Some of our readers sometimes like to have some inside juice on great places to stay in North Cyprus, and whilst we are in the business of informing, it’s just that from time to time its hard to let go of those things which we wish to keep to ourselves! Balcı Plaza in Yenierenköy is one of those places, but it would be unfair not to tell everyone wouldn’t it! Also Hassan, the proud owner would be upset with us too! Whilst thinking of what to write, thoughts initially came up with great beach, fantastic food and sleeping under a sunshade all day, but we have dug deep to pad it all out for you!
The Malpas is finished to the highest standards and it has utilised modern technology in an effort to create an eco-friendly facility particularly with regards to its plumbing and re-use of water, (a small but significant step in the right direction). The hotel can offer both residents and non-residents a wealth of amenities and attractions too, and it has proved a welcome compliment to the range and location of hotels across the northern third of the island.

When it comes to choosing the best accommodation in North Cyprus suited to your own requirements and tastes, take a look at this article which gives food for thought on the individual suitability of available accommodation. There are so many different types of accommodation from 5 star to 1 star, holiday villages, budget accommodation and guesthouses, that you should have no trouble in finding what you need.
Starting with luxury hotels, you may have a problem in deciding which one to choose! Classic, modern, themed, opulent are just a few of the words we can use to describe some of them, and you will not be disappointed as we can safely say that they are first class. With new players coming into the game on a regular basis, you are spoilt for choice. See our selection of luxury hotels for some ideas.
During the holiday season hotels and holiday villages will lay on activities and fun days for children, and many have designated pools and facilities for them to spend hours being entertained in. You can also feel completely at ease with leaving your little devils to make new friends and in the hands of the hotel staff who will make sure that your children are always safe and well looked after.
We can safely say that you are spoilt for choice when it comes to the luxury hotel market here in North Cyprus. There are many beautiful, independent and unique hotels to choose from because the big chain hotels like Marriot, Sheraton, Holiday Inn and Hilton have not established themselves here. Independent minded hoteliers have therefore been left to create luxurious and totally individual resorts.
Having said that, there are some hotel chain groups which are involved in North Cyprus such as the Merit group, as well as Accor which is a huge hotel group that owns the Mercure Hotel for example. However, each of the major luxury hotels is still individual in design, character and décor, so it doesn’t feel as though you could be in any city in any part of the world when you visit one!
If you’re looking for a holiday on a budget then there is plenty of choice for you and your family. You can take your pick from self catering to half board, as well as a choice of bed and breakfast accommodation and guesthouses. Unfortunately there is no such thing as the Youth Hostel Association here just yet, but there is plenty on offer for those watching their pennies.
There are a number of bonuses to choosing this type of accommodation, as most budget hotels are small family run establishments – perfect if you prefer peace and quiet. Some suit the more backpacker type of person with plenty of beach hut hostelries dotted around the Karpaz area for example, although there is plenty of slightly higher quality accommodation in this area which suits a smaller budget too.
If you are a couple in search of a romantic destination hotel or perhaps you’re retirees seeking some well deserved relaxation and peace, then there are some wonderful boutique hotels to try here in North Cyprus.
Often smaller and family run, they are more than likely to be very individual in style and therefore more likely to appeal to those who seek accommodation that feels more personal and sophisticated.
If total relaxation of mind, body and spirit is what you are looking for when booking a hotel for your holiday, then North Cyprus has a lot to offer for the earnest spa lover. You can choose a complete spa getaway or a weekend full of the best treatments that the world has to offer, at one of the many 5 star hotel resorts.
Facilities are of the best quality, packed full of tasteful furnishings and mood calming music and lighting, so that you really do feel as if you are in a secluded and private retreat. On researching this article, we were pleasantly surprised at how seriously the spa world takes itself here, with a wide range of treatments and pampering options to really go to town on!
Many people travel to North Cyprus for business purposes, and there are obviously some firm favourites in terms of preferred hotels with business travellers. However, if you venture off the beaten track and away from the main population centres of Lefkoşa, Kyrenia or Famagusta, facilities for business travellers are sometimes limited. What is offered at the main business friendly hotels is however at least adequate, and indeed at times impressive too.
Most of the main hotels now offer wi-fi internet access in either their foyers or guest rooms, so if you do still need to work after an onsite meeting perhaps, you can send that all important email or document to your office.
