Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group and TEMES S.A., a leading developer and operator in high-end tourism and real estate, will introduce the first Mandarin Oriental property in Greece, at Costa Navarino in spring 2023.
Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino will be located at Navarino Bay, an integrated resort area at Costa Navarino, in the region of Messinia, southwest Peloponnese, in a 140-hectare natural landscape, overlooking the historic Bay of Navarino.
The beachfront luxury resort will feature 99 guestrooms, including 48 spacious earth-sheltered pool villas, all with outdoor terraces and sea views, along with five restaurants and bars.
Crafted by Greek architects, Tombazis & Associates Architects and K-Studio, the resort’s design is aligned with Costa Navarino’s sustainable principles, featuring planted roofs blending into the natural topography of the land and the use of local materials.
In addition, the property is set to feature a 16,000+ square-foot spa and fitness center with a 25-meter indoor-outdoor pool, state-of-the-art heat experiences, and 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. “We are pleased to partner with TEMES, the group that has been responsible for the creation of Costa Navarino as a burgeoning tourism destination.”
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, which harmoniously blends into the lush landscape, overlooking the Bay of Navarino.
Guests of the new resort will also benefit from the availability in the area of 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. Additionally, a variety of dining venues and leisure activities are offered across Navarino Dunes and Navarino Waterfront. In addition, the property will be adjacent to Navarino Agora, an open marketplace with retail, artisanal street food, open-air cinema, and authentic local experiences by day and night.
