• Overview

    The Romanos Hotel, Costa Navarino,

    Set amid lush olive groves overlooking the storied waters of the Ionian Sea, the stunning Romanos Hotel offers luxury rooms and facilities. The entire environment of the hotel is attractively appointed to create a distinctive and inspiring atmosphere of authentic luxury and heartfelt hospitality of the Peloponnese region. Recognised as one of the finest resorts in Greece, The Romanos was honored at the Condé Nast Traveler Readers Travel Awards in 2011, 2012, 2013 as well as 2017. It was the first Greek hotel to be named “Favorite Overseas Leisure Hotel: Europe and Asia Minor”. The Romanos Resort also took fourth place in the World’s Top 100 list of experiences. The hotel awarded for best design at the European Hotel Design Awards 2010 in the category “Best Suite, Interior Design of the Year” also featured among the “Best Hotels in Europe” at Condé Nast Traveller’s Gold List 2020. Firmly established as one of the top resorts in Greece, The Romanos Resort guarantees a memorable stay in an enchanting setting and is a fitting way to bring our 2022 Costa Navarino experience to a close.

    The Dune Golf  Course

    The impressive seaside Dunes Golf Course was designed by former two times US Masters Champion and Ryder Cup captain Bernhard Langer in association with European Golf Design. The championship course, set in a landscape of diverse topography with spectacular sea and river views, incorporates some links-style features in areas closest to the sea, with tall dunes dividing some of the holes adjacent to the golden beach. Parts of the course venture into olive and fruit groves, while some holes run along a small river that meanders through the site.

    The Bay Golf Course

    Just a few minutes from Navarino Dunes, at the Navarino Bay development, the Navarino Bay Golf Course offers an alternative set of challenges and choices in a quite different setting. Designed by internationally acclaimed architect Robert Trent Jones Jr, the par 70 course places a greater emphasis on strategic play and positional golf than The Dunes Course. The Seaside, Canyon, and Grove holes provide striking contrasts that create a dramatic and memorable golf round.

    The Olympic Course

    Named as the ‘World’s Best New Golf Development’ at the 2020 World Golf Awards, the Costa Navarino Olympic Course has been one of Europe’s most eagerly awaited golf developments. One of the two new golf courses at Navarino Hills, the course is home to the first International Olympic Academy Golf Course in the world. Situated over 125 hectares overlooking the historic Bay of Navarino and the Ionian Sea, the International Olympic Academy Golf Course measures 6,366m in length and opened exclusively for the 5th Messinia Pro-Am which took place from the 24th to the 27th of November 2021.

    The Hills Course

    The two new courses at the Costa Navarino Resort, the Olympic Course and the Hills Course opened in the 2022, and already have rave reviews. Designed by two-time Masters champion and Ryder Cup legend José Marίa Olazábal, and set above the coastline, the courses offer panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, the Bay of Navarino and the Ionian Sea. Olazábal’s signature golf courses extend the world-class golf offering of Costa Navarino and further enhance a unique year-round destination blessed with an ideal climate, lush seaside landscape and direct access. Navarino Hills will also boost Costa Navarino’s position as one of the world’s most environmentally friendly golf destinations, complementing the signature golf courses The Dunes Course and The Bay Course. With four golf courses, each with a different concept, from a more easy-to-play course for amateurs and leisure guests to more challenging courses for pros and veterans, Costa Navarino enhances the overall golf experience and furthers its standing among the top golf destinations in Europe.
