Building on Cyprus’ famed hospitality, over 50 four and five-star hotels across Cyprus have united to offer the ‘The Biggest Holiday Competition in the World’ competition. Launching next Wednesday, 6th November during WTM on the CTO’s stand (EM1100), the competition will run for 50 weeks – offering the opportunity for 50 lucky winners to win 50 seven-night holidays, for a winner and guest*.

In conjunction with the CTO and Cyprus’ two Hotel Associations STEK and PASYKSE, the ‘Summer is Cyprus’ campaign will be promoted through a dedicated microsite - - and social media channels**, shining the light on Cyprus as a welcoming and choice Mediterranean holiday destination.

To be in with a chance of winning a holiday of a lifetime, entrants will be invited to visit on a weekly basis. One photo of a different hotel will be featured each week, with an option from three multiple-choice answers. The winning entry will be picked at random once a week, for 50 weeks. The prize offered by each participating hotel, will be a seven-night stay for two people in a sea-view room, including daily breakfast (prize does not include flights). For full terms and conditions, please see below.

Nick Aristou, Executive Director at Four Seasons in Limassol and campaign spokesperson, says “We are thrilled to launch 'The Biggest Holiday Competition in the World’, the largest of its kind within the travel and tourism industry. We believe that Cyprus’ tourism product is a unique offering within the Southern Mediterranean and, along with my fellow hoteliers, we are extremely proud of our island and all that is has to offer to visitors.

From our excellent range of luxury hotels, mouth-watering cuisine, warm hospitality and rich heritage – not to mention excellent weather – there is something for everyone to enjoy in Cyprus”, added Aristou.

With a year-round temperate climate, just over 4 hours flying time from London and a landscape which ranges from beautiful beaches to mountain scenery, Cyprus deservedly continues to be a popular destination for UK travellers of all ages. The friendliness of Cypriots is legendary, with its hoteliers continually providing distinguished levels of service year-on-year.
