Banyan Tree Group has introduced its first flagship property in Europe, Angsana Corfu Resort & Spa in Greece’s Ionian Islands.
Set on a hilltop estate in Corfu’s Akra Punta Bay, near Benitses Village, the new luxury resort debuts with a collection of 159 guest rooms, suites and 37 one to four-bedroom pool villas. Each pool villa evokes the feeling of an authentic, and private Corfu home with outdoor pavilions, terracotta rooftops and private pools.
Boasting unparalleled views of the picturesque turquoise waters of the Benitses Bay, Angsana Corfu offers a Mediterranean sanctuary for travellers with grounds that are surrounded by lush green, mountainous landscapes, Mediterranean gardens and olive tree groves.
The resort sits in close vicinity to the historic Achilleion Palace, once quarters to the famed Empress Sisi of Austria, the exotic Paxi and Antipaxi islets and a seven-mile drive away from the old town of Corfu, a UNESCO World Heritage site with its historic Old and New fortress.
“After a challenging year for the travel industry, we are grateful and excited for the grand opening of the first resort by Banyan Tree Group in Europe, with the addition of Angsana Corfu,” said Sergio Serra, AVP and Regional Director of Sales & Marketing for The Americas, Europe, Middle East & Africa at Banyan Tree Group.
“Corfu in the Ionian Islands is an ideal destination for us to open our newest sanctuary, given its onus on environmentalism, wellness and an incredibly vibrant local culture.”
Angsana Corfu Resort & Spa features 10 food and beverage venues, including four signature restaurants and seven bars, the Angsana Spa, a 25m indoor pool area and Juice bar, along with Banyan Tree’s signature Rangers’ Club, a dedicated space for kids.
Guests also have the ability to book a range of day trip excursions to local sites on the island including the Achilleion Palace, Korission Lake’s unspoiled, protected land, The Governor’s Olive Oil Press, Bioporos Organic Farm and Nikolaos Mantzaros Museum of Music.
