A hidden jewel at Java’s centre Amanjiwo rests in the shadows of the largest Buddhist temple complex in the world, Borobudur, which reopens to visitors from 1 March 2023.
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. Discover nearby Porto Heli and the resorts' water-bound adventures, including kayaking, island hopping and snorkelling.
Close to Amanzoe, a traditional farmhouse rests in a picturesque valley, surrounded by orchards, groves and fields tilled as they have been for centuries. Children can collect eggs and feed the farm animals, while the adults learn more about farm life. Then sit down at the old wooden table on the sunlit veranda to enjoy an authentic Greek farmhouse breakfast with the farmer and his family.
A specially curated outing to the Bairaktaris family apiary nearby reveals both age-old and more modern methods of beekeeping. The farm supplies all of Amanzoe’s honey, and offers a detailed tasting, including the farm’s renowned clove and thyme honeys. They also make a range of natural propolis moisturisers infused with local herbs.
The wealth of nearby archaeological sites includes Epidaurus with its Unesco-protected amphitheatre and the Sanctuary of Asklepios – the most renowned healing centre of the ancient world. The legendary citadel of Mycenae, the ancient capital of Nafplion, the village of Didyma, the Temple of Hera close to Argos, the Byzantine monastery of St Dimitrios and many other sites also rest in close proximity to the resort.
Amanzoe’s private beach and Beach Club lie below the hilltop resort overlooking a sheltered bay. Complimentary transfers take guests down to the Aegean, where guests can relax between swimming pools and sea, dine just steps from the water and depart on island-hopping day trips.
From hopping island to island on one of the resorts' vessels to enjoying the beach through activities such as snorkelling, windsurfing or paddleboarding.
Amanzoe is ideal for families, with activities to suit all ages. Babysitters are available for younger children upon request, and a regular calendar of organised activities is offered for older children ranging from arts and crafts and storytelling to games, sports and beekeeping.
