SUSTAINABILITY & ENVIRONMENT
Our goal is to respect Santorini’s environment and the balance between our ecological footprint and the natural world is at the core of our philosophy.
Upon entering Santo Maris Oia Luxury Suites and Spa our guests are greeted by an olive tree that is more than 200 years old. The preservation of this natural relic is a symbol of how we treat our surroundings and the unique nature of the island.
Every building in the spacious complex was built in homage to traditional techniques and materials to protect the island’s rich history and to remain environmentally friendly.
The greater part of each space is built from a combination of stone, wood, cement mortar and marble, in much the same way as the traditional homes were built in the past.
The outside of all of our buildings feature whitewashed curved walls and rooftops in the typical Greek islands’ style, and the gorgeous floors were built using sustainable materials.
We also like to save energy wherever possible at Santo Maris Oia and with our special approach to energy we lower our use but still offer a one-of-a-kind experience.
