Anassa Resort and Spa
Steeped in myth, Cyprus’ compelling history and culture are inimitable.
Inspired by the local building vernacular and rich culture, SB Architects interpreted the traditional Greek Cypriot vernacular for the design of the luxury Anassa Hotel and Spa in the small town of Polis.
The multi-award-winning hotel sits on a rise overlooking a pristine, sun-soaked stretch of sand and elegantly features whitewashed walls and low-pitched tile roofs. Effortlessly elegant, the hotel and surrounding luxury villas are tiered to gently cascade down to the azure waters of Chrysochou Bay.
The architecture is an elegant interpretation of the traditional Greek Cypriot vernacular, with whitewashed walls, low-pitched tile roofs, simple massing, and clean details. Particular attention was paid to the seamless integration of the architecture, landscape architecture, and interior design to create a powerfully unified experience for guests of this one-of-a-kind resort.
A crescent of 166 low-rise rooms, apartments, and residences designed in the style of a whitewashed Byzantine village cascades down through vivid, flower-filled gardens to a sandy beach.
