Certainly one of our most popular training venues that we have been coordinating groups to for nearly 15 years. An ideal venue for groups of all ages, the Olympic pool is situated adjacent to the hotel, perfect for convenience and overall swimmer supervision. Through the years many National teams as well as club level teams, have chosen this facility for their warm weather training camp.
The 50m fresh water heated Olympic pool can be used for Swimming Training, Synchronised Swimming (meets FINA regulations) and Waterpolo. 2 x 2-hour training sessions are permitted throughout the day. There is a gym and health suite at the hotel. Teams can use a number of areas for land training and in addition to the hotel gym, groups can also use a private swim-specific gym at a supplement.
This pool was the venue for the Athens 2004 pre-Olympic training camp for the Team GB squad and after this event the pool management contacted us to help promote the pool and its facilities to UK swimming clubs. The pool is now used by international and club swimmers of all ages. A first-class training facility!

Direct flights to Cyprus are available from many UK regional airports into both Paphos or Larnaca airports. Paphos airport is nearest to Coral Bay with airport transfers taking 35 – 45 mins. Group airfares to Larnaca airport are often cheaper but it is important to bear in mind that the airport transfer can take between 1hr 45 mins – 2 hours and the money saved on the flight could be spent on the longer transfer.
Direct scheduled flights are with British Airways, but now with airlines such as Monarch and Cyprus Airways no longer operating, many of the routes are now serviced by Easyjet, Ryanair and Jet2.
