“Aman perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

We had decided to rent a car from Athens airport. First 100km portion is highway, then the second half is a scenic mountain road. It takes about 2:30 hours. However the resort is extremely difficult to find and without the help of teenagers showing us the way on their motorbike from Kranidi we would still be lost. So best way to reach Amanzoé is to request an Aman car or helicopter.

The resort is in a soft-opening stage. But it was hard to believe that first guests arrived one month ago only as the service was so friendly, efficient and attentive. Perfect housekeeping (never visible). You never had to sign anything or to give your room number even on the first day as everybody seem to know you. Attention to detail is just amazing.

Choice in restaurant is somewhat limited. For lunch you can go to the pool restaurant (great salads, sandwiches like roasted lamb with pita bread) or to the beach club restaurant (fish, salads, pizzas). For dinner the main restaurant serves a refined & more elaborate cuisine. The Chef is a nice guy who previously worked in Paris & London. His 20+ brigade will rethink & adapt the menu after the first operating months to comply with guests expectations. For dinner for 2 starters, 2 main courses and 2 glasses of wine prices range from 120 to 140 Eur. For lunch 2 or 3 salads to share were about 50 Eur.

We went to the well equiped gym everyday. We saw 3 different trainers all very helping. We tried Pilates classes and had a lot of fun (there are 2 daily classes of Yoga / Stretching / Pilates).

The spa is beautiful, we had the best therapists there that we ever experienced. I also had a haircut, they call a hair stylist from Kranidi who spent 15 years in Chicago. She was just as kind as Amanzoe own staff.

With 38 pavilions only (each with their private pool) the resort never feels too busy. Monumental library, main pool (25mx12m), beach club pools (two of 25mx6m each), fantastic view both from the bar and the restaurant, I do not have enough words to say how beautiful and relaxed this resort is.

The beach is a pebble beach but after the first 5 meters it is a sand bedsea and in September the water temperature is at its best. Going there from the resort is a 10 minutes drive with one of the Aman cars (Cayenne, ML, E-class, Mercedes mini-van). We booked the 'Aquazoe' for one day (Pershing 62), it is a great way to visit nearby islands like Spetses and Hydra, even if a bit expensive (about 3.000 Eur). They also have a smaller boat called 'Amanzoe One' which is about half the price of Aquazoe.

Do not hesitate and just go as it will become a favorite destination very quickly.

Room Tip: Pavilion choice will depend on what you value most: view (to me best is 24/25/26/27/28 and 34/35/36...
