    Our opinion

    The Anassa Hotel is the ultimate pampering retreat in effortlessly elegant surroundings.

    Hotel description

    The palatial and majestic Anassa stands overlooking the celebrated Baths of Aphrodite, hugging the hillside above a charming beach. The hotel, which is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World group, enjoys a stunning rural location on the unspoilt north-west coast of the island and offers a fine array of health and beauty treatments in the stunning Thalassa Spa. Drawing on the restorative and rejuvenating qualities of the minerals present in natural seawater, the Anassa spa offers a variety of revitalising body treatments that are tuned to your individual requirements. At the end of a day’s treatments, the four restaurants welcome you with an eclectic mix of local and international dishes. The open-air terrace of the Amphora restaurant offers casual dining and sea views whilst the Helios, Anassa’s main dining room, offers a vast choice from either the à la carte or table d’hôte menus. For a romantic treat, the Basiliko serves a fusion of Asian and Mediterranean cuisine by candle-light. If you prefer snacks, the Pelagos offers light meals, ice creams and thirst quenching cocktails by one of the hotel’s three swimming pools. Many of the ingredients are organically grown at the hotel’s own farm and fresh fish are brought daily by the fishermen of Latchi. The architecture of the Anassa hotel has been designed to mimic a classical Greek village with its whitewashed villas and louvred shutters. A wide range of accommodation is on offer, located either in the main building or in one of the individual residences that are dotted around the immaculately landscaped gardens. For ultimate privacy and comfort, the garden studio suites are set amongst the fragrant plants of the hotel’s gardens and have spacious interiors decorated in pastel shades. Whichever room type you choose, you will benefit from luxury of your own private balcony or terrace from which to enjoy breath-taking views over the Mediterranean Sea.

    Other information

    The Thalassa Spa’s concept is based on a holistic approach to wellbeing and the result is an entirely newly-designed spa, offering The Organic Pharmacy’s 100% natural product line, which complements an expanded Thalassa programme. This includes holistic and therapeutic lifestyle consulting, acupuncture, spa cuisine and natural treatments using local produce. An experiential spa, it embraces all aspects of wellbeing and offers guests the option of indulging in a one-off treatment, or immersing themselves in 4-10 day retreats or detoxifying programmes. The aim is to provide guests with tailored therapies to suit individual needs as well as to educate on lifestyle techniques that can be worked into their daily lives. This Roman-style thalassotherapy health spa is a retreat in the truest sense. Its light, tranquil space is lavishly equipped with saunas, steam baths, a seawater exercise pool, squash court and fitness room, and at its heart is a stunning heated indoor swimming pool that is flanked by custom-designed lounge furniture. Its philosophy embraces the restorative and rejuvenating effect of natural sea water and the spa offers a wide range of revitalising body and beauty treatments along this theme. For example, thalassotherapy, algae wraps, massages, reflexology, and aromatherapy, as well as all the standard beauty treatments.

    Osea Sea of Life Facial: Skin-specific cleansing and a custom treatment mask are combined with bio-dynamic Cranialfacial Therapy. As your body inhales and exhales in a tide-like rhythm, face, jaw and neck tensions are released. A sense of floating, deep relaxation and a sense of heightened well-being makes this an unforgettable experience. Drift away with a luxurious neck and shoulder, hands and feet massage. Glow from the inside out!

    The Organic Pharmacy Detox Body Ritual: This wonderful ritual begins with a full body exfoliation using Spirulina, known for its powerful detoxifying and remineralising properties, blended with toning lemon and stimulating eucalyptus.
