Anassa, meaning ‘queen’ in ancient Greek, is considered one of the top luxury resorts in Europe. The jewel in Cyprus’ crown, the hotel has been built in the style of a traditional local village overlooking a long, secluded beach and the Mediterranean Sea which can be fully enjoyed from the excellent range of watersports on offer!
Tumbling down a secluded hillside, the resort’s classical low-rise buildings, 4 Private Residences and charming gardens are arranged around an idyllic village square complete with Byzantine chapel. Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, facilities are inspired by the surrounding landscape, from the extensive Thalassotherapy programme in the luxury Roman-style “Thalassa Spa” to local, seasonal produce served in 5 ‘farm-fresh’ restaurants.
Facilities & Activities
Anassa’s crowning feature is arguably its award-winning and world-renowned spa- Thalassa. Featuring a serene sky-lit roman style pool, 18 different treatment rooms, saunas, steam baths and the signature thalassotherapy baths and jet showers, a few hours escape here will undeniably provide a truly relaxing experience.
Guests can swim in the crystal waters off the 150m private beach or either of the 2 swimming pools if preferred. For those seeking a more energetic experience then numerous activities are available on site, from a range of mountain and racing bikes available to take out on nearby roads and trails, a wide array of water sports, a PADI certified dive centre, RYA sailing centre and several sports courts – if you are keen to entertain or keep active, you will certainly not struggle to occupy your time.
