We are an authentic village resort of Cyprus aiming for green , sustainable , healthy and harmonious living.
ZENING resort village was built 25 years ago and renovated 4 years back. It was built by Leonidas Georgiou, a visionary who wanted to create a traditional Cyprus village paradise in nature for a getaway from stresses of modern life. ZENING Elia Village retains all of the authentic charm and spirit of this creation and has added to it a touch of zen and healthy wellbeing lifestyle. ZENING is host to nearly 6,000 guests each year for the past 20 years. Our guests are usually sophisticated , highly educated, spiritually inclined persons who wish to immerse themselves in nature and find deep harmony and relaxation. ZENING is not a hotel for show-off or pretensions. We are not able to and do not aim to satisfy those seeking expensive materialistic pretentious lifestyle. Nearly 70% of our guests return. Nearly 30% return several times in the same year. Many guests come for yoga and wellness workshops and masterclasses. We are proud that people of high academic, artistic and scientific mind on a path to spiritual harmony choose our resort for their vacation.
We provide full disclosure so our new guests may know what to expect at ZENING.
As is abundantly evident from description, drone videos and images, ZENING is a green, sustainable eco resort village on a large territory. It has a mission philosophy to provide healthy holiday to guests by giving a connection to nature and nutrition.
We are aware that of nearly 50,000 guests of ZENING of which nearly 5,000 are regular visitors over the last decades, some take the time to write their feedback and comments. In 4 years since new opening as ZENING Elia Village, we have received and read nearly 2,000 responses from guests that give us the enthusiasm and encouragement to continue in our mission. We are also aware that from these guests of ZENING about 15 visitors have posted highly negative comments about our hotel on internet. We respect all opinions.
We strive to attend to every guest need and demand during their vacation. We request guests not to wait till the end of vacation and make us aware of their needs, their comments and their demands. We assure our guests we will be found doing our very best.
We ask our guests to be aware of following factors:
ZENING has large acreage on a hill, requiring much walking on hilly paths steps and slopes. It requires walking.
The village has 145 homes and they all have individual plumbing, cooling and heating. Hot water is provided by solar heaters and electric backup heaters are available. Due to these factors of localization please have patience for pumps, motors to kick in and permit a few minutes before free flow of heated water. A village is not a city and our development does not have the infrastructure of a modern town. Please expect a village.
Cars and carts are not permitted inside resort and must be parked on lower level access road. We request that guests understand it is for serenity of resort, safety of children and calm vacation for all. It is a rule and we do not accept rage or aggression from drivers of vehicles. Cars will not be permitted inside the resort except service vehicles and for loading and unloading by permit.
Resort is in a remote village of Cyprus and it is not built and designed as a business hotel. As a result there is no wifi internet in rooms. There is a limited wifi hotspot. If you are seeking 24×7 high speed connectivity please choose another resort.
By law we must have TVs in rooms and we do. But there is no cable TV and no international channels. If you require to be in front of TV with dozens of channels on your vacation, we are not able to provide such facility.
ZENING is a no-smoking territory with designated smoking zone. We ask our guests to not smoke anywhere around the property, nor in verandas or balconies and certainly not in rooms. There is a very high risk of fires in this region and we really do not want our place burnt down by careless cigarette disposal. This is the law and we understand that it annoys some people but just as we are not permitted to smoke on airplanes, we are not permitted to smoke just anywhere in ZENING. We will reserve the right to ask guests to leave, and or initiate police case for violation of law just as any office, airline or building in Europe would. We request guests to respect laws of Cyprus and rules of our business which are for everyone’s safety and security.
We are remote from large cities and urban sprawl. We are very fortunate to employ some warm, genuinely hospitable and friendly people from villages of the area. We also welcome staff from the continent. These members of team ZENING are simple, good people. It is possible that some of them do not have the highest education in profession but we prefer to have individuals that work from the heart and serve from grace. We do not tolerate any verbal abuse or aggression toward our staff and if guests are expecting super-robotic efficiency we inform them they will find only humans.
ZENING Elia Village has more than 145 homes. These homes are services, maintained, gardens watered, trees trimmed and there is a hum of activity which is normal and necessary. Our team work very hard under the sun and you will greatly appreciate their efforts. It is necessary on some extreme occasions when heat index is orange or there is a a high temperature alert, it is unsafe to work during midday hours. At such times, we advise our guests that we give our team members some hours off. This can cause some delays in service but we ask guests to appreciate that human life and safety come first and beds can be turned and rooms refreshed a bit later in the day when temperatures cool.
