Part of the prestigious Aman brand, Amanzoe is a luxurious retreat that delivers impeccable service and attention to detail. Sitting on a hillside overlooking the town of Porto Heli and the sea, the property garners a sense of relaxation from the quiet beauty of the water and the blue mountains of the Peloponnesus in the distance. Design-wise, it follows the trademark sleek, modern lines of an Aman property while throwing tasteful nods to classical Greek architecture — airy, colonnaded porticoes are a feature throughout.
The 38 pavilions all include a private pool and terrace and exhibit a clean-lined decor that draws from the highest quality materials and chimes with the surrounding landscape. Expect to find soft-gray stone, white marble and fabrics in neutral tones.
The hotel’s dining options and facilities cater to the wants and needs of even the most demanding guest. A private beach club is a ten-minute drive away (shuttles run on demand throughout the day). The spa and gym are outstanding and the yoga pavilion is one of the most beautiful we’ve come across. The choice of restaurants offers varied cuisine, focusing on top-quality and often, local ingredients.

Each of the 38 free-standing pavilions has a private pool and terrace with outside seating, and a spacious interior, all secluded from other guests to ensure your privacy. The sleek, contemporary decor makes use of the highest quality fixtures and fabrics, and the flexible floor plan allows you to create open spaces or close off sleeping areas. There are also nine beach cabana rooms in the main part of the hotel, with a similar layout to the pavilions but set on the resort’s private beach.
Situated on a hilltop above the town of Porto Heli, overlooking the sea, the property is surrounded by a rustic Greek landscape of olive and cypress trees. The elevated location only amplifies the views of the sea and surrounding mountains of the Peloponnesus.
Food and drink
The numerous dining options cater to a variety of tastes. As well as expansive views, the fine-dining restaurant offers up Mediterranean cuisine focused on the finest local ingredients. The pool restaurant serves Japanese cuisine in the evenings, and the Beach Club restaurant has a pizza oven.
Facilities and activities
Among the hotel’s plentiful facilities, the Beach Club is a ten-minute drive away and a shuttle van will transport you down, on request, throughout the day (you can also bike down, if you’d prefer). There are two pools for adults and two for children, as well as an extensive spa with state-of-the-art facilities and treatments. For keeping active, you have use of an excellent fitness area and the open-air yoga pavilion with its beautiful views, as well as the tennis courts. A quiet, high-ceilinged library contains more than 1,000 volumes for guests to borrow during their stay.
No other hotel in the country offers the level of luxury, natural beauty, service and facilities that we found on display at Amanzoe. The hotel is a destination in itself.
