The soothing sparkle of fairy lights, the indulgent taste of festive treats, the excitement of exchanging gifts and bonding with friends and family – no holidays are quite as magical as Christmas and New Year!
As the festive season fast approaches, many of us are already dreaming of time out away from the office or just escaping the everyday routine. And here in the Mediterranean, there’s no reason to huddle indoors or wave goodbye to that beautiful, carefree summer feeling.
Christmas in Paphos is usually a gloriously sunny affair, with average temperatures by the coast hovering between 18–20 degrees Celsius at the end of the year. This means you can enjoy vibrant festivities while soaking up the sunshine under clear blue skies. Just imagine unwrapping your presents beside palm trees, building sandcastles with the kids instead of snowmen, and savouring a fine holiday feast with views of the glistening sea. All this, with luxurious accommodation, heaps of entertainment, creative classes and workshops, fun surprises, gala dinners, and extravagant parties and shows in the mix.
Welcome to the magic of Christmas in the Paphos sunshine at Kanika Hotels & Resorts!
December is a notoriously hectic period in the lead-up to Christmas Day. However, at Alexander the Great Beach Hotel, the festive season is all about forgetting the ‘to-do’ list and recharging those batteries. Instead of rushing around, you’ll get to focus on relaxation, laughter, and inspiration. The varied festive programme includes a quiz to test your knowledge about the highs and lows of 2023, flower arranging, Christmas card-making, Christmas movies, and fun games like hoopla, shuffleboard, target toss, and much more.
Indulgent afternoon teas are also a highlight of the holiday agenda. Even if you can’t stay at the hotel, you can still enjoy a delightful afternoon with friends or family in the luxurious lobby with chocolates, cakes, pastries, and local treats to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Gastronomes spending Christmas in Paphos can also delight in festive menus, gala dinners, and rich buffets. Special culinary extravaganzas are planned for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day. Many events will be accompanied by live music to keep you on your toes throughout your festive evenings. And when it’s time for that final nightcap, the feelgood fun continues with uplifting performances and musicals by the Kanika All Stars.
