The five-star resort and hotel on the Greek side of the island has outfitted most of its 290 rooms, and all four of its restaurants to meet the needs of allergy sufferers. On the basis of these adjustments, it has been certified with the ECARF Seal of Quality for allergy-friendly products and services.
“Our guests expect the highest standards in comfort and service”, says Spyros Michaelides, Executive Assistant Manager and Director of Sales & Marketing at the InterContinental Aphrodite Hills Resort Hotel. “International travellers in particular expect us to respond to their individual needs. With our orientation toward the specific requirements of allergic guests, we improve the experience not only for visitors with allergies but also for their accompanying family members.”
“Every third European is affected by one or more allergies, and these numbers are on the rise. Allergies can be a heavy burden, particularly when travelling, as hotels and restaurants are often not adequately informed about the needs of allergic travellers. With relatively simple and smart adjustments, quality of life for a hotel guest with allergies can be improved to a significant degree,” says Prof. Dr. med. Torsten Zuberbier, head of the ECARF Foundation.
The InterContinental Aphrodite Hills Resort Hotel has adjusted its services according to the scientifically determined criteria of the European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF) and now meets the needs of allergic persons who are sensitive to dust mites, animal hair, certain plants or particular food products. The allergy-friendly rooms have smooth flooring or short-pile carpeting as well as mite-proof encasings for mattresses, pillows and blankets. Floors are cleaned with vacuum cleaners fitted with special HEPA filters for more thorough removal of allergens. In addition, the hotel’s restaurants offer allergy-friendly meals and breakfast buffet options. Food products and ingredients that can trigger allergies, such as nuts, almonds, celery or cow’s milk, are clearly marked. The hotel staff, specially trained by allergy experts from the ECARF foundation, is capable of answering all questions regarding allergies.

The ‘Charis Ioannou Quartet’ includes Pianist Marios Toumbas, Bassist Michael Messios, Drummer Ioannis Vafeas and Charis on Alto Sax. Charis and his colleagues have appeared in concerts in Poland, Greece, Kuwait, Serbia, Holland, England, Luxembourg, Belgium, U.S.A, Spain and Italy.
The ‘Irenaeos Koullouras Trio’, formed in early 2002 and immediately made a strong impact on the music scene not only in Cyprus, but also in Athens, Israel and Serbia.
The members of the band include George Krasides on Tenor Sax, Soprano & Clarinet, George Koulas on Drums and Irenaeos Koullouras on Contrabass.
The band ‘Uptown Beat’ formed in 2006 and features Charis Ioannou on Saxophone, Savvas Houvartas on Guitar, Gabriel Karapatakis on Bass and Rodos Panayiotou on Drums. The band’s repertoire is a fusion of various types of music including straight funk rhythms from the seventies, classic rock sounds, swinging rhythms from North America and Latin rhythms from Central and South America.
Last but not least, the singer Ioanna treated us to the velvet tones of her ‘alto’ voice, with her presence captivating the audience, by simply telling a story in song - in her own unique way - sometimes sweet and melodic and sometimes strong and direct.
This was a unique festival hosted by Aphrodite Hills. The evening was a complete success, with a huge attendance of people and an audience who were totally captivated by the performances of the talented musicians. The amazing light system, including a giant sky beam light added to the ambiance of the evening. A delectable menu offering a variety of foods, including pizzas, tapas, soup and Greek doughnuts, combined with wines and beer on sale at low prices, only added to the enjoyment of a perfect night out.
For next year, one has to wonder what could possibly improve the excellent standard and atmosphere of this year's Jazz Festival. With bated breath, we definitely look forward to finding out.

This is a great achievement for two main reasons. Firstly, there are 6,794 golf courses in Europe which were all included in the survey and secondly because this award is the only one in the golf industry that is not a jury driven award. The voting here was done by actual golf players; therefore, appearing in the Top 20 Most Popular Golf Courses in Europe it is a great deal for Aphrodite Hills and Cyprus.
Aphrodite Hills Golf course, opened in November 2002, is an 18-hole championship course designed by Cabell Robinson. From the back Tees it measures 6,299 meters and spreads undulating fairways dotted with carob and olive trees.

With this philosophy in mind we have created some truly refreshing juices and smoothies for our guests to enjoy poolside or in the shaded relaxation gardens of the spa. These compliment our new healthy menu that has been created with an expert nutritionist to ensure that guests don’t only get a meal that tastes great, but something that is really good for you too.
The menu includes a range of appetisers, salads, wraps and lunches that can be followed by something delicious to satisfy your sweet tooth without denting your diet.
Also this month, we’re pleased to have had some great interest in our bi-weekly skin consultations. Every Wednesday and Friday at midday in the Intercontinental Hotel lobby, our expert beauty therapists armed with the Pevonia skin scanner have been giving out free advice to hotel guests and visitors. Whether you’re concerned about sensitivity, sun damage, aging or you just would like to know more about your skin type then our consultations will give you an in-depth understanding that will satisfy even the most beauty conscious.
Keep your eyes open this month whilst you relax by the hotel pool as our Spa Representative may be testing your spa knowledge with our fun quiz... you never know, you could be a prize winner.
Whilst some of us may be finding it difficult to be motivated in the heat, others are fighting fit and our classes are increasing with popularity. After all, the fitness centre air conditioning is working hard! Saturday’s Zumba is keeping our hips swinging, whilst Fridays yoga is calming our souls so whichever is right for you, be sure to reserve your place.

Traditionally, September is the time when the Summer comes to an end......Not here in Cyprus! Summer is extended through to the end of October and this is what make playing Tennis in Cyprus so special.
This month all the children will be returning to school, starting new classes and enjoying new beginnings while all the adults go back to work after their long deserved Holidays and back to the daily grind at work can seem daunting but never fear the Tennis Academy is here to help.
This month we focus on the Health Benefits that can be gained from playing Tennis. Going to the Gym is not the only way to get into shape...
Bjorn Borg, the stoic tennis-playing Swede who won five straight Wimbledon and six French Open singles titles, was famous for his calm, cool demeanor on the court. For a time, he was dubbed "Ice Borg." His conditioning was legendary, and so was his resting heart rate, a reported 45 beats per minute.
Whether true or not, the story about Borg's tranquil cardiac tissue underscores an important point about tennis: playing it on a regular basis is good for your heart. It's also good for the body and mind. In fact, playing tennis on a regular basis produces physical, physiologic and psychologic benefits.
These benefits include increased burning of calories, reduction in blood pressure and reduced stress. All of these benefits play a role in reducing a person’s risk of developing heart disease, the number-one killing disease among men and women.
To help you appreciate the health and heart benefits of tennis, to encourage you to get out there and play and to help you play the sport safely, Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute at Cleveland Clinic and the United States Tennis Association have collaborated to bring you this “Get your game on” guide.
Cut Calories, Lower Blood Pressure
Playing tennis on a regular basis can help maintain or improve balance, mobility, agility, strength and fitness. It also helps burn calories. According to the Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute exercise physiologist and avid tennis player Gordon Blackburn, Ph.D., research shows that three hours of moderate aerobic exercise every week can cut the risk of developing heart disease by 50 percent. "Playing tennis at a moderate to vigorous intensity on a regular basis," says Dr. Blackburn, "is a good way to get your aerobic exercise. You'll exercise your muscles and burn calories. Tennis can even help lower your blood pressure. All of that helps reduce your risk of developing heart disease or of having a cardiovascular event, such as a heart attack or stroke."
A 135-pound woman playing an hour of tennis can burn 330 calories during doubles and 420 calories during singles, says Dr. Blackburn. An average-sized man playing an hour of tennis can burn about 425 calories during doubles and 600 calories during singles. In fact, says Dr. Blackburn, you’ll burn more calories playing three hours of tennis per week than you will doing three hours of light weightlifting, bowling or golfing.
“If you complement the tennis with other aerobic activities such as brisk walking or cycling, so that you are getting some sort of aerobic exercise most days of the week,” says Dr. Blackburn, “you can make an even bigger impact on improving heart health.” For instance, numerous recent studies, says Dr. Blackburn, have documented the physiologic benefits of walking on a regular basis and at a moderate intensity.
Whether you’re a former tennis player ready to take up the sport again, or you’re taking it up for the first time, pre-play stretching is one of the most important precautions you can take to minimize the risk of muscle or limb injury. Stretching prepares the body for physical activity by warming the muscles and joints. The process takes only a few minutes. Stretching does not guarantee that you won’t be injured during play, but the evidence shows that it can help significantly reduce the risk.
For those of you thinking, “Dude, this body don’t bend,” stretching exercises are not designed to contort the limbs, inflict pain or serve as a tryout for Cirque de Soleil. The objective is to ready the muscles and joints for the stretching and extending you’ll do as play begins and progresses.
To keep tennis safe and healthy, always keep these tips in mind:
- Get the body’s muscles and joints properly warmed up by stretching
- Use water or healthy sports drinks to keep the body properly hydrated before, during and after play. This is particularly important when playing in hot, humid weather, or for longer than an hour per session.
- If you injure yourself or experience chest pain, stop playing immediately and contact your physician.
- Play within your means. (In other words, leave the acrobatics to Roddick and Venus Williams)
- Get Your Game On…Safely
Dr. Blackburn encourages anyone who can to take up tennis, but certain individuals, he says, need to check with a physician before doing so. If you are interested in playing tennis, check the list below to see if any of the criteria describe or relate to your health status. If so, you’ll want to discuss your intentions with your doctor.
- Chest discomfort or pain during physical activity
- Current inactive lifestyle, by choice or because of a medical condition
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Heart disease
- Recent surgery (within past year)
- High or low blood pressure
- Regular dizziness or loss of consciousness
- Vision problems
- Joint replacement
- History of chronic joint pain or discomfort that worsens during physical activity
Also, if you are under a physician’s care for any reason, or taking medications to help manage a condition, be sure to discuss with your physician your interest in tennis before heading off to the courts.
Fun…and For All
One of the greatest aspects of tennis is that playing it can be fun. True, it can be challenging, especially if you’re just learning, but it also is a sport in which lessons, practice and persistence pay off quickly. Tennis offers a great diversion from life’s stresses as well as a great opportunity to socialize, particularly if you join a local tennis league or club or frequent public courts. Tennis is invigorating, and, once you get the hang of it, tremendously satisfying. It also makes a great family activity.
Contrary to what you might think, tennis is not a sport played and enjoyed only by the young. In fact, 11.3 million adults aged 25 and up played tennis at least once last year. And as Venus and Serena Williams have so brilliantly reminded everyone, tennis is a sport for women just as much as it is for men.
Some great information there. Now there is absolutely no excuse not to play, especiall if you are looking to get fitter or just looking to improve your game slightly. The tennis Academy is the place to be and we are looking forward to welcoming you very soon.
