Hotel Sustainability

Is more than a Trend, It’s a Responsibility

As we carry the name of the God of the Sea -Poseidon-, it is not only our duty to protect his underwater kingdom, but to also safeguard life on land. Our sustainability pledge is not only environmental but social & financial as well; Offering guests a guilt-free experience by going “green(er)” without compromising on quality of service and providing the same top-level of hospitality.

We, Green Ambassadors, Management Team and Owners at Poseidonia Beach Hotel recognize our responsibility to minimize our environmental impact, henceforth preserving experiences for future generations. Sustainability has never been a trend to please guests, it has always been an intuitive personal responsibility of ours. Being a family run hotel, having a more positive impact on the global ecosystem and managing the property with care and attention have always been the driving force in our operation.

As we slowly yet steadily transition from a Linear Business Model into a more Circular Operation, each and every department in our hotel is playing an active role to ensure a smooth and efficient shift. Guests are also involved in making a difference and being part of the positive change.

Our Green Committee has been actively working since the beginning of 2022, with a clear and organized vision: Green(er) / Blue(er) / Bright(er)
