Costa Navarino, Greece
Where to Stay
At Costa Navarino, you have four excellent accommodation options - The Westin Resort, Costa Navarino, The Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort, W Costa Navarino and Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino.
The Westin Resort, Costa Navarino
The Westin Resort, Costa Navarino has been voted one of the best resorts in Greece and one of the foremost holiday destinations in Europe. The location is simply stunning. Boasting impressive views over the Ionian Sea with direct access to a wonderful 1.5km long sandy beach.
The rooms here are both luxurious and spacious ranging from 40sqm to 80sqm that offer Garden or Sea Views. In the summer season I would highly recommend the infinity rooms allowing you to enjoy your very own private pool which is also great value.
The Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort
If you are looking for further luxury then The Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort, certainly ticks all the boxes. This Luxury Collection Resort offers deluxe rooms, suites and villas ranging from 43m² to 192m² along with the magnificent 630m² Royal Villa Methoni and 660m2 Royal Villa Koroni. The Romanos sits adjacent to the Westin and both hotels enjoy the same bars and restaurants. The Romanos is only open from May to October.
W Costa Navarino
The 5-star W Costa Navarino is an exciting hotel located in the Costa Navarino Waterfront area. Very close to the beach and boasting the Parelia beach club which is the must-visit destination in the area too.
The hotel has a selection of guest rooms, suites and villas and excellent bar and restaurant options.
Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino
Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino is one of the most luxurious hotels in Europe overlooking Navarino Bay. The hotel is designed to blend in with its native environment and does subtly emerge from the landscape surrounded by flora and fauna which adds to the feeling of serenity and warmth within the resort. It is a very unique and stunning resort with an understated and relaxed feel throughout.
The dining experience at Navarino is extensive. With 13 restaurants, 4 bars, lounges and 3 pool bars, Navarino Dunes ensures a fine dining experience for all tastes. If you enjoy a really good steak, I would highly recommend the Flame restaurant at the Dunes Clubhouse, it's not to be missed!
I would also recommend you visit their picturesque village about 5 mins away to discover traditional Messinian cooking. These are authentic family recipes and definitely worth trying at least once during your trip to experience traditional Greek cuisine.
Golf at Costa Navarino
You have four excellent golf courses to choose from, all offering a different challenge making Navarino a true golf holiday destination. The variety on offer will truly put Navarino as one of the finest golfing destinations in Europe.
The Dunes Course is the first signature golf course in Greece and currently holds the number 1 spot! Designed by former Ryder Cup Captain Bernard Langer it’s easy to see why people rave about this course. Much of it has been shaped to create the ambience of a links course with undulating greens and steep faced pot bunkers. Fairways are generous so it's all about being strategic and avoiding those bunkers!
The Bay Course was designed by renowned course architect Robert Trent Jones Jnr and is situated 10km away from the hotel. It gives some breathtaking views around the bay of which it takes its name. This course is different than the Dunes but still so much fun to play. The course is certainly shorter, greens much less undulating but has plenty of elevation changes which allows you to experience some wonderful views of the Bay and Ionian Sea. Buggies are mandatory here due to some of the steep climbs.
The Hills Course is a simply magnificent golf course and must play during your golf holiday at Costa Navarino Resort. The golf course sits above the coastline offering stunning views across the resort.
International Olympic Academy Golf Course is located within the prestigious Navarino Hills area of the Costa Navarino Resort, the course enjoys a terrific position with views for miles over Navarino Bay. The course was designed by two-time Masters champion and Ryder Cup legend Jose Maria Olazabal as a nod to golf's return to the Olympic games to encourage more people to take up the game.
Costa Navarino Facilities
Costa Navarino has plenty to offer onsite other than golf with an impressive 13 racquet courts, race track, basketball court and several indoor and outdoor swimming pools. They also have an Aqua park which is very fun and popular with families.
The Spa at Costa Navarino is also very impressive with a full range of specialty spa treatments based on health and beauty practices of ancient Greece which make full use of the region’s exclusive natural and revitalizing ingredients, as well as an extensive range of luxury spa products from around the globe.
The resort hosts various classes each morning and they are at set times and free. Golfers can use the ‘warm up’ class and then the stretching class after they finish.
Finally in the courtyard where you will find many of their fine a la carte restaurants is an outdoor cinema playing classic films every evening.
Costa Navarino Top Tips
• Take the half board as you get credit towards each a la carte restaurant and ensure you book your preferred restaurants soon after arrival.
• If you have a spare afternoon, get a taxi into town and enjoy the truly authentic Greek culture.
Flights to Costa Navarino
From March to November, you will fly into Kalamata which is approx 45mins from the hotel. In the low season you would fly to Athens and it's around 2.5 hours transfer to the hotel. With the Navarino area getting larger, we expect an increase of flight options to Kalamata in the near future.
