FEBRUARY 2013 NEWSLETTER

Dear Friends,

Welcome Spring! And what a glorious welcome it has been too, with temperatures reaching nearly 25 degrees in Limassol, we are well and truly on our way to Summer.

February has been an interesting month for us with a busy hotel occupancy and lots of exciting changes in the hotel. We were pleased to welcome guests from all over the world, including the UK, Germany, Russia, China, Ukraine, Lebanon and more.

We are also pleased to have quickly changed our carpeted lobby area to solid wood parquet, have welcomed our new designer bar furniture of fabulous colours, changed the floor of the Palladium Restaurant and are on our way to completing an all new Honeymoon Suite for wedding couples and honeymooners.

The St. Raphael Yacht Club organised a dinner party and nights accommodation at Apokryfo Traditional Houses at Lofou on the 2nd of February 2013, for it's members. For more information on how to become a member and participate in specially organised activities, please contact Mr. Marios Michaelides (St Raphael Marina Manager) on (+357) 25 834 254 or e-mail marina@raphael.com.cy. The dinner started at 1900hrs with wine tasting in the cellar with Mr. Sofoclis Vlasides, an expert oenologist. This year his lecture and wine tasting focused on the secrets of the Cyprus Commandaria and the muscat wines of our region.

Valentine's Day at Sailor's Rest was a sell out dinner with all customers leaving very excited about the delicious set menus offered. We are pleased to be offering some scrumptious treats for Women's Day on the 8th of March 2013.

We also have another great promotional day at the Serenity Spa Friday the 8th of March, celebrating International Woman's Day. Don't miss out on some great offers, discounts and previews of some fantastic new Summer Products that will be available in the coming months. For those of you thinking about summer hotel and spa memberships, now is also a great time to find out more.

Finally, we are pleased to be welcoming the Limassol Carnival which starts today and goes through until Sunday the 17th of March. We are of course looking forward to our own annual Sailor's Rest Carnival Party this Saturday the 9th of March. The party this year will start at 9pm and entrance tickets cost only EUR10 each including one free drink. To avoid disappointment, reserve your tickets from now by calling 25 834 242 or emailing sailors@raphael.com.cy as over half the tickets have already been pre-purchased.

We look forward to hearing from you all soon and welcoming you back over the coming months.
