About Bellapais Gardens Hotel


Nestled beneath the ruins of medieval Bellapais Abbey is the Bellapais Gardens, a tranquil, relaxing boutique hotel bathed in sunshine yet hidden from the crowds. Crafted in traditional materials, this beautiful hotel is a little gem, voted the world’s best boutique hotel in 2012 by Trip Advisor.

Guests can enjoy a variety of local Cypriot and international dishes at the restaurant, which features a cosy fireplace.

Throw open the windows of your spacious modern bungalow at the Bellapais Gardens and soak in the sights and smells of the citrus and fruit trees that fill the lovely gardens with rich scent. Relax on your balcony or private terrace, and enjoy the freedom of your own private space, knowing the facilities of a North Cyprus boutique hotel are just a short stroll up the garden paths.

Relaxing, peaceful swimming pool

The stylish swimming pool at the Bellapais Gardens invites you to spend lazy days by the pool in the North Cyprus sunshine, accompanied by the rustle of palm tree leaves and the busy buzzing of bees on the flowers in the garden. Enjoy a cool dip, chat with fellow guests, gaze up to the mountains above, or just bury your nose in a good book. 

Beautiful views of Bellapais Abbey

At night, enjoy a poolside drink from the bar, and admire the mighty walls of the Abbey floodlit from an angle most visitors never see. Come in June during the Bellapais Music Festival, and you'll hear classical music played by top international artists drifting down from the Abbey above. Magical!

Atmospheric restaurant with amazing views

The Bellapais Gardens restaurant is a delight with tables on the restaurant verandah enjoy wonderful views over the rooftops and down to the Mediterranean Sea beyond. Beautiful at breakfast, lovely at lunch, stunning at sunset! The chef's tempting menu offers traditional Turkish Cypriot dishes including slow-roast kleftiko, as well as crisp salads, tasty steaks and fish fresh from the boats. You may even need to book - locals love this restaurant too.

Lots to see, lots to do

The charming village of Bellapais is just at the end of the hotel drive, so you can walk in the cool of the mornings to explore the atmospheric ruins of Bellapais Abbey. Wander high into the Five Finger Mountains to discover carpets of wild flowers in spring, or the cool of shady pine trees in summer. Or just sit under the Tree of Idleness and relax and watch the world go by! If you want to feel the sand between your toes, the sparkling Mediterranean Sea is just a 10-minute drive down the mountainside, you can be on the beach in no time. 

Tranquil setting on a sloping site

The hotel operates a no under 12's policy too, so you won't be sharing the pool with over-excited youngsters. Do be aware that some of the paths from the bungalows to the pool can be steep - the hotel is on a mountainside after all!

Easy transfers from North Cyprus flights to Ercan Airport

Transfer times from Ercan Airport to Bellapais are quick and easy thanks to the new ring road around Kyrenia. An airport taxi transfer can whisk you past the town and up the mountainside to the tranquility of the Bellapais Gardens Hotel in around 40 minutes.

"Our favourite hotel in North Cyprus"

We've stayed at several hotels in North Cyprus but return again and again to Bellapais Gradens for the excellent warm welcome and attentive service we receive year in, year out. We first found the hotel on the gonorthcyprus website and were impressed by the reviews. It's safe to say that we enjoyed our first trip so much several years ago that we have returned three times since. We always get a great deal from...

gonorthcyprus, including transfers, and we love staying at the hotel. It's not OTT luxurious but it is rustically comfortable, clean and very welcoming. The food is amazing, the staff can't do enough for their guests and the setting is tranquil. A faultless stay time and again. We look forward to coming back for our fifth visit next year!

"Our second visit to Bellapais"

We booked a week away at Bellapais Gardens with our agent gonorthcyprus just after Christmas. We were definitely getting a bit of the winter blues and having been to Bellapais before we knew it'd be the perfect place to relax and enjoy some beautiful scenery. It's a lovely quiet hotel set in scenic gardens with fantastic views from the mountains over the sea. The accommodation is comfortable and welcoming, the...

staff are friendly and happy and the food is amazing. Just brilliant for a peaceful post-Christmas break to recharge your batteries after all that stress! Superb again, we will be back!

"Beautiful views - and food!"

We've just returned for our holiday at Bellapais Gardens, which we booked with gonorthcyprus, and what a lovely time we had. The hotel has a fantastic setting in the mountains, near to an old ruined monastery - it's very atmospheric and wonderful to look out over the scenery from the balcony. The hotel itself is characterful and luxurious with many unique touches. Staff were friendly and attentive, however...

English levels could be improved among the waiting on staff. This didn't affect our stay though. Our room was very nice and clean, well maintained and equipped, and the food was delicious - every single meal we had was cooked to perfection and competitively priced. We could really see why people come back time and again - we hope to return!
