AmanZoe Resort, 5*
Comprising a 38-suite resort, an Aman Spa and a number of Aman Villas, Amanzoe is the Greek complement to Montenegro’s Aman Sveti Stefan and Turkey’s Amanruya. 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 town of Porto Heli on the east coast of the Peloponnese. The resort offers panoramic views of the Peloponnese countryside and coastline, a private Beach Club in a picturesque bay and easy access to the cosmopolitan islands of Spetses and Hydra. Amanzoe’s entrance and reception areas overlook an expansive reflection pool, beyond which the Library, Boutique and Gallery are set amongst terraces, courtyards and gardens joined by walkways. The resort’s dining pavilions and lounges include the Restaurant, Pool Restaurant, Fireplace and Living Room with its central Bar. The landscape allows for several secondary areas such as the Aman Spa, set within colonnaded and walled gardens, the main swimming pool, surrounded by an expansive terrace: a gym, Pilates studio and yoga pavilion and a small amphitheatre. Other facilities include a Meeting Pavilion, two tennis courts and the Beach Club.
