This is one of the world’s most outstanding experiences

We loved every part of our experience. The hotel is stunning. The service is exceptional and the views, surroundings and weather are gorgeous. We travel a lot and to some incredible and unique locations around the world. This was one of the best experiences we have ever had. The people are incredibly friendly, thoughtful and talented. Fantastic.

Magic in the Mani

Magic in the Mani
Incredible setting with rugged cliffs towering behind and deep blue sea stretching out in front. The Tower has been restored to retain it’s original character and the use of top quality fittings and the overall decor is in harmony with the building. The food , much of it sourced locally was exceptional as was the service and attention to detail. The Chef Saki’s was an intricate part of the whole Tainaron Blue experience. We give this place our highest recommendation. Stayed June 2015, traveled as a couple.

Ομολογώ…

Ομολογώ…
Ομολογώ είχα ξεχάσει. Μου τα θύμισε πρώτα πρώτα η πέτρα. Έστεκε παντού γύρω μας αγέρωχη, ανίκητη. Σταματούσε τη θάλασσα, ύψωνε βουνά, έχτιζε σπίτια και δρόμους. Διαχρονικά σίγουρη στους αιώνες.
Ομολογώ είχα ξεχάσει. Μου τα θύμισε ο ήλιος. Καυτός, σκληρός αδυσώπητος πύρωνε το τόπο λουζοντας ένα χρυσό φως αρχαίο. Αδύνατον να κρυφτείς.
Μου τα θύμισε το μπλε της θάλασσας που το μπέρδευες με το μπλε τ´ουρανού. Απεραντοσύνη. Έχανες τα όρια.
Μου τα θύμισε η ελιά. Δε λυγίζει δε ζητάει μόνο δίνει… Διαβάστε εδώ όλη την κριτική

Wonderful location with an amazing view which creates for amazing sunsets near the infinity pool. Service was fantastic! Best breakfast I’ve ever had at a hotel, which is fresh, local, and never ending (7 course!). Chef Saki was always available to create a fantastic dinner experience while you were overlooking beautiful virgin Mani. A must go for anyone. FYI not children friendly.
