Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts Debuts First European Property in Greece

Banyan Tree Hotels, the luxury Asian hospitality brand, has just landed in Europe for the first time with their new property Angsana Corfu, opening July 10, 2019.

Located on the lush island of Corfu and surrounded by mountains, the resort features private pool villas, a fine dining restaurant led by Michelin-starred chef, a renowned spa and stunning views of the Ionian Sea. The cliff-edge property is just seven miles from Corfu’s international airport and eight miles from the city’s port, making it a convenient trip. When it opens, it will boast the largest entry-level room size, the largest infinity pool across the island, and the largest hotel spa in Corfu.

Accommodations

Home to 199 rooms, suites and private pool villas, guests will find a variety of accommodation options including Grand Rooms, Sea View Suites and Private Pool Villas (ranging from one-bedroom to a presidential four-bedroom pool villa).

Dining

Five restaurants and six lounges will feature cuisine from Pan Asian to authentic Greek dining. A fine dining restaurant by Michelin-starred Corfiot Italian chef Ettore Botrini will be the standout. Botrini opened his namesake restaurant in 2011 in Athens, which received a Michelin star in 2014.

Other options include Sofrito, featuring Corfu’s best cuisine; a Juice Bar; and a rooftop lounge bar where guests can dine under the stars. Angsana Corfu will also offer cooking classes with the culinary team and a series of unique destination dining experiences, including an incredible mountain picnic and a romantic, private beach dinner for two.

Spa

Keeping in line with Angsana’s worlwide properties, the spa will serve as the highlight of the resort. Sixteen treatment rooms, including single and double rooms, will feature Jet Pool facilities and five outdoor spa pavilions. The menu will include more than 50 spa treatments emphasizing the use of native flowers and fruits based on the use of aromatherapy, the therapeutic sense of touch and a mix of East and West techniques.

Activities

For those looking to explore, the island is one of the greenest and ideal for all types of activities including bird watching, hiking at Mount Pantokrator, swimming or snorkeling in the Canal D’Amour, kayaking, kite surfing, paragliding, jet skiing, horseback riding, golf and more. Angsana Corfu will also host onsite activities like olive oil tastings, and classes on how to make Greek ceramic art, bags from reusable sails, natural olive oil soap, and other local crafts.

Angsana Corfu will offer day tours around the island which include a cultural tour, a shop and dine tour and customizable excursions. The resort’s Sense of the Sea private speedboat will be available to take guests out to explore the diverse marine ecosystem and coastal beauty of Corfu.
