Every year, everyone loves the joy and excitement of Christmas time - and this year, the InterContinental Hotel will make you feel more festive than ever before! Their grand Christmas tree will be displayed in the Lobby Area and with an added festive theme, the tree will be decorated with delicious Christmas cookies. You will not want to miss this extravagant display.

But it does not stop there! In the Carob Lounge we will be serving up some tasty Christmas delicacies… with the warm and mouthwatering aroma of these tempting treats, you will simply not be able to resist.

Christmas cookies and gingerbread houses will be on sale, so you can enjoy our delicious delicacies at home, as well as in the comfort of the Carob Lounge.

Introducing new Assistant Pastry Chef - Demetris Sakampetis


Demetris is from Patra in Greece and was originally an electrician. When he joined the army, he took charge of the army canteen. His talent for pastry was soon to be discovered. 11 years ago, he came to Cyprus to study in ‘Gurmant” school and to cultivate his passion for chocolate and Sugar Art design. Demetris joined the Apollonia Hotel and then Le Meridien. Now at Aphrodite Hills InterContinental Hotel, he is working closely with Head Chef, Kyriakos Panayiotou. Demetris started creating the most incredible and unique chocolate designs; the ‘sweet man’ as we now call him, is without a doubt, one of the best Pastry Chefs on the island. Not only does he have a passion for sweets, cakes and pastry, but he loves to spend his spare time with his family and his beautiful little boy, who is only 4 months old. This Christmas, Demetris promises to exceed our expectations with unique sweet creations that will excite both young and old fans alike.

With an exceptionally talented team, Demetris is constantly upgrading the quality and services in the bakery.

There is so much more to come from such extravagant cuisine at Aphrodite Hills Resort!

For 2013-2014, the festive concept for Food and Beverage will be the SMURFS!

This was the 9th year The Retreat Spa has organised this charity event, which has become a meaningful ladies gathering for a good cause.

The event was held from 6.00pm - 9.00pm and the attendance was excellent with local guests, staff and property owners, who all gave us their loyal support for this worthwhile cause.

Along with wine and canapés, a variety of mini Spa treatments such as Thai Massage, Reiki, Head Massage and Nail Painting were amongst some of the offerings.

Reflexology at The Retreat Spa


The ancient art of Reflexology has been around for thousands of years. Its very first pictorial evidence was found in the tomb of Ankhmahor at Saggara in Egypt, dated around 2330 B.C., with evidence also found in China, Russia and Japan.

Reflexology works on the premise that the feet are a mini map of the body and by working on specific points we can give a lasting and beneficial effect to the recipient.
It has a scientific basis, in that during the 20th century, an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist found physical effects in areas such as the body’s digestive, reproductive and urinary systems, by pressing points on the feet.

The practitioner works thoroughly over the feet, finding imbalances, which can sometimes feel like granules or cause minor discomfort. These areas are worked on to bring balance or homeostasis, allowing the body or the system of the recipient to work more efficiently. If there are no specific problems, then this treatment can also work as a preventative measure, stopping potential problems before they arise, restoring the free flow of energy to the entire body.

Whether as a curative or preventative treatment, Reflexology is sure to leave you floating on air!

55 minutes: €105
