Voted as the ‘Best Resort in Greece’ one of the reasons the Eagles Palace has won this title, is through its respect for its environment. Located in one of the most beautiful parts of Greece, this is a property that has not taken its eco-friendly measures lightly.

Online PR News – 12-March-2013 – Halkidiki – Ideal for vacations for countless reasons, the Eagles Palace Hotel & Spa also takes its responsibilities towards the environment very seriously. One of a handful of environmentally friendly hotels in Greece, the property has always made a point of blending in with its environment not only through its non-assuming architecture but through its ecological conscience and daily eco acts. Based on the premise that through respecting the environment, we respect ourselves, this eco-friendly hotel in Greece prides itself on keeping attuned to its unique environment. And as one of the top ecological hotels in Greece, if not Europe, it has achieved this with great success. Measures that have been taken include: Low consumption light bulbs in public areas and garden lighting, master electricity switches in all bedrooms, hot and cold water pipe insulation, one hand controlled bath taps and variable linen changes. Waste is divided into metal, plastic and paper recycling, liquid soap dispensers are provided in public area toilets and fitness douches and pool water is continuously filtered.
In achieving these measures, the property has come to be acknowledged as one of the leading green hotels in Greece.
Also awarded with the Blue Flag for the clean waters of its sea as well as protecting migrating birds’ nests, labeling plants, organizing cleaning campaigns with local schools and producing its own olive oil from the olive trees in its garden, the property has gone a long way with putting eco-friendly theories into practice. And being awarded the Blue Flag is recognition of this fact.
Furthermore, it has been awarded with the Green Key, an eco-label that has been awarded to some 2,100 establishments worldwide in 41 countries. In short, the aims of the Green Key are to raise awareness in staff and clients, increase the use of sustainable methods of operation and technology and run ecologically sound and responsible businesses thereby reducing resources and energy use.
