A brand new luxury hotel in the medieval castle city of Monemvasia.

Just on the outskirts of the medieval castle-city of Monemvasia, the stunning and romantic Kinsterna Hotel & Spa proudly welcomes its first guests.

Tucked-away in the folds of a lush hillside with privileged views of Monemvasia Castle and the endless blue of the Aegean, the lovingly and superbly restored Byzantine-era rural mansion blends magically into the surrounding vineyards and timeless olive and citrus groves, all irrigated by the ancient cistern located in the center of the building.

Steeped in its own five-hundred-year history with authentic architectural and construction details evidencing the building’s Byzantine, Ottoman, Venetian and modern-Greek phases, the Kinsterna Hotel & Spa includes all the facilities and amenities expected of a luxury boutique hotel while our services focus on romance, wellness and authenticity.

The hotel’s design has taken cues from the building’s rich history and includes iconic design items. While our guests enjoy the luxurious fittings and top-notch service of a contemporary boutique hotel, they are simultaneously inspired into a subtle and romantic voyage through time.

The gourmet restaurant offers a distinctly Mediterranean cuisine using the finest organic ingredients with contemporary twists, whereas the appealing Spa offers a variety of treatments including a purifying traditional ottoman hammam. The hotel is completed by its signature swimming pool which begins as a brook feeding off the ancient cistern and grows to run like a river through the two-hundred-year-old orange trees.


Whether Kinsterna’s guests just want to relax and absorb the tranquil Mediterranean environment or immerse themselves in the romance of the surrounding history, culture, and nature of this perfect getaway, Kinsterna’s staff will be there to offer discrete yet personalized service.
