Ultimate Blue Lagoon Paradise - A World of Leisure

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 5, 2014

This is the first time I stay at this hotel, but several years back I was here to see some friends from the UK. The award-winning Olympic Lagoon has recently been expanded, upgraded and renovated beyond recognition. Stunning as it is now, it offers new and upgraded facilities & services and provides an immense variety of family-focused and adult-oriented amenities. The ideal haven of leisure. You see it is so huge that allows guests to enjoy their favorite aspect: the fun facilities for all ages, or the quiet corner designed for two.

LOCATION: Very close to the popular Nissi Bay area and only 130 m from the fine golden sandy beach Landa. Just 2 km from the Water Park, with nightlife, restaurants and the city centre 3km away.

CHECK-IN: Fast & efficient. We had our luggage loaded on a buggy and given a lift to our suite.

STAFF/SERVICE: The overall levels of service was beyond excellent and staff is consistently attentive. 95% probably more are Cypriots. Nothing is too much for them and they do their best to make guests feel the genuine Cypriot hospitality. The staff is extremely friendly and chatty so it did not take long to feel that we were among friends. You see, the personalized service makes guests feel valued and this is one of the reasons for the many repeaters. The stay was just 4 days but the excellent service, professionalism, innovation, the integrity and respect of the team made us feel at home. An extra credit goes to the guest relations manager Ele for her precious assistance and guidance, who even after we left, she emailed me to check if we had a safe trip back home.

HOTELS: The Kanika Hotel & Resorts rank amongst the most established hotel groups in Cyprus, and the Company owns and operates 4 other hotels and resorts. These are the Alexander the Great Hotel in Paphos, Elias Beach Hotel in Limassol, the Olympic Bay in Ayia Napa. -The Amathus Beach Hotel of Paphos will be transformed in line with Kanika’s pioneering ‘Olympic Lagoon Resort Premium All-Inclusive’ concept. It will open its doors in June 2015.

THE GROUNDS: The premises are vast and since it was our first stay here I had no idea what to expect. We entered through the back entrance, passed the beautiful gardens, and the closest we got I kept asking myself if all this was reality or just a fancy. It seemed obvious that guests were enjoying the perfect tranquility in the ultimate blue lagoon tropical paradise. The pool with the pirate ship and the waterfall reminded me a bit of Disneyland!
The key word is variety, and indeed there is so much to do here depending on your likes. From different room types to multiple pools and cuisine from around the world…the choice is up to the budget limit and interests of the individual party.

SUITE: Our brand new deluxe and so tastefully decorated superior room #706 was located on the upper floor in the exclusive adult-only wing of the ‘Fisherman’s Village’. The word ‘stunning’ is very little to describe the view. The double glazed windows opened to a private balcony with lounge chairs that overlooked the lush tropical gardens. So serene and peaceful, just couples here, experiencing the ease and luxury of a high standard hotel.
The refined interior is based on the style of traditional Cypriot village homes. Great care has been taken to create a fusion of cutting edge modernity with the Cyprus traditional style thus the elegant interior simplicity offers the ultimate in style and comfort. The subtle alliance of light colours, natural woods and textiles, the flow and pleasing lines of the furniture, all combine and contribute to the soothing atmosphere.

The 4 poster double bed was so comfortable adding to the warm and elegant décor. Plenty of storage space, a 31” plasma TV with free satellite channels, two chairs, a side table, a safe, hairdryer, bathrobes and slippers. Tea & Coffee making facilities and a Mini fridge stocked with welcome drinks.

The welcoming treat was a huge platter of fruit together with other delicacies, as well as a box of Cypriot delights. Each day we had one or two bottles of water and turn down service every night with two tiny chocolates placed on the pillows.

BATHROOM: The en-suite bathroom was extremely spacious with a Jacuzzi bathtub. The complimentary set of deluxe toiletries surprised me happily. I only came across them once, and they stand out for their exotic fragrance and smoothing properties. They are Italian hypoallergenic products that you will love.

Wi Fi connection is free but I noticed that there are several rooms especially in the main building where internet connection is really a problem. Actually, there is no connection at all. Of course guests can connect out in the lobby, pools and common grounds. I believe this is something the management has to consider for the coming season.

ALL INCLUSSIVE: Kanika hotels have adopted the popular all-inclusive concept. At the hotel the terms of stay include all meals, snacks, ice creams and a whole range of drinks and refreshments. Different restaurants serve culinary delights and treats from around the world, with local meze and speciality cuisine included.

RESTAURANTS: It is a delight trying out new flavors daily! The choice is endless, the restaurants are unbelievably better than what you can find outside…more than you can imagine, so there is no need to bother searching outdoors simply because the very best are here.
The Chefs of this hotel received numerous accolades this year at the HO.RE.CA 2014 Gastronomy competition, including a gold medal for their fish and lamb dishes, as well as other prizes for their wedding cakes and celebration desserts. They have indeed taken the ‘all inclusive’ to another standard and we felt that we were spoilt for choice.

If you love Japanese try the Zen tranquility of Kiku. You will certainly find the tastes tempting and the setting unique. The Royal Olympic or the 50s trend of the Rock n’ Roll Dinner. Every taste is equally valued and catered for!

Get to the watery surrounds of the Cypriot Taverna at Captain’s Deck. Mrs. Androula the Chef works miracles in her kitchen and the entire team of youngsters are loveable while the service impeccable. I remember sweet Eva, Pantelis, Tony and Achilleas. We loved the food and atmosphere and arranged to finish our 3 week trip to Cyprus with authentic Cypriot cuisine, and say goodbye to the whole team before flying back to Greece.

Dishes: ‘Avgolemono’ the soup of Mrs. Androula is heavenly. Never in my life had I tasted such a mouthwatering soup. Kleftiko, afelia, pligouri, pastitsio, keftedes and many more. Be sure to taste some local wine or the home’s wine which is excellent.

The Royal Olympic restaurant overlooks the Fisherman’s village with its lush gardens, and offers inviting indoor and outdoor seating, with a composed area reserved for adults.
Lunch time is a feast. The theme evening buffets are a paradise for food lovers with Chefs giving a live cooking show through their open kitchens. Excellent presentation exquisite tastes!

Breakfast is taken at this restaurant each morning and there is everything you could dream of. Name it and you will have it. Fresh ingredients, mouthwatering desserts, fresh orange juice! Enough to fill you up for many hours.

POOLS/LEISURE: 7 themed swimming pools in all…can you imagine it? The pools at the Olympic Lagoon range from the kid’s splash pool and family pools to adult-s only pools.

From waterfalls and whirlpools to a Lazy River that happens to be very popular -I would have at least 2 rides myself out here daily. Its unique watercourse with jets, drifts guests through a peaceful watery paradise, overpassing bridges, resting river-sites hidden under the tropical oasis.

I recall moments of absolute relaxation that we experienced by the Adult’s only Pool. The waiter service was second to none. The guys would spray our face with cold water, hand in cold towels to cool down, fresh fruit, a round of cocktails and everyone’s sunglasses would get cleaned while guests sunbathe. In the afternoon a chocolate dainty morsel. If this is not pampering….then what?

ACTIVITIES/ ENTERTAINMENT: It seems that animation and entertainment programmes are an essential part of the Kanika holidays. 40 exciting activities take place weekly dedicated exclusively to the young guests. Pools, sports areas, the Little Monsters Kids Club and Teez.
Adults have their share of course with indoor and outdoor sport activities, Yoga, Zumba, Aerobics and much more. There is something for everyone.

SPA: Recently renovated with expert therapists and upgraded treatment rooms, offers full menu for face and body therapies using world-class marine-based products.
Be sure to visit it even for once. Travel your “body, mind & soul” before returning home.

A relaxing massage individually tailored to the guest’s needs is a great way to recover from your flight or prepare for the journey home.
I had two out here, a Back and a Full Body massage.
My therapists Dalia and Beth managed to relieve all muscle and body tension right away and I could feel the difference for days. A huge bravo goes to the whole team for their efficiency, well programming and punctuality.

WEDDINGS: ‘Kanika Weddings’ has become synonymous with romantic celebrations in all Kanika hotels across Cyprus. Guests should just pick the preferred location and let the rest to the experts. Talk with the people behind this and rest assured that your wish is their command because they are simply professionals.

OVERALL EXPERIENCE: It is more than just a hotel. Despite its size we did feel the personal touch, & the Cypriot hospitality which I am after on each trip to Cyprus! Thank you guys for making our stay memorable. It is because of staff like you that makes us want to return. We really got spoilt and you guys became more friends to us than just a waiter/staff.
