Historical Traveler Reviews Anassa Hotel Latchi
A great hotel
The Anassa must be the best hotel in Cyprus and it is certainly streets ahead of its sister hotel the Annabelle in Paphos. The view from the main terrace is sensational. The studio rooms are lovely. You wake up each day to a breathtaking view of the ocean. The buffet meals in the main restaurant are well-prepared and varied and there is a good choice of other restaurants. The Spa and gym facilities are good and were underused when we were there. The beach is not the best in the world as the sand is gritty rather than soft but it is OK and the sea is warm and clear. It is worth hiring a car to get out and about if you stay for longer than a few days. Service is inobtrusive but excellent. There is very little I would want to change about this hotel but when I did make a few suggestions on the guest questionnaire (DVD players in room, better air-con in the corridors) the management wrote me a very nice letter acknowledging my suggestions which typifies the valued way in which guests are treated.
Beautiful view from our room
Just got back from a week at Anassa. We booked a studio with sea view room and now I realise they were the best rooms to have for the money. There were other options with private plunge pool that we considered but having seen them from our balcony, the vast majority are overlooked and not so private and not worth the money. Our room had a balcony overlooking the sea and headland to the west. The food was great, with 3 restaurants and a rotating themed buffet in the main restaurant. The only niggle was that it was very remote (you had to get a taxi to the nearest shop) and the in-hotel shop was more about clothes than basics you may need. The beach & weather was great, although the 'sand' was more like gravel and not so nice underfoot, but now I'm nitpicking! Loved it. Hope to return.
I booked a week's holiday in the Anassa. I had not been to Cyprus before and was a little hesitant by some of the laddish hype. Thankfully the place was amazing. I had a junior suite with a private pool. The room was beautifully appointed, very spacious and luxurious. The terrace was lovely with a good sized pool and fantastic views. The hotel itself is very beautiful and serene. Facilities are great and staff very attentive. The only oddity of note was the bar, which seemed to sit somewhat awkwardly with the rest of the decor and chic appearance of the hotel. With regard to the food, I found it to be reasonably pricey for what it was, however, the staff and the ambiance of the restaurants made up somewhat for its shortfall. If you are considering going to the Anassa, be aware that the location of rooms is important. For example, some Junior suites had great views and privacy whilst others were located around the pool and were more noisy.
overworked and stressed we booked for a week at the anassa during september. the weather was perfect, the hotel was fabulous, the room, the service, the food wonderful. We had a personal guided tour by the owner who just happened to be walking behind us as we looked out from a window and wondered where the spa was situated. what a wonderful man, so enthusiastic about his work and his vision. He told us how he sailed around the island looking for the perfect setting for his perfect hotel, he took time to spend around 30 minutes with us explaining how he acheived his dream of creating this beautiful hotel in such serene surroundings. we had a wonderful holiday and returned home feeling relaxed and ready to face the winter months, knowing that one day we would return to this paradise.
Very frindly saff
Very friendly staff ,remote from any nice village so nothing to do outside hotel and very expensive restaurant.
Gorgeous hotel, great for kids
I visited Cyprus and stayed at the Anassa hotel with my husband and our two small children. We loved it!! We'd go back! The weather was perfect, it was late April we when were there. You must book a room with a sea view. Request a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor. The room decor is very minimal, but nice. We had a family studio which was very large and more than enough room for two cots!! The beach is pebbly, so be sure to bring beach shoes for everyone. We also booked a wonderful babysitter everynight named Julia. Highly recommended. Also try out the fish restaurants in Latchi on the beach!
This resort is a beautiful one... Wonderful location and scenery, but...
- unattentive reception staff
- noisy rooms: thin walls, thin doors = no privacy
- overworked restaurant staff, therefore sometimes not very polite
- overpriced in general, even if the food quality was good.
We'll never go back, unless they completely re-do the whole building...
Simply the best
The Anassa (5*), Polis, Cyprus
The Anassa is just superb. From the moment you enter the hotel you are aware of the vast attention to detail that must rank this hotel one of the best in the world. Our favourite hotel to date has been the Datai in Langkawi (and people who have stayed there will know exactly what I mean) - and this hotel rivals it - it is really that good.
The accomodation, the pools, the spa, the food and wines, and particularly the impeccable service place the Anassa head and shoulders above any other esablishment on the island; it rivals the very best anywhere around the Mediterranean.
Amazing Med Resort
Cyprus is a great island, with much history, friendly people and delicious food. The Anassa is one of the best resorts in the Med. Stunning views, fantastic service and beautiful rooms. We were there for our honeymoon and can't wait to get back there one day.
This hotel is fantastic. The setting, the rooms, the food and the service, first class. I have stayed at a number of top end hotels before, and this one s up there with them. The staff have to be some of the most friendly I have ever met.
it isn't the cheapest, far from it, but we worth it. The only slight downfall may be that there were a lot of unsupervised children running around.

Paphos itself has proved to be something of a pleasant surprise. I can imagine that at the height of the tourist season it has, shall we say, a mixed clientele but at this time of the year it is mostly a destination for amiable pensioners (so obviously I fit in well). It also has a lovely harbour, an attractive locals-dominated old town and a fine array of archeological sights, including the Mediterranean's best preserved Roman mosaics, which ...
I have had so many strolls, spent hours of swimming and endless time watching the sea at this spot that I know so well every angle of the cove.
While writing this, I have all these sounds real in my ears and honestly it is right here that I wish to start or finish my summer holidays next ...
... is slippery and the path gets quite narrow.
We go on and on, the doggie follows and I can't stop taking pictures throughout the way until we reach the Baths of Aphrodite.
We cover the Circular Trail in 6 instead of 4 hours only because there was no need to hurry back to the hotel earlier.
We do make a stop at the Baths of Aphrodite for photos and cool off ...
... spend endless hours in the water.
Friends who know me well, do know that I normally swim the least 3 to 4 hours sometimes more, without getting out of the water not for a second.
This day however I noticed some storm clouds looming on the horizon approaching little by little but the water was cool and nice and I thought to get out only with ...
... my room. The property is extremely popular with repeaters.
LOCATION: With less than 2 km from the Baths of Aphrodite it is in a very convenient location especially if you come here by local bus. I caught the bus from Paphos to Polis (#645) and then the corresponding mini bus for Latchi to the Baths of Aphrodite (#622) and I was dropped off outside the hotel. In fact that morning I left from Larnaca to Limassol at 7:30 and then to Paphos. ...
