Kikkos Monastery

We recommend you visit Kikkos Monastery which is about an hour drive from Sentido Thalassa Boutique Hotel & Spa.  The monastery provides overnight accommodation on a first come first serve basis but there is always availability.  Here you could join the priests of a monastery tucked away in the mountainside in their morning routine.

After a night in the tranquility of the monastery venture onto Troodos mountains and visit the little villages and taverns in the surrounding area before returning to Sentido Thalassa Boutique Hotel & Spa.

A unique experience for you and a life time memory to take away from your stay in Cyprus.
