An elegant whitewashed retreat perched over the sparkling Mediterranean, Anassa is the Queen of Cypriot luxury hotels. From the gardens of bougainvillea, rosemary bushes and olive trees that gently slope down to the secluded beach, to the entry atrium complete with rippling water features and neo-classical details, the surroundings are seriously luxe and the facilities are no less impressive.
Like sister hotels Almyra and Annabelle, Anassa is a family-friendly resort with a wide range of dining choices and activities. And there's a well-regarded kid's club that takes babies from 4 months old.
We were founded forty years ago by my father, the late Alecos Michaelides. Each of our three hotels is much-loved and entirely distinctive in their own way - Anassa is truly iconic, lavish in its designs and its facilities. We want our guests to come back again and again, and you can be sure of stunning views, sunshine, and real Cypriot hospitality - especially at the authentic Pelagos taverna, where you definitely shouldn’t miss the grilled octopus souvlaki.

Dine in style and savour seasonal and regional dishes across four restaurants and bars. Basiliko is the romantic option: candlelit and intimate, it serves Asian dishes with flashes of European, including Alaskan king crab with marinated watermelon, daikon and kalamansi lime, and seared scallop sashimi with miso, jalapeno and Iberico ham. Helios is a fine dining choice, with a sea-view terrace and the sound of music from a pianist and harpist. French-Mediterranean fare is on the menu, with plates such as baked artichoke with puff pastry, butternut squash, black truffles, and wild mushrooms or assiette of lamb with wild morel mushrooms, sweet garlic and minted peas. Amphora is more casual: think buffets breakfasts, à la carte selections, and themed dinners. And Pelagos is a shaded outdoor taverna serving seafood, mezze, salads, and pastas.
Note: the restaurants are open on rotation.
Once a week in the village square a traditional celebration is hosted, giving guests a taste of authentic Cypriot life with live music, folk dancing and a buffet.
There are four bars to choose from dotted around the hotel: formal or relaxed, inside or out, a glass of something chilled will taste delicious whichever setting you choose.
The 166 low-rise bedrooms feature Joelle Pleot-designed décor inspired by the quintessential Mediterranean style of Cyprus; calming interiors are complemented by the colourful backdrops of the gardens and green hills of Neo Chorio. Some of the rooms and suites have sea views, others look out to the gardens; many are interconnecting, making them perfect for families.
Unwind in the garden, where there are plenty of shaded spots that are perfect for kicking back with a good book. And the hotel’s four pools are the perfect place to refresh: an indoor adult-only, two outdoor multi-level options, and the mosaic pool.
For pampering, look no further than on-site Thalassa spa. Focusing on the natural benefits of seawater, it features saltwater jets, seaweed scrubs, algae body wraps and many more bespoke treatments that use of seawater pumped from nearby Chrysochou Bay.
Exploring the island should also be considered: enjoy a sailing-boat excursion to the famous Blue Lagoon, take a cultural trip to Choirokoitia, a UNESCO-listed archaeological wonder, or drive south to Paphos. Sporty types can try water-skiing, diving, tennis, hiking, quad biking and squash.
Free parking is available.
