What we offer is something else, something different and anything but standard. Lesante hotel & Spa has deserved its 5 stars for its state of the art facilities, the dedicated staff, impeccable service, its luxurious design and the divine location.

Zakynthos is the most southern island of the Ionian Sea. The island is also referred as Zante or during the ancient times as Lesante.

Strategically located on the island, Lesante hotel & Spa offers an obvious gateway for seeking the natural beauty of Zakynthos. We provide an exceptional high standard of accommodation for the present day traveller, and with the intimate amount of 120 room’s exclusivity is guaranteed. A wide variety types of  rooms are available, from deluxe rooms, premium deluxe rooms, executive rooms, deluxe family rooms to junior suites, superior suites, superior suites with private outdoor jacuzzi and grand suite with private outdoor jacuzzi. All with a tailor made, modern and stylish interior, and truly every imaginable facility is en suite.

La Marquise 5* – Rhodes


In between the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea and the harmony of nature, in between the luxury of the future and the nobility of the past, the Hotel La Marquise was created, one of the largest hotel complexes of Rhodes. The Hotel covers an area of 120.000 square meters and was built like an oasis surrounded by water and vegetation completely different than the common hotels with numerous impersonal concrete floors and packed rooms. Here an exotic, relaxing, quiet and invigorating stay is guaranteed.

Infernul Calatoreste Gratuit!

De fapt, titlul pe internet era „Infantul calatoreste gratuit”, insa dintr-o eroare oculara la creier mi-a ajuns alt cuvant… dar poate nu e o greseala…

Multe oferte de Last Minute au acest „subtitlu”, desi se face reclama la o oferta de zero lei, zero euro, etc. Daca e ceva gratuit oferit de toate agentiile din tara, la ce mai facem reclama? „Va dam gratuit ceva gratuit?”

Ah… da! Cand ne taiem comisionul cu 90%, cum face un membru de vaza al „comisiei de etica si disciplina” a nu stiu carui consiliu director al nu stiu carei asociatii participanta la comitetele si comitziile oficiale ale Romaniei, asta e altceva! Noi stim foarte bine sa ne oferim rascracanati clientului din fata noastra… de ce?
Fiindca e mai usor, mai facil, nu trebuie sa te lupti pentru fiecare leu, sa-i arati clientului ca merita sa-l dea, pentru ca uite cum arata hotelul si camera si uite ce iti pune pe masa la banii astia… caci e greu sa comunici. Comunicarea onesta nu s-a nascut in turism… e mai ceva ca in politica…

Da, hotelurile bune, in Antalya si oriunde in lume, sunt „scumpe”. De ce? Pentru ca mancarea de pe masa e proaspata, nu repusa cea de ieri, alaltaieri si e diversificata. Iar apa curata din piscina necesita niste filtre care functioneaza electric… si in afara de angajatii de la RENEL (am auzit asta, nu ma blestemati) cam toata lumea plateste curentul electric. De ce? Habar n-am… asa am gasit eu societatea asta.
Si apropos, cumpar si eu painea cam din acelasi loc dar vanzatoarei nu i-a trecut prin cap sa-mi faca reducere 3 bani. Oare de ce?

Bun, nu-i spunem clientului ca asa si pe dincolo cu oferta asta, nu i-o disecam in patru sa o vada si pe fata si pe dos, dar ii spunem ca pretul reflecta calitatea? Mira-m-as… si aici incepe infernul nostru al tuturor.

Cap Verde – Hotel Oasis Atlantico Belorizonte *** (plaja)

Sa nu va ganditi ca Iuve Travel rezista pe piata de aproape 20 de ani pentru ca a vandut ORICE.  Rezistam ca agentie de turism in Cluj doar pentru ca oamenii se intorc la noi, aceeasi oameni si prietenii lor si prietenii prietenilor lor si cunoscutii lor… pentru onestitate, nu pentru ca facem sluj pe spate cu comisionul la vedere, nu pentru „GRATIS”.

Urat cuvant si care nu prea exista cu adevarat, e mai mult o himera (americanii au o vorba faina… No such thing as a free meal!)

Vacanta Faina va uram, din Ardeal…

The Birth Place of Humans



I am like Orji, the iroko tree
I have seen winds and waves
I have stood the storms and thunder,
Yet, at my feet lies Onu-iyi-ama
The little lovely lake of spring,
Where sits a swimming pool for kids.
Everyday, I see kids come and go,
Happy that they can swim and play.

I am like Duru-ejowe’s rock, yes!
I am like the rock of Gibraltar
I have seen the harshest weathers
And the wildest beasts of the jungle,
Yet, at my feet flows the cleanest water,
And everyday, many in need do come,
To Stoop and fetch my gifts of spring
Happy that enough does flow for all.

I am like Ala, the earth, yes!
I am the ground on which you stand.
I carry all that is placed on me,
Yet, I bother no one to carry me.
You may try to run the best you can,
A mile or two or a nation far,
I am, and will be there under your feet.
Happy despite your march and pounds.

I am like Ugbua, the moment now.
I have seen the past meet the future,
I have seen ages come and go, and
Generations of people born and die.
In me, on me, events take their place.
Yes! I am what time is to change,
I am ageless as well as timeless,
And surely too, I am always there.

Iuve Travel Cluj – cine suntem…

Cautati un Last Minute in  Turcia? Cautati hoteluri in Europa? Cautati un sejur cu avion din Cluj? De ce sa nu apelati la cea mai experimentata agentie pentru turism extern din Cluj?

Infiintata la 31 Mai 1993, Iuve Travel se mandreste cu mai multe premiere pe piata romaneasca de turism. Iuve Travel este prima agentie care a promovat Tunisia in Romania in 1994, sau Republica Dominicana in 1995.

Totodata, Iuve Travel este primul Dealer Autorizat al unui concern german de talie mondiala, Neckermann Reisen, inca din martie 1998.

Dorim sa promovam vacanta ieftina? Nu! Dorim sa promovam vacante si sejururi de calitate care sa va lase amintiri placute, chiar daca destinatia nu se gaseste cu avion din Cluj direct. Credem ca meritati orice efort pentru a gasi vacanta perfecta.

Fie ca este Antalya, Tunisia, Thailanda sau Seychelles, noi depunem toate eforturile pentru a va face drumul cat mai scurt si sejurul la hoteluri cat mai odihnitor. Cautam sa va oferim Serenitate, acel sentiment care te cuprinde cand admiri planeta pe care te odihnesti  si te bucuri de roadele pamantului fara sa mai socotesti  minutele scurse.

Turism inseamna oare sa ai grija unui avion ca pleaca cu prea multe locuri goale? Sau Turism inseamna grija fata de client, sa primeasca ce este mai bun pentru vacant sa? Inca de la nasterea turismului in 5 iulie 1841 – primul sejur din lume – organizat de Thomas Cook din Derbyshire, Anglia, turismul a insemnat ceva mai mult decat sa “aduni bani de la oameni”.


Ceea ce a dorit vizionarul Thomas Cook a fost sa imparta experiente cu semenii sai si sa le ofere dorinta si posibilitatea de a descoperi planeta pe care locuiesc. Iesirea din curtea casei este doar primul pas dintr-o calatorie care iti poate imbogati viata.

Credem ca in cei aproape 20 de existenta am dovedit ceva tangibil intr-o meserie care vinde amintiri si sentimente.

Nu exista vacanta perfecta dar exista dorinta de a o atinge. Noi inca o mai avem…

Va dorim un Sejur Special!
