Anassa in Cyprus has all the ingredients for a dream beach holiday: dazzling blue waters and soft white sands, mouthwatering Mediterranean cuisine, and a pampering spa.

Designed like a traditional Cypriot village, it is one of Europe’s most iconic family-owned hotels and frequently finds itself in the world’s finest hotel lists. It’s not too difficult to see why.

Set on the edge of west Cyprus’ ruggedly beautiful Akamas Peninsula, the hotel has it all – a beautiful secluded beach, crystal-clear waters, rolling gardens of olive groves and bougainvillea, chic accommodations, exceptional cuisine and an extreme sense of belonging.

If that sounds like your idea of a dream getaway, read on. You and a friend could win a luxurious three-night stay in one of Anassa’s beautifully-designed whitewashed rooms. You’ll also be treated to indulgent daily breakfasts at Amphora, and one dinner at the hotel’s romantic candlelit cavern Basiliko, which serves Asian cuisine with a hint of Mediterranean flair.

To ensure you are thoroughly pampered during your visit, you will also enjoy a couple’s massage or two 60-minute individual massages at Anassa’s award-winning Thalassa Spa. Everything you want is here: thalassotherapy, a range of unique treatments by ILA, soothing massages, a sky-lit indoor pool, saltwater exercise pool, saunas, steam baths, a fitness room and squash courts.

As you get ready to leave with a heavy heart, we know you will be making a promise to yourself to return soon.

THE PRIZE: • A three-night stay for two people in one room at Anassa, including daily breakfast at Amphora • One dinner for two at Basiliko • One couple’s massage (or two 60-minute individual massages)
