Description & Location
The Romanos – A Luxury Collection Resort – is located on a quiet stretch of beach on the west coast of the Peloponnese region, 170 miles from Athens (an interesting scenic 3 hour drive). Built on on an extensive private estate leading down to an expansive stretch of dune beach. The entire hotel has been built to reflect a traditional regional atmosphere with the highest quality.
The Romanos is a totally self-contained resort sharing many leisure facilities with its neighbouring sister property, The Westin.
The nearest airport is Kalamata, 45 minutes transfer to the hotel. See footnote on travel.
The 321 rooms and suites are beautifully decorated, spacious and contemporary, with a choice of deluxe room, junior suites and speciality suites, mostly sea facing albeit from a distance. Most of the rooms and suites on the ground floor have their own plunge pools.
Facilities & Activities
Facilities shared with the Westin. Numerous restaurants of differing cuisine styles located between the two hotels at the Agora Village centre, Greek style amphitheater for evening entertainment, open air cinema, Navarino Dunes championship golf courses (proof of handicap required February to April and September/November *), tennis courts, fantastic spa with olive oil – allegedly discovered in the nearby Palace of Nestor – a feature of many of the treatments, and a host of eco-friendly touring options including one of the largest off-road bike hire stations ever seen in a hotel! Romanos guests can use all of the facilities throughout the resort, including the swimming pools at the Westin, but it does not apply vice versa.
Fantastic Anazoe Spa, located in the central area between the hotel and neighbouring Romanos. Award winning and one of the most acclaimed in the entire region. Olive oil – allegedly discovered in the nearby Palace of Nestor – is a feature of many of the treatments. Although many of the treatments are adult focused, some can also be tailored to younger teens as well. The Anazoe Spa won 2 2014 Spa Travellers Award for “Best International Family-Friendly Spa” and “Best International New / Refurbished Spa”.
Golf – Two championship courses. During the months Feb to April and Sept/ Nov proof of 36 handicap required for men / ladies. Allowances will be made for 36/54 handicap but with restricted tee off times. No handicap restriction other periods.
There are two clubs for children – Cocoon which is located at the Romanos and is suited for the younger ones, and for those of a more confident nature and 5 years up, Sandcastles at The Westin which has to be one of the very best clubs. In addition to the water park with slides, you have climbing areas, a separate swimming pool, a games arcade, indoor sports hall and even a relaxed Deli style restaurant, with a fun menu, juke box and adjacent bowling alley. Depending on the season and occupancy, a separate teens club, probably in the peak summer months when additional coaching facilities will also be available.
Travel Note – There are weekly flights on Thomas Cook Airlines directly Gatwick to Kalamata April to October. EasyJet fly twice weekly from May to October. Alternatively you can fly via Athens and then have a road transfer to the resort (3 hours). If you would like to stay in Athens for a few days, we suggest Hotel Grande Bretagne for its quality and central location. Ask us for suggestions.
In addition to the direct flight option to Kalamata once weekly, there is now a twice daily coach shuttle to and from Athens airport which considerably assists flexibility and duration options – the journey will take approx 3 hours, ask us for details.
