The hotel you’ve dreamed of…

Cyprus has long enjoyed a world wide reputation for the high standard offered in hotels. A number belong to large international groups, but many are still family-owned. All offer guests warm Cypriot hospitality. There is a wide range to choose from, some are small and traditionally styled, decorated with local stone and furnishings, whilst others are new and very modern, built to European style with Cypriot flair and attention to detail. All have the unique ability to combine a relaxed friendly atmosphere with business efficiency. Whenever you have time away from the conference table you will want to relax in the sunshine and enjoy a good swim. All hotels have beautiful pools, and if you fancy a dip in the clear waters of the Mediterranean, there are a number of excellent beaches in each of the coastal resorts. Twenty-nine beaches in Cyprus have been awarded the prestigious European Blue Flag award for their high standard of cleanliness and safety. Although the amenities provided by hotels vary, the high standard of rooms offered to guests does not. Rooms are spacious, well-designed with comfortable furnishings and air-conditioning for added comfort during the summer months, and reception staff will quietly and efficiently meet all your business requirements, leaving you time to enjoy the hotel's leisure amenities. Cyprus is well known for its delicious cuisine which is an interesting combination of European and Middle Eastern dishes and local specialities. Hotel food and beverage managers will happily design and со- ordinate special menus for your company's private functions and business dinners to be enjoyed in the luxury of the hotel's function rooms, and can advise on the wide variety of excellent local wines available.

Excellent facilities. As a conference and business destination, Cyprus has much to offer all types of organisations and every year hosts over 600 business events, welcoming companies and organisations from all over the world but mainly Europe and the Middle East. Cyprus is the ideal place to meet, talk and exchange ideas in the relaxed and comfortable surroundings of the island's excellent conference facilities. The International Conference Centre in Lefkosia is the island's flagship for conferences. It was purpose-built twelve years ago using the latest in design and technology and offers comfortable seating for up to 1,200 delegates. If you are planning something on a smaller scale, there are a wide range of excellent venues that are perfect for seminars, lectures, exhibitions and fashions shows. Staff at your DMC will offer information and advise on choosing the one best suited to your company's requirements.
