Personally curated from top to toe by owner Natali Martini, Sir Paul Hotel is like no other. The building was part of Natali’s inheritance and her love of family and history led her to renovate it and create a home away from home for all her guests. Natali named the Hotel as a tribute to her great-grandfather, Sir Paul George Pavlides. Paul Pavlides was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II as Sir in 1955. Special mention is made in The London Gazette in 1955, which states that “Whitehall, March 18, 1955: The QUEEN was pleased on Tuesday, the 15th instant, at Buckingham Palace, to confer the honor of Knighthood on Paul George Pavlides, Esq., C.B.E.. Her Majesty’s approval of this Knighthood was signified on 1st January 1955” (The London Gazette, 18 March, 1955, pp. 1630). The knighthood was conferred as a New Year Honours 1955 appointment and was one of Queen Elizabeth’s II appointments to reward and highlight good works by citizens of those countries. They were announced on 1 January 1955 to celebrate the year passed and mark the beginning of 1955. Sir Paul Pavlides, a prominent member of the local society and a successful entrepreneur was given the honor of Knight Bachelor. Following such important history, it would be only natural to name the hotel to Sir Paul, preserving the spirit of a great man whose work and social contribution was very important for Cyprus.
