Our core values – S.K.O.P.E.L.O.S.

  • Supporting community: We do take our responsibility towards the community very seriously. All our actions are oriented so that we contribute to both social and environmental fields in a positive way. Part of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) includes supporting “The Smile of the Child”, “Ambert Alert”, “StrayCare”, “Skopelos Green & Clean”, as well as many local initiatives. All our properties are Pet – Friendly, while “Skopelos Holidays Hotel & Spa” is certified by ECARF as an Allergy-Friendly Hotel ®.
  • Knowledge is power: Knowledge is the key to decision making that leads to well-structured actions. Our many years of experience within the hospitality industry and long-term operation on the island (since 1978), the skills and experience of our personnel and our guests’ feedback, are the sources of our knowledge; invaluable assets of power and self-improvement.
  • Originality & authenticity: It is our common belief that creativity breeds originality which in turn breeds loyalty. This is why we encourage creative thinking and empower our people to be genuine. After all, it is a lot more fun when you stand out rather than just fitting in.
  • People-first culture: Undoubtedly, it is our people who really make the difference. We continually encourage them to engage in the decision making process and we are so proud of seeing them growing and evolving within our organization.
  • Embracing change & innovation: Unless we challenge the status-quo and embrace new opportunities, we will not be able to pioneer within the dynamic sector of hospitality and realize our vision. We owe this to our guests, our employees and our community.
  • Look after the environment: We strive to reduce the environmental impact of our activities by continuously improving our practices aiming to conserve natural resources, minimize waste and save energy. In harmony with this philosophy, we are very proud that “Rigas Hotel Skopelos” is Green Key certified.
  • Oppose discrimination: We always treat all our employees and job applicants on a non-discriminatory basis. Our primary focus is the continuous professional and personal development of all our employees in order to fully contribute to the vision of our small hotel group. During the high season, we are happy to employ about 160 people in our team.
  • Safety comes first: The well-being and safety of our personnel and guests has always been our priority. Now, more than ever, in light of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, we focus on the health and safety of all our guests and employees. All our properties have received “Health First” certification by the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels.

Our Initiatives

In our effort to attract as many guests as possible to visit and explore the beauties of our island throughout the year, we have adopted a number of pioneering services. Our “Sunny Skopelos Winter Residencies” programme, our “Hotel + Flight” programme, full transportation services from Skiathos Airport, as well as our most recent Digital Nomads and Remote Workers Travel programme, are just an indication of our constant pursuit of innovation and uniqueness.
