Earth Day 2016!

Join the worldwide movement …
Do what’s right NOW!

April 22nd … is not just another single day … April 22nd is an Annual Event with a history of 46 years.

April 22nd 2016 is the 46th Celebration of Earth Day, on which day events worldwide are held to demonstrate and support the movement for Environmental Protection.

It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 192 countries each year. In 1970, the year of the first Earth Day, the movement gave voice to an emerging consciousness, channeling human energy towards environmental issues. 46 years later, more than 193 communities celebrate Earth Week, an entire week of activities focused on environmental issues.

More info about the history and all activities related to Earth Day can be found in the following link:

Today; April 22nd, 2016 we are entering the 46th year of this movement.
What our Team does at Elias Beach Hotel …

As a symbolic action in our hotel, we have decided to support this movement, by bringing AWARENESS about our ENVIRONMENTAL and SUSTAINABILITY efforts and actions and how WE CARE FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT, through information in a number of our hotel areas, especially beside the lifts, within the rooms themselves and through a board near our indoor Kids Club.

One of our main initiatives, which we are very delighted to present to you, with today’s occasion of Earth Day, is our Environmental Corner, on our lower Hotel Lobby area, near our Kids Club.

Together with the Cyprus Centre for Environmental Research and Education (CY.CE.RE) we have agreed to begin a cooperation on an annual basis, and bring awareness towards various activities for our island; Cyprus and its environmental aspects.

Following this initiative, we have proceeded to the following actions:

Creation of an Environmental Board

During this action, we have created an Environmental Green Board, with the name: “We care for our Environment”, where we have placed a lot of useful scientific information and details for the major environmental aspects related to our island; Cyprus, that would be of interest to our guests, visitors and team members.

Among these, we included the following information:

– The Flora of Cyprus

– The Fauna of Cyprus

– General information for the Cyprus Centre for Environmental Research & Education (CY.CE.RE) – see more for CY.CE.RE history and activities in the following link:

– Wetlands of Cyprus

– Beaches of Cyprus – Blue Flags

– The Forests of Cyprus

– Herbs of Cyprus

– Hotel’s Garden Plants

Scientific identification and recognition of 20 main plants of our hotel gardens, from the Scientific/Research Team of CY.CE.RE.

During the above action, we walked along our hotel gardens with our gardeners and members of CY.CE.RE, took photographs of our 20 main plants, and then proceeded with their presentation on our Environmental Board, with their name and a brief explanation of their origin.

Bronze Metal – We Protect the Environment 2015-2016

We were awarded with the above metal from CY.CE.RE, as protectors of the environment for the year 2015-2016.

For more details of our above green activities, you can visit our Facebook page link:

Further activities are due to happen in the future for the upgrade of our Environmental Corner, as well as the awareness and sensitivity towards our Sustainability & Environmental efforts.

Stay tuned with us for more of our Green Activities…
All together we can change the WORLD we live in! All together we can SAVE our PLANET!
What are we waiting for? The time is NOW. Let’s get this worldwide movement continue…

10th International OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO – Run with a smile! – Sunday 10th April 2016

Only few hours left until the 10th International OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO 2016, which will take place once again at Molos in Limassol, on Sunday 10th April 2016, from 07:30 hrs to 14:30 hrs.

The International OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO, is part of an Annual Race series which take place in Limassol, Cyprus. It was first run in 2006 and this years is closing 10 years. It started just ten years ago with the participation of just 70 athletes and, this year, it will surpass 10,000 entries, as the last six years have been a very successful collaboration between city authorities like the Municipality, the Chamber of Commerce, the Limassol Tourist Development Company, the GSO (town’s sports association) and the private sector.

The International OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO, is the official Marathon of Cyprus, and the island’s largest sports event! This year, it turns 10 Years Old and thus proceeds with a series of changes which will result to an upgrade of services provided to runners with a high standard and unforgettable Marathon experience.

More than 10.000 runners participating being held throughout the world every year, this weekend’s Limassol will try to stand out from the rest. The race will be held along the coastline on a route almost entirely straight with four main races to choose from: a full Marathon Race, a half Marathon Race, a 10 km Petrolina Health Race, 5 km City Race, 5 km Primetel Corporate Race and McDonald’s 1 km Kids Race.

The International OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO 2016 will be as follows:

the Marathon Race at 07:30 hrs
the Half-Marathon, the 10 km Petrolina Health Race, the 5km City Race and the 5 km PrimeTel Corporate Race at 09:00 hrs
the McDonald’s 1 km Kids Race at 12:00 hrs

The flat nature of the route is optimal for newly introduced members of the Marathon community, as well as for professionals who want to improve their personal times. The route follows Limassol’s Mediterranean coastline, offering a challenging but beautiful course for runners to reach and exceed their personal record.

The seaside road along the race course from the Le Meridien Hotel up to the New Port Traffic Lights will be closed to vehicular traffic from 07:30 hrs to 14:00 hrs.

More information about the 10th International OPAP Limassol Marathon GSO, can be found at the website:

See you in few hours!

Let’s all Run with a Smile!

KANIKA Group of Companies celebrates its 40th Anniversary

Human Capital is the cornerstone of Kanika’s ongoing success

Kanika Group of Companies celebrated its 40th anniversary during an evening which was organized in Limassol and was dedicated to the entire staff of the Kanika Group of Companies, to acknowledge their valuable contribution to the Group’s achievements.

In his welcome address, the Group Hotel General Manager, Mr Christos Pericou, said: «In our eyes, success is synonymous with the welfare and development of our people. We firmly believe that our people are our greatest asset, and they certainly have the highest value.»

The company’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr Alexis Chrysostomou, noted in turn that all of Kanika Hotels had once again proudly received a total of 18 quality awards from the Group’s associates, thanks to the staff’s hard work, performance and dedication. Two particular awards stood out: The Olympic Lagoon Resort Paphos was recognized among the Top 10 ‘Best New Hotels’ worldwide, while the Olympic Lagoon Resort Agia Napa ranked among the Top 25 ‘Best Hotels for Families’ in Europe.

Kanika’s Group Executive Chairman, Mr Spyros Karaolis, pointed out that 2015 was a successful year and once again, as every year, the Group will invest not only in measures to expand and improve its infrastructure and services, but above all to develop its human resources, the backbone of the Group. In his address, Mr Karaolis presented an ambitious action plan for the benefit of the Group’s staff, which includes among other things:

A new staff restaurant based on an innovative concept which will set new standards in the local hotel industry;
A pioneering «Recognition and Rewards» programme based on the company’s core values;
The full implementation of the new health care scheme for all staff members, the first of its kind in the local hotel and construction industry, the cost of which is fully covered by the company;
Notable salary increases and in some cases broader staff benefits.

The Group’s Hotel Division comprises four resort hotels across Cyprus, which were upgraded with new and innovative services and structural facilities to match their pioneering concepts. In 2011, the Olympic Lagoon Resort Agia Napa, a member of Kanika Hotels, was launched as the first luxury theme resort of its kind on the island, thereby adding a new dimension to the Cyprus tourism industry. In 2015, and in cooperation with Claridge Public Ltd, the Group redesigned the former Paphos Amathus Hotel and relaunched it successfully as the new Olympic Lagoon Resort in Paphos. The Group is currently planning the development of a new luxury hotel, with construction expected to begin soon on one of the most exclusive seafront sites in Cyprus, adjacent to the fully renovated Alexander the Great Beach Hotel in Paphos.

Alongside its role in the hotel industry, Kanika Developments & Construction Ltd, continues its activities in the land development sector with high standard projects such as the development of hotels, luxury villas, apartments, offices and shops. Recent examples include the luxurious Kanika International Business Center, the Agios Athanasios Hills and Kanika Moni Sunrise.

Within the framkework of its Corporate Social Responsibility programme, the Kanika Group of Companies supported the establishment of the non-profit Ithaki Charity Organisation which was founded in 2011. Ithaki provides palliative care for patients who have been diagnosed with any form of dementia, while offering their families psycho-social support. In 2013, Ithaki launched a day care centre in Limassol, which operates as a half-day unit that offers patients accommodation and activity, medical care, as well as patient support.

The Kanika Group of Companies was founded in 1975 by Mr Theodosis Karaolis and two other friends. Initially it focused on construction and landdevelopment, and later expanded to include hotels. Over the years the Group went from strength to strength in this sector and earned its rank among the most dynamic and leading companies in Cyprus. One of the Group’s landmark projects is the well-known Kanika Enaerios Complex, which comprises 750 apartments, 250 shops, offices, and the former Kanika Pantheon hotel. The Kanika Enaerios Complex is still regarded as one of the biggest construction projects in Cyprus.
