Outstanding contributions

Sustainability is one of the core values of this high quality hotel, which offers rooms and apartments. Energy and water saving practices and systems are followed, including the use of solar panels for water heating and a reverse osmosis water cleaning system in the kitchen.  Guests are offered greener options for food and services.  The website promotes the use of a carbon calculator and offset scheme, in partnership with Wayaj Sustainable Travel. 

The hotel’s shop and restaurant sells and uses local produce. A special feature is made of the traditional Greek Grandma’s Breakfast, which has been adapted to include healthy and vegan options. Local people from the island are employed in the hotel, including in management. Community projects are supported through Kallichoron’s CSR programme, which includes a scholarship in tourism studies for young students from the island.
