Nicosia Accommodation and Business Travellers in the Age of Lifestyle Experience!

The needs of today’s business traveller have dramatically transformed in recent years. No less for those seeking Nicosia accommodation in the business capital of Cyprus or at other hotels around the world. In one recent business survey, more than half (58 per cent) of respondents said they actively search for boutique hotels.

We live in an age of the “lifestyle experience”. Beyond home, food, clothes, sport, design, culture and leisure, for example, it particularly extends to the annual vacation, a mini holiday or even just a weekend break. Businessmen and women, too, increasingly opt for preferences that tick all the modern lifestyle experience boxes when choosing a hotel.

Nicosia accommodation: staying at “lifestyle” hotels also continued to grow

While Nicosia and Larnaca saw the number of 1-Star and 2-Star hotels increase by almost 90 per cent over the last decade (Cyprus Hospitality Report, 2019), the interest in staying at “lifestyle” hotels also continued to grow and spread. In new research by Global Business Travel Association (GBTA), nearly two thirds (65 per cent) of business travellers sought out “lifestyle” hotels, and 50 per cent first checked consumer review websites and other sources for previous guests’ experiences.

The survey also reveals key items which addresses business traveller preferences, such as a hotel’s proximity, personalised experience, free and fast Wi-Fi, healthy-eating options, and a setting that both helps to boost productivity as well as to relax and unwind.

Select number of Nicosia hotels ideal for reduced travel time

It’s no surprise that convenience provided by a hotel’s location and proximity is always a high priority. A select number of Nicosia hotels, for example, are found nearby to key business, government, academic and cultural institutions at the centre of the capital. Ideal for reduced travel time and increased productivity.

One important aspect of a business person’s personalised experience, absolutely now expected, is a hotel’s technology that will streamline from start to finish. Not only at the booking stage! Most business travellers also choose a hotel where they can use an app to check in and check out, offers free and fast Wi-Fi and a room with multiple power sockets for all their devices – and the iron!

Many business travellers want to start their working day with a healthy breakfast

Healthy eating options must definitely be on a hotel’s menu. To keep going through a busy diary of meetings and appointments means many business travellers want to start their working day with a healthy breakfast, at least. Increasingly, the demand is for a variety of vegetarian and vegan options too. Healthy-eating often goes hand in hand with keeping fighting fit.

Committed, exercise-conscious business people seek out a fitness centre, which is easy to find, no waiting to use a particular machine, and exercise stations that are all maintained and working properly.

No.1 desire to have the ultimate “great night’s sleep”

Literally, at the end of the day – a business person’s working day –  their No.1 desire can be simply to relax and unwind in peace and quiet. Most of all, to have the ultimate “great night’s sleep” on a quality king size bed and bedding.

Boutique Nicosia Accommodation Definitely Attractive To Aspiring Entrepreneurs

Attending Startup Europe Week, Nicosia 2020? If you’re  heading to the “The Global Entrepreneurial Ecosystem” event on Thursday 19th March, you may think you’re spoilt for choice in Nicosia accommodation. But is this true? A quick look at the figures…

There are more than 42 thousand bedrooms and similar accommodation in Cyprus, according to a 2018 Statista survey. Popular online price comparison site, Expedia lists nearly 900 luxury hotels in Nicosia alone, followed by Trivago, which lists almost 700 for Nicosia accommodation.

Lifestyle Nicosia accommodation close to most major institutions

Clearly, not all of the 170,000 people who arrived in Cyprus in March 2019 (CYSTAT) sought a luxury 5 star hotel. At the same time, the number of independent boutique hotels offering a lifestyle experience – definitely attractive to aspiring entrepreneurs and business professionals – is relatively small. Especially one that is close to most of the major academic, cultural, financial, as well as government institutions in the Cyprus capital.

It’s therefore good news for busy business people that boutique independent, Hypnos by bed N’mix, is located 2.4 kms – or just 6 minutes away from the European University Cyprus, hosts of the 5th annual Startup Europe Week. Entrepreneurs brimming with energy appreciate a good night’s sleep amongst inspired designer decor as much anyone else.

Guest speakers will discuss “opportunities and challenges” in Cyprus

Startup Europe Week is a unique, world-wide initiative which develops and supports startups at the regional level. Between March 16-20, 2020, over 50 countries will host more than 100 events, and providing a platform to open up and promote local opportunities for entrepreneurs, or anyone who wants to start a business in their city, as well as connecting their regions at the international level.

In a full agenda, international guest speakers will be discussing the “opportunities and challenges” in Cyprus as part of The Global Entrepreneurial Ecosystem. One seminar will focus on, for example, “How to negotiate effectively in business”. While another will examine “Business approaches for different markets: One size fits all?”

Representatives look forward to staying at world class Nicosia accommodation

Cyprus is recognised as one of the faster growing economies in Europe with an annual 3.9 per cent increase in GDP. The island is also an upcoming innovation and entrepreneurial hub, with an increasing number of start-up accelerators and incubators. In addition, Cyprus research institutions collaborate with world-class local and international organisations to carry out large-scale innovative projects.

Undoubtedly, representatives from world class institutions and research groups might also look forward to staying at world class accommodation in Nicosia. An entrepreneurial spirit may be on the move but is always “home from home” with boutique convenience, relaxation and modern connectivity wrapped in a contemporary design aesthetic.

Lifestyle Nicosia Accommodation for Plain Sailing to Cyprus Yachting Conference

It’s only 15 minutes (6 kms) from lifestyle Nicosia accommodation, Hypnos by bed N’ mix, to Filoxenia Conference Centre where the Cyprus Yachting Conference is to be held on Thursday, 19 March 2020. Definitely ‘plain sailing’ for delegates planning to attend, with all the lifestyle facilities they need for a relaxed stay, Mediterranean-style.

Along with finance and real estate, Cyprus tourism is estimated to bring in more than three quarters (80 per cent) of the island’s income and employment. However, Cyprus is increasingly recognised as more than simply as a ‘sun sea and sand’ attraction despite record-breaking visitor figures of 3.97 million in 2019. As a result of significant investment over the last four decades, the ‘jewel of the Mediterranean’ is fast becoming a select yachting destination enjoyed by blue-chip owners of sleek sailing craft and superyacht.

Lifestyle of boutique Nicosia accommodation or onboard a superyacht

Boat and yacht ownership has soared in recent years. Recreational boat demand continues to be fuelled by new yacht technology, bigger vessel size, increase in high net worth buyers, and growing tourism. Around 830 superyachts measuring 24m or more were under construction or on order at shipyards around the world, according to Boat International, 2019.

As more men and women seek out the authentic experiences and lifestyle of exclusive boutique Nicosia accommodation in Cyprus on-land, so too, onboard  a superyacht yacht moored in the surrounding Mediterranean waters.

Insight into every aspect of the yacht owning experience

The Cyprus Yachting Conference, which is to be held in English, offers insight into every aspect of the yacht owning experience for all types of potential investors, from real estate professionals and government services to CEOs, C-suite executives and managing directors.

Amongst a full day of presentations will be analysis of the Cypriot yacht market and exploring future opportunities. Another seminar takes a close look at internal yacht design and construction, while another examines basic engine maintenance, dry docking, on-board trouble-shooting and yacht security systems.

Other practical issues discussed include all aspects of yacht insurance (including, damage to the property of others), the process of registering and licensing a yacht, maritime law, tax liabilities, hiring a yacht captain – and the benefits of professional catering!

Six impressive yachting marinas around Cyprus

There are now six impressive yachting marinas around Cyprus, including the magnificent 650-berth Limassol Marina, a 17 million euro transformation of the Old Port, which was unveiled in 2014. The Ayia Napa Marina is the latest state-of the art yachting destination while boat owners may also wish to drop anchor at the 450 berth Larnaca Marina, the time-honoured 250-berth St Raphael Marina.

Another traditional port of call to explore is the picturesque Zygi Marina between Larnaca and Limassol, and – currently still under construction – Crystal Marina, Latsi, on the Akamas peninsula, between Polis and Aphrodite Baths, where moorage is right alongside a number of restaurants and bars.

Nicosia Accommodation Nearby Gas Forum and Conference

Two annual energy conferences, which bring together delegates from governments, oil and gas suppliers and operators worldwide, are to be held in the capital in early March.

A personalised, lifestyle experience is offered at the best hotels in Nicosia where relaxed, cultural traditions come with a contemporary design and modern technology twist. A boutique hotel would definitely be viewed as appropriate for executive guests, keen to both save and restore their own valuable energy with a “good night’s sleep”.  READ MORE about Hypnos Coco Mat Sleep Systems

Energy Leaders and Investors stay at best hotels in Nicosia

Cyprus continues to play an important role as a major energy player in the Mediterranean and surrounding regions. The breakthrough came in 2007, when the government introduced offshore licensing inside its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), permitting companies to look for gas in Cypriot controlled waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

Then in 2011, gas fields were discovered in the southern Cyprus EEZ promising to diversify EU gas supplies, help reduce the island’s carbon emissions, and boost the Cyprus economy. One field was estimated to contain between 4.5 – 8 trillion cubic feet of gas. At the time, a US geological survey indicated that an expansive area of the  Mediterranean – from Cyprus to Lebanon, Israel, and Egypt – could contain more than 340 trillion cubic feet of gas – higher than US reserves, the fourth largest in the world after Russia, Iran, and Qatar.

The first of the two conferences, The Mediterranean Oil & Gas Forum (Hilton Hotel, 6th | 7th March) brings together government and energy leaders to promote American and European energy investments in Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean. Four days later, the Eastern Mediterranean Gas Conference (EMGC) – at The Landmark, 11th | 12th March – offers latest information on the region’s growing natural gas industry with exclusive representation from key ministerial offices within the region.

Nicosia accommodation for attendees from 20 countries

Since 2013, the EMGC continues to be an invaluable networking and information-sharing platform for gas operators, technology firms, suppliers, regional governments and expert analysts. All-important issues surrounding natural gas developments in the Eastern Mediterranean are analysed and discussed. Delegates have a unique opportunity to explore access to regional markets and seek potential new business partners. In 2019, the conference brought together attendees from 20 countries, including the US, Egypt, Israel, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Europe and China. Of the 187 delegates who attended, nearly a third were service suppliers (29 per cent), over a quarter were operating companies (26 per cent) and around one in six were key government officials (15 per cent).

Future energy potential looks extremely positive as Cyprus continues to uncover more gas sources further afield. In 2017, two of Europe’s biggest oil and gas producers from France and Italy found small volumes of gas in a second Cyprus field, and recently announced a further discovery reportedly similar in size to one enormous field off Egypt.

Both conferences highlight the discovery and development of gas around the Mediterranean, which will help Cyprus transition from an oil to modern gas power economy.
