A luxury boutique hotel and spa will launch at Cypriot superyacht marina Karpaz Gate Marina in 2020.
Offering high-end facilities on the sea front overlooking the marina, the new Karpaz Gate Marina Hotel will further enhance the Karpaz peninsula development as an outstanding destination for boat owners, crew and tourists.
Construction of the yacht-themed, 52-room hotel is being carried out by Korman Construction Ltd with an anticipated completion date of early 2020.
Representing a unique addition to the Karpaz area and the TRNC (Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus), the two-storey building has been meticulously designed to blend in with the surrounding natural environment and will feature replica teak-deck flooring and a light blue and grey colour scheme.
The facility will provide marina clients, local residents and international visitors with spa amenities, including a Turkish Hammam, treatment rooms and saunas, and a variety of accommodation options such as suites and family rooms, all featuring balconies with a view of the picturesque surroundings.
Liza Singer, Karpaz Gate Marina managing director, noted, “The ground-breaking project to develop Karpaz Gate Marina, the first modern yacht marina in North Cyprus, has been an incredibly rewarding challenge which first began in 2005. Since the opening in 2011, our priority has been to offer premium berthing, leisure and technical facilities, maintaining the highest standards to ensure we exceed the expectations of all our clients and guests.
“In seven years, we have succeeded in attracting yachts to an unknown, unrecognised, internationally embargoed country, and to a remote area like Karpaz. Now the time is right for us to take the next step, enhancing the marina and technical centre, Beach Club and leisure facilities with the addition of high-end luxury hotel accommodation and spa facilities for our clients and guests.
“The opening of the Karpaz Gate Marina Hotel in 2020 is a significant landmark moment in the realisation of the huge potential of the Karpaz region as a destination for yachts and other tourists. By partnering with the same contractors who worked with us on the original marina development, Korman Construction, and paying the utmost attention to the building’s exterior and interior design, we are confident we can respect the natural beauty of the area with the same eco-friendly, sensitive approach.”
