Just the right blend of five-star luxury, classical architecture and seclusion, the enchanting Anassa is set within some of the most pristine countryside in the Mediterranean, in a location overlooking one of the finest beaches in Cyprus and beyond to the Akamas peninsula and the famous Baths of Aphrodite.
Anassa means ‘Queen’ in ancient Greek, a fitting name for this truly majestic property. Guest villas exude the sleepy charm of an ancient Byzantine village; all rooms are extraordinarily spacious, and all have balconies with panoramic sea views. Some suites have private plunge pools and whirlpools on sea-facing terraces.
Anassa boasts four outstanding restaurants and the newly refurbished Thalassa Spa, which specialises in the very latest health and beauty treatments, uses products by the forward-thinking Organic Pharmacy whose ingredients are 100% chemical free.
With both outdoor and indoor pools, Anassa works equally well as a summer and a winter retreat. During the brief and mild Cyprus winter (average temperature 17oC or 63oF), guests can recline on daybeds by the indoor pool and enjoy the Spa's healthy cuisine. A sailing boat is also available for charter, in which guests can enjoy private cruises sailing around the Akamas peninsula.
