‘Short Escapes… Great Discoveries!’ – CTO initiative “embraced” by Cypriots and expats


The Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO) has announced the latest phase of its successful ‘Short Escapes… Great Discoveries!’ initiative, resuming from October 7, 2017 to June 2018.


According to the CTO, the initiative has been “embraced by Cypriots and foreign expats.”


This year’s programme has been enriched with new excursions, with participating hotels and restaurants all confirmed. Prices have remained unchanged, according to the CTO.


Packages include two-, three-, four- and five-star hotels, traditional hospitality buildings as well as CTO-approved holiday apartments.


In addition to the hotel accommodation, where breakfast and dinner can be included depending on the package selected, participating restaurants and taverns can provide lunch, while thematic tours offer the chance to discover the island further.


Wellness breaks are also available to tourists to choose from, such as a package which includes accommodation, breakfast, two meals and a spa treatment.


‘Short Escapes… Great Discoveries!’ was introduced to strengthen domestic weekend tourism, while also promoting Cypriot hospitality, local products and touristic services.


During the 2016-17 period, approximately 4,500 participants enjoyed the programme’s offerings.
