Let the Sounds of the Sea "Travel" Your Mind !
Almost at the tip of the Mani coast, a small bay
with a few houses, some restored, some old and ready to improve (!). But at the end of this tiny bay, the end of the village is
Kyrimai….built from stone in 1870 and restored in 2003 to be a magic oasis by the sea
for those who would seek something fine and calm, with the
sense of the area you have visited, but the style and comforts of
This is a place I would drive to, enjoying the magnificent scenery on
the way and then settle in for a worthwhile amount of time. You too
deserve this pleasure.
Public areas and rooms are all most attractive…when you arrive in a
good place to stay perhaps you should feel that you have arrived
somewhere by special invitation – you feel this at Kyrimai.
Breakfast is by the pool, in fact you dine by the pool on a fine day.
There is shade if
needed, or if the breeze or wind picks up, the solidly furnished
dining room is there for you as are various areas to sit, relax, chat
or even play pool.
Talking of pool the swimming pool is of good size and you can enjoy
the luxurious feeling of swimming in a pool that is so close to the
rocks and the sea.
The restaurant is a pride and joy for the area. The quality of your
stay will be excellent in comfort, atmosphere and gastronomy.
Bedrooms and suites have fine beds, well-chosen furniture, substantial drapes
and good bathrooms.
Some rooms have a small balcony or terrace and if you look down you
are truly on the edge of the sea - waves appear to lap below at the edge
of the building as if you were staying in a lighthouse.
This a rocky coastline - as the most dramatic ones are.
Gerolimenas and therefore Kyrimai, is on the same latitude as
southern Sicily and the straits of Gibraltar.
Further down from Gerolimenas on the peninsula, in Porto Sternes is the temple of Tainarios Poseidon, and on the beach are the
relics of the Asomatos church. Next to the church, you can
visit Hades cave, where Poseidon was worshipped.
Also worth visiting is the Tainaro Cape, the tip of the peninsula,
with one of the largest lighthouses in Greece.

SuperbGreece.com guest experiences of Kyrimai Hotel [Click here to SHOW/HIDE]
Our trip was wonderful. We had 2 nights at the Kyrimai in Gerolimenas 29th/30th September. Everything was ready for us on arrival, the receptionist there is lovely. The hotel itself was spectacular, like staying in a mini castle and a beautiful location. The hotel restaurant where we dined on our first night and which provided us with our breakfast both mornings exceeded our expectations with some fantastic food and great service.
We split our time between the peaceful poolside and a trip exploring the stunning coastline further down the peninsula.
All in all a wonderful experience, nothing could have improved it other than being booked in to stay longer!
The visit went very well, the Hotel and location were superb. We hope to
return in the near future.
The Kyrimai was quite delightful and its location is simply stunning. Again
we were surprised at how relaxed and informal it was despite its luxury
status (that's a good thing). We were told that the restaurant is an
outstation of a Greek celebrity chef. He wasn't doing the cooking but had
curated the menu. It was certainly delicious and imaginative ("normal" Greek
food gets a bit samey after a couple of weeks) Whether it was worth 3 times
as much as any other meal we had is a bit of a moot point!
There is not a lot to do this far down the Mani and we were surprised how
desolate the landscape was. All in all it was a good thing we only had 3
Everything was perfect. The hotel and staff were superb. Every hotel should have a dog like Tika, my girlfriend fell in love with her.
