ulti-million development Minthis Hills Resort in Tsada, Paphos, is the flagship Golf resort project of Pafilia property developers. The entire project covers a vast expanse of ground totalling more than five million square metres of fascinatingly diverse ground destined to incorporate the championship golf course, lifestyle facilities and superior residential enclaves.
Designed to create a harmonious balance between contemporary design and environment the master plan integrates the residences into the landscape, nestling them along the natural contours of the land to protect the hilltops and ridges.
The aim is to preserve and enhance the natural features, minimise site intervention and maximise views. The project features completely remodelled 18-hole championship golf course by talented designers Mackenzie & Ebert team in 2006 (originally, the golf course was designed by Donald Steel in 1994). Believing that the golf course should fit the landscape and the site the ‘new’ golf course features spectacularly flowing fairways that weave among the carefully tended olive trees and require expert accuracy to reach the challenging greens . The clubhouse has now been completed and there is an impressive driving range and practice facilities.
The distinctive contemporary architecture inspired by local culture blends seamlessly with nature and the design of the entire project, from the clubhouse to the luxury villas, incorporate modern and traditional aspects. The organic arrangement maximises the views, frontage and privacy of each residence while providing ample space for the clubhouse and amenities to form the heart of the resort.
The use of the three main components in all of the building designs are stone, wood and glass. The vernacular design provides natural ventilation and creates airy open-plan interiors, while large outdoor areas are designed for alfresco living.
The architecture focuses on indoor outdoor living with feature spacious terraces, infinity pools and outdoor fireplaces whilst the floors to ceiling windows frame the panoramic vista from every corner of your home. Minthis Hills offers seclusion in a remarkable rural setting and has brought a new dimension to Mediterranean living.
