It is a beautiful and very peaceful place in the nature. The hotel itself used to be monastery so rooms are quite small as monk cells. As someone noticed - no proper check in. And though service in the reception and spa and restaurants is good, no one takes you to your room and you even have to carry your own luggage sometimes to the second floor. That's why it's better you go for a short break without full luggage :)
As the prices are quite high and per room and for spa you expect a wow effect. So its nothing like that. Good location, nice service, nice food in the restaurant, but… cant give 5 stars rating.
Some things doesn’t cost and could give extra value to the room, lets say – coffee and tea in the room. Of course you can order room service, but its not just same as to wake up early and have your own made coffee in the balcony.
Or little shampoo and shower gel bottles. Its "healing spa" as stated and what you find in the bath is cheap "made in china, bottled in Cyprus" cosmetics like in cheap agia napa hotels.
Spa is definitely overpriced. Though spa girls are really nice and qualified. Just lets say spa manicure cost 60 eur and its not done more spa than the usual one I do for 25 eur elsewhere. Now most of the places do scrub and massage. So its just not worth paying extra 30 eur. Massages good, but again – not "wow!".
Prices are high mostly because of the surroundings. It’s a hotel which you cant reach without a car and no bars and restaurants around. Nearest "life" walking on foot is 45 min one way (coming back you need to do some uphill :) ) And its an advantage for busy city people.
Overall it was a good experience. Quite and calm.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to a dream – a dream that unfolded in 1983. We cordially invite you to steep yourself within a vision that will bring relaxation, health, well-being and no little luxury. In the spring of 2009 Ayii Anargyri Spa resort opened its doors and present the world with a sublime experience. Set in a valley of mature trees, the resort offers a unique retreat, a place of profound calm and the opportunity to enjoy the health-giving waters which have benefited visitors for so many years. This boutique hotel with accommodation for 150 guests in Suites or Classic rooms, has dedicated spa facilities in the grounds, a generous swimming pool and conference facilities for 50 people. Cuisine from locally grown produce will reveal all that is best in traditional Cypriot fare – food that is garden fresh, nutritious, flavorsome. The hotel provides the means to benefit from the time-tested remedies of the mineral rich waters which flow here – but there is so much more. An abundance of scenic attractions will delight any nature lover. Also outdoor pursuits like cycling, walking and bird watching are just a few other possibilities to make your stay a tonic for body and mind. History of healing: The Spa was first formally opened in 1649 by two brothers, Cosmas and Damianos. Their generosity in offering treatment often without thought of reward gave rise to the name Anargyri – without silver. They became known and loved locally for their selfless acts and affectionately known as saints. In the 19th century the waters were properly analyzed and did indeed contain health-giving minerals. Now the new luxury spa will offer a variety of treatment rooms and therapies many involving the sulphur water which rises naturally nearby in this tranquil setting. Ayii Anargyri has something unique. From the Cyprus hillside, a mineral-rich spring carries the soothing waters renowned for generations for their healing qualities. This remarkable stream has been channeled to the new spa where it is combined in numerous treatments now advanced by modern science. The waters are beneficial for joint or muscle discomfort and some circulatory problems. The therapies are natural and non invasive. ... more less
