Cyprus is known as the Island of Love due to it being the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of Love.  Aphrodite Hills Resort is a stones throw away from Aphrodite’s Rock where Aphrodite is said to have risen from the waves. What location could be more perfect to exchange wedding vows with the love of your life?

Villa weddings are a wonderful choice of venue for your big day in Cyprus; they offer you a flexibility that you may not necessarily find at other wedding venues, so if you are looking for an intimate venue where you can take control of the finer details then a villa wedding may be just for you.

And when it comes to villa venues in Cyprus, Villa Rio on Aphrodite Hills Resort is a stunningly beautiful choice. This is one of the most opulent villas on the resort and trust us, it brings the wow factor even before we’ve waved our magic wedding décor wand!

The villa has a huge 25m pool and spacious terraces including a large lawned area which is perfect for both ceremony and dinner reception. The hot tub in the garden is an added bonus too. Villa Rio also hosts a great roof terrace with 360 degree views – a great spot for wedding photos with the sunset in the background!

The spacious and beautiful mature lawned gardens can be arranged and setup to suit the style and theme of your wedding, adding that important personalised touch. Let us know your ideas and we’ll bring them to life! Add a DJ and or a Band with a dancefloor and you can dance the night away under a canopy of beautiful stars.

There are wonderful catering options available for villa weddings too; all hand-picked and offering delicious and delightful menus. The large kitchen at Villa Rio is definitely a benefit for caterers, as well as all the space on the terraces – whether you choose a buffet, BBQ or set menu, no set up will feel crammed here.

The interior of the villa has been furnished and decorated to the highest standard and this opulence lends itself well to the special occasion of your wedding. The villa itself sleeps up to 10 people comfortably and has plenty of space in the sumptuous bedrooms and bathrooms for the wedding party to get ready on the big day itself. Aphrodite Hills Resort has many villas and apartments within close proximity, so accommodation for your guests is nice and simple too; we work closely with specialist rental company ‘’ who have the best options and offer a wedding group discount too.

In this exquisite setting, the resort offers you recreation and relaxation beyond compare.The resort is the first and only golf, leisure and real estate complex on the island. It stretches across a whopping 234 hectares of land, divided by two plateaux, East and West.

The resort plays host to a range of facilities and activities, all designed to keep you entertained, invigorated and relaxed during your holiday – there’s an award winning Spa, the PGA National Aphrodite Hills 18 hole golf course, gym, tennis academy, soccer academy, horse riding centre, and a great choice of restaurants and bars.

If you would prefer your ceremony at a chapel setting, St Catherine’s Chapel on Aphrodite Hills Resort is a beautiful choice and is just a 5 minute drive from Villa Rio.

The options for your wedding day itinerary are wonderful at villa Rio; for example, whilst we transform the villa for your wedding, you can escape and have a lovely relaxing breakfast at the clubhouse restaurant overlooking the golf course. Your stylists, again hand-picked, can come to you at the villa, so there is no need to worry about having to travel off-resort.
