As a hotel we understand that the Earth’s resources are not infinite and that there exists a great need to preserve the natural environment if we want ourselves, and future generations to continue to enjoy it. As such since 2012 we have begun slowly but surely minimizing the impact of our operations to environment. Below we summarize current practices that contribute to our ‘Green Thinking” policy:
Energy & Recycling:
- Solar energy panels are used for heating water.
- Energy Efficent light bulbs are installed in most areas.
- Non-Smoking Rooms.
- Double Opening Glass Doors.
- Individual A/C Units for individual control.
- Cotton towels and linens for bathroom and bedroom used.
- Hot and cold water pipe insulation.
- You will notice that white is one of the theme colors of the hotel. This is not solely for visual purposes but also helps reflect the sun and thus have cooler temperatures in the hotel. This particularly important in the summer season where temperatures can be very high. Hopefully this reduces the need for the A/C and thus the consumption of energy.
Biodiversity, Health, and Organic Products
- Recycled water is used for watering the gardens.
- The hotel owns it’s own olive trees which are used to cover part of the needs of the hotel in terms of olive oil and olives.
- Battery, glass, metal, paper, plastic and used cooking oil recycling is conducted.
- Use of bio fertilizers for the gardens.
- Gas stoves in kitchen.
- Liquid soap dispensers in public toilets.
- Local organic products are preffered as much as possible.
- Many rooms and bungalows are spread within the dense gardens of the hotel containing local plants and flowers that add freshness to the microclimate and allow rainwater to reach the soil.
