History & Story
Comprising a resort with 38 guest pavilions, four villas and an Aman Spa, Amanzoe is situated on a hilltop on the east coast of Greece’s Peloponnese Peninsula. Combining the Sanskrit-derived word for ‘peace’ with zoe, the Greek word for ‘life’, Amanzoe offers panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and the Aegean Sea, as well as a private Beach Club in a picturesque bay. The resort is just a 10-minute drive from the tavernas and vibrant nightlife of Porto Heli, and offers easy access to the wealth of ancient archaeological sites in the area, as well as the islands of Spetses and Hydra.
