With an amazing 26 five star hotels dotted about the island offering 12,040 rooms, Cyprus, in proportion to population size, has more five star hotel accommodation than any other European country according to the chairman of the Cyprus Tourist Organisation Mr. Angelos Loizou. A further combined total of 37,707 hotel rooms of three and four star grade are also available enabling Cyprus to attract high quality tourism and offer a great variety of different tourist experiences all year round and due in part to the Mediterranean climate. Mr. Loizou added that the Cypriot tourist infrastructure is recognised as being superior to other comparable tourist destinations by tour operatives, according to their surveys. There is also an abundance of other types of accommodation on offer including self-catering apartments and villas, guest houses, camping and agro-tourism such as found in some coastal and mountain villages like Kakopetria in the foothills of the Troodos Mountains and Tochni village situated within easy driving distance of Governors Beach.
Visitors may take part in numerous activities such as halloumi cheese making, climbing, walking trails and cycling to name but a few. In the season Cyprus also offers skiing in the Troodos Mountains.
Cyprus is also a popular venue for international conferences and sporting events with stadium facilities enabling athletes to train at all times of the year and especially during the cold months of the northern European winter. Medical tourism is another aspect of the Cypriot tourism industry whilst many visitors find that they can take advantage of cheaper spectacles and dentistry during their holidays.
Stressing the importance of tourism to the Cypriot economy, Mr. Loizou said that at the moment tourism was doing well and more education was needed for young people coming through the education system to appreciate its importance and to provide top quality workers for the future.
