Your access to the Byzantine Riviera


By bringing art, design, economy, ecology, architecture, and spirituality under one roof, Karoussos private members club is a community for all things related to living and thriving in our contemporary cultural tissue. We are an exclusive global community of cultural vision and influence. Our cutting-edge clubhouse serves as a hub for brilliant minds in the cultural sector to network, upskill, work, and be inspired.

The Karoussos Center, located in the heart of the Byzantine Riviera, was built in the late 1800s using the traditional Maniot megalithic structure.

The Club is sophisticated, private, and well-appointed, allowing members to stay and meet friends and colleagues in a museum setting, host an event, relax, or simply find a quiet place to work. The Karoussos Club is a one-of-a-kind space for inspired minds, with two fabulous dining/meeting rooms, a coffee bar known as the Mahala Bar, a spectacular Al-fresco terrace with a breathtaking view of the Messenian Bay and Ionian Sea, two enclosed Byzantine gardens, and picturesque bedrooms. Members have access to our unique facilities, the Archive's content, custom programs, and cultural events. Our brand licensing program is also available to members to meet their business needs.


Our members are people who generate and seek out new perspectives and intellectual challenges, who constantly cultivate themselves, and who value the cultural quality of life.
We work hard to create an exceptional cultural community that is inspiring, creative, and forward-thinking.

While we do not discriminate based on race, socioeconomic status, or profession, we are highly particular about character. We will only accept members who demonstrate an exceptional level of cultural responsibility and a willingness to contribute to our community. We choose personalities from various disciplines to promote cultural diversity.

We have a small group of board of directors in charge of member election, consisting of our founding members. Each of our members is vetted and specially selected. As a member, you will be surrounded by an extraordinary mix of people and personalities. Our corporate members come from public and private entities and enterprises with a strong profile in social responsibility, sustainable development, and cultural prosperity.


Cultural experts guide and participate in the club's unparalleled cultural, social, and motivational programming.
Immerse yourself in a community that motivates, inspires, and grows. Members can tap into the knowledge and minds of top-tier cultural advisers, artists, motivational speakers, etc.
