Attraction details
Owner description: Set in a picturesque valley surrounded by vineyards and orchards, overlooking an unspoilt panorama of rolling hills and deep blue sea, lays Minthis Hills. Part of a Natura 2000 site the resort offers an organic experience, blending style and sustainability with Mediterranean hospitality and service. At the heart of the resort is an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Donald Steel in 1994, it is the oldest course in Cyprus and has recently undergone extensive enhancement by Mackenzie & Ebert. At an altitude of 550 metres above sea level it is a course for all seasons, enjoying cool breezes and low humidity during summer and a pure freshness during the cooler months. The course encircles a twelfth century monastery, Stavros tis Minthis, where the resort derived its name, with holes surrounded by grapevines, walnut, almond and olive trees. As you would expect from a championship golf course, there is also a luxurious two-thousand square metre clubhouse which looks over the stunning fairways. The Clubhouse lounge, golf terrace and sports bar offer the perfect space for drinks, while the restaurant, with its award winning culinary team, trained by Alain Ducasse, transforms the finest local and international ingredients into culinary delights. The tranquil setting and mesmerizing mountain views provide the perfect scene an intimate, personal setting for weddings and christenings which can be held at the monastery, or in the beautiful surroundings of the clubhouse. Customised programmes can be arranged to your exacting desires, while the Chef can tailor a menu to suite your tastes.

“Great clubhouse - disappointing golf”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

The welcome here was friendly and the course not overly busy as can be expected in August, given the heat. Unfortunately the course is looking a little run down and they appear to have a serious problem with broad leaved weeds on the greens which meant putting proved to be a real lottery. Some of the fairways and surrounding areas need work and the tee boxes are generally quite uneven. The club house however is one of the finest we've seen and the food at half-way was excellent. There is an impressive practice area and driving range adjacent to the course.

“No golf required, lunch well worth it”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Quiet quality location. Over looking the golf course, was nice to watch what was going on on the course. Staff were very polite and friendly. Ordered a steak sandwich minus the mushrooms, came with plenty of onions which I like.. The steak was cooked perfectly, came on a soft roll. It was absolutely lovely, one of the nicest I have had. We also had the duck wrap, very very nice. Plenty because although you may think there is not much the chips are huge chunks and very filling.
Makes a nice change of scenery and atmosphere.
Prices good, we expected to pay more being at the golf club but they seemed to be at reasonable tourist prices without pricing us none golfers out.

“Minthis Hills Golf Resort”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

I have reasontly visited Minthis Hills Golf Resort. Excellent Club.
We stayed on a special golf package with www.simila-cyprus.com
The Club is superb , it has been there since 1994 , and has just under gone a massive improvement programme. The staff and Pro are great . The all new Club House is fantastic , complete with Pro shop and excellent restaurant , with views over the course.
The Club is just a short drive from Pafos and they are currently building a "Cyprus village square" and luxury Villa complex. The plans also include a Spa complex.
The Golf club is fully open now , and is a challenging course. The altitude is just over 500 metres above sea level , so it is still ok to play all day , under the beautiful Cyprus sunshine.

“Lovely location away from the humidity”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

Located in the hills above Paphos its a very green course that is in part very challenging. The fairways tend to be a bit "fluffy" but apart from that its a nice change. The clubhouse is new and food and drinks very reasonably priced. I would suggest you get a buggy as its a bit steep in places, especially if you are playing in the summer its a bit too much in the heat.
