Imagine waking up to the sound of cicadas and the sight of the sun rising over the azure sea. Imagine spending your days exploring ancient ruins, sailing to idyllic islands, or relaxing by your private pool. Imagine enjoying a gourmet meal under the stars, surrounded by fragrant flowers and flickering candles. Imagine living in a villa that combines the elegance of classical Greece with the comfort and luxury of modern design. This is not a dream, this is Amanzoe.
Amanzoe is a resort and a collection of villas located on a hilltop near Porto Heli, on the east coast of the Peloponnese peninsula in Greece. The resort draws its name from the Sanskrit word for peace and the Greek word for life, reflecting the philosophy of harmony and well-being. These villas are inspired by the architecture and culture of ancient Greece, but reimagined through an Aman spectrum, meaning they offer unparalleled privacy, service, and amenities.
The villas are designed by renowned architect Ed Tuttle, who also created Aman's first resort in Phuket, Thailand. Tuttle has masterfully blended the elements of classical Greek architecture, such as columns, cornices, and courtyards, with locally sourced materials, such as marble, stone, and wood. The result is a series of spacious and airy pavilions that seamlessly connect indoor and outdoor living spaces.
Each villa has its own swimming pool, terrace, garden, and panoramic view of the Aegean Sea. The villas range from one to nine bedrooms and can accommodate up to 20 guests. Some villas also feature additional facilities, such as gyms, spas, cinemas, or even an immersive art installation by James Turrell. The interiors are decorated with elegant furnishing, artworks, and antiques that reflect the rich heritage of Greece.
The villas are serviced by a dedicated team of staff, including a villa host, a chef, a housekeeper, and a driver. The staff is trained to anticipate and cater to every need and wish of the guests, from arranging excursions and activities to preparing meals and drinks. The guests also have full access to all the facilities and services of the resort, such as the Aman Spa, the Beach Club, the restaurants, and the bars.
The location of Amanzoe is ideal for exploring the beauty and history of Greece. The resort is close to several archaeological sites, such as Epidaurus, Mycenae, Nafplio, and Olympia. It is also near some of the most charming islands in the Saronic Gulf, such as Spetses, Hydra, and Poros. The resort can arrange boat trips, helicopter tours, or car transfers to these destinations.
Amanzoe is more than just a resort or a villa. It is a lifestyle that celebrates the essence of Greece: its culture, its nature, and its spirit. It is a place where guests can experience classical Greece reimagined through an Aman spectrum: with peace, luxury, and exclusivity. It is a place where guests can live their dream.
