The power of Kanika

Kanika Hotels & Resorts is the leading hotel group in Cyprus, with established luxury hotels in prime resort locations across the southern coast of Cyprus.

Kanika, a driving force in the hotel industry

With roots dating back to the 60’s, the Kanika Group is the umbrella of three companies: Kanika Developments, Kanika Property Management, and Kanika Hotels & Resorts. Together they are a powerful force in the Cyprus hotel industry, with a track record of designing, developing, operating and managing high standard resort hotels that respond to market trends.

Today, Kanika Hotels & Resorts is the leading hotel group in Cyprus, with established luxury hotels in prime resort locations across the southern coast of Cyprus.


Going from strength to strength

Over the years, Kanika Hotels & Resorts have regularly earned industry awards based on guest feedback. Since 2012, the group has garnered over 151 prestigious awards from online travel sites such as TripAdvisor and Holiday Check, as well as major tour operators and Travel Weekly magazine. Awards were granted in various categories, such as Romance, Service, and Family Holidays, in some cases ranking the winning hotel among the top 25 in its category worldwide.

Other awards acknowledge the exceptional standards of all-inclusive offerings, environmental performance or the in-house spa experience. More specialized awards include the Environmental Keeper 2016-2017 award for the Elias Beach Hotel, and the Cyprus Export Award for Tourist Services, which is granted jointly by the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism and the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Kanika Hotels & Resorts is the only company in Cyprus that has earned this award three times so far.

The performance of the youngest member of the group (prior to the opening of the Amavi), the Olympic Lagoon Resort Paphos, and the number of awards it has earned has been particularly impressive, demonstrating that Kanika is steadily raising the bar. At the same time, Kanika’s intensive renovations schedule systematically upgrades all the group’s hotels, to ensure that repeat guests always enjoy a more attractive environment and better value every time they visit any member of Kanika Hotels & Resorts.


Resort hotels for every occasion

Kanika is the name behind the Olympic Lagoon Resorts, a sub-brand first launched in 2011, offering the innovative and highly successful Luxury All-Inclusive terms, based on Kanika’s intensive research to determine the wishes and expectations of today’s holidaymakers. In 2015, the second Olympic Lagoon Resort was launched in Paphos, taking the very successful concept to a more luxurious level, which has now also been implemented in the fully renovated and upgraded in Olympic Lagoon Resort Agia Napa.

Even before the overwhelming success of the Olympic Lagoon Resorts, the Group’s most established member, Alexander the Great Beach Hotel, stood among the most desirable destinations in Paphos. With its regularly upgraded facilities and much appreciated Half Board Plus gastronomy, ‘the Alexander’ enjoys an exceptionally high number of repeaters who return year after year.

In Limassol, the Elias Beach Hotel is a favourite among visitors who combine their business agenda in the city with the pleasures of this resort hotel, which is also a favourite among wedding couples, thanks to its beautiful gardens and pier.

The Amavi is the most recent, brand new concept hotel to join the family in September 2018 under the ‘Made For Two’ sub-brand of Kanika Hotels & Resorts. It is the first custom-built couples-only hotel in Cyprus, and yet another response to the latest trends in the leisure travel market.
