Mandarin Oriental Costa Navarino : A Look Inside 

Mandarin Oriental has brought its renowned hospitality to Greece for the first time with the opening of an exquisite beach front resort at Costa Navarino. A sustainably driven destination in the Mediterranean, Costa Navarino is set directly on the shores of Navarino Bay. Just a short stroll from the charming village of Gialova, on the southwest coast of the Peloponnese, one of the most unspoiled and breathtaking landscapes in the region.

Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino subtly emerges from an idyllic Mediterranean landscape, offering mesmerising views of the surrounding countryside and sparkling azure sea. Graced with a breathtaking seaside landscape, this region is shaped by 4,500 years of history. At Costa Navarino, the traditional Messenian elements blend seamlessly with contemporary luxury.

Developed in collaboration with TEMES, a leading developer renowned for their commitment to sustainability. The design team is Tombazis & Associates Architects

Enveloped by lush green hills adorned with olive trees, Costa Navarino features 99 light-filled suites and earthsheltered villas. Inspired by both the beauty of the Messenian landscape and the idyllic colours of the Mediterranean, elegant interiors combine peaceful earthy tones, complete with contemporary decor and locally sourced, handcrafted elements that echo the warmth of the Peloponnese. All accommodations boast floor-to-ceiling windows, a terrace, or balcony, while the villas also feature private pools.


Costa Navarino offers a selection of five unique restaurant and bar concepts.
