Crete, a unique place throughout Europe, is a paradise of biodiversity. A crossroad between three continents with favorable climate and environment, this island, in contrast to other areas, has concentrated cultural and biological elements. Indicatively, Crete has almost as many species and subspecies of plants (about 1750) as all the British Isles (1450), even though it is 35 times smaller in size. At the same time, there are thousands of species of fauna, with the endemic ones being estimated at around 1,000.
This enormous Biodiversity is a wealth for everyone! It is our own responsibility to protect and support this biodiversity. In order to do so, we use, endemic species for the planting of outdoor areas, while we constantly aim to increase the variety of species and the number of plants.
At the same time, the maintenance and increase of the beneficial insects and microorganisms that are endemic in the gardens of the hotel is very important for us. Therefore, the resort has chosen to apply organic management to its gardens, thus favoring their presence. The hotel also strengthens its microbe, by releasing beneficial insects and micro-organisms.
