The Costa Navarino coastline in southern Greece will get a new luxury hotel this summer with Marriott International announcing plans to open a W hotel — an addition to the upscale chain’s portfolio of 52 hotels worldwide.
W Costa Navarino will be a 32-acre beachfront destination located in the region of Messinia in the southwest Peloponnese.
“Designed by renowned Greek architects, Tombazis and Associates Architects, W Costa Navarino is inspired by the region’s traditional residential areas and set to use local, natural materials such as stone, wood and reed,” read a press release by Marriott International.
The statement says the hotel will feature 246 stylish rooms, suites and villas — many with private pools staged in the Bay of Navarino with stunning Ionian Sea views.
Marriott’s announcement included a promotional video showcasing the forthcoming hotel.
‘‘We are thrilled to build on our fantastic relationship with TEMES S.A. to open W Costa Navarino, strengthening Marriott International’s presence in this Mediterranean paradise,” said Candice D’Cruz, Marriott International’s Vice President – Luxury Brands, Europe, Middle East & Africa.
“Joining our portfolio of coveted W Escapes around the world, W Costa Navarino will add a distinct take on modern luxury to Navarino Waterfront,” D’Cruz said. “We look forward to welcoming free-spirited travelers to this new luxury playground.”
W Costa Navarino will also offer five dining venues including a destination beach club overlooking a long sandy shore, designed by Athens-based K-Studio. The ‘Culinary Square’ is the hotel’s playful take on a deli food market with individual outlets creating a socially driven destination for all-day dining.
Other planned amenities include a sunset bar and the signature W Living Room. Guests will also be able to enjoy experiences and dining at neighboring venues in Costa Navarino including the new Navarino Agora, an open marketplace with retail, street food, open-air cinema and programming throughout the day and night.
“W Costa Navarino will generate a unique energy encouraging free expression and connection between a diverse mix of people, whilst respecting and honoring authentic experiences and cultures,” TEMES S.A. Chairman Achilles V. Constantakopoulos said. “In this important chapter for the growth of the destination, we believe W Costa Navarino will significantly contribute to our vision in further establishing Messinia as a top international destination to visit and to live.”
Tennis courts and a water sports hub are part of the vision for guests to enjoy at W Costa Navarino, along with access to the destination’s four signature golf courses and an array of outdoor activities including biking, hiking, rock-climbing and sailing.
Costa Navarino currently has two Marriott International properties: The Westin Resort Costa Navarino, offering travelers and families various wellness activities, and The Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort, featuring scenic architecture, butler service and epicurean experiences.
