Stay at The Romanos

One thing that could help with any cold weather-induced mopiness you may have is to start planning for next year’s summer vacation(s).  One destination you may want to consider is Messinia, Greece in Southern  Peloponnesos which people are calling the “Tuscany of Greece”.  If you do go, make sure to check out The Romanos, Costa Navarino, a brand new eco-friendly luxury resort that boasts 321 rooms/suites and overlooks The Dunes Beach, a 1 km stretch of sandy goodness that sits on the warm blue waters of the Ionian Sea.  In addition to the spectacular scenery, the resort also features a championship golf course and a 4,000 square meter spa.  You can also feel good that your stay will have a minimal impact on the environment since only 10 percent of the total land area was used for construction and the resort focuses on minimization of energy consumption through the use of sea-water circulation and a geothermal installation underneath the golf course.  They also plant trees, lots and lots of olive and citrus trees.  You can book for stays after May 4th (currently closed for the season) with rates starting in the $300 range and going up north of $3,000 for the suites.  Click on the jump for more photos and a video.
