One after the other, the awards “dock” at Ayia Napa Marina!
Christmas came early for Ayia Napa Marina, with the iconic project receiving four important awards at three events in just a month! The ultimate destination for sea inspiring living and entertainment was certified as a Great Place To Work® for the year spanning from November ’22 to November ’23, was declared Best Venue at the Cyprus Wedding Awards 2022 for the Event Centre, and took the awards for Best Luxury Real Estate Developer in Cyprus & Best Luxury Mixed Used Development for Beach & Island Villas in Cyprus at the Luxury Lifestyle Awards 2022. The series of awards culminated in the highly honourable distinction of “One To Watch” at the Toque d’Or Cyprus Awards 2022 for L’ Atelier Robuchon.
Ayia Napa Marina is the first marina on the island to be certified as a Great Place To Work®, an extremely important distinction for our own tourism product, especially in the Famagusta area, thanks to the human-centric approach of the Organisation and the creation of a fair, safe and healthy work environment that promotes and recognises honourable practices, team spirit, cooperation, interest, understanding, merit, equality and universal values.
Great Place To Work’s® survey proved that the employees of the Organisation praise the safety in the work place, the fact that they are treated equally regardless of gender, race or sexual orientation, the feeling of being included and accepted as members of a big family, the possibility within the means provided to achieve their goals and that they feel proud to work for a company with highly competent management and honest and ethical practices.
“Our certification as a Great Place To Work® was just the natural progression of our commitment and effort since day one of Ayia Napa Marina’s operation, but also of the whole Organisation, towards our people, for the continuous evolution and improvement of the work environment and their personal wellbeing. Through this certification, the culture of mutual trust between the Organisation and the employees is evident and, because of them, this recognition obtains greater meaning as it comes directly from them,” stated Stavros Caramondanis, CEO of Ayia Napa Marina.
The General Manager of Great Place To Work®, Kyriakos Iacovides, stated: “Our island’s tourism industry is a sector that greatly interests us. It’s obvious that the experience of the people who travel to Cyprus is affected by the quality of service they receive. Quality service cannot exist if there’s not a positive work culture to support it. M.M. Makronisos Marina, the destination of utmost importance for our tourism product, has managed to create this work culture. We congratulate and welcome them to the family of Great Place To Work®”.
But the series of awards and distinctions don’t seem to have an end. Ayia Napa Marina also succeeded at the Luxury Lifestyle Awards 2022, the awards that focus on the recognition of excellence in the whole industrial sector and the preservation of the highest of standards in the field of real estate worldwide. After a thorough research process, the excellent reputation and the high professional achievements of Ayia Napa Marina were recognised, resulting in the ambitious project receiving the awards for Best Luxury Real Estate Developer in Cyprus and Best Luxury Mixed Used Development for Beach & Island Villas in Cyprus. Awards that demonstrate the size, the high standards and the enormous importance of the Ayia Napa Marina project, not just for the Famagusta area, but for the whole Cyprus and the SE Mediterranean.
The… early Christmas gifts of Ayia Napa Marina continued with the Silver Award at Cyprus Wedding Awards 2022 and in the Best Venue category for the top aesthetics and architecture Event Centre, one of the “crown jewels” of the Marina that is recognized as one of the most tasteful and highly functional venues on the island.
The series of awards in November was completed with the “One To Watch” award for the L’ Atelier Robuchon restaurant of Ayia Napa Marina Hospitality Limited, at the Toque d’Or awards ceremony that took place on Wednesday, November 23, 2022, in Limassol. A distinction that is an important recognition for the restaurant and its team for the first six months of operations in Ayia Napa Marina.
