Once upon a time – the 1960s, to be precise – Cyprus was a nexus of Mediterranean glamour, with the likes of Burton and Taylor gambolling on its famously limpid shores. Politics saw the island’s golden moment end abruptly in 1974 (and it occasionally continues to muddy day-to-day life here); but time softens perspective, and this year it is helped along significantly by the return of a local icon to the scene. Anassa (www.anassa.com; from £276), the family-owned, thoroughly five-star resort at the entrance to Akamas, Cyprus’s still wild northwesternmost peninsula, has reopened. Its three-year top-to-toe renovation sees its old-world charm and proportions made beautifully modern, with the spare, chic turquoise-and-white rooms and suites joined by four full-service villas – and an outpost of gratifyingly edgy Cypriot concept boutique, Kult.
