About the hotel
W Costa Navarino redefines the hospitality experience; a truly inclusive space where everyone is welcome, and all needs are catered for. With an eye for the unconventional and a flair for the unexpected, the new Escape is a place for free-spirited, young-at-heart, social and thought-provoking individuals who celebrate unique traits and choices.
From the moment guests arrive, they will be greeted by views directly to the sea and a sense of immersion in nature. The entire property is designed as a Greek coastal village—but imbued with W’s modern soul. Reflecting Costa Navarino’s dedication to sustainably promoting the local culture and heritage, each structure complements the natural beachfront setting, while the overall aesthetic design is inspired by Greek handicrafts filtered through a prism of fresh and modern beach living. There is also an emphasis on the authenticity of construction materials, including local stone and timber from the Mani region.
Contemporary art, with its surprising and often challenging views of the ordinary, is both revealing and refreshing. At W Costa Navarino, art is not simply decoration but a means to explore, escape, engage with, and contemplate.
The beating heart of W Costa Navarino is the Beach Club. A place with unmistakably Greek DNA, where local and international DJs amp up the vibes that create a natural transition from casual beach life to high-intensity, late-night dance events. The bar serves signature cocktails crafted with local herbs and natural ingredients, while the restaurant offers Greek-inspired dishes prepared with regional produce that captures the epitome of Mediterranean cuisine. At sunset, the Beach Club transforms into a place for reflection—and anticipation of the night ahead—with pop-up happenings by the pier. In a word, this fusion of music, food, beach lifestyle and social opportunity creates a high-energy atmosphere that simply must be lived.
