CONNECTING WITH SUSTAINABLE DESTINATION CHALLENGES
There is a direct relation between sustainability of a destination and tourism. Areas with a particular natural beauty, such as Crete, are the ones that the majority of tourists are looking for in Greece. Creta Maris Beach Resort maintains an integrated Sustainability program that ensures the protection of natural beauty, biodiversity and social wellbeing, while at the same time the resort attracts more tourists, increasing thereby the quality of life of the local population, while minimizing the negative environmental and social impact of tourism.
Maintaining a sustainable destination, such as Crete and specifically Hersonissos, where Creta Maris Beach Resort operates, requires a sustained process of sustainability improvement. For this reason, the hotel does its utmost to inform the staff, the guests, its collaborators and the society of Hersonissos about Sustainability and the actions it undertakes in this direction, inviting them to do the same. In addition, Creta Maris monitors the technological development as well as new practices, which then are being implemented with a view to its most sustainable operation.
