One of the standout properties on the Cypriot luxury hotel scene, Anassa continues to be a firm favourite among discerning travellers, and for good reason. It is sophisticated, secluded and serene, with internal and external spaces inspired by its surroundings and the sea.
Step into a light and airy haven of local stone, marble, whitewashed wood and crisp white textiles. Even the humblest rooms are spacious and elegant. Many have private terraces overlooking the water; some even have whirlpool baths or sea-facing private plunge pools. For something special, opt for the honeymoon-worthy Adonis, Aphrodite or Anax suites, or one of the magnificent standalone residences.
Sit down to a romantic meal at Basiliko, the hotel’s intimate Mediterranean restaurant, with low, vaulted ceilings in the style of a traditional wine cellar. Or experience à la carte fine dining against the backdrop of live music at the elegant Helios restaurant. While Basiliko and Helios are best suited to adults, more relaxed meals can be enjoyed at the casual-chic Amphora. Or at Pelagos, a shaded taverna with garden and sea views, where the drama of an open kitchen takes centre stage.
Bask in the sunshine by the pool or discover the allure of the award-winning Thalassa Spa, whose restorative treatments are inspired by the sea’s salty waters. As well as tennis, yoga, fitness facilities, a kids’ club, and nearby watersports, guests can also partake in a number of curated experiences, including pottery lessons with local potter Avgoustios, private family photography sessions, and excursions to the nearby Baths of Aphrodite, where the goddess of love is said to have met her greatest amor, the handsome young Adonis.
