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. Surrounded by undulating olive groves and overlooking the island of Spetses and the Argosaronic Gulf beyond, Amanzo'e is just a 10-minute drive from the tavernas and vibrant life of Porto Heli. The road approaching Amanzo'e ascends to the porte-cochere, a grand marble-clad edifice which serves as the entrance. Beyond lies one of the most fabulous greece luxury resorts, arranged around an expansive reflection pool with spectacular views of the sea. Every one of Amanzo'e's 38 guest pavilions has its own private swimming pool. Each Pool Pavilion offers a six-metre pool and each Deluxe Pool Pavilion features a 12-metre pool. The free-standing pavilions are arranged on different levels to maximise privacy and the breathtaking views over the Aegean. Each pavilion is accessed through a stone-wall courtyard that leads to spacious, high-ceilinged living and sleeping areas. Beds are positioned in a marble-walled alcove which, together with the living area and bathroom, opens up onto the terrace, shaded by a pergola.

Rich in history and steeped in mythology, the Peloponnese is a large peninsula in southern Greece, forming the part of the country south of the Gulf of Corinth. Named for the founder of the Olympic Games, King Pelops, the peninsula reaches out its rocky, beach-fringed fingers into the azure waters of the Aegean Sea and is home to beautiful countryside dominated by olive groves and carob trees. The Peloponnese has long been a favoured weekend and holiday destination for Athenians due to its proximity to Greece’s capital, its mild climate and peaceful scenery.
