The vision of the Group is its constant effort to keep its name connected with sustainability in the operation of the tourism sector and the simultaneous provision of high-quality services to its customers, satisfying their needs for leisure, recreation and entertainment.
The company supports and applies responsible policies to minimize its environmental footprint in a long-term sustainable development path while at the same time sensitizing its employees and visitors. We respect the valuable natural resources of the region, we operate in a way that helps their preservation and sustainability, while ensuring for the next generations both the natural environment and the cultural heritage, as well as the conditions for their own prosperity.
To this end, we adopt and implement responsible policies, with a view to minimizing our environmental footprint. Moreover, we take measures to protect and preserve water and natural resources, as well as promote recycling within our hotels’ premises.
We care for the wildlife and stand for the animals’ welfare. We are against any form of animal exploitation and reprove participation in any activities which may harm or impact the welfare of animals. We encourage our visitors to be vigilant of such activities, be considerate about animals and think carefully before undertaking any activity, which may hurt them.
The financial returns of our efforts are granted back to the local communities that foster our growth, according to their unique needs.
For our advanced practices, our hotels and resorts have been awarded with the ‘Green Key’ and ‘Blue Flag’ quality eco-labels for tourism.
Our progress is coupled with the development of the local communities and the environment in which we operate. We support and cooperate with local enterprises, the regional communities and their residents with a view to protecting local culture, customs and traditions, enhancing their spiritual, social and cultural advancement and ensuring their overall prosperity.
