Mediterranean Magic: Two Destinations, One Easy Trip
A combined Cypriot-Greek vacation is a Mediterranean match made in heaven, a natural and easeful pairing that lets you explore the very best of both worlds and histories while staying in idyllic properties that lift the experience beyond the extraordinary.
Poised to book your Cypriot retreat to Anassa? Why not also reserve a stay on the nearby Greek island of Mykonos, where you can be equally spoiled with the same level of exemplary Thanos Hotels service, savour effortless style that invites soulful connection, and be perfectly based for colourful local immersions? Amyth of Mykonos, the Thanos property on the iconic Greek island, has skilfully elevated quiet luxe resort living to an entirely new level, even on an island renowned for its fantastic accommodation offerings.
Paphos to Mykonos: A Seamless Connection
Paphos, the home of Anassa, is just a 70-minute direct flight from Mykonos by plane, making a visit to both a straightforward combination for a summer vacation to remember, whether travelling solo, as a couple, with friends or family. Direct flights depart three times a week from May to October, allowing great flexibility in your itinerary.
Anassa: Serenity By the Sea
Perhaps begin at Anassa, though you could just as easily head to Amyth of Mykonos first. At Anassa, you’ll take time to unwind from your busy, fast-paced life at home. This regal oceanside haven will enchant with its secluded beach, tempting spa, and intuitive Cypriot service. Indulge in experiences that help bring you closer to the essence of Cyprus: a pottery session with a professional potter; a wine tasting session at Anassa’s well-stocked wine cellar; or head further afield for a visit to a donkey farm and a rustic picnic. From Anassa, our staff can then seamlessly handle your transfers to deliver you to an entirely new corner of the world waiting to offer its profound pleasures.
The Magic of Mykonos
A part of the Cyclades island grouping —themselves a part of the Aegean Archipelago — Mykonos has long lured A-list celebrities with its thrilling parties, proximity to amazing archaeological sites, whitewashed architecture, pretty windmills and bountiful food. Amyth of Mykonos is stunningly positioned overlooking the sparkling waters of the bay of Mykonos Town, itself just a 15-minute drive from the airport.
In Mykonos Town, whitewashed pedestrian lanes — reputed to be so entangled as to confuse marauding pirates centuries ago — lead to picture-perfect churches and pots of lavender and oregano positioned on bright blue, red or green windowsills. Nearby, the enchanting quarter of Little Venice boasts old houses defiantly towering over the sea. Further afield, windmills from ancient times have been preserved and add their own country charm; then there are dozens of stunning beaches, ranging from pumping party-packed stretches of sand to completely secluded patches best suited to afternoon siestas, all vying for attention.
The Allure of Amyth of Mykonos
Then there are all the pleasures contained within Amyth of Mykonos itself. It’s easy to while away an entire day without leaving — and many guests do just this, revelling in the rare intimacy of a 17-room property. The sense of place in this Greek hideaway is strong, so you’ll never for a moment second guess where you are, from the minute you open your eyes and spy the blues of the Aegean, to the last round of Ouzo in the evening at Amyth Kouzina, the hotel’s cosy home-from-home style restaurant that features Cycladic heritage touches, and prioritises local Mykonos flavours on its menu.
Take two days – or ideally take more: Amyth of Mykonos offers such a tempting array of exploratory activities that you’ll be inclined towards the more. Think horse-riding across a landscape of herb-covered stony hills dotted with the occasional pine or cypress tree; a tour of nearby Delos island, where ancient Greek ruins have been pristinely preserved; or a private island-hopping cruise that ends with a bottle of Champagne being popped as the sun goes down on another glorious Mykonos day.
