NEW

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.

FRESH LOCAL MEDITERRANEAN TASTES AND WINES AT KINSTERNA RESTAURANT

The menu is a delightful combination of traditional Laconian and Mediterranean dishes using fresh and organic local produce from the estate and surrounding farms consistent with the sense of good health and well-being the Kinsterna Hotel & Spa generates. The mansion courtyard borders the restaurant which is by the old cistern still allowing for an exquisite view of the Rock of Monemvasia. In winter dining takes place indoors around the fireplace, for the warmer months there is outdoor seating on cantilevered platforms which almost seems to hover over the cistern water.

Only exceptional daily fresh lobster and fish straight from the sea and specially selected local meat of the highest quality are served. The rich soil on the estate helps to produce especially fine olive oil, citrus fruits, vegetables and bread which are all made on the grounds. The wines made from the vineyard complement the select wine list and the homemade tsipouro is a fine choice for a digestif.
  

POOL BAR

The Pool Bar serves drinks, cocktails, fresh detoxifying juices, healthy snacks and light meals throughout the day to guests on sun loungers in the relaxing pool area. During the winter the all day menu is served around the cistern and at the restaurant.
