Welcome to Lavris Hotels & Spa
What can we say about an emotion that is rooted to our being, embedded in the core of our heart?
I wonder, is it a state of mind or is it an obsession? Is it a passion to discover unexplored horizons both geographic and within ourselves?
I have ceased long ago trying to define it. I just live with it; I call it "Love to travel"!!
I have been fortunate that I had the pleasure to travel widely from an early age. My parents, who founded Lavris Hotels & Spa in 1980's had come to believe that travel and its consequent exposure to worlds that are distinctively separated from our daily life, are great educators.
That belief was the first stone that held his dream to provide to people not only shelter but also information and experiences as well as become the fire-lighter to abandon prejudice, exchange ideas, and move eagerly through cultures, borders, religious, art, food, music, literature…
Lavris Hotels & Spa bear the name of one of Minoan's civilizations strongest symbols; the double axe.
Minoans were great travelers and traders, and their cultural contacts reached far beyond the island of Crete - to Old Kingdom Egypt, to copper-bearing Cyprus and the Syrian coasts beyond, as well as to Anatolia.
They were people of adventure and one of the most discussed civilizations in modern world.
Lavris Hotels & Spa hold tightly this spirit. For us, the double axe is the symbol of unification. As the oceans mix and blend and flow into one another, let also people act the same.
We are looking forward to welcoming you,
Managing Director & CEO
