NEWSLETTER MARCH 2012

Dear Friends,

Firstly we would like to thank all of those who sponsored us in our efforts in the Limassol Marathon. We raised an amazing €600 (UK£500) and eighteen members of our staff competed in the Corporate Race with the fastest acheiving 59th place. If anyone would like to donate some money, it's not too late - you can visit our 'Just Giving' page at http://www.justgiving.com/St-Raphael-Resort-Limassol-Cyprus-Limassol-Marathon-March-2012 to support the World Food Programme. The main photo above shows the team on the 18th of March when they participated in the Limassol Marathon.

We are pleased to announce that our new Octagon Restaurant is in its final stages of completion and we hope to open the restaurant this coming weekend. We will be able to show you photos of the renovated and expanded restaurant in the coming weeks. The Octagon will continue to be our main breakfast and lunch restaurant offering brand new buffet areas with new menus too. We also be offering a la carte and will be happy to host private parties, gala dinners and events in the evenings. For more information, please contact groups@raphael.com.cy.

We have also finished our renovation of the Amphibion pool toilets in time for the summer season which has already begun. These new toilets also offer changing facilities for our guest and members, and we are sure that they will be much appreciated.

March was a busy exhibition month with St Raphael Resort exhibiting at Confex in London, ITB in Germany, The National Wedding Show in Birmingham and MITT in Moscow. We were very pleased to have won yet another award in Russia as a Leading hotel in Cyprus. We are delighted to have so many partners and associates around the globe and look forward to welcoming many new guests, as well as our valued repeaters, to our award winning resort.

For any guests in the USA, you may have seen St Raphael Resort featured in the famous television game show, 'Let's Make a Deal'. We were chosen to be the top prize to be won and are looking forward to welcoming the winner this coming year. The lucky winner has won a seven night stay including three meals, spa treatments, a meal at Sailor's Rest and their transfers. Do check out the moment the prize was won on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1ewZxQsZiY

We also have more competition winners as we have randomly chosen the Facebook winners who 'liked' our St Raphael Resort and Serenity Spa pages this past month. The winners will be contacted directly and we hope they will enjoy their fantastic prizes soon.

As both Catholic and Orthodox Easters are coming up, don't forget to check our website for some great deals to enjoy a holiday or weekend away at this great time of year. We have some special events taking place, including our traditional Magiritsa soup midnight meal and Greek Orthodox Easter Lunch. For further information and bookings please call (+357) 25 834 200.
