Surrounded by a midnight-blue sea and nestled amid arid mountains blanketed with wild thyme, Anemi's 44 accommodations are in two-story bungalows linked by stone pathways that wind through aromatic gardens. The heart of the hotel is the minimalist lobby, restaurant, and glamorous infinity pool. The suites, with private verandas and kitchenettes, have contemporary furnishings and vibrant photography that contrast with hand-hewn beams and oversized wood doors. The complimentary breakfast includes a blitz of fresh pastries, egg dishes, and yogurt with local honey and can sustain you into late afternoon. Nightfall presents the option to dine poolside, although the staff will gladly drive you the two miles to the island's main village of Chora. One of the Cyclades's oldest medieval towns, picturesque Chora is cordoned off to car and moped traffic and has plenty of inexpensive dining under a lantern-lit canopy of trees.
