Mandarin Oriental is making its debut in Greece with the opening of a beachfront resort at Costa Navarino, the sustainably driven destination in Messenia, southwest Peloponnese. Located amid the natural beauty of the region, Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino blends traditional Messenian elements with contemporary luxury.
The resort's bioclimatic design utilizes locally sourced materials and embraces green living concepts, drawing inspiration from local agricultural traditions and the region's rich cultural heritage. Each of the 99 suites and earth-sheltered villas come with spacious terraces and private pools, respectively, complete with handcrafted living spaces.
With five distinct restaurant and bar concepts to choose from, Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino offers a diverse array of dining options overseen by Chef Bertrand Valegeas. The Oliviera Restaurant, with views of the bay, offers a selection of "redefined" and authentic Greek cuisine; another concept to highlight is Tahir Restaurant, open for dinner reservations, which focuses on Levantine cuisine, with healthy mezze dishes sourced from local farms.
The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino, is inspired by the group’s oriental traditions and offers a wide range of holistic treatments. The 80-foot swimming pool, which traverses from indoor to outdoor, offers bay views, while the Hammam, cold bath and herbal sauna provide detoxifying experiences. The resort additionally offers a fitness center with a team of trainers, plus a beach club offering a variety of water activities, from paddleboarding to water skiing. Cultural enthusiasts can choose from olive oil tastings, traditional cooking classes and visits to many local historical sites, while golfers will appreciate the 18-hole Bay Course and its coastal views that surround the resort, as well as three further signature golf courses across the destination.
Moreover, Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino is located next to the recently opened Navarino Agora, a marketplace with curated retail, dining venues, artisanal street food, an open-air cinema, and an event program celebrating the local culture and traditions.
Tip: To celebrate this opening, Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino is offering a "Be the First to Stay" package, offering guests exclusive benefits including daily breakfast, resort credit, and more.
