Like the name suggests, this hotel is the harbour’s white pearl. Even from afar you can see the stark white building excel in the sunshine when walking along the promenade. White Pearl Hotel has without a doubt the best location in Kyrenia. Here you can relax amidst the lovely harbour atmosphere, surrounded by the fresh sea air and the distant hum of the nearby fish restaurants. The hotel is an ideal base for those wishing to know the city by foot. Here you can stroll around the cobblestone-covered streets, sit down at a café and just enjoy the tranquility. A stone’s throw from the harbour you will find a maze of small alleys with picturesque architecture that has been allowed to emerge for several centuries.
The family-owned boutique hotel, which has a natural place in the popular Lonely Planet guide book, is especially appreciated for its spectacular views of the harbour and the medieval Kyrenia Castle. The hotel has nine spacious rooms, all bearing the names of historic Cypriot places. One advise is to book well in advance, as it quickly booked up during the summer months.
Up on the roof terrace, White Pearl Hotel has a very renowned Indian restaurant. It distinguishes itself from other Indian restaurants on the island by offering one hundred percent traditional Indian flavours, prepared by an Indian chef. Their own ground spices, which are directly imported from India, promise fireworks for the taste buds. It is the only restaurant in this part of the island where one can order delicious dishes like Honey and Peanut Cauliflower Masala. Here, diners enjoy their food to a panoramic view of the glittering harbour, framed by the Mediterranean Sea and Kyrenia mountain range towering in the background.
