About the Owner

Hi... a little bit about us ... we are a family with 2 children and live in London. Life has it's usual habit of keeping us extremely busy so don't have as much time for holidays as we would like.

We purchased our apartment at Thalassa off plan and fell in love with the location... it is truly unspoilt.

We have tried to make our apartment as comfortable as possible and a kitchen fully equipped with all the essentials that you would need....for us it is a home from home !

The apartment is very well equipped, there is everything there that you need.

It is spacious and the roof terrace has amazing views to the sea or the mountains. The sunset over the mountains is spectacular.

The resort itself has so many facilities. We enjoyed the massive swimming pool, kayaks and played mini golf and bowls. The games room is well equipped.

The spa was due to open after we left but was looking great.

The restaurant is good and they had just built wood burning ovens for homemade bread and pizzas.

We had a fantastic relaxing holiday.

The resort is isolated so a car is a must to explore the island.

We will be back.

Excellent Base to explore North Cyprus

  • 4 of 5

Your apartment was fabulous. Due to the weather we were not able to take advantage of the roof terrace but would expect that in the better weather this will be a good suntrap.

The rooms were all clean and the kitchen equipment supplied covered all our requirements.

The facilities on site are brilliant and as a family we walked along the beach, played bowls and miniature golf all with equipment supplied at no extra cost.

The play park on site is all brand new and at the time they were renovating what looks like a fantastic pool and the shop area.

This is an excellent place to base yourself to tour Famagusta and the peninsula area, a car is a must.

All in all we had a wonderful relaxing time and would consider contacting you again to book this apartment. I have also mentioned your apartment to colleagues and friends and will pass on your details.

Great relaxing time

  • 4 of 5

It was our first time to North Cyprus the Apartment is about 45 minutes drive away from the airport. when we got to the apartment we were pleasantly surprised how big it was. The fact that there is a large roof terrace up with a hot tub is a bonus. The views are breathtaking. The location is great and very clean. About 5 mins walk to the beach. People are friendly. If you like walking there are some great long walks through the mountains. Car is a must. We had a great time relaxing, walking and would go back there again.

From the Owner

We have always had a soft spot for Cyprus ...friendly people, good food at very reasonable prices, lots of history and stunning landscapes (you can be in a snow covered mountain one minute and basking on the beach a couple of hours later) ! So when an opportunity came to purchase an apartment at Thalassa, it was a no brainer ! We are extremely pleased with our Penthouse apartment and hope you enjoy it too.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Turtle conservation on the island, historical sites and castles in Salamis and surrounding areas.


Direct access to private beach is a couple minutes walk from the apartment.


Thalassa is easily accessible from 2 airports:

Ercan airport in Northern Cyprus is only 68km away (50 minutes)

Larnaca airport in Southern Cyprus is 94km away (1 hour 15 minutes) - there is a border crossing of sorts but formalities and very straight forward.

Car hire is recommend. Can arrange Taxi & Car hire if you wish.


Bogaz is about 15 minutes away, you will find a selection of beach front restaurants & bars.

There is a large Supermarket (Lemar - like Tescos) just before Bogaz which has a huge selection of fresh fruit & vegetables, meat, chicken, fish, groceries and even frozen produce from Iceland!

Further Details:

Currency is Turkish Lira (TL). If you buy Turkish Lira in North Cyprus, you get a better exchange rate. The nearest bank is the Universal Bank on main road leaving Bogaz, on the right hand side of the road.

Prices of meals in restaurants are very cheap in north cyprus. i.e Mezza and main meal from 18TL to 35TL.

Petrol stations/Garages are not self service. Someone will serve you. Fuel prices hardly vary between the different garages.

From the Owner

If you want a truly relaxing holiday where you can "get away from it all" then Thalassa Beach Resort is definitely the place for you ! The pace of life is very relaxed and with brilliant sunshine most of the year and a beach setting you will struggle to find a reason to get stressed ! In addition, Northern Cyprus uses the Turkish lire currency - a very favourable exchange rate means you will get so much more for your money. So what's stopping you? Be adventurous and experience the beauty of North Cyprus and the Thalassa Beach resort.
