Banyan Tree Group continues its global expansion with the upcoming June 15 opening of its first flagship property in Europe, Angsana Corfu Resort & Spa in Greece. The resort will boast 159 guestrooms and suites, and 37 one- to four-bedroom pool villas.
“At Angsana Corfu, we hope to bring the island of Corfu to life with curated experiences for every type of traveler,” said Juan Carlos Cardona, general manager, Angsana Corfu Resort & Spa. “Whether it be a couple interested in going olive oil tasting, a family with young kids yearning to ride Skyrian pony rides, or groups wanting to go stand up paddle boarding at Korission Lake, it is our goal to connect visitors with the vivacious culture that is so unique to this Greek destination.”
Dubbing itself an experience-driven retreat, some of Angsana Corfu Resort & Spa’s main features include a total of 10 food and beverage venues, with four signature restaurants and seven bars with outdoor terraces; Angsana Spa, boasting 11 treatment rooms, an indoor pool area and Juice Bar; Banyan Tree’s signature Rangers’ Club, a dedicated space for children; the ability to book a range of daytrip excursions; and six dedicated venues for weddings and events.
“After a challenging year for the travel industry, we are grateful and excited for the grand opening of the first Banyan Tree in Europe, with the addition of Angsana Corfu,” said Sergio Serra, AVP and regional director of sales & marketing for the Americas, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Banyan Tree Group. “Corfu in the Ionian Islands is an ideal destination for us to open our newest sanctuary, given its onus on environmentalism, wellness and an incredibly vibrant local culture.”
