NEWSLETTER OCTOBER 2010

Dear Friends,

It is a pleasure to contact you all, now at the official start of the 'winter' season when it is still a sunbathing 28 degrees in Cyprus! Our rates have now dropped and yet the weather remains perfect, so do check out our new lower rates, special offers and promotions for the coming few months.

On that note, we are pleased to announce that our Christmas and New Year's Festivities Programme is now available and will be up on our website by the end of the week. Do please contact us or see our website for some amazing deals at that time for both locals and visitors from abroad.

As you can see from the main photo above, this has been a very exciting and rewarding month for St Raphael Resort. Our Sales and Marketing Manager, Mr Prodromos Chamboulides, attended the World Travel Awards ceremony on the 1st of October and received our two awards: for the third year consecutively as CYPRUS' LEADING ALL INCLUSIVE RESORT and for the second year in a row as the MEDITERRANEAN'S LEADING RESORT.

The most exciting news we have going on over the next few months, are our plans for our new Beach Tavern and of course the much awaited new Spa. We have not yet decided on names for either outlets and are happy to open a competition for ideas for names....the winner will receive a complimentary weekend break at the hotel for two people in a sea view room on bed and breakfast. Please email info@raphael.com.cy with your ideas. Both new outlets are due to be ready and launched in April next year, in good time for the main summer season. We have some amazing plans for both projects which will give a whole new identity to the two areas and are sure they will both be well received by all our guests.

As it is now the season for Conference and Incentive bookings, we would also like to remind those in the industry that we will be attending EIBTM at the end of November so please do contact sales@raphael.com.cy to arrange an appointment with us. The Ministry of Interior hosted their 'Mediterranean Office for Youth - Pilot Project for Youth Mobility' on the 18th and 19th of October where the French Minister of Immigration, Cyprus Minister of Interior and many more VIP's attended. This was one of the many successful group bookings that we have received over October so please contact groups@raphael.com.cy for your direct tailor made quotation.

We will also look forward to seeing anyone attending the World Travel Market in London next week.

Sending our Best Wishes as always and looking forward to seeing you all soon,

Farah Shammas
Business Development Director
