Comprising a 38-suite resort and an Aman Spa, Amanzo'e is Amanresorts’ third Mediterranean retreat – the Greek complement to Montenegro’s Aman Sveti Stefan and Turkey’s Amanruya. Drawing its name from the Sanskrit-derived word for "peace" and zoe (pronounced zoi), the Greek word for "life," Amanzo'e is situated on a hilltop close to the quaint town of Porto Heli on the east coast of the Peloponnese. The luxury Porto Heli resort offers almost 360º panoramic sea views as well as a private Beach Club in a picturesque bay.

Peloponnesia is only known for a couple of things: A long, bloody war against Athens and super awesome beaches. We'll be focusing a little bit more on the latter in this article because Amanresorts is opening a new boutique hotel on the Aegean Sea. I can promise you that the only thing spartan about the 38 rooms here will be their location. Its spa will offer the epitome of personalized service for the few guests this small property makes room for, and you'll be free to tour the historical sites of Ancient Greece or simply relax and take in the views of the pristine Mediterranean landscape. Amanresorts already has a couple properties on the Mediterranean, but you'll find the bulk of their beautiful boutiques further east in Asia, such as the Aman New Delhi, or Aman at Summer Palace Beijing. Specializing in the personal experience, where staff practically outnumbers the guests, Amanresorts are usually great places to relax and escape. We're looking forward to the Amanzoe this summer. In the interim, make sure to check out our other resort on the Peloponnesian peninsula.

The views from the ancient Bronze Age acropolis in Nafplion are breathtaking. From your perch above this white-washed village on the Greek mainland, the Bay of Argolis sparkles turquoise far below. The Nafplia Palace Hotel & Villas-- aka the "jewel of the Pelaponnese"-- occupies a prime piece of real estate, built within an archeological site dating from the 3rd century BC. Designed to blend in to its surrounding environment, this uniquely-situated hotel offers stunning views from each and every one of its chic rooms, some equipped with balconies, private swimming pools, or outdoor jacuzzis. The hotel has three restaurants, two bars, a chic spa, and beautiful pools. There's even an elevator that carries guests down through the ancient bedrock of the acropolis to access the town beneath.
