Anassa, Cyprus

As you well know, we’re always on the lookout for the hottest, chicest hotels the world over. With Anassa, on the sleepy, sun-kissed island of Cyprus, we’ve found a hotel that ticks all the boxes. Luxury, location, charm and beauty combine with seamless ease…so much so that we just couldn’t keep this little piece of magic to ourselves.


Under the year-round Mediterranean sun, Anassa’s classically Cypriot low-rise buildings and intimate lush gardens dot the tranquil hillside, rolling down to the azure blues of the Mediterranean Sea. Arranged around a traditional-style village square, complete with sprawling and colourful mosaics, this hotel provides all the best bits of secluded village life. Add in a beach of caramel coloured sands, five-star dining and a sumptuous spa, as well as the sheer beauty of the natural surroundings, and you’ll find Anassa to be the Mediterranean paradise you’ve been searching for.

Your room

When we think of Hellenic indulgence, we picture white-washed buildings with traditional terracotta roofs, balconies and terraces that open out onto the sprawling blues of the Mediterranean, and views only interrupted by the swaying greens of lush natural gardens. And guess what? Anassa’s 175 rooms and suites provide exactly that. What’s more, your room is styled with luxury fit for a Greek god, with marble floors, louvered doors, and if you’re splashing out on a suite, private plunge pools and whirlpools on sea-facing terraces.

All its inimitable qualities combine to make Anassa a place you’ll never want to leave.
