In the thermal baths of Kyllini, in western Peloponnesus, is situated “Olympia Riviera Resort”. Set on a 500-acre wooded estate bordering the sea, “Olympia Riviera Resort” composed of five distinct environments that flow into each other: Mandola Rosa suites & villas , Olympia Oasis , Olympia Riviera Thalasso , Elixir Thalassotherapy Center and Olympia Convention Center. The design challenge was to create a completely integrated resort with a distinctive architectural character for each of the components of the development. Grecotel redefines the concept of the boutique hotel with the stunning Mandola Rosa – a name inspired by the cloud of pink that envelopes Ancient Olympia when the sacred grove’s glorious almond trees blossom. Mandola Rosa conjures the glamour of Europe’s Belle Epoque and has the easy, languid air of an aristocratic summer villa of the Riviera.

Olympia Riviera Thalasso was carefully located to maximize existing topography for sea views. Olympia Oasis , on the other hand, was designed so as to recreate the aesthetics of a ‘modern’ village , and Elixir Thalassotherapy Center is a striking example of Greek classic architecture. The hotel’s design, with its porticoes, broad terraces, meticulously landscaped grounds and cascading pools, was carefully chosen to deliver a divinely peaceful and stylish destination.
