Trends / Spring Break

From May until the end of summer, Ayia Napa, on the island of Cyprus, blossoms from a quiet little resort town into one of the most happening spring break destinations around. The cozy seaside village becomes jam-packed with throngs of young men and women looking to have a good time, and boy does it deliver.

 

Dozens of clubs extend hours and open doors to revelers during the season. Aqua Club is probably the most well known of the circuit, and boasts an indoor pool and a capacity for 700 people. It fills to the brim almost every night. Castle Club, on the other hand, is known worldwide and was once named one of the Top 50 clubs in the world. There’s also Blue Moon Bar, oddly popular among the Swedes.

 

Throughout the day you’ll have no trouble finding parties along the many beaches in and around Ayia Napa, or you can take a drive to one of the larger cities on the island. However, they’re a little less accommodating to raucous crowds.

 

If you’re looking for a place to kick up your heels, check out Hotel Pambos Napa Rocks. It’s cited as the de facto headquarters for spring breakers in Ayia Napa and boasts three pools, a gym and restaurants, surrounded by bars. There’s also Hotel Napa Prince, which a short 700 meters from the beach. It’s also a short walk from the city’s nightlife district. For a ritzier stay, book a room at Napa Plaza. This adults-only hotel features nine restaurants, a large swimming pool, gorgeous rooms and a five-minute walk to the beach.

Hotel Bonaventure

While the snow continued to fall at a steady clip, my taxi pulled up outside Hotel Bonaventure Montréal. A quick departure from my cab and a few steps later, I was taken in by the distinctive style of the entrance corridor. A quick elevator ride to the lobby is necessary because Hotel Bonaventure Montréal sits on the final two floors of a 17-story business and professional complex. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Montréal, and even connects to the city’s underground concourse.
