“W Hotels ignites a renewed sense of curiosity in Greece with the launch of W Costa Navarino”, said Candice D’ Cruz, Vice President – Luxury Brands, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Marriott International.
W Costa Navarino marks the latest addition to the ever-expanding W Escapes portfolio in Europe following locations in Spain, Switzerland and Portugal.

The new W Escape is set within a scenic 13-hectare site, along a 450-metre-long sandy beach, overlooking the protected and historic Bay of Navarino.
Local authenticity meets modernity in refined design
With architectural design led by renowned Greek architects Tombazis and Associates, W Costa Navarino takes inspiration from the region’s traditional architecture with cobbled paths, monolithic building and stone towers creating the feeling of a Greek coastal village.
Using local materials, Costa Navarino’s dedication to sustainable practices is reflected in the hotel’s timeless design, unified within lush indigenous greenery and planted roofs overlooking the sea.
The interiors is all 246 guestrooms, suites and villas celebrate the heritage of Greek artisans with a palette of neutral tones which are occasionally met with pops of colour.
