, then the stars come out, one by one, as you enjoy the company of the one you love. Menu offerings include sushi, sashimi, nigiri, and seafood and vegan poke.
Taking its name from the Paphos Medieval castle, the Fort O Lana is a Mediterranean-style terrace restaurant which gives you al fresco dining at its best. Specializing in Cypriot cuisine, Fort O Lana’s menu choices are largely locally sourced. Both vegan and traditional fair are available. Here you can sample such traditional fare as kolokithakia, sea bass, baked sausage, and, for dessert, anari cheesecake.
Ezaria is the place to go for more casual dining and to observe breakfast, lunch and dinner being put together. The restaurant is modeled after the traditional Greek trapezeria, or dining room (taking its name from the latter part of that word). You can dine indoors and enjoy the view through the floor to ceiling windows, or take your meals outdoors in the open air on the garden-bordered patio. Ezaria features a rotation of themed nights, which include French, Italian, Mexican, Asian, and Indian cuisine.
There are three bars at Kanika Amavi.
Selene (Moon) is the place for a nightcap. Classy and sophisticated, with a black and yellow fern pattern to the carpet and a tall, mirrored back bar which displays the numerous colored bottles on offer, Selene feels a little moon-like in its atmosphere. Most evenings you can listen to live music as you sip your favorite cocktail and watch the dexterous stylings of Selene’s expert mixologist.
The Sapphire Pool Bar is Selene’s polar opposite- here it’s all about augementing your day of fun in the sun with a cooling beer, refreshing soft drink or sparking water, or a colorful cocktail. There’s both swim-up and lounge service. Add a snack to your beverage and your day is complete.
The Lounge bar is light and airy, with a similar fern design in the carpet, except the color scheme is sky blue and white. Relax in on of the bar’s wingback chairs and watch the wind in the fronds of the palms, with the blue of the sea in the background. The Lounge serves double duty as both a bar and coffee shop. Enjoy the fresh air of the Lounge’s veranda as you sip your French coffee, soft drink, or alcoholic beverage.

The Saphire Pool is an expanse of palm tree-bordered blue water which merges into the waters of the Mediterranean. It has a swim up bar and abundant lazy loungers.
The Evera Outdoor Pool offers lots of swimming space for your water workout. The pool is bordered by tropical greenery which provide additional privacy.
