First Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Greece to Open at Costa Navarino
The Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group and TEMES S.A. will introduce the first Mandarin Oriental property in Greece in spring 2023.
The new Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino will be located in a breathtaking 140-hectare natural landscape at Navarino Bay, an integrated resort area in the region of Messinia in southwestern Peloponnese.
“We are proud to have the [Mandarin] Group bring their hospitality expertise for the first time to Greece, signifying the further growth of Costa Navarino, which is becoming a top international destination to visit and live,” said TEMES Chairman Achilles V. Constantakopoulos.
The beachfront luxury resort will feature 99 guest rooms, including 48 spacious earth-sheltered pool villas, all with outdoor terraces and stunning sea views, along with five restaurants and bars.
Crafted by Tombazis & Associates Architects and K-Studio, the unique design is aligned with Costa Navarino’s sustainable principles, featuring planted roofs blending into the natural environment and local materials.
The ultra-premium resort will also feature a 1,500 m2 spa and fitness center with a stunning 25m indoor-outdoor pool and sweeping sea views as well as Mandarin Oriental’s signature wellness therapies in specially designed indoor treatment rooms and outdoor pavilions.
“We are delighted to be opening our first property in Greece in Costa Navarino and look forward to sharing this striking combination of unspoiled landscape, olive groves, pristine beaches and authentic Greek culture in the region with our guests,” said James Riley, group chief executive of Mandarin Oriental.
Navarino Bay is already home to The Bay Course, an 18-hole signature golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones II, as well as the award-winning earth-sheltered Bay Clubhouse.
Guests of Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino will also benefit from the destination’s other resort areas, and experience a vast range of outdoor activities, from biking and hiking to rock-climbing, tennis and water sports, as well as three more signature golf courses.
A variety of dining venues and leisure activities are available across Navarino Dunes and Navarino Waterfront.
Moreover, Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino will be adjacent to Navarino Agora, an open marketplace with retail, artisanal street food, open-air cinema, and authentic local experiences during day and night.
