When it comes to pampering, The Retreat at Aphrodite Hills offers a variety of relaxation and beauty treatments designed specifically for the bride-to-be, the wedding guests and even the husband-to-be! So in preparation for your special day, choose one of the special packages and indulge yourself.

THE WEDDING PLANNER

Leave the details to us…couples can rest assured that the experienced team and the dedicated wedding planner at InterContinental Aphrodite Hills Resort Hotel will take care of all the necessary arrangements prior to and during your stay.

ROMANTIC SETTING

Couples looking to tie the knot can choose from a number of venues from the resort’s very own traditional chapel at the heart of the resort to the more contemporary setting of the Clubhouse, with its spectacular backdrop of the grounds. The venue chosen will be decorated exquisitely, with an in-house florist on hand to help you with flowers and bouquets. Candles can also be arranged.

ROOMS TO CELEBRATE

After the ceremony, there is great choice of venues available at the InterContinental Aphrodite Hills Resort Hotel including a magnificent ‘Morpheas’ Grand Ballroom which can accommodate up to 350 guests.

With the year-round mild climate of Cyprus, celebrating under the stars is a must and the resort has lots of outdoor spaces which can be used such as the Clubhouse terraces and the function lawn. These areas are ideal for ‘al fresco’ cocktail receptions, outside dining or even a firework display to end the perfect day.

THE FOOD OF LOVE

When it comes to wining and dining your guests, Aphrodite Hills has a number of packages to choose from including a ‘Pre-dinner Cocktail’ selection and a full ‘Wedding Banquet’ to name but a few. Wedding cakes are also made to order by the in-house pastry chef.

THE FIRST DANCE

Musical options range from a DJ to live acts, with something to suit all tastes and keep your guests entertained for hours.

MEMORIES

Wedding photography can be arranged by the resort and mounted into an album, ready for when you leave Aphrodite Hills, taking with you memories to cherish forever. The ultimate memoir however, is an olive tree which the happy couple will be invited to plant in the resort’s grounds to commemorate their marriage and hopefully revisit to see its progress in years to come.

Once all the formalities are over, the bride and groom can really relax and enjoy their honeymoon, making the most of the award winning, fully integrated resort which features the InterContinental Resort Hotel, a chapel, an18-hole championship golf course, golf academy, tennis academy, fabulous spa and the village square with shops and restaurants.
