Angsana Resort & Spa: Greek and Asian 5-star Hospitality on Corfu
The Angsana Corfu Resort & Spa, a luxurious family-friendly beach resort situated on the Greek island of Corfu, is scheduled to open its doors for the 2023 season on March 1.
Located on a lush green hilltop overlooking the turquoise waters of the Ionian sea, the resort is a Mediterranean sanctuary that opened in Greece in 2021, marking the entrance of the Banyan Tree Singaporean multinational hospitality brand to the European market.
Angsana Corfu Resort and Spa offers a unique blend of Greek and Asian hospitality, providing a “home away from home feeling” with a deep sense of belonging.
The resort boasts a close vicinity to the exotic Paxoi and Antipaxoi islets and is situated close to the world-renowned Achilleion Palace, once home to Empress Sissi of Austria, enriching its surroundings with echoes of a royal era.
Angsana Corfu’s strategic position makes it an excellent starting point for exploring Corfiot must-see spots like beautiful sandy beaches, historical sites and activities that Corfu has to offer. Located just 13 km south of Corfu town, a UNESCO World Heritage site with its imposing Old Fortress, the resort provides an experience of local heritage and Greek hospitality.
The resort comprises 159 contemporary rooms and suites, plus 37 luxury villa homes built in the style of local architecture, laid out across the hilltop estate.
Surrounded by a landscape of exquisite beauty with Mediterranean gardens and olive tree groves, the estate overlooks the picturesque Benitses Bay, presenting far-reaching views of the Ionian Sea and the countryside.
Contemporary and chic, the accommodation is designed to reflect the Angsana brand luxury aesthetics featuring a wide range of amenities like a king-size bed or twin beds, cotton bed linen, in-room safe, iron and ironing board and laundry, daily turn-down and daily maid services, among other.
Its private balconies equipped with a table and chairs offer magnificent views of the sea or hillside.
A global culinary adventure
Angsana Corfu places gastronomy pleasures high on its priority list. The resort offers a unique palette of vibrant flavors and taste combinations sourced from around the world.
Its chefs serve up a universe of options, from fusion Asian cuisine and sushi bites to Greek cuisine with local Corfiot delicacies and tasty international favorite dishes.
The resort features a variety of restaurants and dining options, including Koh, a trendy version of an Asian fusion of fresh and zesty cuisine; Ruen Romsai, the main restaurant serving breakfast with local and international favorites; and Sofrito, the resorts’ signature sophisticated Greek taverna serving fresh fish and hearty Corfiot dishes.
Angsana’s Vertigo Sky Bar (opening on June 1) is the highest rooftop lounge in Corfu with 360° views of the coast and landscape, and it’s an adults-only venue.
Award-winning spa and wellness center
Angsana Corfu is a true oasis for the body and soul.
Its award-winning Angsana Spa emphasizes the use of natural ingredients such as fruits and flowers, offering a sense of touch with fusion techniques where East meets West.
The spa is located within a large, luxurious space of 11 treatment rooms, 2 rain mist suites, and an indoor pool area.
It also houses an elevated yoga deck, a 25m heated indoor pool, and a state-of-the-art Health Club equipped with the latest technology.
Where Adventure and Business Meet
For young visitors, Angsana Corfu provides the Rangers’ Kids Club, a special space dedicated for 4–11-year-olds, sharing the most exciting all-day adventures. The club comes complete with its own sandbox, all-day games, and arts and crafts, led by an expert team of professional educators.
The resort’s facilities also include a conference hall for up to 200 delegates, indoor and outdoor venues for up to 300 people, and audio-visual equipment.
Furthermore, the resort curates a series of activities which range from local folk dance workshops, private film-screenings, and culinary demonstrations during the summer to winter group external activities like olive oil farm tour and tasting, horse back riding and candle making workshops, among others.
The Banyan Tree Group, or Banyan Tree Holdings Limited, mother company to the Angsana brand, was founded when Singaporean businessman Ho Kwon Ping and his entrepreneur and activist wife Claire Chiang decided to buy land on the western coast of Phuket to create a resort.
Following a vast regeneration program implemented in the area, which initially proved to be an abandoned and too polluted tin mine, the first hotel of the brand was launched in 1994.
As of 2021, the company operates 55 resorts and hotels and also manages 63 spas, 64 retail galleries, and three championship golf courses in 23 countries across the globe.
