Costa Navarino Getting Ready to Welcome Mandarin Oriental Brand in Greece this Summer
The first Mandarin Oriental property in Greece is getting ready to open its doors at Costa Navarino, the prime sustainable destination in the southwest Peloponnese.
A well-respected Asian hotel company that evolved into a global brand, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group today is an award-winning owner and operator of some of the world’s most luxurious hotels, resorts and residences.
The Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino is nestled amidst a breathtaking landscape in Navarino Bay, offering impressive views of the surrounding countryside and the historic bay of Navarino.
The beachfront retreat features 99 suites and earth-sheltered villas with private pools and spacious terraces. The property’s design has been inspired from the local architectural heritage.
The resort’s interiors embrace the natural beauty of Messinia, with accents featuring local plants, earthy undertones, and gentle splashes of color. The decor celebrates aspects of 19th-century Greek design and reflects the surrounding historical sites, providing the inspiration for motifs and wood carvings.
A natural, terracotta color palette creates a soothing and welcoming environment with custom-designed furniture, floor-to-ceiling windows, and state-of-the-art entertainment technology. Rugs in the suites and villas are also inspired by the weaving of traditional Greek dress.
Aligned with Costa Navarino’s sustainable development principles, the Navarino Bay site features 2,700 replanted olive trees and over 500,000 planted native shrubs. The new resort was built according to Costa Navarino’s rigorous environmental specifications, keeping with Mandarin Oriental’s deeply ingrained corporate responsibility ethos.
Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino also features earth-sheltered villas blending into the natural topography of the land and utilizes local materials. As with all Mandarin Oriental hotels, it will be single use plastic free throughout the complex.
Dining, wellness and sports experiences
A creative and exciting dining concept awaits guests at Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino. The resort has five restaurants and bars that redefine authentic Greek traditions, honor local culture and provide a wide variety of original flavors from international cuisines. The resort’s chefs are committed to sourcing local ingredients from Messinia and delivering a unique gastronomic experience overseen by Chef Bertrand Valegeas.
The ultra-premium resort also features a 1,500 m2 spa and fitness center with a stunning 25m swimming pool that flows indoors to outdoors with views of the breathtaking sunset across the bay and Mandarin Oriental’s signature wellness therapies in specially designed indoor treatment rooms and outdoor pavilions.
Costa Navarino is home to a wide array of sports. Golf afficionados will hone their game at the 18-hole Bay Course that surrounds the resort, as well as across the destination’s three further signature golf courses in Navarino Dunes and Navarino Hills.
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 and tennis at the Mouratoglou Tennis Center and water sports at the brand-new Watersports Hub located at 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.
TEMES: Costa Navarino is a year-round destination
“The highly anticipated Greek debut of Mandarin Oriental both adds to and complements the existing hospitality offering of Costa Navarino,” according to TEMES S.A., the developer of Costa Navarino.
With a total of four distinct sites featuring five-star hotels, signature golf courses, private residences, more than 40 dining venues, and an abundance of sports and entertainment experiences, Costa Navarino has established Messinia as a place to visit as well as to live.
According to TEMES, 2023 will be a milestone year for the destination, with its largest offering to date for its guests and residents.
