MAY 2013 NEWSLETTER

Dear Friends,

We do hope that this newsletter finds you well.

The weather in Cyprus is absolutely perfect with the beautiful sun warming us daily and with a cool breeze to stop us overheating. With the recent banking situation of last March, we would like to reassure any readers that this has in no way affected our operations at the hotel, or indeed in the tourism situation on the island as a whole. Life has gone on and we still have so much to offer with our high quality tourist product.

On that note, we are so happy to write that on the 22nd of May 2013 our Sailor's Rest Lounge Bar Restaurant won the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2013. The accolade, on display at the premises, honours hospitality excellence and is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveller reviews on TripAdvisor, and is extended to qualifying businesses worldwide. Only the top-performing 10% of businesses listed on TripAdvisor receive this prestigious award. We would like to thank all our customers who posted reviews and hope to see more happy customer reviews in the near future.

The Summer Specials are available at the Sailor's Rest and have been received really well. We have also now started our daily BBQ lunchtime buffets at Seashells Beach Tavern for just EUR20 per person and EUR10 per child.

The new menu is also available with some great snacks for casual daytime dining by the waves. We will also have some fun entertainment evenings planned at Seashells this summer so do check out our Facebook page for more information on karaoke nights plus other themes.

This May, we once again welcomed our friends from the 53rd St. Barnabas Scout Group for the 2013 underwater & beach clean up. It was a fantastic day for environment protection and a great opportunity for all of us to make new friends with the same passion for nature and our sea. THANKS AGAIN TO ALL OF YOU !!!!

On the 8th of May, the Annual General Meeting of the St Raphael Yacht Club was held at St Raphael Resort in order to discuss past and future activities and to elect a new committee. For more information, please do contact Mr. Marios Michaelides on mm@raphael.com.cy.

Finally, I would like to end this newsletter by saying that we are happy to announce that we are looking into supporting a local charity for the coming season in 2014. We would like to get our efforts underway the soonest possible and are asking all our newsletter readers who work with various charities to please send us their valued proposals ( sales@raphael.com.cy) for different charities, which we may not have considered until now.

Our warmest regards,
Farah Shammas
Business Development Director
