This is not your typical Greek destination: no blue doors or whitewashed buildings; no souvlaki stands or souvenir shops. Kinsterna is a lovely, tasteful hideaway faithfully and lovingly designed around a set of medieval buildings. Located at the bottom of the Peloponnese with an inspiring view of Monemvasia (an amazing walled city built on an island), it is definitely one... More

This is a great, wonderful place. Not only 5 star all the way (quality of accommodation, service, food, setting, etc), but the people make the difference. The staff is overfriendly and professional; the manager and his assistants seek to indulge in the history and the future of the estate, the community and the region. Fascinating how passionate they can be... More

We were looking forward to combining a trip to Monemvasia with a quite retreat to a luxury resort. The resort is only a few minutes from Monemvasia, we spent the day relaxing at the pool and enjoying the luxurious Kinsterna estate. We traveled with two small children that enjoyed the pool that is separate from the adult pool. Our kids... More

Perfect hotel in a great castle like building. 5 stars by all means. Restaurant food is excellent. Local wines they make on their own are top quality. At the pool bar you must try the lemonade ( with or without alcohol ). The personnel is very polite and we'll trained.

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 seen two lovely nights at Kinsterna. We were upgraded to a huge Kinsterna suite, which was beautiful and had fabulous views. We had a very relaxing time lounging by the pool and going to the day spa. The staff were extremely helpful and all the little extras like wine and olive oil to take home make... 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
