Quality Sleep at a Boutique Luxury Hotel for Better Health and Productivity!

Quality sleep could save your life! Latest research links the power of sleep to protecting ‘metabolic’ health and the reduced risk of high blood pressure, obesity, and high cholesterol.

It’s absolutely good news then for business folk arriving in the Cyprus capital that the best boutique luxury hotel in Nicosia are geared up for totally blissed out forty winks, no matter how short the shut-eye may be!

It’s no accident that the Greek God, Hypnos is the enigmatic symbol for the bed N’mix concept hotel where every room is installed with a state of the art Coco-Mat “sleep system”. CLICK HERE to find out more about Coco-Mat and Hypnos

Every sleep-filled second counts

Late night networking and early morning wake-up calls are all par for the course on most business trips. Keeping fighting fit for the next round of power breakfasts, client meetings, all day conferences and travel schedules means maintaining optimal health and wellbeing. Every sleep-filled second counts when executive heads finally hit the pillow!

The well-known benefits of a good night’s sleep, especially for full-on business men and women include, better productivity and concentration. Less well-known benefits are helping to consume lower daily calories and reducing inflammation. However, a lack of proper sleep also has links to emotional and social intelligence, leading to issues such as failing to recognise other people’s emotions, a reduced tendency to think positively or willingness to solve problems, poor impulse control and inability to delay gratification.

Tended to dismiss sleep deprivation as no more than a minor detail

Now, a new US study of 2,000 people aged 45 – 84 looked at metabolic risk factors, such as type 2 diabetes, stroke and heart disease. Researchers at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), part of the National Institute of Health, found that “for every 1 hour of day-to-day variation in bedtime or length of sleep, there was a 27 per cent raised risk of developing metabolic risk factors”.

The results may be viewed as a “wake up” call to those who tend to opt for hunkering down on any thin-walled, lumpy hotel mattress because it’s just for a “couple of nights”, and they “are out all night” anyway!

Most people, not least the busy executive, have tended to dismiss the occasional or even ongoing sleep deprivation as no more than a minor detail (“for wimps”), and relatively unimportant when there’s important schedules to be kept. However, in more recent times, it’s increasingly recognised just how important quality sleep is to both the actual quality and perception of daily life.

Free Cultural Moments Are Never Too Far From Nicosia Accommodation!

Stepping out of your Nicosia accommodation, a cultural moment may often be encountered as you turn the very next corner. Absolutely not unusual in Cyprus, of course. After all, this is the actual location of Mount Olympus, rising up some 1,952 metres (6,404 ft) in the Troodos Mountains – the mythic home of Zeus, King of the Gods who created the nine Greek muses of creativity.

Many Nicosia hotels are only a few moments walk from engaging with the spirit of the muses plying their craft on a non-stop calendar of music, theatre, dance, art and film. Whether you are in Nicosia for a minibreak, on a business trip or visiting friends, there’s always likely to be an impromptu event happening on one of the many public squares to be found around the island capital. Many can be enjoyed throughout the year, and often with free entrance too.

Perfect open air spot for a live concert

One such free entrance was held on Wednesday 11th September in Old Nicosia’s Faneromeni Square. Built within the city walls during Venetian rule (1489-1571), it was the perfect open air spot for a live concert – aptly entitled “Spellbound and Magic” – to hear the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra play Beethoven’s rousing “Ode To Joy” and Mendelssohn’s scintillating overture of Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream”. Also featured during the 90 minutes was Dvořák’s Czech Suite including lively stylised, national ‘polka’ dances.

National dance closer to home is the theme of the 14th Mediterranean Folklore Dance Festival, another free open air event, staged at the Nicosia Municipal Park on Friday 13th (18:30 – 20:30). For one day only, before the festival heads off to Larnaca, the Heritage Association of Nicosia presents 29 dance groups originating from Cyprus, Greece and around the Mediterranean.

Dazzling displays of movement and colourful costumes

Musicians, dancers and performers are brought together by a universal love of traditional dance in dazzling displays of dexterity, movement and colourful costumes. The aim is to raise awareness, provide insight and create a dialogue between a diverse range of national and cultural backgrounds as expressed through the tradition of dance.

A cultural moment for food lovers also takes place in Nicosia Municipal Gardens a week later on Sunday 22nd September (11:00 – 18:00). The Indian Vegetarian Food Festival is part of a series of events organised by the High Commission of India in association with the Nicosia municipal authority to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the birth of Mahatma Gandhi (1869- 1948) who pioneered India’s independence from British rule.

Cyprus September – Kypria International Festival Brings Cultural Explorers To Nicosia Hotels

It may be the first weeks of September and officially the start of autumn but Nicosia hotels are as busy as ever welcoming their guests for late holiday breaks and last minute getaways. That’s no surprise…

In some European countries, there’s still a week or two before schools and colleges return yet a distinct chill in the early morning air. But here in Nicosia, a ferocious Cyprus sun still rides high in a cloudless sky. Average temperatures push up the mercury to between 31-34C every single day. Many of the best hotels in Nicosia will be taking bookings from both dedicated sun worshippers and cultural explorers for a while longer yet.

Rich diversity of performing arts

Boutique lifestyle and authentic experience often go hand in hand. Many island visitors will be drawn to the annual “Kypria” International festival held in September since 1993. This year, between 1st September and 10th October, acclaimed international artists are featured alongside Cypriot and Greek performers, drawn from a rich diversity of dance, theatre, music, the visual arts and cinema.

Live art performance by well-known local talent, Lia Haraki, ushered in the festival with a unique live mix of dance, music, and artworks to be experienced “on the streets of old Nicosia, in old shop windows, in forgotten alleys and squares”.

Festival theatre also started with KA-F-KA, a contemporary dance and multimedia performance of  “a body overwhelmed” by the French Orian Dance Company, presented over two days at the THOC New Stage, Nicosia. Next is a presentation “Broken Glass” (Pattihio Municipal Theatre, Limassol, 9th -12th September) by celebrated American playwright, Henry Miller (1891- 1980).  A couple examine their relationship, past trauma and fear of the unknown, which can all prevent an individual from moving forward in their life.

Drama continues to unfold in Nicosia

Early September also brings world-renowned American jazz performer and nine-times Grammy nominee, Tierney Sutton with her band to the Nicosia Municipal Theatre (6th – 7th) and “Threttanelo” – puppetry set to music by eight Greek / Cypriot musicians and actors (Paphos Gardens – 7th | 8th | 14th | 15th).

More drama continues to unfold in Nicosia at the Dionyssos Theatre (18th | 19th | 22nd) where a production of “Lorenzaccio”, by French playwright Alfred De Musset (1810-1857) is based on historical events in 1537 surrounding Lorenzo de Medici and the restoration of the Republic in Florence.

Seeing out September, includes “The Arrow That Does Not Hurt” a Pocket Theatre production for both adults and children on the theme of togetherness and empathy at THOC Main Stage, Nicosia ( 20th | 21st | 22nd | 27th), and “A Comedy of Errors”, the enduring tale of two sets of identical twins by William Shakespeare (Nicosia Municipal Theatre, 23rd | 24th | 25th).
