W Costa Navarino, the first W Hotels brand property in Greece, is scheduled to open this summer.
Marriott International, Inc. has signed an agreement with TEMES S.A., a leading developer and operator in high-end tourism and real estate, to debut the brand at Navarino Waterfront, the new, 13-hectare integrated beachfront resort destination on Messinia’s Costa Navarino in the southwest Peloponnese.
The property’s opening will mark the latest addition to the ever-expanding W Escapes portfolio in Europe following locations in Spain, Switzerland, and Portugal.
The resort is expected to feature 246 rooms, suites, and villas, many with private pools. It is also set to offer five dining venues including a destination beach club overlooking a long sandy shore, designed by Athens-based K-Studio, and “The Culinary Square,” a playful take on a deli food market with individual outlets creating a destination for all-day dining.
Other planned amenities include a sunset bar and the signature W Living Room as well as tennis courts and a water sports hub. Guests will also have access to the destination’s four signature golf courses.
“We are thrilled to build on our fantastic relationship with TEMES S.A. to open W Costa Navarino, strengthening Marriott International’s presence in this Mediterranean paradise,” said Candice D.Cruz, vice-president of Luxury Brands, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Marriott International. “Joining our portfolio of W Escapes around the world, W Costa Navarino will add a distinct take on modern luxury to Navarino Waterfront.”
“W Costa Navarino will generate a unique energy encouraging free expression and connection between a diverse mix of people, whilst respecting and honouring authentic experiences and cultures,” said Achilles V. Constantakopoulos, chairman, TEMES S.A. “In this important chapter for the growth of the destination, we believe W Costa Navarino will significantly contribute to our vision in further establishing Messinia as a top international destination to visit and to live.”
