Odessa Hotel

The Odessa Hotel is a sleek, welcoming property in a quiet part of Protaras. Its focal point is the swimming pool on the ample terrace, which is lined with loungers, sun umbrellas and a bar. The two buffet restaurants serve up a selection of treats, but you can also try something a bit different by taking a table at a la carte Mediterranean. Family friendly Odessa Hotel has a children’s paddling pool, and for the tweens and teens, a video-games area. There’s a baby-sitting service available upon request. Add to all this a programme of daytime and evening entertainment, and there’s plenty to keep the whole family happy.

Overview of Cyprus, Larnaca region

Steeped in history, myth and legend, Cyprus offers so much more than just world-class beaches. The island is filled with goodies, and the Larnaca region is a kaleidoscope of colour with caramel sands, the bluest of seas and emerald scenery welcoming you to your holidays in Cyprus with plenty of relaxation, snorkelling and hiking. There are resorts dotted along Larnaca’s coastline with lively Ayia Napa and neighbouring Protaras, home to the Odessa Hotel, serving up bustling beach life, up-tempo bars and restaurants galore. The star of the show here is Fig Tree Bay with its cafes and watersports.

Things to do in Protaras

Stay at the Odessa Hotel and you’re just a short walk from the resort centre, with the nearest beach 140 meters away. There are six beaches to choose from, including Blue Flag Green Bay, just 10-minutes away. The resort is packed with restaurants and bars, but if you’re looking to ramp things up in the nightlife department, Ayia Napa with its club-packed streets is just a 10-minute taxi ride away. If you’re up for a bit of nature, take a boat trip to Cape Greco, which is perfect for snorkelling. This nature park, with its crystalline waters and hiking trails, promises an uplifting day out. Head to Protaras for a lively Cypriot break offering lazy beach days, natural adventure and nights out on the town.

Resort Summary

Nostalgia and history are deeply woven into the fabric of Protaras, the Cypriot town said to be built on the site of an ancient battle with a descendant of Alexander the Great. Nowadays, it’s a sunny town of fun and relaxation, although close enough to areas like Larnaca and Ayia Napa that you’ll never be at a loss for something to do during your Cyprus holidays. The beaches are golden and the town is full of character.
