At Mar-Bella Collection we’ve always embraced the importance of protecting our beautiful surroundings. And we’ve worked hard at doing this for more than 50 years. The natural environment – our oceans, forests and beaches  – is our future. It is up to all of us to safeguard them for future generations. From protecting the natural environment and energy-saving initiatives through to special activities for our guests, our commitment to sustainability affects all areas of our operations.

Respect & protect

MarBella has operated a strict environmental and corporate responsibility programme since 1999 and with everyone’s participation we continue to achieve our goals. We are constantly seeking ways to reduce waste, conserve natural resources, and promote eco-friendly practices across our entire operations with the aim of having a positive social and environmental impact wherever we operate.

Saving energy

We are constantly working to reduce pollution through reducing our consumption of energy across all areas of our operations. From using our natural resources to heat water, reducing guest energy usage to desalination systems, we are making big steps in reducing our carbon footprint.

Environmental management

We are committed to preserving our region’s natural environment and local communities. We operate in accordance with international, national and local law, as well as having our own proactive corporate social responsibility policy. Each of our hotels has its own team overseeing initiatives and ensuring continuous improvement across recycling, water irrigation and all other areas of our operations.

Get involved

When it comes to the environment, we’re all in this together and to make our initiatives work we’d love your help. You can do this in many ways from reporting leaking taps and re-using towels to showering before entering our pools. We would very much appreciate your contribution in saving energy and protecting our local environment.


Sister property to Nido (and equally stylish), MarBella is on the shores of Agios Ioannis Peristeron, on the island’s south-east and a half an hour drive from Corfu Town. Landscaped gardens are set on the edge of the Ionian Sea, the hotel has its own beach and water park, and there are no fewer than 10 restaurants and bars to work through.

A heavenly ocean-side retreat, with possibly the most beautiful views in Greece: If you possibly can, fly into Corfu, then take the hotel’s boat across the ocean to your final stop. You’ll feel entirely reset and ready to holiday by the time you arrive, having passed countless secret sandy shores, caves and inlets on your way, sea salt amassing to shimmer in your hair. Elix’s reception is then like a sort of celestial spa, with barn-high ceilings and windows that frame the infinity view, and even a soothing spa-like scent to cascade over your senses.

Conde Nast Traveller on Elix

A five star Ionian hideaway with A list appeal: Elix is a five-star hideaway in a six-star location. Blended unobtrusively into the densely wooded slopes above the brochure-worthy Karavostasi beach, this eco-conscious hive of pools, stone, wood and olive-tinted concrete offers low-key luxury amid sage-scented gardens and nature’s wild splendour.

The Times on Elix

If you are after a restorative coastal retreat, book a room at Nido Suite Hotel on the southeast coast of Corfu—it’s adults only (for guaranteed peace and quiet) and situated on a tree-clad hillside that slopes down to the idyllic beach. All suites benefit from the dreamy views of the twinkling Ionian sea, but, if you want total privacy, book the Junior Suite with its own pool.
