The La Riviera is the ultimate elegant spa resort, inspired by the famed thermal springs of Kyllini. Its aristocratic architecture and classic decor in elegant cream and white tones reflect the images of nearby Ancient Olympia.

On a 500-acre wooded estate along a 2 km sandy beach facing the Ionian Islands, near ancient Olympia, where the Olympic Games were born. Kyllini lies on the west coast of the Peloponnese, in the region of Ilia, just 45 minutes from the airport of Araxos and 100 km from the seaport of Patras.



Promising a lavish holiday retreat, La Riviera offers 196 stylish Mediterranean-inspired guestrooms opening on generous outdoors and seamless views of the Ionian Sea.For families, a selection of larger rooms with two sleeping areas in friendly setting are well-appointed among fragrant gardens. Surrounded by the pine trees, our family villas are exclusively designed for those who demand superior comfort, some adorned by a large private swimming pool.



Dining is an experience at the Riviera Olympia with 27 restaurants & bars and dining schemes around the clock. Breakfast is celebrated with colourful, lavish buffets laden with locally grown seasonal produce. Lounge in the shade of open-air cafés, sipping your favourite summer drink.

Savour the goodness of the Peloponnese soil in farm-fresh organic salads and light meals served on the terrace overlooking the sea. In the evening, treat yourself to a candle-lit gourmet dinner in the more formal surroundings of the à la carte restaurants, sampling the best of Greek and international cuisine.
