Vereggaria

Hotel Vereggaria is one of the most wonderful Cypriot winter resorts of the 20th century.

Hotel Vereggaria has attracted many renowned personalities, and this is the reason why the hotel is also known as “the hotel of kings”.
To be more specific, at the beginning of the 20th century (1931) Pharouk, the king of Egypt, and Ezer Vaisman, the president of Israel resided at Vereggaria. The name of the hotel is also reminiscent of royalty, as Vereggaria was the name of the queen of Navarre, wife of Richard Lionheart. The royal couple got married in Cyprus.

It is worth mentioning that Vereggaria obtained positive reviews and this is shown in the visitors’ book, in which the “Cypriot hospitality” and “natural beauty” of its surroundings are praised.
The renovation and reopening of the Vereggaria hotel aims to boost the tourism of Prodromos and the surrounding area of Marathassa and hence, its economy. Hotel Vereggaria will be the ideal solution for everyone that appreciates winter resorts throughout the year.
The president of Salamis Tours Ltd., Mr. Vassos G. Hahjitheodossiou, aspires to bring this time-honoured hotel back to life, as this would signify the preservation of our “cultural heritage”.
It is worth mentioning that the architectural design of the hotel will be conserved and preserved, in order to protect “its historical form” and importance. However, the hotel will be renovated so as to satisfy the needs of all guests and provide them with all (modern) comforts.
The reopening of Vereggaria will enhance and upgrade the quality and quantity of tourists, as far as one of the greatest Cypriot resorts are concerned. Hotel Vereggaria will certainly be one of the main attractions of the island.
