- 22 elegant inviting rooms and suites -each room marries local stone and dark wood with a palette of earthy colours
- Crystal clear sea perfect to dive into from the jetty
- Kyrimai Restaurant on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea serves delicious Maniot cuisine under the guidance of Michelin-starred Athenian chef Yiannis Baxevanis
- We recommend the Superior rooms for their sea views
Organic homemade jam for breakfast is delicious followed by local fried red shrimps with ouzo mayonnaise or lunch all washed down with a few glasses of perfectly selected Greek wine.
I just wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you (Ailine Fischer) for the amazing experience in Iceland. This trip was an absolute dream. Everything about it was magical and words truly fall short. The guides, both Jon from A&K and all of the Land Rover crew were knowledgeable, friendly, and professional.

The Kyrimai Hotel represents an exquisite renovation of the old trade centre of Mani built in 1870. The result is an awesome rendering of period architecture, complete with a complex of stairways, arches and inner courts. Rooms are warm and welcoming colored by the sounds of the sea. There are tower rooms, luxury suites, two-storey rooms with fireplace and charming attics.
In the renovated warehouse, you will enjoy delightful Greek cuisine complemented by exquisite Greek wines. Exhibits in the reception area spark the imagination to travel through time with original rare memorabilia charting the development of trade in Greece during the 19th and 20th centuries.
In this charming setting which captures the aura of Mani, every contemporary convenience is available for your enjoyment; a games room with billiards, Internet facilities and swimming pool on the hotel's lovely terrace by the sea.
The Mani, in the southern Peloponnese, is one of the most unique regions in Greece known for its wild, rugged beauty, the customs of its people and its heritage. The area is noted for its traditional villages, many medieval, towers and more than a thousand Byzantine and post Byzantine churches.
Best time to be there
The mainland and islands are very hot and dry in July and especially August, the preferred travel month for French, Italian and Spanish holiday makers, making conditions busy, hotel availability limited and the beaches crowded. May, June and September are infinitely more comfortable and generally less expensive.
Rhodes, with its refreshing westerly winds and moderate summer heat, makes it the ideal place to travel for a summer holiday or a short break in the spring or Autumn.
