Christmas at the Golden Bay Beach Hotel has always been a unique experience but it seems to me that this Christmas it's been the best ever in more ways than one. Everything was just perfect: the decor, the music, the joyful festive atmosphere and the food! My mother and I joined Alkis early in the afternoon on Christmas Eve, had a light snack and then went up to our rooms to take a nap and get ready for the Christmas Eve Gala Dinner while Alkis went back to work. After a hectic week at the school which ended merrily with the Christmas party on Friday afternoon, it was the best way for me to start my Christmas break.
The Christmas Eve menu was an amazing, gastronomic experience as the Executive Chef went out of his way to create .... works of art. Here's what the 6-course festive menu consisted of:
...followed by coffee and sweet bites
Apart from the food, I was particularly impressed by the Home Band who played Christmas melodies throughout this exquisite dinner and later helped us....burn some of the calories on the dance floor!
We even got Christmas weather and white Christmas for all those who celebrated high up in the mountains of Troodos. On Larnaca Bay, we got strong winds and downpours on Christmas Eve, overcast skies and some sunny intervals on Christmas Day.
How was your Christmas?
