Summer in Europe is my favorite time of the year and this season we visited one of our bucket list destinations which has been on our list for quite some time: The green Greek island Corfu! We stayed in the brand new Angsana Corfu which only opened in June 2021 and this is my hotel review about this amazing resort:
LOCATION & TRANSFER
The Angsana Corfu is just a 20 mins car ride away from the airport in Corfu. A driver picked us up outside of the airport with the private hotel van of the Angsana! This means that you don’t have to care about getting a taxi and can be completely carefree starting from the second you landed!
ROOMS & VILLAS
We stayed in two different room categories during our stay. The Angsana Corfu has a wide selection starting from standard rooms, to suites with amazing views and lastly 37 villas with up to four bedrooms!
IONIAN SEA VIEW SUITE
This room category is perfect for couples who like to have a lot of space with a separate living area, a bedroom, spacious bathroom with a freestanding bathtub and rain shower. My personal highlight is the terrace from which you can overlook not only the main pool but also the Ionian Sea and nearby green mountain. Outside you’ll find a sitting area and a relaxing sun bed to enjoy the views and the sunshine.
TWO-BEDROOM VILLA WITH POOL
The villas are the perfect options for families or friends traveling together or simply for couples which like to have some extra privacy and luxury. From one-bedroom up to four-bedroom villas there is the perfect choice for all kind of travelers! They all have one thing in common: A big private pool and a sunny terrace overlooking the sea.
While the main building with the rooms and suites is very modern the villas are constructed in a traditional European style which is very beautiful and reminded us of a finca. Of course they are brand new as well but I would say that they are more cozy than the main complex. I loved that our two-bedroom villa not only had a spacious living room but also a kitchen and eating table where you can cook your own meals if you’re in the mood for it! On both sides of the living room is one bedroom each and they both have their private bathroom with bathtub and shower. From the bed we were looking at our verandah with an amazing sunrise right behind it every single morning! I can highly recommend to book an in room breakfast which will be delivered right to your terrace with your food of choice – there is no better way to start the day!
THE CONCEPT OF THE ANGSANA CORFU
As soon as you set foot in the hotel you feel that the resort is brand new with a modern but cozy interior as well as a friendly and motivated staff. You can find many stylish places all around the resort like the sunrise pool bar, the lobby or most of all: the insane pool. Thanks to the higher location of the resort on a hill you can enjoy uninterrupted views in almost every direction! THE POOL The centerpiece of the Angsana Corfu and what lets the resort stand out from others is the incredibly huge infinity pool which offers unparalleled views over the Ionian Sea and the surrounding. Especially during sunrise the pool transforms into a huge mirror which reflects the most beautiful orange and golden colors of the sky which makes a spectacular scene! It is absolutely worth the early wake up call 😉 But also during the day the pool is the ideal place to relax and bask in the sunshine in one of the many loungers or cabanas while sipping a cocktail from the Sunrise Pool Bar!
