Spa nirvana at Amanzoe

When it comes to spa’s I am a bit spoiled. I used to live in Japan and have travelled throughout Asia in the quest of the perfect massage, the perfect location and the best hands. I am also one of the most stressed people I know, which makes it a bit hard for any therapist to succeed in making me decompress. When Amanzoe was set to open last year, the spa was probably the one thing I was mostly looking forward to but did have my reservations on how they would train the Greeks to the Asian etiquette of spa-ing. It goes without saying that if anyone could do it this would be Amanresorts, because after all they are legendary for instilling the Asian principles everywhere they choose to operate around the world, always though with great respect to the local cultures.


Needless to say, the result not only exceeded my personal expectations but arguably puts the Amanzoe spa up there in the ranks of the best spas’ in the world. The grey silver cloud and snow white Thassos marble clad spa has 7 double treatment rooms, all with fireplace, steam room and outdoor lounge areas, a separate watsu pool, hamams, changing rooms, cold plunge pools and a truly inspiring yoga studio gazing out towards the Tuscanesque rolling hills. As you walk through the columned walkway towards the spa. lobby, the mesmerizing scents of the locally produced fleur d’orange incents fill the air, and put you immediately in the right mood. You are welcomed in the golden hued reception area with smiles, charm and a delicious (I took the recipe at home with me!) hot drink with citrus peels, vanilla, cardamom and mountain tea. Purposefully the wifi and the cell phones don’t work here, ensuring full relaxation and emertion into the rituals. The therapist guides you to the treatment room through yet another array of columns and gracefully explains that this is a true sanctuary to the senses, a place to get in touch with your inner self, to relax and unwind. And you cant help but feel this just by walking to your treatment room amidst and array of orange trees, water features and Grecian elements so beautifully interpreted in a contemporary manner. Oils and products used in the treatments are created by Sodashi in Australia especially for Amanresorts and are 100% organic. Plant essences and extracts have been carefully sourced from around the world for their purity, potency and therapeutic qualities. Deep tissue and hot stone massage, pressure point precision Thai massage, and blissful facials and rejuvenation therapies are among the signature treatments. It is the therapists and the personnel though that makes the difference. Not only are they impeccably trained and speak from their heart, but most importantly they care and have the knowledge to customize the treatment to your needs.
