Mandarin Oriental to debut in Greece next spring

Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group will open its first property in Greece in spring 2023.

The beachfront resort will be located within Navarino Bay, an integrated resort area in Costa Navarino in the region of Messenia in the southwest Peloponnese. 

It will feature 99 guest rooms, including 48 spacious pool villas, all with outdoor terraces and sea views. There will also be five restaurants and bars and a large spa and fitness centre with an indoor-outdoor pool, state-of-the-art heat experiences and the brand’s signature wellness therapies in specially designed indoor treatment rooms and outdoor pavilions. 

Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino has been sustainably designed by Greek architects, featuring local materials and planted roofs blending into the natural topography of the land.

Navarino Bay is also home to The Bay Course, an 18-hole signature golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones II, and the Bay Clubhouse, which overlooks the Bay of Navarino.

The wider Costa Navarino area includes Navarino Dunes, home to The Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort, and The Westin Resort Costa Navarino, and Navarino Waterfront, where a W Costa Navarino is expected to open this summer.

Guests of Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino will be able to enjoy a range of outdoor activities, including biking, hiking, rock-climbing, tennis and water sports. The hotel will also be adjacent to Navarino Agora, an open marketplace with retail, artisanal street food, an open-air cinema and authentic local experiences.

“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 bourgeoning tourism destination.” 

TEMES chairman Achilles V. Constantakopoulos added: “Mandarin Oriental is renowned for delivering exemplary service and exclusive experiences in some of the most noted properties around the world. 

“We are proud to have the group bring their hospitality expertise for the first time to Greece, signifying the further growth of Costa Navarino, which is becoming a top international destination to visit and to live”.
