TEMES, is a premier destination developer & operator in the high end tourism and real estate sector. Costa Navarino, its flagship development, is one of the largest tourism investments in the Mediterranean.
TEMES, established by the Constantakopoulos family, has materialized the vision of its founder Captain Vassilis Constantakopoulos to establish his homeland Messinia as a world-class, high-end tourism destination. The Constantakopoulos family is the founder and majority owner of Costamare Shipping Company (www.costamare.com), leading international owner of containerships, listed in the New York Stock Exchange.
COSTA NAVARINO, the prime, sustainable destination in the Mediterranean, is a TEMES development in the region of Messinia in Southwest Peloponnese. It is located amidst one of the most unspoiled and breathtaking seaside landscapes, in an area shaped by 4,500 years of history.
Costa Navarino’s philosophy is driven by a genuine desire to promote Messinia, while protecting and preserving its natural beauty and heritage. At the heart of the company’s philosophy is its strong commitment to environmental responsibility, along with genuine respect for local traditions and communities.
Currently, Costa Navarino has been developed in two distinct seaside landscapes, “Navarino Dunes” and “Navarino Bay”. Navarino Dunes is the setting for two luxury 5-star hotels, “The Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort”, and “The Westin Resort Costa Navarino”, managed by Starwood Hotels & Resorts. It is also home to The Dunes Course, Greece’s first signature golf course, designed by former US Masters Champion and Ryder Cup Captain Bernhard Langer in association with European Golf Design. The second signature golf course The Bay Course is designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Jr. and located at the nearby Navarino Bay site. Both courses are managed by world-renowned Troon Golf.
Navarino Dunes also features the 4,000m Anazoe Spa, offering a full range of specialist treatments inspired by ancient Greece, the House of Events, a multi-purpose and highly versatile conference center accommodating up to 1,700 people, the Cocoon care center for infants, the SandCastle, a specially designed youth hub offering exciting recreational/educational activities, the Agora authentic village center, Navarino Natura Hall, an interactive environmental exhibition center, as well a wide range of sports and cultural activities for all ages.
