This beautifully preserved Byzantine mansion lies on the side of a mountain in the Laconia region of the Peloponnese, around an old cistern which for centuries irrigated the pristine land, keeping its olive and citrus groves fertile and alive whilst radiating life and good health. Kinsterna Hotel & Spa, a renovated mansion which has distant views of the deep blue Aegean and the rock of Monemvasia, with its medieval city, houses thirty five guest rooms within its medieval stone walls, in which beams, archways, domed ceilings and some fireplaces, all original features, have been expertly preserved. The guest rooms, which are dressed with hints of traditional decor and patterns, are all fitted with modern luxurious furniture to achieve the highest level of comfort.
A freshwater spring that flows through the grounds and hotel terraces, past the pool bar, fills the river-like pool where you can relax and unwind under the shade of an umbrella. This can be followed by a visit to the atmospheric Kinsterna Spa, which focuses on complete wellness of the mind and body, drawing on the energy and life of the surrounding land, to intensify the effect of the many treatments on offer and achieve absolute tranquility. In the evening the Kinsterna Gourmet Restaurant, partly enclosed by the old buildings of the mansion yet open to the sea in the east, has outdoor seating arranged on cantilevered platforms which pass over lit pebbles in the glowing turquoise waters of the pool below; a most romantic setting in which to enjoy fresh seafood, organic produce, local wine and fine Mediterranean cuisine.
Surrounded by such rich culture the Kinsterna Hotel & Spa venerates the history of its walls and celebrates the passing of time and existence. Its rural features are enriched by luxury, high-end tasteful design creating an atmosphere that awakens the senses allowing for recuperation, relaxation and romance.
