Here’s my unique experience at the Ayii Anargyri Natural Healing Spa Resort in Cyprus.
On a recent visit to Cyprus, the Land of Aphrodite, I felt like a goddess myself, relaxed and recharged, after visiting the unique Ayii Anargyri Natural Healing Spa Resort. The name says it all. As soon as you step in, you are transported into a world of calm and peace.
With a history dating back to 1649, this resort has so much character. And, of course, its most popular asset is that it is blessed with the mineral-rich sulphur waters of the Agia Anastasia spring. This natural spring water is channeled into three treatment pools, each catering to a different requirement—kinesiotherapy, rheumatology, and phlebology. Or, simply put, the medical spa treatments at Ayii Anargyri focus on conditions such as joint pain, gout, arthritis, and rheumatism.
As I waited at the reception for the spa manager to direct me to the treatment area, I was amazed at the number of people checking in to the resort; most of them for the unique treatments available here. I decided to opt for the one that I felt was rather unique at this resort—just taking a dip in the extremely unique indoor pools.
There are three indoor pools, each meant for its own unique purpose. In the first pool, which is meant for the entire body, I walked in the pool filled with spring water and then rested on the stone bed. In the second pool, which addresses the leg area, I walked against the force of the gushing water. And the third pool had showers that throw out water in full force at the neck and shoulder areas. You need to spend 15 minutes in each pool. The spa manager or therapist usually decides the order in which you need to take your treatment. Believe it or not, within two minutes of being in the first pool, I felt a whole lot of fatigue being released from my body. Such was the magic of the natural sulphur spring water. After this wonder of natural waters, I headed to the relaxation room to continue being in a blissful state.
In addition to the three dips at the indoor pools, Ayii Anargyri also offers a range of wellness services, such as face and body care, massage therapies, fitness, and physiotherapy, where the treatment products meet the sulphur spring water for amazing results.
Things that I loved:
1. The sulphur pools are great for people who don’t enjoy human pressure on their body as these provide immense relaxation without human touch.
2. While you’re in the indoor pools, you can still enjoy being in nature, thanks to the beautiful views outside these rooms.
3. Since it’s a spa resort, you can actually continue being in a Zen-like state even after your treatment, in an environment that spells true bliss.
4. The spa centre is specially-equipped for guests with mobility issues.
