Soothe your soul, brush all your cares aside, and relax at the Ayii Anargyri Natural Healing Spa Resort in the quaint village of Miliou in the Paphos district. Nestled in a quiet forest off the Paphos-Akamas road, it is the perfect place to get away and reconnect with yourself.
From natural springs, waters enriched with sulphur bubble up and provide the spas rooms with the healing ingredient used in its treatments. The springs have existed for ages, while a church dedicated to the saints of healing Cosmas and Damianos in 1649, has been restored on the sight, after centuries of conquest. History says that they were healers and were travelling in the Middle East, Greece and Cyprus, healing people using the Sulphur water of the area. The church was destroyed in 1821 by the Ottoman conquest
From 1860 to 1870 part of the building, most likely the church, was used as school with Teacher the priest who was serving the church.
The best-kept artefacts are: The stone inscriptions on the rooms opposite the church, advert from old advertisement on newspaper of 1918, old check out bill of a customer from the 16th of September 1935 who stayed 14 nights and paid GBP 3.16.
After many years of planning, the concept of the Natural Healing Spa took shape. The historical building, was restored carefully and sensitively to recapture their original character and the same style is mirrored in the new Spa and bungalows that were added.
