Situated next to The Dunes beach, The Westin Resort is nestled along a timeless stretch of Greek coast fringed with sandy beaches and azure waters for snorkelling and swimming. Costa Navarino is in the south-west Peloponnese, a peninsula that edges into the Ionian Sea and contains a wealth of natural wonders, from lush forests to rugged mountains. The resort itself is close to the likes of Ancient Olympia, a 90-minute drive, and Kalamata, less than an hour, which has its own airport.
Anazoe Spa has a unique atmosphere, created by a classical-meets-contemporary design, and signature treatments that are influenced by Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine. This serene sanctuary offers a range of healing remedies and pampering techniques, using herbs and oils from the surrounding lands, and has indoor and outdoor areas for absorbing light and natural energies. The Health Club also has its own 18m pool, gym, whirpool and steam rooms.
The Dunes Course is Greece’s first signature golf course, designed by two-time US Masters Champion Bernhard Langer in association with European Golf Design. Set in diverse natural scenery with spectacular sea and river views, it takes its name from the tall dunes that separate several holes from a golden beach. The Bay Course, designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Jr., offers panoramic sea and mountain views, with two holes playing along the historic Bay of Navarino. The course meanders through three contrasting natural landscapes that make for a dramatic and memorable round. The fabulous layouts and immaculate condition of both courses have been recognized by a series of awards, including “Best Newcomers” (2014) and “Best Service” (2015) from the World of Leading Golf. These accolades recently culminated in the prestigious title of “European Golf Resort of the Year 2017”, awarded by the global golf tourism association IAGTO.
The Westin’s Heavenly Bed will ensure a restful night’s sleep, and when you awake to views of the sea, or the sprawling gardens and pool, you’ll enjoy the start to every day here. Spacious rooms are decorated in neutral tones that reflect the sea and sky. Bathrooms have separate shower and tub.

You can also book the Royal Villa Methoni, a three-bedroom abode just a stroll from the beach.
