With its stunning rocky coastline, pine forests, olive groves and vineyards the Peloponnese is as rich in natural beauty as it is in history. The wealth of archaeological sites in the area include the Sanctuary of Asklepios at Epidaurus, with its renowned amphitheatre, and the legendary citadel of Mycenae – both are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

On arrival at Amanzoe the somewhat lengthy (2.5 hours) drive from Athens is instantly forgotten. Set on an idyllic hilltop location in Greece’s eastern Peloponnesian peninsula with stunning views across the forests, mountains and sea, Amanzoe is yet another jewell in the prestigious Aman collection – and cited as one of Europe’s most elite retreats.

Aman spas are renowned as some of the best in the world and the Amanzoe spa doesn’t disappoint. The holistic healings of Hippocrates are the inspiration for the light-filled 2,850-square-metre spa.Facilities include 8 treatment pavilions with sunken bathtubs, steam rooms and relaxation areas, a Watsu pool, a Thai massage room and a manicure and pedicure salon.

The Treatment

My Zoe Treatment began with an uplifting eucalyptus-infused steam bath to rejuvenate, cleanse and clear the sinuses. A full-body scrub using pure local olive oil and sea salt followed to exfoliate and smooth my skin.

A quick shower, then an incredible, and deeply hydrating, olive oil massage was performed using a combination of sweeping, stretching and kneading techniques. A laurel oil scalp therapy head massage competed the holistic and blissful experience.

Other Treatments

Amazon Rejuvenation – A Himalayan salt scrub is followed with a nutrient rich clay body mask then a relaxing massage using local Greek olive oil.

Holistic facials and massges, pregnancy treatments, Watsu therapy.

We stayed in a Deluxe Pool Pavillion, with an airy living space, high ceilings and clean contemporary lines. There’s a spacious living area, with an alcove leading through to a light-filled bedroom with floor to ceiling windows. The pretty garden terrace had a large dining area and a private pool.

You can also opt for a Beach Cabana. Situated directly on the beach, Beach Cabanas provide all the comforts of a pavilion with the added bonus of the sea on your doorstep.
