True Taverna Tradition

afeliaDespite being a small island, Cyprus is a crossroads of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern gastronomy and therefore boasts a vast cuisine rich in different ingredients. There are countless traditional dishes worth sampling, and at Kanika hotels, each taverna is a culinary journey to true Cypriot cooking. Their carefully crafted ‘meze’, a collection of twenty ‘small plates’, is deliberately generous to introduce you to many dishes within one sitting amongst beautiful surroundings.

At Olympic Lagoon Resort, the Captain’s Deck is a cosy outdoor terrace restaurant flaunting panoramic views of the lake and lush tropical gardens of Fisherman’s Village. Blue Paradise with its all-white décor adds a Grecian feel to Elias Beach as you dine al fresco beside crystal Mediterranean waters and at Alexander the Great’s Limanaki Tavern, the spacious, open setting means every table has a sea view, and is embellished with beautiful stone columns and towering palm trees. ‘When visiting a country, it’s natural to want to explore the cuisine; and given our passion for Cypriot food, we felt it a responsibility to display our own take on meze within our resorts’, explains Antonis Nicolaou, Executive Chef at Olympic Lagoon Resort.

The Kanika All Stars Animation Team

Alexander Animation TeamKanika places a great deal of importance on the contribution their animators make towards each guest’s holiday experience. The entertainment team are encouraged by Kanika to put forward new ideas and concepts based on guest feedback in order to keep the programme – which changes every half hour and is tailored to each property individually – fresh and updated. Not an easy task, considering the staggering mix of indoor and outdoor activities including sports (darts, table tennis, zumba, beach volleyball, shuffleboard, football, archery), water activities (aqua aerobics, pool mini disco, water polo), demonstrations (cocktails, cookery, scuba diving), games and quizzes, live shows and dancing, movie nights and competitions. Although the adult and children’s entertainment programmes differ, the emphasis is on families, so many of the activities actually cater to all members of the family.

At the end of September each year, the team gets together to brainstorm ideas for the following year. It is a system that works, evident in the genuine smiles of a team who, due to the extensive animation programme set up, work long hours as a rule.
