Over the last decades, Porto Heli is becoming more and more popular as a cosmopolitan destination in Greece. Already since the 1970s, many international jet setters would come spending their holidays in the bay of Porto Heli and the close islands of Hydra and Spetses. The beginning was made when Hydra became the setting for the international movie “The boy and the dolphin” in 1957, starring Sophia Lauren.
After that, the island became world famous and attracted Hollywood stars, artists and business men from the entire world. Gradually this international jet set discovered the entire region and expanded until they discovered the beautiful region of Porto Heli, a fantastic spot that combines green surroundings and sea views.
A region with luxurious resorts
The first villas and luxurious hotels were then constructed in the region between Porto Heli, Kranidi and Ermioni. This cosmopolitan atmosphere continues until today with marinas for private yachts, upscale hotels, private villas and gorgeous residences. Some business men have even bought small private islands in the region!
Among the most popular holiday resorts in Porto Heli are Nikki Beach Resort and Spa, Aks Hnitsa Bay, Hapimag Resort Porto Heli and, of course, the super luxurious Porto Heli AmanZoe Resort.
AmanZoe in Porto Heli is a branch of the international hotel chain Aman that has resorts in many tourist destinations in the world, such as the Domenican Republic, China, the Philippines, the Grand Canyon, India and more. Porto Heli AmanZoe has 38 luxurious suites with private pools, upscale restaurants, unique architecture and gorgeous view to the surrounding region and the sea.
