The charming “AKTI TAYGETOS – CONFERENCE RESORT” is the modern version of a myth. In the same idyllic location opened as early as 1969 the first luxury resort hotel in Messinia and all Southern Peloponnese, TAYGETOS BEACH. The profile of “AKTI TAYGETOS – CONFERENCE RESORT” today is perfectly aligned with the modern trends of well-being and travel philosophy, and embodies nostalgically the whole past of a dynamic cosmopolitan style.
The hotel is in perfect harmony with its environment, in the popular and beautiful resort of Kalamata, called Mikra Mantineia.
Mikra Mantineia, called Iri in Homer’s time, was one of the six cities that Agamemnon offered to Achilles as a wedding gift to persuade him to marry his daughter Ifigenia and participate in the Trojan War. This place has been a place of envy since ancient times because of its beauty, combining the peacefulness of the sea with the strength of Taygetos, the mountain of the goddess Artemis and the Nymphs of Antiquity.
During the Byzantine times, the Palaeologans of Mystras and other lords used to spend their holidays in this area for the “supremacy of the air”, meaning the healthy climate and its natural beauty. Characteristically, the historian I. Papadopoulos calls Mantinia and its surrounding area, “Byzantine Riviera”.
Built in the shape of an amphitheatre within large gardens of 15 acres with lush vegetation, it wakes up senses and serves as a place of harmony with the carved stones, the tile roofs and the cobblestone narrow streets being its typical features.
It includes 80 luxurious rooms and apartments equipped with all modern amenities and decorated with warm colours and minimal design.
A special highlight is the artistic quality and elegance of the suites and the EXECUTIVE rooms as well as the comfort of the FAMILY apartments, which will surprise you with their unique amenities in a beautiful setting.
