Drawing its name from the Sanskrit-derived word for “peace” and “zoe”, the Greek word for “life”, Amanzoe is situated on a hilltop close to the quaint town of Porto Heli on the east coast of the Peloponnese. The resort offers almost 360º panoramic sea views as well as a private Beach Club in a picturesque bay.
Surrounded by undulating olive groves and overlooking the island of Spetses and the Argosaronic Gulf beyond, Amanzoe is just a 10-minute drive from the tavernas and vibrant life of Porto Heli. The road approaching Amanzoe ascends to the porte-cochere, a grand marble-clad edifice which serves as the entrance. Beyond lies the hilltop resort, arranged around an expansive reflection pool with spectacular views of the sea.
Resort accommodation is in the form of 38 guest pavilions arranged on different levels to maximise privacy and the breathtaking views over the Aegean. Each free-standing pavilion is accessed through a stone-wall courtyard that leads to spacious living and sleeping areas with high ceilings. Beds are positioned in a marble-walled alcove which, together with the living area and bathroom, opens up onto the terrace, shaded by a pergola. Each Pool Pavilion offers a six-metre pool and each Deluxe Pool Pavilion features a 12-metre pool. Rooms are also available to accommodate guests with disabilities.
Amanzoe guests and villa owners, as well as a select number of Aman Club members can enjoy the exclusive use of the Beach Club. The Beach Club provides refreshments and a dining area, as well as water sport equipment.
Amanzoe’s Aman Spa comprises seven double treatment rooms, two hammams and a hair and finishing salon, all looking onto a peaceful open-air courtyard. Other options for fitness and recreation include a fully-equipped Gym, Pilates equipment, a Yoga Studio overlooking the surrounding hills and two outdoor tennis courts. The generously-proportioned main swimming pool and a children’s pool complete these facilities.
