Two establishments in Greece, the Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino and The Dolli in Athens, are included in the prestigious list of the top 15 leading new luxury hotels of 2023 worldwide, compiled annually by Luxury Travel Intelligence (LTI).

“Since opening The Dolli has been a big hit with discerning in-the-know Athenians and it’s easy to understand why. It is chic yet informal and offers guests a comprehensive choice of individually appointed rooms, suites and apartments” LTI said.

“Mandarin Oriental is one of many luxury hotel brands we monitor daily. Recently, we named them as the World’s Best Luxury Hotel Brand 2023 and this spectacular new resort demonstrates exactly why. This is a breathtaking haven, with 99 elegantly appointed suites and villas, each providing exceptional views and abundant space while seamlessly blending traditional Messenian elements with contemporary luxury.”
