Environment

Sustainbility initiatives

Our philosophy is based on respect for the environment and pride in our cultural heritage. Thus, we take special care of the environmental impact of our activity, focusing on sustainability criteria to minimize the ecological footprint. Since our opening, we have supported eco-tourism and defended the flora and fauna of the area in which we are located. We feel like guardians of this beautiful place we call home, and thus we put special care into the environmental impact in our operations. 

We are active partners in the European Interreg DEEP-SEA project, intending to improve our marina's quality, safety and environmental sustainability. The project includes installing an e-charging station for e-cars and e-boats as well as offering e-bicycles to the guests and electric car for tourist transportation.

Another initiative that helps us address our global impact on the planet and our community is our wish to become a Zero plastic waste hotel. Our goal is to generate zero plastic waste by exchanging all plastic with biodegradable materials and eliminating single-use plastics from all our operations. With this commitment, we aim to reduce the ecological footprint while continuing to implement sustainable initiatives through waste reduction. We are aware that this is not an easy task but together we can make a difference in everyday operations and appropriate waste disposal. 

With our MARINA CLEAN UP event - cleaning the seabed of Maslinica bay at least two times a year, we also give our significant contribution to preserving the Adriatic Sea ecosystem while maintaining our cristal clean sea for our guests and future generations.
