Behind the Scenes: Celebrating Christmas at Kanika Hotels & Resorts

Cyprus may be warmer than most European countries come December, but that doesn’t mean that Christmas isn’t a gloriously festive occasion, with the whole island coming to life with the magical twinkle of fairy lights, while colourful markets and fairground attractions make for truly fabulous days and nights out. And when it comes to stays in festive fashion, Kanika Hotels and Resorts pull out all the stops to ensure a festive season that’s as memorable as can be. What can you most look forward to? Here’s an overview of what’s being prepared and planned to accentuate the holiday season cheer at the glorious Olympic Lagoon Resort and Alexander the Great Beach Hotel Paphos, as well as the Elias Beach Hotel in Limassol.

  1. Festive dining

It certainly wouldn’t be Christmas or New Year without a festive feast and the talented chefs at Kanika Hotels & Resorts let on that they’ll be cooking up a storm for all guests this holiday season! Group Executive Chef, Antonis Nicolaou, is super excited about the gastronomic atmosphere that everyone can enjoy in December and the start of January.


With sumptuous gala dinners for foodies to dig into, as well as a variety of Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day buffets, all the festive favourites will be given a real creative twist with a wide array of platters and salads, hot items, and endless dessert choices.  “Our guests will taste special gastronomic delights from both Cyprus and abroad, with contemporary fine dining touches, especially at our gala dinners,” says Nicolaou. “It’s all about unique ingredients, with an emphasis on quality and presentation.”

To add to the festive glee, gastronomes can also enjoy cooking workshops and demos, champagne breakfasts, and other interactive food events to bring on the holiday cheer.

  1. Sparkling events

Excitement reaches an all-time high at Christmas-time when heaps of events give guests good reason to rejoice, no matter what your age! Whether you love getting creative, have a soft a spot for music, or can’t wait to get sporty, there is something for everyone. The list of events to enjoy at each hotel over the festive period are endless, be it arts and crafts, dancing, performances, kids’ discos, quizzes, movie magic, cookery and cocktail demonstrations.


“One of the things I love the most about the events are the regular guests who come along to enjoy them every year,” enthuses Evgenia Papadopoulou, Guest Relations Manager at Elias Beach Hotel.  “Doing this job for over 8 years now, I know so many people personally, we’ve all become friends, and one big family! So that gives all of our events a really personal touch and it feels lovely to see the same happy faces.”

  1. Dreamy decorations

With Christmas trees shining bright, baubles glimmering, and tons of festive lighting bringing fairy-tale charm to Kanika Hotels & Resorts this Christmas, the housekeeping team has gone all out to ensure that your stay is as magical as possible.


“Bringing joy to our guests is what makes the festive period feel really special,” says Executive Housekeeper, Julia Sofocleous. “We’ve tried to create a fairy tale fantasy world, and to really bring the Christmas spirit to life.” What’s more, during the holiday period, you can even learn a good bit about how to decorate yourselves, with candle creation workshops and stocking-making in the mix.
