Anassa’s Chapel and Village Square Host Easter Weekend Ceremonies
A Greek Orthodox priest will conduct services in Anassa’s Chapel and the adjoining Village Square; all guests are welcome. On Good Friday, view the Epitafios, a representation of Christ’s bier adorned with flowers (from 12:00). Later, the priest leads the sombre and colourful Procession of the Epitafios through the Village Square (19:00). Holy Saturday starts with a Holy Mass (8:00) celebrating the news of Christ’s resurrection: congregants remove shrouds from the icons and knock their chairs in resounding celebration. That evening, celebrants gather for the Lambradja, a bonfire where Judas is burned in effigy (22:00). Midnight Mass begins at 23:00 and culminates at midnight, when the lights are dramatically cut and restored to symbolise the resurrection; each congregant receives a lit candle to carry forth into the night. On Easter Sunday, the priest will celebrate Morning Mass (11:00). For a full schedule of Anassa’s Easter weekend events, see
Anassa’s Thalassa Spa Named Top Spa for 2017
The editors of Condé Nast Traveller have ranked Anassa’s Thalassa Spa as the Most Consistent High Performer in the world [link
]. In compiling the 2017 Spa Guide, the magazine reviewed the most exceptional places in the world, selecting only fifty for inclusion and giving special recognition to the top eight. Editors highlighted the dedicated and long-serving staff and a beautiful facility ‘flooded with sunlight and fresh air’ as major contributors to the consistently excellent spa experience at Anassa. Drawing on the restorative benefits of the maritime climate, seawater, and marine derivatives, Thalassa Spa focuses on individual, tailor-made treatments and entirely natural products. Condé Nast Traveller also praises the consistently high level of service at Anassa, noting that the rooms are ‘reliably lovely’ and the food ‘reliably delicious.’ ‘The healing bubble doesn’t burst when you emerge’ from the spa, say the editors, but continues to envelop you throughout your stay. This recognition follows three Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Awards in 2016: No. 3 ‘Best Overseas Hotel in Europe, Turkey, & Russia,’ No. 27 ‘The World’s Top 100,’ and No. 5 ‘Best Overseas Spa.’Anassa is also included on the magazine’s Gold List for 2017.
ANASSA PRAISED AGAIN BY CONDÉ NAST TRAVELLER
THE GOLD LIST 2017
Anassa, one of Europe’s most iconic hotels, has been awarded another notable accolade by Condé Nast Traveller. Only months after being voted as the third best overseas holiday hotel in Europe, Turkey & Russia and ranking at number 27 in the ‘World’s Top 100’ category in the Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Awards 2016, the hotel has also been included in the magazine’s prestigious Gold List 2017.
Compiled annually, The Gold List comprises ‘all-time favourite hotels, restaurants, cocktail bars and beach clubs’. This year there are only 20 hotels included within the list - those that Condé Traveller rates as being both ‘exceptional and classic.' Editor Melinda Stevens has described this year’s list as ‘Gold as in brilliant. Gold as in you’d do it all again tomorrow’.
Andy Adamos Art Exhibited in Anassa’s Rotunda
A selection of works by celebrated twentieth-century Cypriot artist Andy Adamos is on display through 31 October. Showcasing sculptures in wood and metal, the exhibit also features wooden panels, which the artist assembled, carved, and painted to create vibrant pictures. Born in Cyprus, Adamos spent most of the 1960s and 1970s in South Africa, where he was influenced by modernist sculptors and African wood carvers. In 1972, Adamos founded a school of sculpture in Famagusta, but he and his family were forced to flee during the Turkish invasion of 1974, leaving many of his works behind. Due to the efforts of Turkish-Cypriot sculptor Baki Bogac, these works were preserved and returned to the family in 1993.
Sergis Hadjiadamos, curator and son of the artist, will present several gallery talks. Giclée prints of the wooden panels are on display in Armonia Bar and are available for purchase, as is a book covering the artist’s life and work.
Pafos - European Capital of Culture in 2017
The district of Pafos is gearing up for 2017, when over 300 artistic events mark its status as a European Capital of Culture—an honor conferred by the European Union. The theme is the Open Air Factory, which emphasizes the long tradition in Cyprus of enacting culture outdoors as well as a new openness to connecting spaces and people here. Highlights include “Terra Mediterranea,” an exhibition of artists from Cyprus, Israel, and Germany examining the Mediterranean as a connective tissue in European culture; “The Truth about Venus,” a new musical performed in an empty pool; and a multilingual performance of Euripides’s “Trojan Women” by actors from divided cities (Nicosia, Mostar, Jerusalem). Near Anassa you’ll find the Eco Art project, where eight artists create installations and performances inspired by the Akamas wilderness. Thanos Hotels and Resorts is an Official Gold Sponsor for Pafos 2017. Tickets are available through Guest Services.
