About Us

As Arkin Group, we took our first steps into the hospitality industry with The Arkın Colony Hotel, in Kyrenia; our first hotel in Cyprus. The following years saw the group expanding its contribution to North Cyprus tourism by opening the Arkin Palm Beach Hotel in Famagusta, a hotel with an unprecedented quality and vision on the island.

Thanks to our successful growth graph, led by company founder, Erbil Arkin, the group moved into the tourism and yachting sectors as well as hotel management.
This was followed, in 2017, with a move into the education sector with the opening of ARUCAD, the Arkin University of Creative Arts and Design. This is a thematic art university that is wholly dedicated to the fields of art, design and communication. 

In addition to our existing ventures, we proudly introduced The Arkin Iskele Hotel, in 2022 marking our continued commitment to excellence and innovation in the hospitality industry. The Arkin Iskele Hotel represents another significant milestone in our journey, combining luxury, comfort, and a unique experience for our guests.

With our 25 years of experience we have continued our activities is tourism and other sectors with our successful business ventures in Europe, South America and the Middle East.
