A fine spot to relish the timeless beauty of the Peloponnese

The untrammelled beaches and bluffs of the Peloponnese in Greece have a timeless quality. Opening in mid-May is The Romanos (www.luxurycollection.com; from €290), part of the US niche Luxury Collection portfolio.

The suites, of which there are 32 strung out in low, sand-coloured villas along a bluff, are the ones to book for their infinity pools, indoor-outdoor living rooms with fireplaces and 180º views of the Ionian Sea. The Romanos is the first of a handful of five-star resorts opening in this buzzy part of the country over the next year – watch this space.
