Stepping into Amanzoe in Porto Heli, Greece is like walking straight into paradise! After all, its name is drawn from the Sanskrit-derived word for “peace” and zoe, the Greek word for “life”. Located on a hilltop close to the town of Porto Heli, this stunning resort offers perhaps the best panoramic views of the Peloponnese coastline, silvery olive groves and the glittering Aegean Sea, which will surely take your breath away (and your friends too when they see your photos).
Amanzoe’s 38 villas, beach cabanas and pavilions are designed to let you experience the beautiful surrounding of this resort, thanks to its sunlight-filled interiors.
The standalone pavilions are designed according to classic Greek architecture complete with open terraces, 12-metre or six-metre private plunge pools and premium views of the surrounding land and sea. The high-ceilinged living area and king-size bed positioned in a marble alcove evokes a feeling of elegance and ultimate class.
Meanwhile the four-to-nine bedroom villas features an open terrace with sand-coloured marble floors, traditional dry stone-clad walls and concrete columns and cornices. These villas overlook the Aegean Sea and come complete with a chef and host for great hospitality.
