About Merit Royal Premium Hotel


The Merit Royal Premium is the jewel in the merit hotel crown, a sumptuous five star hotel with a super-long swimming pool seafront lawns and private beach. Big, bold and confident, with exceptional levels of service, this is 5 star luxury in North Cyprus at its most enjoyable.

Positioned between the Five Finger Mountains and the deep blue Mediterranean Sea, every inch of the 5-star Merit Premium Hotel (Merit Royal Premium) makes the most of the wonderful sea views. With extensive terraces, a range of luxurious rooms and excellent service, this is an ideal hotel for a luxury family holiday in North Cyprus. 

Sea views and sun-soaked swimming pools

Sun lovers will adore the Merit Premium’s three terraces, designed for maximum sunshine and uninterrupted sea views. Relax on the hotel level terrace amongst green lawns, or stretch out by the pool that runs almost the entire length of the second terrace. Chill out in cool sea breezes in the seafront garden area, or pop along the path to the sister hotel’s decking area and secluded sandy cove beyond.

Want to know if the Merit Premium is right for your 5 star family holiday in North Cyprus? Call the team at Go North Cyprus and ask us any questions on 0800 612 6600 - we’re always happy to talk hotels!

Elegant, luxurious rooms

Sleep soundly in comfortable large beds, enjoy the mountain or sea views in the morning, or sink into a comfortable chair with a book. The bedrooms at this 5 star North Cyprus hotel are everything you'd expect, styled with clean-lined glamour and style from immaculate tiled bathrooms to elaborate head boards.

Spa and wellness on your doorstep

Stroll along the seafront to the Merit Royal Spa for massages, therapies, Turkish Baths and more. Choose from a range of relaxing treatments, enjoy the tranquility of the indoor pool, or keep your fitness levels with a workout in the Fitness Centre. 

Delightful restaurants for fine dining

Start your day with the glorious Merit Hotel buffet breakfast served in the Royal Restaurant, a dazzling display of international foods, and hot dishes cooked to order. With our all-inclusive packages from Go North Cyprus, you can choose to dine in any of the Merit Premium or Merit Royal restaurants, so you can choose a different cuisine for every night of the week, including Chinese, Italian and Lebanese. (Not every restaurant may be available to all guests, especially children, so do check with reception.) 

There’s also a selection of bars, including the Dionysos Wine House, Boardwalk bar, and a late night soup and sandwich service until 1.30am in the Lobby Bar.

Cool kids club

The Merit Premium’s kids club will keep little ones entertained for hours. The cool indoor play area includes inflatables, sit-on toys, a ball pit, mini football pitch, plus comfortable rest areas for storytelling and chilling out. Add in games consoles, art classes, arcade games and a shaded outside play area, and you’ll see why this is so popular with children and parents alike.

Merit Royal Premium or Merit Royal?

It’s easy to get the two hotels confused, especially as they share a stretch of coastline and the gardens flow seamlessly run from one to the other. The Merit Royal is an adult only hotel, with a ‘no children under 15’ policy. It's both opulent and elegant. The Merit Royal Premium is larger, more 'toned down' in decor than the Royal, and is very family-friendly without compromising on exceptional service standards. 

Easy transfers from Ercan International Airport

Fly to North Cyprus with Go North Cyprus from any of our selected UK London or regional airports, and a private taxi transfer will be included in your holiday price. So you can arrive relaxed and ready to enjoy your North Cyprus 5 star holiday at the Merit Premium.

"Fantastic five-star family getaway"

We've just returned from the Merit Royal Premium and were just blown away by our holiday. If you want five star accommodation that really is five star, this is it. The hotel is beautiful and the views are amazing, you can see both the sea and the mountains from the hotel and we had a superb room with a wonderful sea view. Very clean, tidy and spacious room with a cosy but luxurious feel. There's a massive pool...

outside and lovely lawns, lots to do inside too to keep the kids busy too, like the arcade games and play areas. The food was amazing, we were all inclusive and were able to use the restaurants in the hotel as well as those in the Royal next door. Delicious meals and a great choice of international dishes. We returned feeling impressed and well rested.

"Luxurious yet welcoming hotel, excellent break"

If you're looking for luxury for all the family you can't go wrong with the Merit Premium Hotel. I got a great deal for the family through Go North Cyprus, which included transfers, so added extra value. We were made to feel valued and welcomed by the staff and given a spacious and well equipped family room that was clean and finished to a high standard. The buffet breakfast is plentiful and lots of variety....

The children really enjoyed the kids club and the whole hotel feels very family friendly. Saying that, you can also use the hotel next door which is adults only but great if you want a romantic dinner or to use the spa for while the little ones are at the club. We all enjoyed our stay, the staff were very attentive and everything was well kept for the duration. We'd love to return!

"Relaxation in the lap of luxury"

We went away for a week with gonorthcyprus and stayed at the Merit Premium Hotel, just me and my husband for a quiet break. Lovely hotel, very sleek and well-kept throughout. We had a spacious room that was well appointed with a large, comfortable bed and luxurious bathroom. Great circular swimming pool at the centre of the hotel and beautifully striking views from the decking over the sea. Private beach is...

just a few minutes away and perfect for a bit of sunbathing. We don't have children and it was wonderful to find an adults-only hotel just to enjoy complete peace and each other's company. We had a few treatments in the spa and enjoyed them very much, there's also a wellness centre, fitness suite and a whole host of bars and restaurants - great variety! It was a fantastic, unforgettable holiday, thank you GoNorthCyprus!
