NEWSLETTER JUNE 2012

Dear Guests,

We are proud to be writing to you after the most successful month in the hotel's history, the same month that we are pleased to commemorate our 25th year anniversary after our official 'soft' opening on the 29th of June back in 1987. The hotel has been through so many changes, improvements, memorable events and renovations in our 25 years and we have been honoured to welcome thousands of guests through our doors, many of whom have been repeat guests of ours since our very opening. We are also extremely proud to have 16 members of staff who have worked with us since day one, so the 29th of June this year was an especially emotional day for many. We plan to celebrate this happy occasion in July and will let you know what we got up to in our celebrations in our next newsletter.

Among many famous guests who frequent our resort, we have been especially honoured to have welcomed Mr. Christoforos Pissarides and his new bride Mrs. Rachel Ngai at Sailor's Rest on the 20th of June where they celebrated their recent wedding. Mr Pissarides was awarded the Nobel Prize for Ecomonics in 2010, the first Cypriot to have achieved this honour and it was our pleasure to create a perfect evening for the happy couple according to their specifications.

We were also happy to welcome more famous DJ's at the hotel this month, all of whom were performing at the award winning Guaba Beach Bar in Limassol. Two of the bigger names were Marien Baker www.marienbaker.com and Thomas Gold www.facebook.com/djthomasgold. For further information on visiting Guaba Beach Bar while in Cyprus, please see their Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/guababeachbar.

While on Facebook, don't forget to 'Like' our various outlets as well as seeing an amazing video posted on the St Raphael Yacht Club page of Dolphins off the Limassol Coast line.

The St Raphael Yacht Club also were pleased to hold their Prize Giving Ceremony on Saturday, the 16th of June at the Sailor's Rest Lounge Bar Restaurant after their Kataklismos 2012 race. The ceremony was at 7.30pm and all participants including the winners were invited to attend. The first three winners were S/Y ELIZAVETA, S/Y VIVALTI and S/Y GYPSY QUEEN. The S/Y Spirit of Jenny will receive a trophy for her excellent performance at the race.

Karaoke every Wednesday at Seashells has been received well despite many people opting to watch the football instead. We are pleased to have showed all the Euro 2012 matches, and later this month will be showing the Olympics, at Sailor's Rest, Seashells and the Captain's Bar. We also have live DJ performances with chill-out tunes by the waves at the Sailor's Rest every Tuesday and Thursday this summer, so don't miss out. We encourage everyone to pre-book a table at Sailor's Rest and Seashells Beach Tavern to avoid disappointment as these restaurants are very popular and busy at this time of year.

After the 100% occupancy of June, we do have some rooms still available for July and August, so please do contact us or see our website for further information about our great rates and Ultra All-Inclusive package. One of our TripAdvisor contributors summed up our service by titling his review 'Affordable 5 star excellence'. We sincerely thank Mr 'Doc2768' for his kind and honest words.

We look forward to a further 25 years of excellence and providing the best possible service, atmosphere and accommodation to our current and future guests. Thanking you all for your support and we look forward to seeing you all soon.

Best Regards,
Farah Shammas
Business Development Director
