NEWSLETTER MAY 2012

Dear Friends,

We hope this newsletter finds you all.

May has been a busy month with a smooth start to the season. Seashells Beach Tavern has opened and is attracting many happy guests and local clientele with its new expanded and value for money menu. In June, Seashells will be open also in the evenings for those who wish to enjoy a chilled evening relaxing by the waves and we are pleased to announce that every Wednesday, starting from the 6th of June, there will be karaoke from 9pm til late. Don't miss out on your chance to have a fun sing-song by the sea at this unique entertainment venue. For reservations, please call (+357) 25 834 262 or email info@raphael.com.cy

We would also like to remind you that the Sailor's Rest Lounge Bar Restaurant is offering Shisha (or hubbly-bubbly) for guests who enjoy this service, on the outdoor terrace which overlooks the yachts. For more information on the array of flavours and shisha fruit twists, please see our Shisha menu. Shisha is available from luch time till late.

On Wednesday the 16th of May, our UK PR Representative, Lena Georgiou, attended a promotional evening hosted by the UK Cyprus Tourism Organisation, AGTA (Association of Greek Cypriot Travel Agents) and the Cyprus Spa Association. The cocktail and dinner evening was held at London’s prestigious Dorchester Hotel and over 70 agents attended. The evening promoted Cyprus as an upmarket, year round destination and focused on the island’s sophisticated and luxury spa product. St Raphael Resort also donated a prize which was won by Mitzi Wynne-Jones from Sunidol Travel.

St Raphael Resort was also exhibiting at IMEX, the fair for Conference, Events, Groups and Incentives, in Frankfurt, Germany. I attended and was pleased to meet many old friends, new associates and partners and we look forward to welcoming many exciting events and groups in the coming year. For any group requests, please contact us for further information and assistance (groups@raphael.com.cy). This month we were proud to welcome the Cyprus Bridge Association for the 24th International Bridge Festival.

The St Raphael Marina and Yacht Club has also been busy this month organising two events for the occasion of the Kataklismos celebrations which will take place on Saturday the 2nd and Sunday the 3rd of June. The first event is a Flotilla and is open for all boats (Motor and Sail). It will start from the St Raphael Marina at 10am and head towards the Zygi Fishing Shelder where we will spend the two nights. There is no actual arriving time since motor yachts and sailing yachts can travel at diferrent speeds. In the evening a dinner (fish meze) is organised at Marcos Fish Tavern for the price of €30 per person including local drinks. The second event is a sailing yacht race which will take place on Sunday the 3rd of June. Prizes will also be given to the first three winners. For more information about these events, or how to participate in the future, please email marina@raphael.com.cy.

Finally, many of you will be pleased to know that Eden Garden has now been transformed into a games, fun, chill-out room for all ages while focusing more on our 12-18 year old guests. Now full of many arcade games, two footsie tables, a pool table, table tennis, card tables, games boards available, sofas and much more. We hope that our guests of all ages will find an area of the hotel to relax and enjoy their time with us. Eden Garden is located on Level 2 of the Executive Wing.

We hope to welcome many of you back this season. For those of you hoping to visit us last minute in June, we are sorry that we are already fully booked for most of June, however do check out our website for some fantastic deals to visit in July and throughout the year.

Best Regards,
Farah Shammas
