Family friendly, Peaceful Location With Stunning Views..... A Nature-Lovers Paradise in Bafra, Nr. Famagusta (North Cyprus)
About munir meghjee
Hi... a little bit about us ... we are a family with 2 children and live in London. Life has it's usual habit of keeping us extremely busy so don't have as much time for holidays as we would like. We purchased our apartment at Thalassa since we fell in love with the location... it is truly unspoilt. We have tried to make our apartment as comfortable as possible and a kitchen fully equipped with all the essentials that you would need....for us it is a home from home !
Why munir meghjee chose Bafra
We have always had a soft spot for Cyprus ...friendly people, good food at very reasonable prices, lots of history and stunning landscapes (you can be in a snow covered mountain one minute and basking on the beach a couple of hours later) ! We are extremely pleased with our Penthouse apartment and hope you enjoy it too.
What makes this Apartment unique
If you want a truly relaxing holiday where you can "get away from it all" then Thalassa Beach Resort is definitely the place for you ! The pace of life is very relaxed and with brilliant sunshine most of the year and a beach setting you will struggle to find a reason to get stressed ! In addition, Northern Cyprus uses the Turkish lire currency - a very favourable exchange rate means you will get so much more for your money. So what's stopping you? Be adventurous and experience the beauty of North Cyprus and the Thalassa Beach resort.

Excellent spot in North Cyprus
If you was like me 1st time in North Cyprus, treat yourself and rent this apartment. It is gorgeous, well maintained and with everything you need. The owners always respond for inquiry via email. The complex itself is very good with they own beach what you need more! Restaurant in the complex is good if you want to rest one day or two in the complex.
To reach the resort remember to pass all the Cassinos, and carry on driving. You must have a car hire if you want to go out & about. If you go in the hit summer the resort also has pools and toboggans.
Relaxed Quiet Resort
The property was clean and well equipped. It was very spacious with plenty of room for our family of four. Being on the end there was very little noise from neighbouring apartments and the roof terrace was another large space we could relax in, giving good views.
The resort was very relaxing with a good restaurant and well stocked shop. All the facilities were in very good condition. The pool was a great place to relax always being able to find a place in the shade, the same can be said about the private beach too. With the kids making the most of the water sports on offer.
It was also well located to visit the north of the island, we had many trips out including to the Troodos mountains and more locally Famagusta was an interesting visit.
All in all we had a wonderfully relaxing holiday and I would thoroughly recommend.
Thank you Richard for a wonderful review .. we are really pleased you & your family had a wonderful holiday; we look forward to welcoming you back again.
A comfortable apartment with everything you need, relaxing resort
We stayed for 18 days at Thalassa beach and really enjoyed our time at the resort.
First the negatives to get it out the way, you will need a car Thalassa Beech is a little remote but dont let that put you off as it alows you to travel around Cyprus and see some great places.
Tha apartment could do with a little spent on additional seating/loungers on the upper patio and maybe morre comfortable beds.
But that is about the worst I can say.
The apartment is spacious and well equiped, all the utensils you need.
A large dining table and plenty of seating in the lounge and snug /game area with an Xbox and several games for the kids.
Wifi both in the apartment and around the resort which for the most part works fine.
Nice balcony off the lounge with views of the garden and sea.
Spiral staircase to the roof terrace which has sun all day long with a small jaquzzi.
There is a shower on the roof terrace and a sink with work surafce adjacent a BBQ which is very handy.
The roof terrace is huge but could do with some extra equipment which the owner has commented he is looking into, with a little investment would really be a crowning glory to the apartmet as it has a great view over the resort,pool, sea and mountains with graet sunset views and probally sunrise if I was up that early.
The apartment is idealy situated in the resort a few minutes from all the amenaties, pool, restaurant, gym, beach, sea and a new indoor pool and wellness center.
If you want a relaxing resort then this is for you, enough to keep the kids happy between the pool, slide, mini golf, bowls, water sports, bike hire , tennis courts and football field so plenty to do.
We never struggled for a sunlounger around the poor and the beech was mostly unused.
the restaurant on site is small but has a nice feel with friendly staff run, the food was excelant and at a really good price typically £40 for 5 of us to eat and drink. It also has a small shop in the back of the resteraunt for more than basic needs of bread, milk, water. The bigger supermarkets are at least a 5-10 min drive away with the biggest one about 25 mins away by car.
Top tip the village you pass on the way back to the main road has a water refill station it cost 3 TL to fill a 10L bottle so not just cheaper but lets you keep down on the plastic bottles you throw away.
Its not as developed as the Greek side but a lovely place to stay, I will come back even thought about buying there is somethjing about the place.
A wonderful property in a peaceful location
The apartment is very well equipped with everything you need and the Thalassa beach resort is lovely. We were met at the gate by the management company who showed us to the apartment which was spacious, clean and comfortable. The complex has everything you need, we enjoyed playing tennis, using the fitness centre and swimming both at the beautiful pool and beach. It is very remote but it has a small shop selling essentials and a lovely little restaurant. The prices were very reasonable (25TL for a salad) and the exchange rate was roughly 13TL = £1 while we stayed. The beach was very well equipped with sunloungers, beach huts (new and were being roofed while we stayed), kayaks and paddle boards, all free to use. The staff work tirelessly to keep the complex clean and tidy. We did hire a car for a couple of days and did go out a couple of times but generally we would have been just as happy to stay at the apartments for the whole week. It was the best apartment and location we’ve stayed at (if you want to get away from it all and relax).
Thank you Eleanor for a wonderful review .. we are so pleased you and your family had a great time. Finishing the review with "it was the best apartment and location we've stayed at" was the total icing on the cake. We look forward to welcoming you back again sometime. Thanks again.
Fabulous stay in a hidden piece of paradise!!
A wonderful stay in a beautiful setting. Excellent facilities and thoughtfully equipped accommodation. Owners were very good at communication and enabled a swift and efficient entry and exit.
A brilliant place to go with families and also for couples...from the roof terrace with a jacuzzi allowing panoramic views in decadence...to the facilities on site. There is a games room and gym and sauna area. Pool is exceptional and proximity of the beach is ideal to provide a multi-generational party to enjoy. With a fab restaurant and shop on site you need never leave...However plenty of local tourist attractions and fabulous restaurants.
This is our second visit. Cannot wait for our next visit to paradise!!
We are soooooo pleased that you had such a wonderful holiday ... it really makes us feel really happy when our guests enjoy their holiday and go back home with the some wonderful memories.
Thank you for visiting us again ... it a double bonus when guests enjoy so much that they come back again .. and again :)
We look forward to welcoming you again.
The perfect holiday
If your looking for a clique high end of town holiday, well this is not for you. This is an amazingly quite place set in a beautiful resort. Whilst not spectacular, it has enough, to entertain the whole family.
The apartment is spacious with a large balcony that you can sit and watch the ocean as the waves crash into the shore.
There is a small restaurant, pool and bar, small slides and a sandy beach.
The staff are friendly and everyone has a smile. And why not, your in paradise after all.
The host was very helpful and truly wants his guests to have a great experience.
For those who are prepared to step away from the packaged holidays, that want value for money, then look no further.
The apartment, the host, the location and the resort all fantastic. We could not have asked for more.
We will be back.
Special interest holidays:
Turtle conservation on the island, historical sites and castles in Salamis and surrounding areas.
Direct access to private beach is a couple minutes walk from the apartment.
Thalassa is easily accessible from 2 airports:
Ercan airport in Northern Cyprus is only 68km away (50 minutes)
Larnaca airport in Southern Cyprus is 94km away (1 hour 15 minutes) - there is a border crossing of sorts but formalities and very straight forward.
Car hire is recommend. Can arrange Taxi & Car hire if you wish.
Bogaz is about 15 minutes away, you will find a selection of beach front restaurants & bars.
There is a large Supermarket (Lemar - like Tescos) just before Bogaz which has a huge selection of fresh fruit & vegetables, meat, chicken, fish, groceries and even frozen produce from Iceland!
Currency is Turkish Lira (TL). If you buy Turkish Lira in North Cyprus, you get a better exchange rate. The nearest bank is the Universal Bank on main road leaving Bogaz, on the right hand side of the road.
Prices of meals in restaurants are very cheap in north cyprus. i.e Mezza and main meal from 18TL to 35TL.
Petrol stations/Garages are not self service. Someone will serve you. Fuel prices hardly vary between the different garages.
