The Kinsterna hotel is housed in a restored byzantine mansion which was turned into a unique boutique design hotel featuring 27 suites and rooms. Hidden in the verdant slopes of Parnonas, it offers unique vistas of the rock of the Monemvasia castle and the Aegean blue. Visitors can enjoy the swimming pool with private relaxation areas and the atmospheric spa with Turkish hammam rituals.
