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 specializes 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.
The gently rolling hills and ancient vineyards of central Cyprus gradually give way, as you drive towards the island's north-westerly tip, to the wild and dramatic beauty of the Akamas Peninsula, named after the mythical son of Theseus.
Carpeted in the spring with wild orchids and cyclamen, this lyrical Homeric landscape is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and unspoilt parts of the island. It is a landscape fit for the Gods and so it comes as no surprise to learn that it was here that Aphrodite, who loved to bathe in the sweet waters of a local spring, first set eyes on Adonis.
Secluded on the edge of the proposed Akamas nature reserve, alongside the unspoilt little town of Polis and the charming fishing village of Latchi, yet still only a short drive away from the bustle of Paphos, you will find one of the most elegant and luxurious hotels of the Mediterranean: Anassa.
Anassa is a mere 45 minutes by car from Pafos Airport ,PFO, and 2 hours from Larnaca International Airport
