Karpaz Gate Marina is the new luxury marina in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC). It is part of Karpaz Bay Resort, a development owned by an international group of investors, which will be a first class tourist destination and a gateway for accessing the range of activities of the local “Karpaz” Peninsula.
The marina was soft-launched in June 2011 and will be completed later this year. It is Northern Cyprus’ first luxury marina, and has a total of 300 berths, including those designed for superyacht and megayachts. As well as the marina, the development will include a lively commercial promenade with shops, restaurants and bars, and the first stage of a hotel complex. A new contemporary restaurant called ‘Hemingway’s Restobar’, which is located on the marina promenade, opened in July.
Hemingway’s is a lively and elegant restaurant offering formal and casual dining. Visitors to the restaurant can enjoy a diverse range of freshly-prepared and delicious dishes including breakfast, lunch and dinner, all of which are prepared to the highest standards. The menu includes an exciting and extensive range of international dishes, such as fresh fish, meat, pasta and traditional Cypriot fare, and is complemented by a surprising wine list with something for every palette.
The extensive outdoor terrace is an ideal place for visitors to while away the hours, admiring the views of the turquoise waters and boats in the marina as they come and go. Later this year a roof top bar will be added to Hemingway’s, which will add a further attraction and will offer panoramic views of the marina and beyond.
Renowned interior designer Sinan Kafadar of Metex Design Group was selected to design Hemingway’s and to create the inspirational and relaxing environment which is now open to visitors. The Group’s international projects have included award-wining hotels and resorts including the Four Seasons Hotel in Istanbul and Kempniski in Bodrum, among many others.
Named after the American author Ernest Hemingway, who penned the famous novella entitled The Old Man and the Sea, the new restaurant is one of the main attractions at the new luxury marina and is an ideal destination for locals and tourists both day and night.
