The Malpas 5 star hotel has been a wonderful addition to the recent surge of top class luxury hotel opening in North Cyprus, and after a few years in the making it opened its doors to guests in 2007.
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.
The position of the hotel is elevated as it is sited on the low slopes of the Five Finger mountain range, the position makes it even more appealing as it overlooks the traditional Cypriot village of Çatalköy as well as offering sweeping views of the Mediterranean Sea. It also takes in views of the Kyrenia mountain range. The design and architecture of the hotel are contemporary with curving facades with tasteful and understated interiors.
The hotel also has quite a modest bed capacity compared to some with a range of 177 superior rooms which feature modern chic furniture and finishings, rounded off with luxurious Turkish linens in all rooms. For those who want the ultimate holiday accommodation there are also 6 well-appointed suites and one presidential suite which would definitely suit those looking for the perfect honeymoon break.
If you are looking for some additional privacy the Malpas can also accommodate families and parties with several mini villas and bungalows a short distance from the main hotel, allowing you the freedom to feel as if you are in your own holiday villa whilst still benefitting from the same 5 star hotel service.
All accommodation is of superior quality with private balconies and terraces, each room, suite or villa has its own flat screen LCD TV with satellite channels, and the whole complex is served with wi-fi high speed internet access should you wish to stay in touch with the world. There are also phone lines with voice mail and data ports for the workaholics amongst us. In addition there are hi-tech climate control panels in all accommodation options. It probably goes without saying that the bathrooms are pretty luxurious too, with nice finishing touches and yummy toiletries!
You can spend your holiday lounging by the impressive outdoor pool or maybe even perhaps you may fancy trying the spa and wellness centre which offers a range of quality treatments from around the world, as well as traditional pampering and beauty treats. See our article on spas in North Cyprus. There is also an indoor pool and Jacuzzi if you fancy keeping out of the sun for a while.
The hotel hosts some quality music every week during the year, which both guests and visitors can enjoy at the hotel’s in-house Cotton Jazz Bar. You could also spend a great evening on the hotel’s terrace listening to live music and dancing whilst dining from the a la carte menu. The bar also does a great range of cocktails too, so you may choose to partake of some cocktails whilst playing a little at the hotel’s hi-tech casino.
The choice of dining options is varied at the Malpas, so you can choose from a buffet style dinner or dine at the exclusive Fontana and a la carte La Broche restaurants, or indeed maybe even have a meal on the rooftop restaurant during the summer months. Even if you just fancy a light snack then there is a patisserie as well as a café and vitamin juice bar within the hotel, or you could even try the Curion pool-side bar and restaurant.
In 2008 the hotel added to its portfolio of amenities with the Corano Beach Club, so now guests are offered free transport to be able to spend time enjoying these additional facilities which include a true beach club with plenty of loungers, decked areas, shades and private sandy beach. You can dine here too at the Corano Fish Restaurant, and at night you can really let your hair down at the beachside Mansion Club.
So, if you’re looking for a luxury hotel with plenty of additional facilities to keep you relaxed and occupied you may just want to consider the Malpas. To find out more and for contact details visit the Malpas 5 star hotel website.
