Our Digital Manager Sarah spent Easter in Cyprus
I escaped the snow and freezing conditions in the UK last week for a delightful and much needed break to Scott Dunn favorites Anassa and Almyra on the sunny island of Cyprus. Easter is a lovely time to visit Cyprus with wildflowers in abundance, as evidenced by pics below.

Scott Dunn has partnered with Thanos Hotels to run exciting new Explorers children’s clubs at both Anassa and Almyra. The clubs are open from Easter to October half term and offer a fun-filled days of on and off-site activities tailored around the age of your child. I timed my visit well to coincide with the first week of operation of the new Explorers children’s clubs. With a fresh fun feel, tempting beanbags and toys and activities aplenty, they are looking great and will be an amazing base the childcare program.
These hotels aren’t just fantastic for younger family members – there is a lot to attract adult guests too. The restaurants and service are superb. I enjoyed a very memorable fillet of beef at Anassa’s Helios fine dining restaurant, it was one of the best steaks I have ever had. A terrace with a view and a fabulous spread of food to suit every taste – even breakfast feels like a bit of an occasion Thanos style.
I was most pleasantly surprised by Cypriot wine. I often approach the local wine with a degree of caution having been burnt in the past, but all those I sampled at both Anassa and Almyra were delicious. I was particularly taken with Maratheftiko, an ancient indigenious grape variety that was rediscovered in the 1980s. Don’t miss the Maratheftiko from the Kolios Winery on the wine list at the Almyra if you are a red wine enthusiast!
