Caring luxury

Reduce Reuse Recycle

  • We recycle batteries from TV controls, DVD players, CD players, A/C remote controls, electronic safes, electronic room key locks, totaling to 1550 batteries per season
  • We purchase supplies in cases that can be reused, either by us or by the supplier: reuse soft drink glass bottles, beer glass bottles, grocery in plastic cases, bread delivered in wooden cases etc
  • All external light bulbs have been replaced with low energy light bulbs and timers have been installed to reduce the energy consumed in most areas of the hotel
  • Key entry systems cards have been installed to all hotel rooms. When guests leave the rooms, electricity shuts down after 60 seconds
  • Pebbles have been placed to all hotel roofs to allow better air ventilation and to prevent sun rays heating up the cement ceiling, resulting to lower A/C usage – save significantly on energy
  • Ozone treatment facilities have been installed to reduce chlorine in pool water
  • Timers have been installed in water boilers to prevent working 24hours, but simply emphasize on peak hours
  • Recycle stained table cloths into Chefs approns and napkins
  • When possible, we send hotel leaflets in electronic way (PDF) than paper
  • During recent lobby renovation, we have changed the glass partitions with high tech glass containing a film to bloke the sun rays and saved up 30% of A/C usage
  • Installed timer in outdoor jacuzzi to shutdown heating at night, when closed
Purchasing local

We always try to offer Greek products instead of non Greek during hotel operation, renovation or recycling. They are fresher, we wrap guests in more of a Greek experience and in same cases cost less. E.g.: replace Perrier water with Sourotis sparkling water in all departments, including minibars. Replace Twix chocolates with Greek ION chocolates, German fruit juices replaced with Greek Amita products.

Hotel and local community

  • Donate used bedroom linen to Syros Orphanage
  • Donate 120 balcony chairs to Mykonos military base
  • Donate curtains and bedcovers of 25 rooms to Orphanage in Athens
  • Donate drinks and food items to different charity organizations every year at the end of season
  • We invite Mykonian dancers to perform at our resort
Hotel contribution to "Pride of Place" or "sense of place"

  • Through hotel interior design: mosaic designs, marble columns are inspired by the Delos civilization (opposite of our resort property) and local artistry is spread around hotel grounds
  • Through hotel architecture: hotel is built according to local Cycladic architecture using low height cubing buildings and lime and stone elevations with pergolas and bouquavillas to add some color
  • Through staff training to emphasis on Mykonian hospitality that made Mykonos world known
