Did the ancient Greek royalty play golf? Have spa days? I would assume that they at least ate splendidly. No matter. At The Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort you will be treated to an experience that would make the ancient Greek royalty jealous.
It’s not by chance that the ancient Greek royalty had the white-sand beaches of Messinia as their stomping ground. It’s not by chance yet again that the Peloponnese region, is about to have their second grandiosity. The new 321-room Romanos luxury hotel is the first of an eco-conscious, four-resort development named Costa Navarino.
The whitewashed, 321-acre property, virtually invisible from the beach alongside it, has a golf course that’s irrigated with rainwater, and 80 percent of the property will operate on solar power by 2012. Don’t let this eco conscious approach fool you, Romanos also about indulging. Indulging the mind and the senses, the body and the taste buds. Each of the 32 light-filled suites has a private pool, and the breakfast spread includes five types of local honey. I bet the ancient Greek royalty would be jealous of that spread.
If you are seeking a room with views of the ocean from the infinity pool and from the bathrooms’ soaking tub, or if you wish to gaze at the sea (or the stars) in any weather, ask to book rooms 1309, 1310, and 1311.
Insider Tip: The hotel’s four-star cuisine is great but if your looking to do as the Greeks, then grab a souvlaki or gyro at the hotel’s Souvlakerie stand, then munch on it while watching live local performances or soccer matches at the open-air cinema in the Agora—the hotel’s central square.
And if all this luxury is a tad bit to overwhelming then skip over to the westin resort costa navarino right next door. However, beware the ancient Greeks will be frowning upon you from the heavens above.
