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.
Perched high on the Peloponnese peninsula like a modern-day acropolis, Villa 20 is a masterpiece of elegant indoor-outdoor living. Designed by Ed Tuttle and Marios Angelopoulos to meld with the landscape, Villa 20 enjoys sweeping views of rolling hills, the Aegean Sea and the Peloponnese.
With a private spa, six pools and a multitude of dining spaces, including two outside barbecue areas and a typical Greek taverna under the olive trees, Villa 20 is the perfect retreat for groups of friends and families alike.
Large scale sculptures are creatively placed throughout the property, and the owners’ carefully curated selection of art, books from their personal library and artefacts gathered over their years of travel, creates the mood of a private home.
Nature is central to the design of villa 20; reflection pools lined in green marble capture sea and sky; fragrant gardens sooth the senses; and natural materials reinforce a connection to the ancient landscape.
The ultimate private retreat, Villa 20 accommodates 18 guests in five 100m2 pavilions and four luxury studio bedrooms, all opening onto private terraces and some pavilions featuring plunge pools.
Guests of Villa 20 also enjoy access to a dedicated Beach Cabana (upon availability) at the Amanzoe Beach Club, ensuring maximum privacy and comfort. The one-bedroom Cabana has a private terrace and 10 meter pool, with direct access to the sea 30 metres away.
The private Spa & Gym in the Villa covers 650m2 and offers a wide range of facilities, including treatment rooms, sauna, steam room, water massage bed, whirlpool, 15-metre indoor pool and cold plunge pool. The state-of-the-art gym features Technogym equipment and is complemented by spacious outdoor yoga and training terraces enjoying beautiful views.
Villa 20 is the perfect retreat for friends and families seeking valuable, quality time in a home away from home, whilst enjoying all that Amanzoe has to offer. Dining venues are spacious and include an alfresco fire ring, BBQ, gardens and a Greek Taverna under ancient olive trees. Multiple living and meeting areas, alongside a billiard room and a library, allow all guests' needs to be met in the comfort of Villa 20.
