NEWSLETTER JUNE 2011

Dear Friends,

What an exciting month it has been! We have successfully closed the month with a staggering 99% occupancy but are pleased to let you all know that there are still some rooms available over July and August - so get booking to avoid disappointment!

On Wednesday 8th June, we enjoyed a fantastic opening party for our latest venue, the new Seashells Beach Tavern on our award winning Blue Flag beach. For this event, a wonderful band who came all the way from the UK , 'The Man from Funkle', performed with hit songs and got everyone dancing. We were proud to have been sponsored for this event by 'Fine Wine Boutique' who offered everyone their new sizzling summer cooler drink, Spritzzoso, the classic Italian aperitif.

Seashells Beach Tavern is now open daily from 10am until late and serves a buffet lunch of salads, hot food and dessert from 12.30pm - 3pm every day for only €19.50 per person. On top of that, we have a perfect summery a la carte menu of salads, souvlaki, fish, sandwiches and calamari which is available throughout the day and evening. DJ's perform every Wednesday and Friday from 9pm-midnight and we are available for private parties and beach parties in the evenings with prices starting from as little as €15 per person. We are sure that this is the ideal, casual, summer location with a slogan 'Come as you are!' as guests are welcome to visit in beach wear for a relaxed day or evening experience by the waves.

On Wednesday, 13th July from 6pm-8pm, Sfera Radio Station will have a Live Link Party with famous DJ's performing live for both the guests of Seashells and those tuned in to to 96.8FM. Entrance is free and all are welcome to party at sunset with us at the latest hit restaurant of town.

We are proud to add that our sandy beach was awarded on Thursday 2nd June at 12 noon with the prestigeous international Blue Flag award for cleanliness, environmental commitment, water quality, safety and excellence. Mr Antonis Paschalides, the Minister of Tourism, Trade and Industry, Mr Alecos Orountiotis, the Chairman of the Cyprus Tourism Organision, and Mr Argyris Evagorou, the President of Pyrgos Local Authority along with many other local dignitories attended this award ceremony where Mr Andreas Gregoriou, the hotel's Operations Director, hosted a cocktail to welcome and thank everyone who attended.

The Serenity Spa will be hosting it's second 'Californiacation' Day on Sunday, 3rd July from 10am-4pm, where tanning and sun protection products will be demonstrated and on sale at discounted prices. This is all in the run up to our Spa Cocktail Day on Tuesday 5th July where we will be offering in house guests and local friends a special occasion to visit and see the new Spa between the hours of 10am-8pm, while also having the opportunity to have a free skin analysis by the experts. There will also be special offers exclusively on this day for Decleor and Neoderma products. You can book your private ten minute facial skin consultation by emailing spa@raphael.com.cy
