It is a very important award, that of theOscar del Turismo, and Italy has won it. The chosen one is the 5-star Valle dell’Erica Thalasso & SPA Resort, signed Delphina Hotels & Resorts, a true Sardinian excellence. Crowned Europe’s best greeen resort, it has an eco soul: located just minutes from Santa Teresa Gallura in the north of the island, it is nestled in 28 hectares of parkland, among Mediterranean shrubs and essences, in front of 1,400 meters of unspoiled coastline and white beaches, and overlooks the Strait of Bonifacio.
The Valle dell’Erica resort, as well as all the other hotels in the group, is owned and operated by two Galluresan families, who are attentive to the preservation and protection of the environment.
A project that springs from nature and becomes Mediterranean hospitality with 12 hotels, 2 residences and luxurious villas, and is present from the design phase of the facilities through low, defiladed buildings that blend into the surrounding landscape.
Respect for the environment is represented by the We Are Green® brand, created by Delphina to identify the set of forward-looking choices and sustainable best practices.
100% green, renewable energy is used, while all vehicles used within the resorts are electric.
If eco-bio and paraben-free products are used in the spa and for the courtesy line, routine cleaning uses green detergents.
In the kitchen, dishes prepared with zero-mileage products are the protagonists; recycled paper is used for printing and the inks are mineral oil-free, while the catalogs are entirely recyclable. A big step forward has been made with theelimination of single-use plastic and the phasing out of plastic bottles in favor of glass.
Delphina Hotels & Resorts is also a Corporate Golden Donor of FAI, the Italian Environmental Fund, which works to protect the country’s beauty, culture and natural heritage.
A commitment made in each and every hotel: important are social responsibility and support of the territory with the choice of artifacts made by Sardinian companies for furniture and decor, the promotion of cultural events and excursions that enhance nature, history and archaeology.
