Amanzoe resort on Greece’s eastern Peloponnesian peninsula recently launched Villa 20, Aman group’s most exclusive villa in Greece. Situated on a gentle rise surrounded by undulating olive groves, Amanzoe’s 360-degree views take in the Peloponnese countryside and rocky coves. The resort is within easy reach of a wealth of archaeological sites and bustling Porto Heli.
However, this new Villa 20 spread out on four acres of land atop a hill strewn with olive groves and constructed on six levels with nine bedrooms and seven pools, it functions as a veritable boutique hotel within the hotel. The residence also features a series of living and dining areas, a state-of-the-art gym with an outdoor yoga terrace and even its own spa.
Like the hotel, Villa 20 has also been designed by Ed Tuttle – the doyen of Aman architects, so the villa shares the signature lean lines and neutral tones in marble, fine woods and stone of other Amans. But here the design touches of contemporary furniture in curved lines, hand woven rugs, sculptures and paintings by Greek and international artists also incorporate a nod to Greek style: white columns framing the views. The views, in fact, are intended to be the prominent design touch visible through open air salons on every level, surrounding guests with visions of olive groves, lavender trees and the sea.
Villa 20 – new privately owned residence is available to rent for those seeking the top drawer service and amenities the brand is best known for, but with the privacy and exclusivity of an independent property. It is just a short golf buggy ride away from Amanzoe, where its spa, spectacular yoga pavilion, two restaurants, bar and library awaits. Rate for a week: $129,290.
