This flagship luxury lifestyle resort by renowned Cypriot developer Pafilia, has opened one of the most significant and ground-breaking wellness sanctuaries in the Mediterranean.
Minthis is a stunning resort-style development located in a breathtaking hillside setting within a protected natural landscape. Woods Bagot has delivered the masterplanning, architecture, interior design and branding services to create a truly unique retreat lifestyle experience.
Influenced by the inherent beauty of the site, the area’s rich heritage and the availability of abundant sunshine, the masterplan has been carefully designed to preserve and enhance the surrounding natural features, minimise intervention and maximise views. The works include a major upgrade of an existing golf course and 12th Century monastery and the creation of 44 residential villas, a contemporary clubhouse, a wellness spa with a pool and a village centre comprising restaurants, bars and retail stores.
Talk to Julian Cross about Mixed Use
The villa designs are inspired by the vernacular of the surrounding mountain villages, creating a modern interpretation of a traditional Cypriot home. Designed to create a harmonious balance between contemporary design and the natural environment, the residences are sensitively integrated into the landscape, nestling along the natural contours of the land. Natural materials and warm neutral tones convey an understated luxury that blends traditional vernacular design with modernist elegance.
A considered and sensitive approach to the positioning of each villa maximises views, frontage and privacy. Every villa is planned around a traditional-style courtyard that gives access to shaded verandas and natural breezes. Openings capture the extraordinary vistas, both framed and expansive.
