OUR PLANTATION

We aim to become one of the few hotels in the world that grows nearly all the daily produce offered to its guests. Our people cut and transport to the hotel a variety of fresh vegetables and fruit that are prepared and served in salads and platters, as well as the oranges for the freshly squeezed juice we serve daily at breakfast. We also make our own marmalades, jams, deserts, and many of the ingredients used for our buffets and dishes. Whatever our plantation does not produce, we usually source from neighbouring farms.

The Morokambos Plantation covers an area of 530.000m2² and houses some 15,000 Mediterranean and tropical plants. Species of citrus, avocado, palm, guava and mango grow there in the thousands.  In principle it is a commercial enterprise, though the family who own both the Azia Resort and the plantation make every effort to link the two together for the health benefit as well as the gustatory enjoyment of their guests.

This arrangement enables the Azia to treat its guests to a variety of produce bursting with unspoiled freshness, harvested daily from the trees of the plantation. The Economides family invite their guests to explore the plantation, pick their own fruit, and enjoy delightful picnics in the cool shade of the walnut groves.

A tour of the plantation is a unique and unforgettable experience for visitors to the Azia – especially, of course, for the children. Our guests have the opportunity to explore the plantation and see for themselves how these trees are planted and cultivated until the fruit matures to perfection. For a small charge the hotel will also provide educational material and take them on an entertaining and informative walk around the plantation. Back at the hotel we will answer any questions, while they have the chance to sample several products and local delicacies made from fresh fruit.

The trip includes:
• Pick up from outside the hotel.
• Guided walk and explanations
• Picnic meal (optional at €11.00 per person) and lots of fresh fruit.
