The Amathus Beach Hotel, a five star hotel in Limassol, received the “Green Hotel of the Year 2015” award at the European Hospitality Awards that took place on November 12 at the Royal Garden hotel in London.
The hotel has launched numerous green initiatives to become an ecologically conscious resort and the leader in the European hotel industry concerning sustainability projects.
Highlights of its green initiatives include an advanced central geo-exchange and heat recovery system that exploits the sea water for heating and cooling purposes for the hotel needs, contributing to a significant reduction of environmental pollution.
