With more than 300 days of sunshine per year and many cultural and scenic highlights, Cyprus is an ideal travel destination – not only for beach holidays. The Mediterranean island is well prepared for the 2020 summer holiday. Cyprus is one of the first destinations to welcome back holidaymakers from other European countries. "We are in close contact with all the partners in the country," says Sebastian Ebel, TUI Group Executive Board member responsible for Hotels & Resorts. "TUI is already represented in Cyprus with numerous partner hotels. The holiday destination also offers great potential for our popular hotel brands. For the summer of 2021, our premium club brand ROBINSON will therefore be launched in the country for the first time." The quality and market leader for club holidays will then open its first resort on the sunny island in the eastern Mediterranean, thereby expanding its portfolio to a total of 26 properties worldwide.
The new ROBINSON Club Cyprus will be located on a 78,000 m² site on the south coast of Cyprus, about 30 minutes by car from Larnaca International Airport. The club area fascinates by its direct location on the extensive sandy beach in a large bay with direct sea view. The already existing facility, with a total of 321 rooms and suites, accommodated in two and three-storey terraced bungalows and in the main building, will be extensively renovated and extended until the opening next summer. As a "For All" club, the ROBINSON Club Cyprus is perfectly suited for beach holidays travelling with the entire family. However, active holidaymakers also get their money's worth thanks to a wide range of sports activities and ideal water sports conditions. On excursions, guests can also explore the stunning landscape of the island and its cultural features.
ROBINSON takes over the operation of the property within the context of a management contract. The negotiations with the owner company Muskita Tourist Enterprises Ltd. had already begun before the start of the Corona pandemic and have now been successfully concluded. "We are pleased that we can continue ROBINSON's continuous course of growth even in these extraordinary times. We are clearly looking ahead. We are delighted that we are adding a fascinating destination to our portfolio with Cyprus, which has a lot to offer our guests," says Bernd Mäser, spokesman for the management of Robinson Club GmbH.
Bookings for the new ROBINSON Club Cyprus will be available from 14 July 2020.
