Anassa 

A perfect Mediterranean retreat

Understated luxury and sheer elegance within a resort of palatial yet simple Cypriot style

Attentive and personalised service, a breathtaking setting and low-key luxury – the world-renowned Anassa has it all and more. Exuding the sleepy charm of a traditional Byzantine village, the resort's collection of classically styled low-rise buildings are set around a village square which has views out over the long sandy beach and the Mediterranean Sea. One of our favourite European spots for either a romantic retreat or a luxury holiday, there is no shortage of facilities, activities and perhaps more importantly, secluded spots to escape to. The Roman-style spa is an award-winning retreat with an indoor pool, thalassotherapy pools and a range of treatments using 100% organic products and seawater. Your children are well catered for here with clubs for youngsters from four months to 12 years.

Why we love Anassa

  • You won’t want to tear yourself away from the award-winning spa with its elegant suite of thalassotherapy pools

  • It’s in eight acres of gardens on a secluded beach flanked by stone breakwaters that create a calm, wave-free swimming zone

  • The food is as fresh, wholesome and delicious in the two family-friendly eateries as it is in the romantic adults-only venue

  • Children can enjoy their own adventures at the kids’ club, from treasure hunts to zoo visits, with evening events for over eights

Anassa's 'barbecue under the stars' will bring the whole family together over Cypriot music, grilled meats and fresh seafood. For a taste of local life, gather your family around the resort’s Byzantine chapel and village square for the weekly Cypriot village fair. Enjoy superb food, live music and folk dancing. Little ones will love the Paphos Aphrodite Waterpark, which is less than an hour from Anassa, and offers slides, a lazy river and a wave pool.
