About Bellapais Monastery Village
Classical Elegance, Timeless Views
From the moment you turn off the mountain road towards Bellapais to the 4 star Bellapais Monastery Village hotel, you'll be struck by the amazing views down the mountainside to the coast below.

With the relaxing atmosphere and discreet services of a country club and an adults only policy (no under 12's allowed), this is a delightful place to stay. Totally chill out on your North Cyprus holiday, whether you're soaking up the sun by the pool, dining al fresco on the roof terrace, or just sitting on your private villa terrace.

Atmospheric Dining under the Stars
Dining at the Bellapais Monastery Village is a delight, with wooden tables and comfortable rattan chairs set out on the top terrace so that every table can enjoy cooling breezes and 180 degree views of mountain and sea. Delicious open buffet or the choice of A la carte The whole hotel is bathed in the gentle glow of lights, perfectly complimenting the twinkle of stars above and the shimmering lights of Kyrenia below.
The main restaurant inside has traditional style windows and tiled floor giving it a truly Cypriot feel not often found in 4 star North Cyprus holiday hotels. There is a weekly Kleftiko (slow roast lamb) evening during summer months and yes, the staff will get everyone up and dancing!
A Pool with a View
Or, more accurately, two pools with a view and a half! The square pool offers the chance to stretch out and swim in the Cyprus sunshine, whilst the shallower round pool is ideal for a cooling dip and chat with new-found friends. Thanks to the hotel's no children policy, you can enjoy the peace and quiet on a comfortable sun lounger, drink in hand from the pool bar, all day long. If you like a more lively atmosphere, (and more kids around) all guests are welcome to use the facilities at the Bellapais Monastery Village's sister hotel Oscar Resort down in Kyrenia.
Indoor Swimming Pool and Spa Area
For winter sun holidays in Cyprus, the hotel also has a spa-style inside swimming pool with comfortable double day beds, a sauna, a steam room and exercise bikes for the energetic! Massages can also be arranged - just ask at reception.
Peaceful, Unhurried Atmosphere with Unobtrusive Service
The Bellapais Monastery Village staff are experts at making you feel at home, and anticipating your requirements, be it a drink by the pool, a lunchtime snack, a book from the lobby library, or another cushion on your sun bed on the top terrace.
Walking Distance of Bellapais and the Mountains
Bellapais village is dominated by the stunning ruins of its ancient abbey, perched high on the mountainside. The village is a delightful mix of traditional restaurants, cafes and shops, with little streets winding into the mountains, all within a 20 minute of the Bellapais Monastery Village uphill . Walkers will love the location too, with easy access to mountain trails to enjoy spring flowers and cool breezes in the summer.
Just 2kms to Kyrenia
The pretty harbour and mighty castle of Kyrenia are just 3kms downhill, perfect for a day out exploring the twisting medieval streets or enjoying lunch by the sea. A courtesy bus runs daily during the summer season from the hotel to Kyrenia or hire a car and explore more of North Cyprus.
Quick and easy Transfers from Ercan Airport
Thanks to its position above Kyrenia rather than the far side of it, transfers from Ercan International Airport to the Bellapais Monastery Village take just 30 minutes. So, with a flight to North Cyprus, you could go from plane steps to poolside in under an hour!
Disability Access and No Children Under 12
Please note that due to the hillside location and number of steps, this hotel is not suitable for those with mobility difficulties. Children must be aged 12 or over.

"Lovely and great value"
If you're looking for somewhere friendly for a getaway that won't break the budget, Bellapais Monastery Village is ideal. We've visited twice, both times with gonorthcyprus, and both times we've had a really good deal. The staff are friendly and speak good English, our room was comfortable but could have done with a bit of a touch-up. Decent breakfast and other meals quite basic but nice enough, too. The hotel...
setting is quite steep so may not be ideal if you struggle with mobility. Really nice well-kept pool area. There are a lot of cats, bear in mind if you have allergies! We really enjoyed our stay for the second time.

"The views !"
We were looking for a quiet ralaxed hotel to base ourselves for a walking holiday, and it proved ideal we were staying in the mini bungalows in the gardens , surrounded by lemon and Olive trees and a 2 minute walk to the main Hotel for breakfast and the bar. The village of Bellapais is an uphill walk of around 20 minutes and has some very nice and reasonable restaurants and if you are staying in the area they...
will provide a free taxi. Overall a good break, the Hotel, the walks and weather were just what we needed.

"Lovely relaxed break at Bellapais"
My husband and I booked a short break at Bellapais Monastery Village with our agent gonorthcyprus, who got us a great price. The hotel is a little tired here and there but you can overlook that because the place is so clean and welcoming. The staff are just lovely and so helpful, our room was comfortable and breakfast was excellent. The pool area is welcoming and very well kept and the hotel's location is...
ideal, just five minutes away from the centre of town in a taxi so very cheap to get out and do a bit of sightseeing. There is a monastery and an old mill within walking distance, too. Overall a great price on a pleasant, relaxing week away.
