    Hotel description

    Set on the beautiful bay of Dunes Beach in Messinia on the west coast of the Pelopponese peninsular, the Romanos Luxury Resort was awarded Best Leisure Hotel in Europe by the Conde Nast Travel Awards in 2011.
    As part of the Costa Navarino Resort along with The Westin, this beautiful hotel has access to all the facilities within the Agora Village which is central to the whole area, including the two superb children’s clubs and all the sporting facilities from the Dive Centre to the 18-hole golf course. Guests are encouraged to explore the natural beauty of the area and to learn about the natural habitats of the diverse wildlife of this region. The hotel has its own vineyards scattered on the hillsides just 600 metres from the sea and also produces its own olive oil. Find out more about active family holidays to The Romanos.
    There are two excellent children’s clubs which offer full day and half day sessions: The Cocoon Club caters for infants and toddlers from 8 months to 4 years old and focuses very much on imaginative learning and playing, singing and dancing, painting, collage and story telling. The children play and learn in age groups from 8 – 18 months and from 18 months to 4 year olds. The Sandcastle Club caters for children from 4 to 12 years old and offers a range of activities from table games to painting and exploring the surrounding countryside extending their knowledge of the local area and culture.

The spa uses natural ingredients gathered from the surrounding area and there are both indoor and outdoor treatment areas, hydrotherapy and floating pools. The spa even offers treatments specifically designed for children.

    Navarino Bay was the scene of the famous 1827 naval battle in which an allied British, French and Russian armada defeated the Turkish-Egyptian fleet marking a decisive turning point in the Greek War of Independence. This was the last major naval battle in the world fought entirely with sailing ships. 5 mins by car – reachable on foot.
    The Palace of Nestor is only 13kms away and is a unique two-storey Mycenean palace which was discovered in 1939. This is where the first evidence of the first known written language, Linear B, was discovered.
    Ancient Messini was built in 369 BC and is about 55kms away. The site is still being unearthed by archeologists, but it is possible to visit the gymnasium, the theatre and one of the best preserved ancient stadiums still in existence.
