About Palm Beach Hotel
Jewel of North Cyprus
The newest 5* boutique hotel in Famagusta area, Every GNC team member describe the Palm Beach after their visit "A gem of a hotel"! You will not want to leave. With a rich history of entertaining the rich and famous long before Cyprus was divided, the beautiful beach area attracted stars in the 1950’s-60’s. Completely renovated and practically rebuilt, the 5* boutique Palm Beach Hotel sits above a pristine, uncrowned stretch of sandy beach, with efficient and friendly staff ready to treat you like a VIP!
Perfect Position for Relaxing by the Sea
The Arkin Palm Beach Hotel nestles in the southern part of Famagusta Bay, a glorious sweep of golden sand that stretches for miles. Step out of the hotel and straight onto the beach, for lazy days on a sun lounger accompanied by pretty oriental umbrellas, listen to the gentle wind chimes and the lapping of the waves, or a cooling dip in the sparkling Mediterranean Sea.
This confirms how clean the sea really is.
Walk the pristine soft sands of the beach for 10 minutes north to explore the ancient city of Famagusta, with its mighty Venetian walls and impressive towers. Or, gaze into history at the former celebrity hotspots now untouched in the border 'buffer' zone of Maras. You will even have a chance to witness the caretta Turtles swimming too.

"Relaxing couples break"
We found the Palm Beach Hotel on the gonorthcyprus website and booked for a week. Our room was a decent size, pleasant and very comfortable, with a nice, modern bathroom and very good wifi. The location is great if you want to explore the ghost town of Famagusta, which is about 15 minutes away on foot, and there's also direct access to a beach nearby too. The restaurant is great and the staff friendly and...
attentive, we had the buffet breakfast every day and found it to be superb. We also used the spa which was lovely. A nice relaxing trip for two.

My husband and I booked a short break away at Palm Beach Hotel through Gary at gonorthcyprus and we've returned feeling completely pampered. When we arrived we were made to feel very welcome, the staff take an interest in their guests and were helpful and attentive during our entire stay. We had a lovely room with a terrace, very clean and well maintained with a superb sea view. Breakfast was varied and very...
nice every day and the waiter, like the rest of the staff, was attentive and friendly. Beautiful outdoor terrace bar area and prices were excellent. Clean beach area, rocky in parts, and a nice indoor pool, sauna and steam area. You can walk into Famagusta in about ten minutes, which is great for sightseeing. We didn't want to leave. Even when we did because it was time to go home, the staff packed us a takeaway breakfast, which was very considerate and just shows how much they value their customers. Excellent.
Sally from Newport
I visited Palm Beach Hotel with my husband back when it was the Arkin and we were keen to see how the place has changed since it was renovated, so we booked a week away with gonorthcyprus. It's been updated and is generally more appealing throughout. We had a good-sized room, very clean with a comfortable bed. The decor is nice and neutral. Food is excellent, especially the lunchtime bar meals - the buffet is...
always plentiful and everything is well cooked. Staff are welcoming and friendly, although not everyone speaks very good English. Overall the hotel is stylish and relaxed, it's right by the beach which is wonderful and there's a great pool and casino. The hotel will book you a taxi to get into the old town to do a bit of exploring. Very restful break.
