Easter is a great time to get away, if a trip to the Med is being considered you can’t go wrong with Greece; the weather is beginning to warm up, it is typically less busy – ideal if you detest crowded resorts, however, beware if you fancy taking a dip in the sea as it tends to be pretty chilly during this period!

For a taste of affordable luxury I recommend the five –star Westin Resort Costa Navarino, this high –end, family -friendly hotel is located in the especially scenic Peloponnese a vast peninsula situated in the southernmost part of mainland Greece; it is technically an island itself, separated from the mainland by the Corinth Canal.

The Westin Resort Costa Navarino boasts impressive facilities, which include: a number of pools; an award winning spa; nine restaurants; cafés and bars; an open air cinema and amphitheatre. While activities range from: tennis; golf; cycling; working out at the on –site gym; water sports and scuba diving. Children will appreciate the supervised, fun activities tailored especially for them.

Beyond the resort explore the Peloponnese’s vast array of ancient sites: Byzantine churches and hidden painted chapels; make the most of the hiking trails with stunning views; and chill at the well maintained beaches.image

The hotel itself represents modern luxury: high spec rooms with spacious terraces or balconies with lounge areas which provide stunning views over the Ionian Sea and private infinity pools feature in most ground floor units.

The Westin Resort Costa Navarino’s sustainability credentials are at the heart of its business model: sustainable use of water, renewable energy, waste reduction/recycling, and the protection of local ecosystems/species, to name a few initiatives.

Booking a trip to the Westin Resort Costa Navarino this Easter is a fantastic opportunity to experience this premium eco-friendly destination during one of its more quieter periods – just be mindful of the chilly sea!
