Mandarin Oriental is set to open its first resort in Greece this summer – the Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino. Located in the southwest Peloponnese, this beachfront resort is a sustainably-driven destination that encompasses more than 1,000 hectares of natural beauty.

The resort features 99 suites and villas with private pools and terraces that blends modern luxuries with the traditional Messenian style of the region. The décor and interiors celebrate the natural beauty of Messenia, featuring local Mediterranean plants, earthy undertones, and gentle splashes of color, creating a soothing and welcoming environment. The resort's design also incorporates 19th-century Greek design motifs and reflects the surrounding historical sites.

Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino has been built to the developer’s rigorous sustainable specifications, with more than 4,000 replanted olive trees and over 500,000 planted native shrubs. The resort is also single-use plastic-free throughout the complex, as part of Mandarin Oriental's deeply ingrained corporate responsibility ethos.

Dining is a key feature of the resort experience, with five restaurants and bars featuring twists on classic Greek dishes while providing a wide variety of international cuisines. In line with its sustainable commitment, ingredients used in the dishes are locally and sustainably sourced.

The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino offers wellness and beauty treatments inspired by the Group’s traditional rituals from the Far East and the flora of Greece. Guests can enjoy a variety of private treatment rooms, heat and water experiences, and a 25m swimming pool that flows indoors to outdoors with views of the bay and the sunsets. Wellness experts are also on hand for tailor-made fitness experiences, with yoga, nutrition advice, tennis coaching, and intelligent movement programs included.

Water experiences are available from the beach club, including paddleboards and water skiing, with an expansive swimming pool with relaxation decks just steps from the beach. Golf aficionados will appreciate the 18-hole designer golf course that surrounds the resort, as well as three further designer golf courses across Costa Navarino.

Guests will have access to a wide array of activities offered across Costa Navarino’s extensive sites, such as tennis, biking, hiking, yachting, and a watersports hub, as well as a variety of dining venues. The nearby Navarino Agora, an open-air marketplace, will further enrich the experience with its curated retail, artisanal street food, an open-air cinema, and an exciting event programme celebrating and showcasing local culture and traditions.
