About Merit Royal Hotel


From its grand entrance to the sun-soaked lawn terraces, the circular swimming pool to the sheltered cove beach, the adults-only Merit Royal is a hotel that never fails to impress.

Overlooking its own private beachfront area on Zephyrus Cove, the 5 star Merit Royal Hotel nestles in a beautiful setting between the sparkling Mediterranean Sea and the Five Finger Mountains. The sparkle continues inside this opulent hotel, which glistens and gleams with marbled floors, rich decorations, and stunning glass fittings, complemented with contemporary lounge areas overlooking the sea. 

Luxurious, adults-only hotel 

The Merit Royal is an adult only hotel, with a no children under 15 policy. Naturally blessed with cooling sea breezes, and cradled by the rocky coastline behind, seasoned travellers and North Cyprus newcomers alike will love the hotel’s sheltered location. The hotel is both opulent and elegant, gently curving around to enclose the circular swimming pool at its centre. Stroll down to within the sound of the lapping waves and relax on the sun-drenched decking area built out over the sea, or dig your toes in the golden sands of the hotel’s private beach area on pretty Zephyrus Cove within a few minutes walk.

Five star rooms with superb views

Every one of the Merit Royal’s 125 rooms, from Standard to Royal Suite, is beautifully furnished in an opulent yet comfortable style. The Merit Royal smart room system allows you to control temperature and lighting so that it’s just right for you. Relax amid rich fabrics and real wood furnishing, and enjoy your cool, richly decorated en-suite bathroom, and take time to check the sea, pool, or mountain view from your full length windows. 

Tasty choice of international restaurants

The Merit Royal offers a mouthwatering selection of restaurants for you to choose from, and with an all-inclusive package from Go North Cyprus, you can dine in a different one every night. Dine a la carte at the Royal Restaurant, enjoy fine Italian food at the Bella Merit, Chinese cuisine at the Dragon, and some of the best seafood on the island at the beachfront Blue Sea Restaurant.

"Peaceful, romantic escape"

I surprised my husband with a week away at the Merit Royal Hotel for our first wedding anniversary. I found the hotel on the gonorthcyprus website and was very impressed with the images and reviews. Sure enough, when we arrived we found the hotel stylish, luxurious and impeccably clean. The staff on reception were lovely and we had a very nice, elegant room, furnished beautifully. The food was amazing and we...

loved the handmade chocolates after dinner! We had a flutter in the casino and enjoyed the spa very much too, my massage was wonderfully relaxing. The gardens are very nice, as is the jetty area, all picturesque and ideal for a romantic escape. The hotel is adults only so it's very quiet and the sleep quality is good. We had a wonderful time!

"Such a peaceful and luxurious break - 5 stars"

My husband and I booked a week away at the Merit Royal with gonorthcyprus and have just returned feeling very relaxed and rested. The Merit Royal is such a spectacular hotel, it really has the wow factor, and it's adults only so you get to truly relax. Our room was beautiful, the whole hotel is very opulently decorated but unlike many other hotels the rooms are no exception. We had superb views from the windows...

out over the mountains and the outdoor area is just as appealing with its beautiful little cove and pristine gardens. Great range of restaurants too so lots of choice, Italian, Chinese, seafood - there's something for everyone. Fresh breakfast buffet and a few bars too if you fancy a drink. Overall just a great place to relax in luxurious surroundings, we give the Merit Royal five stars.

"The five-star treatment"

We booked in for a week at the Merit Royal Premium with Go North Cyprus and had a ball. If you want to feel totally spoiled, there is nowhere better! Beautiful hotel with opulent decor, an amazingly long swimming pool and right on the sea's edge with its own private beach, just the place to unwind. Our room was beautiful, spacious, glamorous and had a glorious sea view. It was kept spotless for the duration of...

our stay and the other members of staff on reception and in the restaurants were equally efficient. Plentiful buffet breakfast and a fantastic choice of dishes at mealtimes, we even tried Lebanese food which we've never had before (it was delicious). Relaxed bars with excellent service, a fantastic casino and lovely spa too. We couldn't have wanted for more.
