  • About this holiday

    The five star Anassa in Polis is highly recommended for guests looking for a lengthy, relaxing holiday beside the crystal clear waters of Cyprus. High standards of luxury and an ambience of sophistication pervades in all the public spaces and the radiant bedrooms. The multi-level pools, numerous restaurants and bars, and vast building and gardens styled like a traditional white-washed village, create a stunning oasis on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea.
    After her visit to the Anassa, one of our European travel specialists said that she wouldn't hesitate to recommended it to couples and families looking for a few days of real luxury and relaxation. She described the grounds as very beautiful and was continually impressed by the quality of the facilities and standard of the staff.

    Our opinion

    The five star Anassa in Polis is of world-class standards, and continues to be one of our most popular European hotels.

    Hotel description

    The majestic five star Anassa hotel hugs the hillside above one of Cyprus’ charming golden beaches. The palatial façade overlooks the celebrated Baths of Aphrodite, and mimics the style of a classical Greek village, with white-washed villas and louvered shutters. The hotel enjoys a stunning location on the unspoilt northwest coast of the island, and offers elegant and refined spaces in which to relax. Most of the guestrooms are located within the main hotel building, though there are also individual residences dotted around the perfectly landscaped gardens. The interior decoration in the rooms is simple and welcoming, with a palette of neutral colours that is brought to life by the vibrant blues of the sea and the sky outside the windows. High, white wooden ceilings ensure the rooms remain light and airy, and balconies provide stunning locations in which to enjoy breakfast. Cool marble and lightwood floors, accompanied by white sofas and bed linens, complete the feeling of luxury. The indulgent Thalasso Spa provides a serene, relaxing experience, with a menu of health and beauty treatments that draws on the restorative qualities of the minerals found naturally in saltwater. The four restaurants serve an eclectic mix of local and international cuisine, all made with fresh produce, and the dining rooms continue the classical feel, one with arched ceilings, and one with ornate iron chandeliers. There is also the option to dine on the terrace, amidst the fantastic views across fields of pink flowers, with the rocky inland landscape in the distance on one side, and the gently lapping sea on the other. The freshness of the food offsets the warmth of the sunshine, and is always presented with gourmet flair. The Anassa is perfect for long, relaxing, beach- and poolside holidays, and comes highly recommended as a property of supreme luxury.
