Having also recently won a global award for Low-Carbon Ecological Scenic Spot at the Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements Awards 2021, with recognition from the United Nations, Sani Resort has positioned itself as one of the world’s best sustainable resorts.

A commitment to excellence

Of the two awards, Mr Antonis Avdelas, Sani Resort’s Chief Sales & Marketing Officer said:

“From the most prestigious award programme in the travel industry, these accolades serve as recognition of our commitment to creating unrivalled luxury holidays and meaningful experiences for our valued guests, while having a positive social and environmental impact beyond the resort borders. Together with our people, our most valuable asset, we look forward to another season of creating unique experiences, only at Sani. On behalf of Sani Resort, thank you to everyone who made these awards possible.”

Sani is firmly committed to contributing to the fight against climate change, with the aim to mitigate emissions, increase renewable energy use and balance out remaining emissions, assisted with the launch of its Zero Carbon Footprint. In 2020, Sani Resort successfully became the first carbon neutral resort in Greece, balancing its net emissions to zero, while the resort has been running on 100% renewable electricity since 2019. Half a century of respecting nature has crafted Sani Resort into the ultimate sustainable destination, and Sani’s commitment to change and improvement has been proven by ongoing achievements and milestones. Sani Resort is also a member of the United Nations Global Compact.

New at Sani in 2022

In May 2022, the highly anticipated second phase of Porto Sani’s elegant reimagining will be unveiled at the five-star, multi-award-winning Sani Resort, following the completion of a €30 million refurbishment. The stylish renovation showcases impressive upgrades throughout the hotel and invites guests to experience the completion of their redesigned hotel concept, which focuses on carefree, luxury holidays for young families. The extended property will reopen with two new restaurants, extended public spaces, new pools, as well as 148 luxuriously comfortable suites, each perfectly tailored to meet the needs of babies, children and their parents. In addition, the Kids Club and Crèche have undergone an expansion of their own, creating new indoor and outdoor spaces for a range of activities.

The consecutive wins at World Travel Awards year on year show not only the sustainable and luxury family credentials of Sani Resort, but also the dedication of the staff and team members across the resort, who have contributed to the resort’s tremendous successes and who have made these two awards possible.
