                        ‘A LA CARTE BLANCHE’ AT THALASSA, CYPRUS
        Leading luxury boutique hotel launches bespoke gourmet dining packages

Cyprus’ finest small luxury hotel, Thalassa Boutique Hotel and Spa, has launched its pioneering ‘a
la carte blanche’ dining packages, individually tailored to each guest’s tastes and preferences to
create a magical evening of elegance and gastronomic enjoyment. Whether to celebrate a special
occasion or simply as a treat, guests can now experience truly personalised fine dining at a private
location of their choosing within the beautiful surrounds of Thalassa – for example, overlooking the
Mycenaean ruins - and indulge in up to seven or their favourite courses.

In direct consultation with guests, celebrated head chef Shuki Salem will create an exquisite,
bespoke dinner made using the finest handpicked local ingredients, including herbs grown in the
hotel’s own garden. Shuki and his team relish the challenge of designing individual menus
including anything from foie grais and duck terrine, caramelised fresh figs and dark chocolate to
start; to an entrée of succulent, marinated beef fillet with grilled aubergine carpaccio and oyster
mushroom relish or saffron poached sea bass with black mussels; with something suitably sticky
for dessert, such as mascarpone and coffee parfait.

A selection of fine wines will be recommended to complement each uniquely designed course, and
served by a dedicated private butler. The gourmet dining packages are available for a minimum of
two to a maximum of six guests, who can end the lavish evening enjoying moonlit views of the
Mediterranean with a digestif in Thalassa’s cliff-top Captain’s Bar.


The innovative dining concept further illustrates Thalassa’s commitment to providing the utmost in
service to its guests, and complements the hotel’s existing dining options; including the Psari
seafood grill, serving sublime seafood with a twist; and Ambrosia, tempting palettes with a taste of
traditional Cypriot and Mediterranean cuisine.

Boasting contemporary elegance and exceptional personal service, Thalassa Boutique Hotel and
Spa also offers sumptuous suites commanding stunning 270 degree coastal views overlooking
Coral Bay near Paphos, and a sensational range of signature treatments at Anagenisis, Cyprus’ first
holistic spa.

Thalassa’s gourmet dining packages are priced at approximately €100.00 per person, based on
seven courses and a glass of champagne. For more information on the dining packages and
reservations,    contact    the   hotel   directly    by   telephone    +357     26    881    500    or   email
