This month, AITO specialist tour operator, Planet Holidays, part of the Sunvil family, has teamed up with recently renovated and refurbished Palm Beach Hotel & Bungalow to launch their new Greece & Cyprus, 252 page, Holidays for discerning travellers brochure.

The 4 star Palm Beach Hotel and Bungalows has been extensively renovated and upgrades featuring 5* facilities and services. With an enviable beachfront location just a short 18 minutes transfer from Larnaka Airport and 10 minutes to the centre of Larnaka town itself. Fabulous gardens surround the main hotel building and its complex of 40 bungalows which are perfect for families. Royal Suites, one on each of the hotel’s floors alongside the Ambassador and Presidential Suites in the bungalows section, have been individually designed to suit those wanting something extra special perhaps to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays or honeymoons.
