Responsible tourism: Polis, Cyprus villa & hotel accommodation

Living up to its name the Natura Beach is a hotel with a strong environmental ethos:

The characteristic low-profile design of the hotel buildings and their distance from the beach are part of our effort of not imposing upon the surrounding environment.

Water conservation and sewage treatment:
A separate piping network provides ground water from our own well to lavatories thus saving valuable drinking water. The ground water is also used for the irrigation of our plantations and herb gardens. All waste water is collected in a sophisticated on-site biological treatment station and the treated water is used for irrigating the lawns. Guests can help in our efforts by choosing when to change towels and by refraining from throwing solid waste or chemicals in the drain.

Energy conservation:
A solar panel system ensures that for most of the year no fuel at all is used for heating the water. Economy light bulbs are used in all rooms and common areas. The air-conditioning units will go off when the glass doors to the balcony or terrace are not well shut avoiding wasteful use. Air-conditioning and all lighting in the bedrooms will also go off when the key holder is removed from the slot when the guest is away.

The Beach:
The absence of bright lights and water sports on the beach is in recognition of the fact that the Polis Bay is a breeding ground for Sea Turtles (both the Careta Careta and the Chelonia Mitas). Turtle nests are monitored and protected. Our front office can provide information and advise on ways that hotel guests can get involved.

The Plantations:
The hotel plantations, on the left and right of the buildings, provide most of the vegetables and fruit used by our kitchen. Depending on the season guests can participate in olive and orange picking. The small animal farm is an attraction for children and also provides for some of our requirements for meat and eggs.

Occasional lectures and slide shows on the nature of Cyprus and guided walks to the Akamas Peninsula nature reserve are organized by the hotel and are freely open to all guests.

Excellent. A really relaxing break - I hope to make a return trip. Very encouraging to see a smaller-scale family hotel; well-organised, clean, comfortable, friendly and beautiful, with a positive impact on its local environment. Read full review

The villas are simply furnished but comfortable. We breakfasted on the first floor roof terrace of the villa overlooking the hotel’s gardens, and relaxed by the sunny private pool secluded from our neighbours by tall vegetation. Read full review

It was all that I expected it to be, and more besides! The hotel was peaceful and quiet, with no noisy discos or other entertainment, (which I don't like), and the food was good too ~ lots of it being from their own organic gardens. Read full review

This hotel is a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing place to stay. It's also the only hotel I've ever stayed in where there were always enough sun-beds to go round. Friendly staff, good food, pleasant rooms with wonderful views. Read full review

We did really enjoy the vacation - it was both relaxing and refreshing. The hotel that I found through you was, we think - probably the best hotel in its category; firstly because it grew and used seasonal vegetables and fruit; secondly, because it was largely quiet and peaceful and lastly, but not least, because of its location.

The views from the hotel front were great - and we were close to the Akamas Peninsula, excellent walking country. Overall we had an excellent vacation, especially as the weather was pretty good for January. We would be happy to go again. Read full review
