WELCOMES SAFE SUMMER IN GREECE
The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity; the optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty. This quote by the great British politician, Winston Churchill came especially to the fore, following the global crisis caused by Covid 19.
2021 is indeed an emblematic year for us Greeks, as our country celebrates the 200th anniversary of the Greek revolution, in 1821, against the Turkish-Ottoman yoke. In this long 200-year journey since liberation, Greece moved forward, despite the countless difficulties along the way. No matter how many times the nation stumbled and fell, it always managed to rise up again majestically!
«Always restart», wrote the French poet, writer, and philosopher Paul Valéry. This is embedded in the Greek psyche: If there is a constant in what Greeks do, it is that they will always restart! This is what we at Mitsis Hotels did as well, since the very beginning of the pandemic crisis, we reexamined all our operational procedures to ensure and guarantee the high-level quality of Health & Safety in all our hotels. Not by chance, the national vaccination program in our country was named «Operation Freedom». As the Greek Prime Minister rightly said, it refers to «freedom to live and be creative within a healthy environment, freedom from the obstacles and limitations that held us all hostage during the pandemic, freedom to be able to reclaim a high rate of prosperity, freedom to celebrate, in year 2021, our bicentenary of our independence as a nation»!
Our Hotel Group, in recognizing the true essence of the word «freedom», took all the necessary measures in time, aiming to welcoming our guests in 2021 within ideal conditions. We applied the strictest health protocols so that our guests, may enjoy freedom during their stay at our hotels, in an environment of absolute safety. We are certified with ISO, TUV and Health First and are certain that this year –just like last year– we will absolutely meet all the new requirements that have been formed in order to offer you the holidays you deserve!
Mitsis Hotels are considered the safest in Greece. Under the approval of the Dutch and Greek governments, «Mitsis Grand Hotel» in Rhodes was singled out by Sunweb Group, in cooperation with Transavia, in view of implementing a pilot program named «Safe Corridor». Its purpose was hosting the first visitors from abroad, aiming to safely restarting tourist operations in Greece. The project ran during April 2021 and was crowned with absolute success!
