Located in the picturesque village of Gerolimenas in the Peloponnese, Kyrimai Hotel makes for a tranquil retreat on the water's edge. With direct access to the crystal clear water and views across the Ionian Sea, this is the perfect place to simply relax and get away from it all.
Kyrimai Hotel is housed in a series of historic buildings dating back to the 19th century, which has been carefully restored using the original building materials. Throughout the quaint complex there are hidden terraces, peaceful courtyards and stone arches, with the effect that the hotel itself almost feels like a small village. The 22 rooms showcase the original features of the buildings, with exposed stone walls and beautiful wooden beam ceilings, complemented by light colours and charming furnishings.
The restaurant at Kyrimai is one of the hotel's highlights and something that the whole team is proud of. The chef uses fresh ingredients from the Peloponnese to create a delicious offering of traditional Mani recipes, which vary even between the coastal and hillside communities of the region. Guests will have the chance to taste a wide range of these unique dishes which have been given a creative twist while enjoying the beautiful views across the water that the restaurant offers.
For those looking to unwind, Kyrimai has a lovely pool looking over the sea, as well as direct access to the sparkling water. Once you've had your fill of relaxation, the Mani Peninsula is well worth exploring, even just to take in the incredible scenery and breathtaking views from its hilltops. Close by, the beautiful Cape Tainaron is where the Ioanian and Aegean seas meet, while further afield are the towns of Kardamyli and Mystras, the latter of which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its fascinating Byzantine ruins.
