The helicopter flight from Athens to Amanzoe creates a swift segue into an altogether wilder Greece – a place of pure nature, where time stands still. Scattered with Unesco-protected ruins, the beach-fringed Peloponnese has been at the heart of Greek culture for millennia, its small mountain towns and quaint seaside villages welcoming visitors to traditional Greek living at its best. It is on the east coast of this fabled peninsula that Amanzoe rests, a modern-day Acropolis from which 360-degree views encompass olive groves, Aegean blue, and little else.
Set in a land of classical ruins, azure seas and olive groves on the coast of the Peloponnese, Amanzoe embraces the architecture and soul of ancient Greece and is ideally placed for exploring the region’s rich culture, cuisine and natural attractions. Explore the ancient Unesco-protected ruins of Epidaurus and Mycenae, take a horse and carriage ride to a seaside restaurant on the island of Spetses, discover the coastline by kayak, Hobie Cat or motoryacht and enjoy a concert beneath the stars in a classical amphitheatre.
Accommodation at Amanzoe comprises of exquisite pavilions, beach cabanas, as well as, private villas. Drawing on classic Greek architecture, with strong lines and a pared-back aesthetic, Amanzoe’s standalone luxury Pavilions all open onto terraces with private plunge pools and views of the surrounding land and sea. Each Pavilion is accessed via a stone-walled courtyard, leading to a high-ceilinged living area and king-size bed positioned in a marble alcove with views over the Porto Heli vista.
Situated directly on the beach, the spacious air-conditioned Beach Cabana provide all the comforts of a Pavilion, combined with an expansive terrace and swimming pool. Guests can enjoy a day on the beach, swimming in the sea, discovering bays by canoe and sunbathing in privacy. Meals can be enjoyed at Amanzoe’s Beach Club restaurant or in the privacy of a Beach Cabana. Gym and spa treatment rooms are also available.
Amanzoe’s luxury villas are cool, spacious abodes surrounded by olive groves. Overlooking the Aegean Sea, each of the one-to-nine-bedroom Greek villas features an open terrace with sand-coloured marble floors, traditional dry stone-clad walls and concrete columns and cornices. A chef and a host serves each one.

Lasting three nights or more, both cleansing and weight-management pathways balance movement, nutrition and mental and spiritual elements to deliver meaningful, lasting change in body and mind.
Close to Amanzoe, the Aesclepeion of Epidaurus in Greece was the most important centre of healing in the ancient world. People would come to spend the night in the complex, hoping Aesclepius, the doctor-god, would visit them in their dreams and prescribe them a personal pathway to health. Amanzoe continues this tradition, tapping into the region’s healing heritage and cultivating immersive, personal routes to wellbeing.
