Environment

Bedclothes and towels are not automatically changed on cleaning days. If you prefer to have them changed please put them on the floor. This saves considerable quantities of electricity, detergent and water.

Freshwater is often in short supply in the Mediterranean, on the Canary Islands and in Thailand. This is why we ask everyone to be careful with the water. Did you know? If 500 people do not let the tap run while brushing their teeth, at least 50,000 liters of water will be saved every week.

We also encourage our guests to use the waste separation facilities within the resort areas. Garbage stations for paper, aluminum cans, glass & plastic bottles are situated in outdoor places and can easily be found for your garbage sorting.

We have 3 main unites; one in main pool area, second one in Garden Bar area and third one  at the beach.
