AmanZoe Porto Xeli, Argolida, 2012
Comprising a 38-suite seven stars resort, Amanzoe is situated on a hilltop close to the town of Kranidi on the east coast of the Peloponnese. The resort offers panoramic views of the Peloponnese countryside and coastline. It is a private Beach Club in a picturesque bay with easy access to the cosmopolitan islands of Spetses and Hydra. The whole project meant to resemble the Greek nature and integrate the construction with the environment. The design of Amanzoe is strongly influenced by classical Greek architecture, yet is contemporary in tendency and construction techniques. Taking into account the property’s hilltop setting and open views, the design is particularly inspired by traditional Greek acropolises – citadels built atop elevated ground in ancient times.
In the environmental site of the hotel a Mediterranean site of shrubs and trees has been created at a total area of approximately 80.000m² which are all native Greek plants. In addition green roof gardens of approximately 8.000m² were constructed.
