The Island of Folegandros has a distinctive, rare and alluring beauty. The steep, barren mountains, scenic Chora, the secluded coves with the azure waters and the incredible Aegean view dazzle those who prefer to vacation away from the bustling crowds and to experience the wild, untouched side of the Cyclades.

 

Anemi Hotel, a 5 star beauty nestled in Karavostasi, the island’s small port, is a place I will never forget. Perfectly blended in the natural landscape, it astounds visitors with its architecture, unobstructed view and impeccable aesthetics. The ambiance of Anemi seamlessly reflects the island’s serenity.

 

The high quality services from the people who work at the Anemi Hotel cannot be compared to any other. They know what you need before you even ask for it. Their warm smile, their discreet and at the same time elegant attitude captivates you and makes you to want to stay longer. The ladies are dressed in beautiful aerie dresses in turquoise and they seem like ancient priestesses in a serene temple. The gentlemen, always at your services, are quietly there whenever needed. If you swing by the pool, a secret tip would be to try out the tasteful de-tox watermelon & mint juice that makes your mind travel away.

 

The facilities are luxurious without a doubt, with great interior design. The rooms and suites are designed to provide the feeling of a private, comfortable and cozy residence. Patios, pergolas and private swimming pools complement the landscape, while the modern approach in the design and the fresh decoration touches emphasize the architect’s philosophy. The view to the lush gardens is marvelous, while the Thierry Mugler bathroom toiletries freshen you up to be ready for a walk in Chora.

 

Singles, couples, families, friends can all have a wonderful time at Anemi Hotel in Folegandros. The Anemi wineyards give their grapes to produce high quality wine for everyone if the season is good. The astonishing views, the exquisite architecture, the interior design, the delicious food – the yummie pancakes for breakfast & the local homemade cheese pie with honey for dinner – will complete a holiday experience that no one will ever forget!

 

On the island you can visit the castle, the beautiful churches that pop up every where, the turquoise beaches by boat or foot, the small village Ano Meria & the Alikes, the place where salt water is being transformed into drinkable water. Last but not least, Chrysospilia, a unique natural monument, a remote cave, 30 meters above the sea level that has a significant speleological and archeological interest. However, the element that makes Chrysospilia a unique monument of the global cultural heritage is the large number of ancient names covering its walls and ceilings. The names date from the 4th century BC.

 

Anemi Hotel can be reached by fast sea-boats, or helicopters that are there at no time, coming from Athens or any other island around Folegandros that is equipped with these helpful aerial transportation means. There is always transfers to/from the port or the helipad. What is more, Santorini has an international airport and a quick daily fairy (approx. 40 min connection) with Folegandros.

 

And trust me, people always return to this hotel and to this island, year after year, bonding with the inhabitants and having an exquisite time! Now, it’s up to you to decide when to come …
