Guests of Annabelle are welcome to enjoy the facilities of sister property Anassa free of charge. Anassa is located on the northwest tip of the island and can be reached by car in less than one hour. Renowned for its lush gardens meandering down the hillside to the sea, Anassa boasts two outdoor pools as well as a generous beach with loungers and food and beverage service. Also on the beach is a water sports centre where you can organise all manner of excursions on the sea. Near the outdoor pools are two restaurants: Meltemi offers casual fare and a swim-up bar, while Pelagos features grilled seafood under a shaded canopy. A day trip to Anassa might include a visit to the Baths of Aphrodite (the grotto favoured by the goddess) and its adjoining botanical garden and nature reserve; you’ll find the baths just a few kilometres down the coastal road. Guests are also invited to enjoy the facilities of Thalassa Spa, named last year as the Best Overseas Hotel Spa by Condé Nast Traveller. The spa uses water pumped directly from the sea in its treatments. Enjoy the sauna, steam bath, or Roman-style indoor pool and indulge in a therapeutic treatment. Near reception, Kult boutique invites you to browse the latest fashions from Gucci, Prada, Jimmy Choo, and other leading designer brands. At day’s end, sit down for a relaxing beverage on the Armonia terrace and take in the sun setting behind the mountainous peninsula. Contact Guest Services to arrange your visit; any charges at Anassa can be applied directly to your room account.
