Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino opened on August 15th, marking the Hong Kong-based hotel group’s debut in Greece.

The resort was developed in collaboration with TEMES, a developer renowned for its commitment to sustainability. Tombazis & Associates Architects and K Studio combined creativity and craftsmanship to ensure every aspect of the resort maximized its extraordinary location and views.

Nestled in the hillside of Navarino Bay on the southwest coast of the Peloponnese, Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino features a bioclimatic design utilizing locally-sourced materials and green living concepts.
