This shiny new hotel is creating a stir on Corfu's luxury hotel scene.
Opening in 2020, Angsana Corfu is the brainchild of luxury hotel brand Banyan Tree. A contemporary spin on Greek cubist architecture, the hotel is poised on a cliff edge, plunging 100ft to the sparkling sea below. The best point to soak up these views is the rooftop terrace bar, with its scattering of low-slung white sofas. Just below, an oval infinity pool disappears into the horizon.
This is one for globetrotting gourmands: five restaurants specialise in everything from Greek favourites to Spanish tapas. But the standout is Botrini’s, a fine-dining restaurant helmed by Michelin-star chef Ettore Botrini, who reimagines Mediterranean classics with an innovative twist. You can also embark on epicurean experiences such as a mountain picnic or a toes-in-the-sand dinner, illuminated by flickering torches.
It’s not just a foodie destination either: spa-goers will revel in the modern wellness centre, with its 50-plus treatments, indoor and outdoor pools, and open-sided yoga deck. Book a massage in one of the al fresco spa pavilions to feel a sea-salt breeze drift across your shoulders.
Rooms and suites could be plucked from an interiors magazine, with emerald-green throws, slatted-wood headboards and eclectic wall art. Marble bathrooms and super comfortable beds come as standard, along with thoughtful touches like essential oils and burners. Pick a Hill View Grand Room for a private balcony overlooking the countryside, or a super-spacious Angsana Sea View Suite for a separate living room. Large groups should opt for the Four-Bedroom Executive Villa to take advantage of an infinity pool, and freestanding bath tubs in the en suites.
