Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has announced that it will manage a new luxury hotel in Costa Navarino, 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, and 45 minutes’ drive from Kalamata International Airport.

The beachfront resort will have 99 guestrooms, including 48 pool villas, all with outdoor terraces and sea views. Five restaurants and bars will also be available. The 16,145-square-foot wellness facilities will be home to an 80-foot indoor/outdoor pool with bay views, besides the group’s signature wellness therapies with both indoor treatment rooms and outdoor pavilions. The guest experience will be elevated 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 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, in a press release. “We are pleased to partner with TEMES, the group that has been responsible for the creation of Costa Navarino as a bourgeoning tourism destination.”
