Luxury Holidays in Mainland
Amanzoe, Mainland, Greece
Comprising a 38-suite resort and an Aman Spa, Amanzoe is Amanresorts’ third Mediterranean retreat – the Greek complement to Montenegro’s Aman Sveti Stefan and Turkey’s Amanruya. Aman’s fourth Mediterranean destination is Aman Canal Grande Venice.
Drawing its name from the Sanskrit-derived word for ‘peace’ and zoe (pronounced zoi), 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 coastline and the island of Spetses, as well as a private Beach Club in a picturesque bay.
Every one of Amanzoe's 38 guest pavilions has its own private swimming pool, ranging in length from six to 12 metres. The pavilions are divided into four categories depending on location. The free-standing pavilions are arranged on different levels to maximise privacy and the breathtaking views over the Aegean. Each pavilion is accessed through a stone-wall courtyard that leads to spacious, high-ceilinged living and sleeping areas. 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. Rooms are also available to accommodate guests with disabilities.
The Library provides a broad range of reading materials in several languages. Reference works on many subjects are available, including a wide spectrum of material on Greek history.
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. Treatments include massages, facials, scrubs and wraps, combining the best Asian techniques with ancient Greek beauty rituals, and using Aman Spa’s own range of natural skincare products.
Amanzoe offers various options for fitness and recreation including a fully-equipped gym, Pilates facilities, a yoga studio overlooking the surrounding hills and two outdoor tennis courts. A generously-proportioned main swimming pool and a children’s pool and free-play area offer additional recreational alternatives for guests of all ages.
Boutique & Art Gallery
A variety of unique Greek handicrafts, jewellery and artwork is on display and available for purchase.
Amanzoe guests and villa owners can enjoy the exclusive use of the Beach Club. Situated in a beautiful bay with sparkling turquoise waters, the Beach Club is only a five-minute drive from the resort. Alternatively, guests can mountain bike the picturesque route. The Beach Club provides refreshments and a dining area, as well as two lap pools and water sports equipment. Boating excursions can be arranged to explore the nearby islands.
Beach Bar & Pool Bar
The more relaxed Living Room with its central Bar is the ideal venue for a quiet aperitif or light bite to eat, while the Pool Restaurant offers a casual spot for all-day dining. The Beach Club also offers an informal restaurant.
The Restaurant is a shaded, high-ceilinged structure defined by floor-to-ceiling windows that maximise the sea views. It is fronted by an expansive outdoor terrace designed for alfresco dining.
