Situated on the gentle slopes of the Kyrenia mountain range, is the Riverside Garden Resort. Their spacious array of accommodation and facilities is spread throughout eight acres of fragrant gardens, simply awash with the colours of summer: the crimsons and mauves of bougainvillea, the brilliant whites of jasmine and the rich greens of countless varieties of plant-life. The Riverside Garden Resort is wonderful all year around, in the winter months guests can enjoy plucking oranges and lemons from trees on their terrace!
This well-maintained, family-run holiday resort is one of our most popular Kyrenia choices. It offers fantastic, tastefully decorated accommodation, including premium hotel rooms with Jacuzzi showers and stunning picturesque views, as well as traditional bungalows with private garden terraces and a homely atmosphere. Following the choice of 3 pools to either swim, shoot down a slide or simply sunbathe in bliss, guests can also enjoy a spot of tennis, followed by a revitalising massage, then spend the evening enjoying some live music in the restaurant or a relaxing drink in their cosy Ranch Bar. The Riverside Resort is a hidden Mediterranean mountain of treasure, with something to offer for everyone.
Cyprus Paradise Experts Recommend
A car is advisable at this resort, although not essential as there is a very reliable and regular courtesy bus to Kyrenia Town as well as to the beach (seasonal only). If you like walking, the only water fall in Northern Cyprus is found in the next village above the Riverside, ask at reception for the best route to Malatia village. The Lapta coastal walk is another favourite place to have a stroll, it’s a lovely purpose built promenade along one of the most stunning coastlines of Kyrenia, just make sure you take a camera, the amazing views are not to be missed! Ask the receptionist or your friendly Tour Rep for directions, it’s only about a 15 minute drive away! The delightful Sardunya Bay is at the end of the walk, where you can stop to have a rest with a refreshing drink and light snack on soft golden sands.
If you’ve hired a car, stop off on the way to Kyrenia to enjoy some water sports at Escape beach and have a venture around The Peace and Freedom Museum nearby, featuring a historical war memorial monument - great for a quick sightseeing snap!
There are plenty of surrounding restaurants and bars to choose from. Within a 15 minute walk, Acmenya is the most popular with a lovely menu and a large children’s play area for the kids to enjoy. They also serve fancy cakes and coffee if you fancy a spot of afternoon tea. Further down on the Lapta Strip, The Calamari, Riverside’s sister restaurant offers fantastic seafood and a selection of tasty alternatives as well as stunning views over the coast. Riverside will also be able to arrange free transport to this restaurant for you if you book via their reception desk. The Lapta strip also enjoys The Fly Inn and The Lodge, which are both great for some evening entertainment, hosting regular karaoke and popular live music events.Please note that some services and amenities may not be available during low season.
