Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has announced that it will manage a new luxury hotel in Costa Navarino, Greece, scheduled to open in Spring 2023.
The group’s first property in Greece, Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino will be located on the southwest coast of the Peloponnese, one of the most unspoiled and breath-taking landscapes in the Mediterranean, and 45 minutes’ drive from Kalamata International Airport.
The beachfront resort will be part of Costa Navarino, a well-established tourism destination. It will comprise 99 guest rooms, including 48 pool villas, all with outdoor terraces and sea views, along with five restaurants and bars.
The 1,500 sq m wellness facilities will feature a stunning 25m indoor-outdoor pool that has magnificent bay views and the Group’s signature wellness therapies with both indoor treatment rooms and outdoor pavilions. The guest experience will be further enhanced by its proximity to the destination’s leisure activities, water sports, biking and rock-climbing, as well as four signature golf courses designed by Bernhard Langer, Robert Trent Jones II and José María Olazábal.
The project is owned and developed by TEMES, a leading developer and operator of high-end tourism and real estate destinations in Greece.
“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.”
“Mandarin Oriental is known for delivering exemplary service and exclusive experiences in its many luxury properties around the world”, said Achilles V. Constantakopoulos, Chairman of TEMES. “We are proud to have the Group bring their hospitality expertise to Greece for the first time, signifying the further growth of Costa Navarino, which is becoming a top international destination for people to visit and to live.”
