Description from owner
Thalassa Beach Resort is set in the beautiful conservation area of Bafra, at the foot of the Karpas peninsula in Northern Cyprus. This region is acknowledged for its unspoilt beauty with glorious sandy beaches, clean Mediterranean waters and a ruggedly spectacular coastline, along with a backdrop of the Besparmak mountain range.
This high specification two bedroom, two bathroom apartment penthouse has a large private roof terrace with jacuzzi hot tub, BBQ area and shower boasting beautiful sea, beach and mountain views. Thalassa Beach is itself an idyllic peaceful location yet only a 5 minute drive from Bafra beach with its 2 x 5* hotels with restaurants, bars, water parks and casinos. The nearest town of Bogaz has a pretty harbour with excellent harbour side restaurants serving caught that day fish and the excellent local meze dishes. You will also find a well stocked supermarket here to look after all your shopping needs.
There is a large communal free-form pool, fully equipped gym with hot tub, bar restaurant / convenience store, beach volleyball court, mini golf, table tennis, kayaks, children's play area, communal BBQ area and pool bar. The complex also has has its own beautiful private beach and jetty, decked areas and sun beds, parasols and other shaded areas.
The apartment is fully furnished with an open plan lounge with HD television + Blu-ray / DVD player, dining area and kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with a gas hob and oven, additional rotisserie grill, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, espresso machine, kettle, toaster, iron and ironing board. There is also remote control air conditioning throughout.
A reserved underground car parking space is also provided. It is nice to be able to get into a cool car parked well out of the way of the hot summer sun. A lift operates from the car park and takes you to within a few feet of the apartment entrance.
Car hire with car pick-up at Ercan or taxi pick-up from Ercan or Larnaca can be arranged to make your holiday run smoothly. Driving is on the left as in the UK so is easy to adapt. There are excellent and largely traffic free roads in Northern Cyprus which make sightseeing a real pleasure. Local guide books are also provided in the apartment to plan all your excursions.
Many people do not realise that the currency in Northern Cyprus is the Turkish Lira. The economic problems with the Euro, which are in the news at the moment, are limited only to South Cyprus. Northern Cyprus has a completely separate government and financial system, which does not use the Euro. The banking system is functioning as usual and, thankfully, it is not affected by any financial problems.
You can change your pounds to Turkish Lira before departing, or whilst you are here. The exchange rate is favourable so you will find that eating out, sightseeing and shopping all represent excellent value for money. If you want to withdraw money there are plenty of cash-point machines, and banks in all of the main centres. Credit cards are widely accepted in hotels, shops and restaurants.
A holiday in Northern Cyprus is the perfect opportunity to relax and spend time with friends and family. The pace of life is unhurried and the local people friendly and welcoming.

- Very Good
Beautiful, well equipped accommodation full of well thought out extras including guide books, candles, bicycle and cigars! Other positives: underground car park; tranquility; brilliant cycling, swimming, walking, exploring, opportunities; jacuzzi on the roof terrace; beautiful surroundings/views Negatives: if you have relatives/friends in the area you might resent spending time with them outside the resort!
Owner's reply: Hi Richard, I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Thalassa and look forward to welcoming you again. Best regards, John
“Peaceful and relaxing”
A lovely remote quiet resort. All was kept clean and neat despite more building going on. The pool was beautiful as was small beach, we often had them to ourselves! The gym too was well equipped and very accessible. We would recommend hiring a car as it's several kilometer to nearest shop/ restaurant. If you like it lively this is not for you, but the people there were very friendly and welcoming and we spent several evenings at Beached ( the complex's bar) which was very enjoyable. The apartment was spacious and well equipped though a full length mirror would be good. The air conditioning was very welcome. John was helpful in suggesting local car hire, restaurants, nearest shops, directions etc he also provided a good selection of DVD s. Thank you we has a lovely 2 weeks and will be returning.
“What a wonderful place!”
There was everything we need inside the apartments. It was very convenient to cook barbecue, eat and even sleep on the roof and look at stars and moon. Owner's mountain bike was very useful, I rode it every morning. Wi-fi internet was fast enough to make video calls. Pool is very convenient for babies as there is area 25cm deep. Underground parking is very good because it was cool in the car even during hot afternoon. The only bad thing is the beach. There are sharp stones on the sea floor, water is muddy and contains some oil spots. But it is not a big problem if you have a car because Golden beach, Glapsides beach, Kaplica beach, Kaya Artemis and a lot of other great beaches are nearby from apartments.
Owner's reply: Hi Vladimir, Many thanks for your review. I am glad you enjoyed the apartment and your stay at Thalassa. With regards to the beach, the new jetty & breakwater had only just been constructed which disturbed the seabed somewhat. All of this has been remedied and is back to normal. Have a look at the beach shot (#2 in our pictures). I think you will see how fantastic this all looks now! I hope you will come back and visit soon to enjoy some more of the warm Northern Cypriot hospitality.
“Can't wait to return to idyllic Thalassa”
I had only been to Southern Cyprus before this trip, and while there are some beautiful places to visit, I feel like it's become a bit spoilt and a friend advised that Northen Cyprus would renew my love of the island....and they were right! The people are friendly and genuine, the food is absolutely delicious and there's so much natural beauty, coastline and unspoilt countryside. We stayed in a beautiful apartment in the Thalassa resort - tastefully decorated by the owner, with all mod cons, who could not have been more helpful when we booked it, giving us as much information as he could about where to go, car rentals and any other little questions we had. The resort itself has an amazing pool, but I loved lounging on the jetty that juts out into the sea from Thalassa's own private beach. The surroundings are full of wild flowers and we went on some gorgeous walks along the coast - though I think it would be too hot to do this much later than the end of May. I think it's useful to have a car as there is not anything really within walking distance, though I understand that soon after we were there a little cafe/grocery was opening on site. But in any case, it's worth having a car to explore the island a bit - the wild Karpas with its stunning beaches, a day trip to Kyrenia and Bellapais amongst others. I look forward to seeing more of beautiful places since we hope to return next year. The kitchen has everything you need to rustle up some meals with the lovely fresh local produce and there's even a barbecue on the stunning roof top balcony with views across the sea and a hot tub! We also enjoyed a few restaurants that the owner recommended that are between five and twenty minutes from the resort - ALL delicious. Everything tastes better when there's a view of the sea. There are also two 5* hotels which are a five minute drive away, where you can also eat, or we just stopped by for a drink. I'm told you can even use their facilities for a small fee, but we didn't need to as we loved the atmosphere at Thalassa. All in all it was the perfect holiday for us in a really lovely and comfortable apartment and I'm already planning my next adventure there.
