Every day in every Kanika Hotel there is the chance to play,to laugh,to sing,to dance,to make new friends. And with an entertainment programme like no other,you can feel the fun from the time you wake up to when yo go to bed with a smile on your face.

Holidays with sun, sea and sand are wonderful, but today’s modern traveller wants more, and Kanika are here to give it.
Each of the five hotels that encircle the coastline of southern Cyprus is designed to offer the best in leisure, sport and
entertainment. And with the family in mind, Kanika have compiled a printed programme of weekly activities for both adults and children to be used as a‘pick and mix’ of holiday fun.

Kids unite
This wow factor continues when kids get their first taste of the extensive kids clubs – The Crèche for 6
months to 3 years, ‘Little Monsters’ for 3 to 8-year-olds and ‘Teenz’ for youngsters up to 17. Each day is a new day to explore activities and games with programmes full of creativity, all supervised by qualified staff. 
Children adore the cartoon characters that greet them when they arrive, but which will they love the most? Will it be Gigi the giraffe, Lucas the lion, Zorba the zebra or Bella the elephant? And which themed day will they enjoy?

Star attractions
With the day of activities over, it is evenings that so many guests look forward to, for this is when the ‘stars’
come out and in every Kanika hotel there is dancing and laughing. Families can watch their children perform, or there is the ever popular karaoke and quizzes, and of course, the excellent Kanika entertainers. Vocalists, tribute bands, magicians, hypnotists and the famous dance troupes are all hand-picked to suit each hotel. The dancers and singers rehearse their lines and steps for months and then they are ready to give their all, be it ‘Chicago Rouge’ at Elias Beach or ‘Talk of the Town’ at
Alexander the Great or ‘Pop Idolz’ at Olympic Lagoon – this is Showtime!

Games, sports, films, parties, discos, arts and crafts are for the little ones at every Kanika hotel, while ‘Teenz’ at the Olympic Lagoon Resort has Kinect, gaming booths,an internet room and even their own teenage club and bar. There is something for everyone and as one guest remarked

After all, whatever your age, everyone knows that fun makes you feel young!”

Enjoy the Kanika All Stars entertainment and see what awaits you at the New Olympic Lagoon Resort Paphos.

Wedding couples flirt with Olympic Lagoon Resort Paphos, Cyprus

Olympic Lagoon Paphos Wedding Venue

The first Premium All-Inclusive hotel in Paphos opens in June 2015

At this year’s National Wedding Show in London, Birmingham and Manchester, Kanika Hotels introduced the romantic magic of its most recent member of the family – the Olympic Lagoon Resort Paphos in Cyprus.

Opening in June 2015, the new hotel is a stunning follow-up to the Premium All-Inclusive concept that Kanika Hotels pioneered at the Olympic Lagoon Resort in Agia Napa.

Olympic Lagoon Resort in Paphos is a destination that is ideal for both the wedding couple and their guests. For a seafront wedding in the sun, the ceremony itself is celebrated in an enchanting custom-built venue directly on the water.

After the big day, the so-called ‘resort-within-a-hotel’ concept proves its worth. The newlyweds can enjoy their honeymoon in the adults-only accommodation and pools, while guests discover the family holiday paradise with themed pools, leisure facilities and wellness spa. The professional entertainment and activity programmes rank as the best in Cyprus, with separate crèche, kids club, teens club, and a nightclub for adults.

The Premium All-Inclusive package includes an unprecedented variety of gastronomic options in 5 different restaurants serving international, local, all-American and Japanese cuisine, as well as snacks with an Italian twist. Five indoor and outdoor bars offer liquid all-inclusive refreshment.

Alongside the tempting wedding package and group accommodation rates, couples can take advantage of a special introductory offer: no venue fees for weddings celebrated anytime in 2015 and 2016, provided the booking is confirmed by the end of December 2014.

Although Olympic Lagoon Resort is in the limelight at the moment, the other members of Kanika Hotels & Resorts are not neglected. Olympic Lagoon Resort in Agia Napa, Elias Beach Hotel in Limassol, and Alexander the Great Beach Hotel in Paphos are all veterans of the National Wedding Show. The firmly established Kanika Weddings packages are available at them all and can be booked through the website, directly with the individual hotel, or through any local tour operator.

Celebrities such as Peter Andre’s brother Chris sing at all the hotels; they encompass the quality that Kanika aims to provide.

On other evenings, the audience are treated to an extravaganza of song and dance courtesy of Chicago Rouge, The Jersey Boys, Michael Bublé tribute, Rock around the Clock show, Flashback through the Decades and the All Star Movie and Theatre awards, with musicals spanning Lion King, Joseph and Grease. The artists themselves are hand-picked from UK-wide auditions by Claire, and though the selection process is strenuous and the rehearsals gruelling, the final quality makes it all worthwhile.
