LONDON, Oct. 9, 2009 — Interval International, a leading global provider of vacation services and an operating segment of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq:IILG), announced the addition of Pafiana Heights to its vacation exchange network. Located in the outskirts of Paphos on the southwest coast of Cyprus, the resort comprises 57 units that are furnished to high standards.
“The affiliation of this prestigious resort and spa is another quality affiliation for our company in Cyprus,” said Darren Ettridge, Interval International’s vice president of resort sales and service for Europe, Middle East, and Africa. “From 700 feet above sea level, there are breathtaking panoramic views from all the rooms overlooking the Paphos coastline and mountains.”
Amenities at the property include a spa with sauna and whirlpool; a gym and fitness centre; indoor and outdoor swimming pools; a gourmet restaurant; and a roof garden with bar. Guests also have access to on-call chef/butler and concierge services.
Paphos is a very popular tourist destination, particularly for the British, German, and Scandinavian markets. Among its many attractions are an archaeological museum, the Byzantine castle of Paphos, the Tombs of the Kings, St. Paul’s Pillar, and the Temple of Aphrodite (the Greek goddess of love and beauty). Other sights include the old harbour and the modern hotels and restaurants situated along the seaside promenade.
