Also, in partnership with the Mood Life Wellness experts’ team, guests have the chance to rejuvenate and dispel the everyday tension and stress buildup at a safe and relaxing wellness space with the best view to Chora and the endless blue of the Aegean Sea with Greek organic cosmetics.
It is worth mentioning that through Kallichoron’s Corporate Social Responsibility program “Kallichoron Room2Give” an amount from each and every reservation is allocated to a local community activity for children and young adults.
Greek Breakfast also plays an integral part of Kallichoron’s hospitality. With the guidance of the dietician-nutritionist Mary Michelis (MSc), fresh, locally sourced ingredients are carefully selected locally to ensure guests enjoy the tasty and award-winning Astypalean breakfast meal “Grandma’s Breakfast”. At Kallichoron, travelers can be confident that the food they’re consuming is as healthy as it is delicious, organic and locally produced where possible, as well as special diets can be addressed.
But at Kallichoron they do not stop there. As we all know, almost half of the household waste consists of organic refuse and food scraps from the kitchen. So, when breakfast trays are daily collected after breakfast, Kallichoron has in place an internal organic waste management system to ensure that organic food waste is kept separately to feed the farm’s hens, which make the eggs for the following day.
Notably, Kallichoron is the only hotel in Greece that has received the Green Marketing Excellence Award for Grandma’s Breakfast, as an innovative way to achieve sustainability and adopt green practices in the hotel industry; but also Kallichoron has been awarded the Gold Responsible Business Award for supporting the local community and the Best Greek Boutique Hotel Award at the famous Nobel Prize Hall at the Golden Hall of the City of Stockholm for its unique service of authentic Greek hospitality offered to travelers.
Kallichoron will officially open its doors for this year on June 29th, 2020 and In order to keep travelers informed about the hotel’s response against COVID-19, a dedicated COVID-19 Response page has been launched on Kallichoron’s website, to explain how Kallichoron Art Boutique Hotel can support travel planning to Astypalea Island.
