Very nice location with a view on the rock of Momemvasia. Fine combination of old estate with a modern hotel. Nice endless pool. A very nice boutique hotel. I wish the owners every success with this endeavour, they spent millions rebuilding the place. When we were they they were finishing the new section so that going forward they double their... More

First I must compliment on the fabulous restoration and refurbishment of a truly unique 12th century mansion into a lovely comfortable hotel with modern amenities. Every corner is picture perfect and it truly is like a dream staying at such a unique hotel like this. However my feelings are mixed. I wanted to love this place but for some reason... More

My husband and I celebrated our wedding at the Kinsterna for some 90 friends and family. We were quite demanding and particular in what we wanted and how the weekend should look like. All staff, especially Theo (manager), George (director), George (chef de cuisine), made our dream come true. From the very first email until sunrise of our wedding party... More

The staff from reception, to breakfast, to the pool bar, restaurant and house maids are incredible, so friendly and helpful and always ensuring we... More

We loved our two night stay in the Kinsterna hotel, in the deluxe suite with an extra connecting bedroom. The thoughtfulness of the design of the rooms and of the materials and decoration is a golden standard which I often miss from much grander hotels in the world. Details like the double showers, the rough marble non-slip floor, the Nespresso... More

This was honestly the most luxurious hotel I have ever stayed at. The experience from start to finish was one which I will talk about for a very long time. We arrived late, around 1:30am. We were greeted by what seemed to be every member of staff. We were given a quick tour of the hotel before being shown our... More

We stayed at the hotel during the wedding mentioned in the recent reviews....ironically to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. Kinsterna needs to make a choice between group/event bookings and individual bookings. You cant have both. Given the size of the property, individual bookings are completely overwhelmed when a wedding group is present; this happens at the pool, at the restaurant and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The internationally acclaimed high-end Kinsterna Hotel was recently awarded by TripAdvisor, the largest and most valid hotel review platform, with the prestigious “Certificate of Excellence 2014”. The Kinsterna Hotel is a Byzantine-era rural mansion, which was lovingly and superbly restored with great respect to its long history. Alongside, revives all activities that took place in the past within its property, so the mansion to be autonomous and self-sufficient and produces private label products, such as wine, extra virgin olive oil and a Greek spirit, called “tsipouro”.Tucked away in the folds of the lush hillside, with privileged views of the Medieval Castle’s Rock of Monemvasia (Peloponnese, Lakonia region) and the endless blue of the Aegean Sea, the restored Byzantine-era rural mansion offers 35 unique rooms, atmospheric suites and autonomous residences and blends magically into the surrounding vineyards, timeless olive groves, imposing eucalyptuses and the lofty cypresses, within an estate of 18 acres. The Kinsterna Hotel breathes a new dimension in the concept of luxury. The enchanting nights with a glass of wine from the local privately owned vineyards next to the Byzantine cistern, the incredible culinary creations from the Greek and the Mediterranean cuisine, with delectable local products and ingredients cultivated in the estate, in the Kinsterna Restaurant, the traditional hearty Greek breakfast, the impressive river-like pool with private relaxation areas amidst the fragrant orange trees, and the atmospheric Kinsterna Spa, with the signature treatments and the highly qualified therapists, highlight the unique experience of the mansion’s guests and fully justifies why Kinsterna Hotel was included in the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler’s Hot List as one of the 65 best new hotels in the world! ... more   less
