The Romanos is a luxury resort with stunning views across the Ionian Sea, surrounded by lush olive groves, vineyards and secluded coves.  A brilliant destination for both couples and families.

The Romanos sits along the beautiful and uncrowded Dunes Beach making it the perfect place to unwind and enjoy everything this part of the Peloponnese has to offer. Both the location and the resort have won many awards, including the National Geographic Best 20 Locations in the World to Visit. Natural wetlands and nature reserves are a stop off for many migratory birds, including flamingos, and the local beaches surrounded by medieval castles and little villages, are a swimmer's paradise.

The Romanos offers guests space, exceptional service, ultra smart accommodation and an enormous variety of family friendly facilities. The resort is contemporary in style, using natural materials that are in harmony with the surrounding landscape. There is accommodation to suit both families and couples, with seafront villas and many with interconnecting options. You can expect faultless attention to detail.

The primary hub of the resort is the Agora, which The Romanos shares with its neighbour, The Westin. The Agora is charming and incorporates the ancient Greek tradition of a 'meeting place'.  It has its own amphitheatre, and the vibrant village fel is enhanced by boutiques, restaurants, cafés and bars.  Perhaps enjoy lunch here or wander through in the evening, stopping off for meze before catching a film at the open air theatre.

The sports facilities, both land and water, are outstanding. At either end of the beach, there's a vast selection of equipment available for guests to use. Surfing, paddle boarding, diving, sailing and kayaking are just some of the activities on offer, with specialist instruction also available.  Alternatively, you can play tennis, squash, padel or badminton.

Golfers are spoilt for choice with two professionally designed courses and a golf academy where lessons can be booked.

When you need to escape for some indulgent pampering, the fabulous spa is a heaven!

The resort can organise excursions to explore local historic sites and places of natural beauty, or guests can choose just to spend long days on the beach. A rather handy bell service will keep you refreshed with drinks and snacks from the Barbouni Beach bar.

Children will never be bored at The Romanos. Two fantastically run and equipped kids' clubs - Cocoon and Sandcastle - run activity programmes, and the aqua park and adventure playground will keep them entertained for hours. The swimming pools are child friendly in design, with gentle steps and plenty of paddling space.
