The Mandarin Oriental brand is synonymous with luxury, and their newly announced hotel at Costa Navarino is set to be a sure-fit hit with those who enjoy the highest standards of accommodation. Located in Greece, the facility officially opens in Spring 2023 and we felt compelled to whet your appetites.
Imagine the sun rising on the Peloponnese region of the Mediterranean and taking a swim in the Bay of Navarino. You then stroll up the pristine beach to have breakfast in the luxurious Mandarin Oriental hotel. In 2023 this could be you when the hotel located in one and forty hectares of natural habitat opens.
The Mandarin oriental at Costa Navarino will be on the beachfront and have ninety-nine rooms; Forty-eight of these will be pool villas featuring outdoor terraces with fantastic views of the Med.
Tombazis & Associates Architects and K-Studio, renowned Greek companies, will create premium facilities, including five restaurants and bars. The hotel will feature planted roofs blending into the land’s natural topography and using local materials. Sustainability will be at the heart of the project and low impact on the environment.
A 1,500 m2 spa and fitness centre with a stunning twenty-five-metre indoor-outdoor pool will augment the outdoor exercise that will be possible, from hiking, swimming and much more. In the spa, you can participate in the heat experiences and Mandarin Oriental’s signature wellness therapies in specially designed outdoor pavilions and indoor treatment rooms.
