Eco adventures galore. You’ll be excited to know that Santorini offers a world of eco-friendly activities, both indoors and outdoors. Ariana Eco Suites Adults Only recommends an eco-friendly diving club (Aegean Divers who conduct beach/sea cleaning activities) that can take you on some spectacular diving trips. Sailing and catamaran excursions by Caldera Yachting are also an excellent eco activity that are on offer. For those who are invested in good gastronomy, there are food and wine trips around the island that will reveal a whole world of healthy eating, while the Galatea’s organic pottery, art shop, and lessons on the island offers a soulfully creative experience. In parallel, gorgeous hikes from Santorini Walking Tours will unveil some of the island’s best spots by foot, while a cycling business, Ecobike, offers bikes to rent, complete with an optional guide and full sunset tours if you want well-informed locals to show you around. Lastly, the overworked donkeys of Santorini are now being well treated and part of a much lighter, better experience for visitors. It is interesting to interact with these gentle animals, and we have been assured that their welfare is very much looked after. Ask the receptionist upon arrival about this experience as well.
Green practices and Additional Health & Safety Measures. We’re happy that Ariana Eco Suites Adults Only collects rainwater, part an important element that still survives in the island’s traditional dwellings. In parallel, wastewater is treated and has its own septic tank, which luckily means only clean water seeps into the ground and never into sea. The management has drastically minimized the use of chemical cleaning products and cleans using high-tech vapor cleaners and ultraviolet equipment, while recycled pool water is used to clean the grounds. All wall paint is environmentally friendly as well. In parallel, the bioclimatic architecture combined with double glazing helps conserve energy and reduce the need for air-conditioning, while energy-efficient appliances (all A++) such as washing machines, fridges and ovens, along with LED lighting everywhere, contribute to the property’s green philosophy. Energy consumption is monitored, an important step in sustainability, and the staff is informed about respecting green practices, including the towel/sheet reuse program. A new stricter recycling program was introduced to Santorini in 2020, and the property contributes to recycling plastic and other waste. Old appliances and equipment are also sent for proper recycling. Even leftover food goes to domestic animals of the island. Lastly, in addition to its green credentials, the property’s staff is proud to have conducted health and hygiene training from the Ministry of Tourism, along with first aid and pool safety certificates.
