Our Venue: Ypseli Anafi's Hive

Ypseli will be our exclusive private sanctuary for the Blue Bliss Retreat

Ypseli is a breathtaking sanctuary offering panoramic views of the mystical island of Anafi. A refined elegance welcomes you in a world of sublime aesthetic experience with its unique Sea View Suites. 

The resort architecture is inspired by the organic shapes present in ceramic hives, wise creations of local potters. Ypseli is modeled on the famous “katikies” of Anafi, the farmhouses of Anafians, who are also famous builders in the Aegean.

The common name for the hive is used by inhabitants of the Aegean Sea. The name of a tiny creation symbolizes the progress, effort, cooperation, coordination, and production of an invaluable nutritious ingredient, which is also one of nature’s sweetest flavors.

The long-held tradition of beekeeping amongst the islands of the eastern Mediterranean retains some well-hidden treasures. Hives carved out of stone, but also ceramic hives created by the islanders to house the invaluable bees can be found scattered throughout the island's inland and have long been a symbol of our unique culture.

We decided to revive this word and just as the precious Anafian honey contains the richness of the fragrant island flowers together with the seas aura, so do our accommodations contain the condensed flavor of the island. A flavor that one discovers when opening a hive, a flavor that is grounded to Anafi and which can be rightfully called… Anafi’s Hive!
