Dear Friends,

We are really getting into the mood now, with all the Christmas lights and decorations up in the hotel, however the weather has been holding on to summer at around 24 degrees celsius...perfect for some Winter Sun! We remind you again that our Festivities Programme is available on line (or in printed version if you are staying in the hotel) and we have some great treats available this year.

Despite being in the 'winter' months, we still have activities and entertainment available in the hotel with live music every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at our Captain's Bar and every one is welcome. There is a full time animator available with a fun-packed programme for our younger guests and families and every Friday night we have Cyprus Night in the Palladium Restaurant with a folkloric show. The Phoenician Arabic/Mediterranean Restaurant is open every Wednesday and Saturday from 7.30pm and outside guests are also welcome.

Crest Water Sports and Crest Dive Centre are also open for business. Offering a range of water sports, 'Discover Scuba Diving' experiences, snorkeling, diving courses, diving trips and packages. For more information, please contact the Crest Dive Team at ( or by calling (+357) 25 634 076 / (+357) 99 346 633 or the Crest Water Sports team at ( or by calling (+357) 25 635 101 / (+357) 99 302 077.

November was a busy month for the hotel with lots of small and big groups staying in our resort. We welcomed The Terrorism and Electronic Media Conference,Touring Club Italiano, European Presidency Groups and not to mention having a wonderful Art Exhibition of famous Greek Artists brought to Cyprus by Argo Gallery. We would like to thank all of those in the position to choose St Raphael Resort for their important events and hope to welcome you back in the near future.

Our Serenity Spa has introduced some great Winter Specials using Cocoa and Chocolate. Treatments range from Facials to body wraps and massages and they make the perfect Christmas Gift. This also ties in nicely with the Autumn Olive Oil Specials which are still on offer due to popular demand which start from just EUR30 per treatment. Come see some of our great products and Christmas ideas this coming Friday, 7th December between 2pm-8pm at our Neoderma and Decleor promotional day. Furthermore, we are offering all our newsletter subscribers an amazing Christmas present: contact us now quoting 'newsletter offer' for an exclusive offer to all newsletter subscribers of a free Medy-Jet Massage (worth EUR30) with any treatment or voucher bought before 20th of December, 2012 (conditions apply).

Sailor's Rest also has some great winter specials coming out. These are currently being printed, but do ask in the restaurant for what is available for a sneak preview of what will be on offer. My personal favourite is the scallops with sweet chilli sauce and two of the new desserts which have valrhona chocolate.

You may be pleased to know that we once again have some amazing plans in store for new areas and renovations to be ready by the summer season 2013 and while I am not yet at liberty to say exactly what we are doing, I'll give a hint that some of our plans have something to do with both alcohol and weddings :)

Wishing you all the very best in the run up to Christmas and for a wonderful New Years Eve wherever you are! Watch out for our official Christmas e-card this year - it's going to be a good one :)

Our warmest regards,
Farah Shammas
