Message from Aquila Hotels & Resorts S.A.


Message from Aquila Hotels & Resorts S.A.

As a valued guest, we wanted to take a moment to reach out to you on behalf of the entire Aquila family. Aquila Hotels & Resorts has been guided by the timeless wisdom of the Golden Rule: to treat others as you would have them treat you. During these uncertain times, the Golden Rule is a beacon that shapes the way forward. At Aquila, this means caring for each other, taking responsible actions to stop the spread of COVID-19, and protecting our people and all who choose to stay or live with us. Importantly, it also means continuing to offer a comforting and enjoyable experience to our guests, and a safe workplace for our employees. As we look ahead to the future of hospitality and travel, we are implementing full-scale enhancements to our already stringent health and safety procedures.

The Aquila experience may look different in this new environment, but it will feel the same; ultimately, it will still be our people delivering the same attention to detail, intuitive service, and personalized care for which our brand is known and trusted. We also understand your need for flexibility when planning future travel and visits to your Aquila Hotel or Resort. To that end, we encourage you to review our latest cancellation policy and to contact a member of our reservations team to discuss your future plans. The coronavirus situation is evolving rapidly, and changes in travel arrangements or holiday plans can happen at a moment’s notice. We fully appreciate that such changes are often unsolicited, and wish to inform you that we are responding with increased flexibility.

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you for the trust and loyalty you have shown us over the years. At Aquila Hotels & Resorts, we have proudly represented the traditions of hospitality for 15 years, and time has shown us that it is always in the most difficult moments that our values of empathy, respect, and exceptional care for our guests, have made a real difference. We have always been dedicated to serving, and this will not be any different today or indeed in the future. We wish you good health, and we look forward to welcoming you again to one of our hotels in the future.

Your Health, Safety and Well-Being


Your Health, Safety, and Well-Being

AQUILA Hotels & Resorts has been working for several weeks to create guidelines & checklists, that will serve to guide operations in the hotels when they reopen post-COVID.
The key elements of the guidance revolve around social distancing and cleaning and hygiene practices. The guidance offered is based on current best practices taken from the World Health Organization, the European Centre of Disease Control, and Greek legislation.
We have examined our client's journey within the hotel environment, from check-in to check out. Within this journey, we have provided guidance on various control procedures. Our aim is to prevent the spread of infection (POSI) from person to person and also from the hotel environment. We constantly follow revolutionary cleaning and hygiene technologies that provide total confidence to our guests, staff, and collaborators.

Our team is working on the 4 phases to any effective COVID-19 response:
a) During closure/lockdown: to ensure the facility is being well maintained.
b) Pre-opening period: to ensure our operating procedures and systems are updated accordingly.
c) Re-opening property: to develop and implement new infection control arrangements in place.
d) Post-crisis continuation: for on-going verification of standards and certification.

We are developing a Certification Scheme, which will comply all legislative acts and governmental orders, as well as all measures recommended by the National Public Health Organization and the World Health Organization, for the protection against the COVID-19 outbreak, and its high standards of hygiene procedures throughout all AQUILA properties, in order to ensure the health and safety of all guests and its staff.

We will update our clients with all actions and procedures, as soon as everything has been decided, taking into consideration Greek and global legislation.
