A Greek resort was named the World’s Leading Eco-Lodge at the World Travel Awards Grand Final in Lisbon last week.
Built in the highlands of Zagori a region in northwestern Greece, the Aristi Mountain Resort & Villas seamlessly blends with its natural, verdant surroundings by maintaining the architectural style of the surrounding villages – a grey and brown stone exterior with natural slate and wood roofing.
Despite its ordinary exterior, the resort constantly endeavours to become more sustainable. Heat pumps diminish the need for heating oil, a state of the art system cleans waste water, reducing its harmful effects on the environment, while the resort is aiming to reduce plastic waste by using products with little or no plastic or other unsustainable packaging. The restaurant serves local dishes, using fresh produce grown in the resort’s garden and greenhouse.
This significant distinction praises the efforts of the Aristi Mountain Resort & Villas and underlines Greece’s effort toward sustainable development within the hospitality industry. It is worth mentioning that the World Travel Awards are considered the ‘Oscars of the travel industry'.
